Carter McNamara, MBA, PhD

"Authenticity's Action Learning was incredibly successful and surpassed our expectations!"
— Shannon Wallis, Director, Microsoft Worldwide Leadership Programs

"Among my Dakota and Absaroke people is a saying that I can only really translate into English using a double negative: 'I do not remember a time when I did not know him.' It is intended to point out and compliment one who has had a good, significant impact on another, an impact so great that one's history is changed. That is what I say to you, Carter [of Authenticity Consulting], I do not remember when I did not know you."
— Jon Bell, consultant, Somerset, Wisconsin

Chuck Appleby, PhD

" I know it’s been over a month since the class, but I wanted to tell you how much I got out of it, and how much I appreciated the way you facilitated. The content is of course extremely powerful and useful. I am self-employed and eagerly looking for opportunities to apply what I learned. Regarding your facilitation, you were enthusiastic, interesting, respectful, present, flexible, open and eminently practical. I am a professional facilitator too, and I think I recognize an excellent job when I see one. Well done! And I can see it all comes from the person that you are. Thank you for an engaging and energizing experience. "
— Participant in ASTD Action Learning Course

" The concepts identified in the Action Learning course made this one of the most powerful training sessions that I have experienced in my 13 years in the training and development field. I was able to take the content and immediately put it to use, creating a dynamic of self-awareness for all of the project participants that typically is not found in a regular classroom setting."
— Susan Mitnick, Senior Director, Sales Training, Cbeyond

" Thank you Chuck for an outstanding presentation. This is the first time that I have seen our members stay engaged at their tables for any length of time after the monthly program ended; a testimony to the model action learning and your use of it in a limited period of time...Our director received a couple of calls telling her how much they enjoyed the program. A lot of conversations are taking place on the application of action learning. "
— Director of Training, Northern Virginia Non-Profit, September

" Chuck — you were a godsend to my program and to me personally. I cannot begin to express my thanks to you for your leadership and guidance. Yes, I am proud of what we have done in less than one year and I look forward to the seeds we’ve planted taking root and make positive change for my Directorate. "
