“Our Team Effectiveness workshop was the best session of this type that I have participated in during my career. It provided me new insights about myself and deepened my appreciation for those I work with.”

Their commitment paved the way for early trust between candidates and our team—and the team’s enthusiasm made the process enjoyable.”
“BRYANT GROUP manages to achieve the impossible: crafting an excellent experience for both client and candidate. They never miss a deadline, ask all the right questions and provide regular updates. While Sally possesses greater industry savvy than any other search consultant I’ve met, she also brings warmth, authenticity and humor to the process.”

“The BRYANT GROUP team has been enormously accommodating and helpful to me as a candidate. They were open as to what I should expect, and their thoughtful insight, guidance and advice was extremely helpful in preparing me for interviews."
“The BRYANT GROUP team is strategic, honest, hard-working and worth their weight in gold. They represent your organization, its mission and values well… On the other hand: if you are a candidate, they have an uncanny knack to help align your strengths and desires with the perfect opportunity.”
“They have exceeded my very high expectations with the three Team Effectiveness workshops they have led for our team—quickly establishing rapport, laying out clear goals and creating an environment that encourages support of each other and our shared mission. I am confident BRYANT GROUP will be a part of our team development long into the future.”
