“For several years in a row, Gregg has been the speaker and facilitator for the most important workshop in The American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden’s Mentoring Program: Leadership. I chose Gregg’s book, “Triple Crown Leadership,” for the program because it is power-packed with the essentials for today’s leaders, from new managers to senior executives. Gregg inspires us with his deeply insightful questions, to go deep within and find our true leader: Who am I as a leader? What derails me from being the strong leader I know I am or can become. Great questions, Gregg. Thanks for helping us explore inward.” –Beth Topolovsky, Managing Partner, Stinson Partners
