What Clients Say

Carol Keehan

Michael O'Brien offers not useful excuses, but insights and help in becoming more accountable and happier in personal and work life.

Robert Shroder

Dr. O'Brien was extremely effective in convincing our management and executive staff that it is critical to change their own hearts and minds before they will be able to change others that they wish to lead. He did this in a style that was fun, energizing, and effective.

Bill Thompson

By participating directly in our executive staff meetings, the O’Brien Group was able provide immediate and very specific feedback that helped us breakthrough to a new level of performance. The team now has direct, constructive dialogue that is allowing us to improve our team performance and reach better decisions.

Jane Durney

O’Brien Group’s underlying premise is that leadership is about getting good work done. They help us clearly see that concept by weaving their approaches directly into the work we are already doing, so their concepts start paying dividends day one.
