Over the last 3 months or so my team and I have been studying Stepping Forward together. Every week, before our staff meeting everyone reads a chapter at a time and reports out as to what they have gotten from it. This is probably the most important management book I have read in almost a 30 year career running Hotels. The learning and growth both professional and personal for myself and my team has been nothing short of astounding. Our property is one of the highest producing in our company both financially and in Guest service over the last year and we definitely owe it in a large part to the teachings of Mac McIntire! I will be sharing our results with our corporate office in Minneapolis. Thanks again Mac!

Mac's program significantly changed the way our organization communicated and managed. His book "Stepping Forward Together" opened my eyes to the best ways of relating to subordinates, peers and superiors. Outstanding book (and program) that I would recommend highly!

Years later I still remember and apply principles taught by Mac. The Ladder of Commitment is applied every time I begin a new position with a new team as it helps set expectations and defines the aspiration of how we could operate. I also remember Mac as taking a stand and delivering tough messages with confidence. They were always the starting point for real conversations which are the only truly beneficial kinds of conversations. His messages resonate and stay with you for a very long time because they are relevant and can be applied as readily to life as to business. I often think about how Mac would handle a situation and apply his techniques. He makes a difference at the deepest level of an organization's consciousness.
