Testimonials

The Delfi Group was engaged to project lead our recent CHEOnext Strategic Planning project.  The process used was highly engaging across the organization and very effective.  The resulting plan and its implementation actions have clearly moved us to the next level of business and health care excellence.  The Consultant quickly moved to establish professional credibility with our various internal groups, but specifically the Board, the Executive team and our physicians. The Delfi processes and the personal consulting attributes were powerful enablers of the success of our project.

The Champlain Maternal Newborn Regional Program (CMNRP) was facing the need to review its long-standing mandate to better meet the needs of its partner organizations. The Delfi Consultant led CMNRP through a strategic planning process which included our organization through an extensive environmental scan. This exercise allowed us to define key imperatives, goals and objectives for the next three years. Because of the consultant’s expert guidance and wise insight, our organization’s renewed mandate has put us on a transformational pathway which will help ensure our sustainability. Interactions with the Delfi Group were always reliable, punctual and professional, with efficiently carried deliverables. Thank you on behalf of the CMNRP Network.

Ottawa Humane Society‘s Board contracted with The Delfi Group to provide facilitation and other support for the development of a new strategic plan for the organization. This Group came to us highly recommended and did not disappoint.   Our consultant was a strategic thinker who has a ‘straight shooter, no nonsense’ approach. He was focused on helping us achieve results. Board members who participated in a full day retreat agreed that the exercise was very productive.

Our Delfi consultant was an incredible facilitator.  His ability to bring together a broad range of perspectives and have the group explore the information to come to their own conclusions was exactly what the BORN2020 strategic planning process needed.  He had the rare combination of expertise in content, politics and human nature to get us to a successful outcome.

The facilitation course Delfi developed, delivered and coached me through has benefited me immensely, not only within meetings but also in my day-to-day interactions with colleagues.  With the tools provided by Delfi, I am better able to gain agreement – and even reach consensus – where I have not been able to in the past.

We have partnered with The Delfi Group since 2001 utilizing the Results Centred Leadership Program at all levels across our organization, from front line supervisory staff to senior managers. This approach allows us to grow our leaders from a common base of shared tools and best leadership practices, and to standardize leadership skill sets such as goal-setting, coaching for success, and team-building, as fundamental aspects of our corporate culture. I would recommend The Delfi Group as our preferred leadership learning provider.

As part of AECL’s change management plan in support of our restructuring journey, a survey on communication was issued to all staff.  The survey was followed by a series of focus groups across all business units to gain deeper insights.  The Delfi Group was engaged to develop the survey, facilitate these focus groups and collate the feedback together with the survey results into a summary report.  The consultant’s excellent organizational skills, her easy demeanour and great people/relationship skills allowed our staff to share transparently allowing the organization to  gain much value from the exercise.  We would certainly engage The Delfi Group again without hesitation.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Delfi on a benefits project for our company. In a word, the consultant was outstanding! Her knowledge and expertise in benefit programs was incredible. I found her extremely easy to work and communicate with. Her work is impeccable and thorough. I would very much recommend The Delfi Group to anyone who is has issues or challenges with their benefits plans and is looking for the ultimate in benefits resources.

I have been utilizing Results Centred Leadership for a decade now. As a graduate I have used the principles to fine tune leadership skills such as goal-setting, coaching for success and team building. It also greatly assisted me in attaining a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness for my own career to grow.

As a Senior Manager with the Ontario Public Service, I am now engaging my direct management reports in the RCL program as a way of leadership development, improving their career capabilities and improving their capability as leaders. I am using the tool as part of the corporate culture for my workplace.

Our organization has been using the Delfi Group’s 360 process for more than 10 years.  While the process, results and material provide great information to our Leadership, equally important has been the level of service received from the Delfi Group staff.  I would strongly recommend the process and the Delfi Group to other organizations.

Delfi was very helpful in allowing me to gain a solid understanding of my financial picture – beyond the bank account.  From there we were able to plan and target our goals, including training of our management team (through Delfi) in order to grow our business in a less stressful environment.

I have over 30 years’ experience in managing people and can honestly say that I have never seen a more effective program for taking Leadership Culture to the next level. Forget all of the traditional approaches to leadership training, this is a radically different way of making positive change. The focus here is in getting the teams in your organization relating differently and aligned so that everyone is moving in the same direction, toward the same goals.

 

The Delfi Group do a phenomenal job of addressing team dysfunctions and overcoming barriers to successful team performance. Starting with in depth personal assessments, the consultant analyses the 5 typical dysfunctions (Lencioni) that prevent great teams from reaching their potential. The focus is on overcoming these dysfunctions through strengthening cohesive behaviors resulting in optimum performance from the entire organization.

 

We have been working with The Delfi Group on this project for the past 6 months and the results are nothing short of amazing. We have never been so effective as a team, working together at a level that surpasses any other I have known. While we still have a way to go on our journey, we become more effective every day. Thank you Delfi, an awesome program!
