What people have been saying about Refound.

“Refound's coaching program is a key part of our leadership development efforts. They provided the structure that created a foundation for our leadership team to foster best practices with employees and serve as a model for our broader management team.”

Tony Deblauwe

“When it comes to leadership style I would describe myself as a homegrown hero. For two decades my performance was judged by two things: intense work ethic and results. Self preservation crept in and ultimately became the key to my success. The Refound experience has removed blinders and allowed myself and my team to focus on the true keys: unified vision and team development. It has opened doors to conversations I never thought possible. We highlight and build on employee strengths rather than solving weaknesses. Trust and vulnerability are taking shape. Having an unbiased perspective in my Refound coach was crucial to self reflection and retooling my communication skills!”

Sean Madden

“The best part of my coaching experience has been the self discovery process. I have developed a deeper level of self confidence and have found my voice again. My coach listened to me without judgment and created a very nurturing, safe, supportive and engaging environment to allow me to be myself.”

“After Refound’s involvement, I observed a step gain in ownership across the organization. Jonathan and the team helped our team to think through the issues we had at our organization and provide an easier solution. Using Refound’s framework for Good Authority, we had a really good quarter last year. We extended our contract with Refound and now the whole company is going through the coaching. So we see that Refound made a difference to our company and our lives. We are very thankful to the Refound team.”

“After going through Refound coaching, my team has told me that work has become more of a collaborative environment. And they have the space to express their concerns without being shut down. And they are not shy anymore.”

"[Other leadership coaching programs] have seemed very one sided, more along the lines of they already had their mind made up, and they knew the things that I needed to work on. So they were coaching me to the specific issues. But my Refound Coach, Jessica, brought a very fresh perspective into how to how to receive and deliver communication to specific leaders in the building. It was phenomenal.”

P.J. Roeder

Assistant Production Manager

“Good for curious leaders which I fall into, I took this and was like, oh, this is helpful and informative. This is good for correcting leaders that are struggling or even for young leaders that have no experience. It is a clear linear system that can help you walk through a coaching to disciplinary relationship with your employees.”

James P.

Good Accountability Course Participant

“This is a good anchor to understand how to manage together and grow leaders because early in a career it is intimidating, it's scary, and this is a good understanding of how to reach that next level.”

Emily W.

“I want to share this experience, the workbook, and the handouts to everyone because you don't want to be the only one who knows this like secret sauce. You want to share the secret sauce!”

"I ran across the Accountability Dial® framework which captured every feeling I had about how feedback works that is respectful and hopeful and supportive. The approach you've outlined feels more human-centered than anything I've seen in my career. Can't wait to learn more!"

Elizabeth Vaden

“This program created a shift in me that keeps paying for itself, over and over.”

"Every day, I mean every single day, I hear from someone on the executive team something meaningful about the coaching they're getting from Refound."

Wes Sloan

"The Soul of the Role allowed my team and I to really hone into the essence of their roles. We've been able to take our implicit promises to each other, and turn them into explicit agreements, aligned and clear on what we expect from each other. I feel more confident stepping away from key areas of the organization knowing that my team and I are aligned on what they have full ownership over in the company."

“Good Authority is a modern classic, and it will redefine what it means to be the boss."

“Refound did a masterful job of facilitating our executive offsite. It went where it needed to go, and I thought you adapted so beautifully. You wrangled the leaders to keep things on track with allowing just the right amount of push-back. I’m sure it felt natural to you, but it was really impressive facilitation. Thank you.”

Dave Myer

VP, HR and General Affairs

“I just wanted to close that above all things I appreciated about Refound (stickiness of content, your amazing book, etc.) I'm most impressed with your team. I really enjoyed having them here. They have the perfect level of engagement, clarity, and warmth to marshal the content with our teams without feeling like consultants. I'll elaborate more when we talk, but I'm really glad we engaged despite my crazy schedule of competing priorities.”

Betty Fletcher

“Yes the numbers have gotten better, but this work does so much more than that. Refound has helped us become more resilient as leaders and as an organization. We’re able to work together and have the conversations that matter, even under stress. It changes everything.”

“At CyberCube we take employee development very seriously. Our managers are measured on whether every team member is doing the best work of their career. We worked with Refound because their content is insightful and relevant. This workshop is very engaging and enabled our managers to discuss the challenges they are facing in a format that is both open and structured. The Good Authority framework allows managers to find non-obvious solutions for their challenges.”
