Read what just a few have to say about working with Turning Point:

“The strongest endorsement that I can give Patti comes in the form of this anecdote: when asked by the president of our hospital how he could help me with my professional development my response was: “You’ve already done everything I’ve needed. You hired Patti to help me.”

                                                                                      Larry H. Stevens, M.D., F.A.C.S.   Medical Director of Perioperative Service, IU Health Methodist Hospital  & Clinical Service Line Leader for General Surgery IU Health Physicians

“Over my years as a member of the Komen Indianapolis Board we have utilized a number of consultants. We worked with Patti to develop our three year strategic plan and we have received more value from our engagement with Patti than any consultant we have worked with over the years.”

Jane Callahan, Past President of the Board

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Indianapolis Affliliate


“Through both her personal leadership and development of senior leaders, Patti had a huge impact on our results. Together we drove a lot of change and she enabled me to create a company with a high performance culture. She also helped me to more powerfully articulate my vision for the company and for our leadership in a way that inspired and engaged our leaders to make the vision reality. During her tenure at Roche Diagnostics, voluntary and involuntary turnover decreased by 50% from 15.2% in 2000 and employee commitment increased dramatically. Patti knows how to create organizations that engage people’s hearts and minds and this has enormous value.”

Martin Madaus, Former CEO of Roche Diagnostics

Former Chairman and CEO, Millipore Corporation


“The first time Patti and I met, she indicated that I would likely achieve my goals on my own; however, by working with her I would get there faster. She definitely delivered on that promise and her coaching has created value for my company. In just six months of working with Patti I have grown tremendously in my ability to think differently about the challenges I face and in my ability as a CEO to lead and grow my company.”

Pete Davis, CEO & President, AXS Imaging

“Working with Patti has increased both my effectiveness and that of my organization. In just three months, her coaching has helped me to focus my message as a leader. She has skillfully guided me through organizational issues in a way that resulted in clear plans for the way ahead. Her advice is truly practical and actionable. She combines her vast expertise with a caring, encouraging spirit that consistently strengthens my resolve to face the next leadership challenge. My confidence and enthusiasm to lead are growing because of her guidance. I, and the people I lead, can see the difference.” –  Leader of a mid-sized non-profit organization

“Patti is the complete package. She understands the challenges of leading a large, complex global business. This broad business background is key as she then utilizes her knowledge of the business to provide resources and coaching that enables me to enhance the effectiveness of my people. Many of the resources and programs she designed and provided to our senior leaders, I’ve cascaded to my entire organization. As a result of her leadership my business results are better and my people are more capable to drive change and the future of the business.”

Rodney D. Cotton, Senior Vice President

Roche Diagnostics Corporation

“Patti was so committed to making this session relevant to our audience that she created a true dialogue with the audience. The attendees shared real-time challenges they were facing in leading change and Patti presented frameworks from both her book and other sources to address the specific issues. Her command of the various elements involved in leading and managing change was amazing. Equally as impressive was her ability to make the material practical and actionable and her presentation engaging, informative and fun. Participants walked out of the session with new ideas that have now made a difference in how they approach leading change.”

Mandy Bates, Organization Development

“Patti is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject of how to lead change that is transformational. The model Patti shared as she presented on the topic of Driving Growth, Driving Change was simple, practical and yet profound in how it made our members think about our businesses and our leadership. Her style was thought provoking, high energy, fast moving and engaging. Great content combined with a dynamic style made Patti a very impactful keynote speaker.”

“Patti presented Strategically Managing Momentum at the May Human Resources Professional Development Association (HRPDA) meeting. She did an exceptional job engaging the audience by providing real world examples that took our members deeper into the content of her book Mastering Momentum which is a practical and powerful approach for successful change. I highly recommend Patti for speaking engagements. HRPDA will definitely invite her back.”
