“Ed Halpin is a Facilitative Leader. That’s what people around him have said for 25+ years. There are three things a facilitative leader accomplishes — with and through others. They produce mission-critical results. They improve core business processes. They strengthen workplace relationships. As a senior executive and Chief Nuclear Officer, Ed has empowered thousands of people to work together to better serve their customers and each other. It starts with listening better and takes shape with informed, collaborative action. Now Ed is showing other senior managers and executives how to leverage their special talents as facilitative leaders. Go Ed!”

“In my 40-plus years of consulting work, I’ve been blessed to work with a lot of smart people. Ed Halpin is one of those smart people. But his special “multiplier-effect” comes in four all-important areas: (1) personal integrity, (2) ability to analyze and solve problems, (3) understanding of how to establish and maintain a high-performance work culture, and (4) skill in building strong relationships of trust. Ed is a top-notch professional who gets my unqualified endorsement.”
