Warren Green has been an incredible mentor and rock for me and for so many others at LifeBridge. No matter where he is or what he’s doing, he’ll take my call, and be ready, willing and able to provide the kind of counsel and advice that he’s done for me throughout my career. He taught me a number of important lessons, none of which was more important than the following advice: “Don’t forget your employees” and “The only thing we have as leaders is our reputation, so you have to maintain and treasure your integrity and values above all else.”
– Neil Meltzer, President and CEO, LifeBridge Health
Terry Smith was my mentor, advocate and leader over the years. His knowledge of leadership, business, politics and people has helped me continuously move forward, and today, I am the vice president for a major university. Terry listens, shares, understands organizational dynamics and communicates effectively to all levels of the workforce. His guidance has been extremely valuable in my life both in business and on all other fronts. My recommendation of him as a “coach” and mentor is as high as it gets.
