“We have utilized Dr. Weiss’ services several times over the last few years. In every case, his “Getting to Yes” training has produced tangible results. He takes the time to learn the challenges the team is facing, speaks with the attendees one on one prior to training, tweaks the content to fit the team’s needs, then follow up afterward. Based on our numerous positive experiences, “Getting to Yes” is now mandatory training, and an essential part of our teams’ Business Acumen.”

Both times the sessions were excellent, and the participants’ evaluations were almost a perfect 5 out of 5. He is very good about customizing his materials to make them applicable to the client’s situation and offers follow-up to participants who want to contact him by e-mail. I’ve enjoyed meeting him and I’m looking forward to working with him in the future.”
