Organization & Leadership Consulting

Client Testimonials

When you are on a quest for transformative solutions that change your organization from the inside out, the professional consulting services of TurningWest help guide you to success. Here are a few testimonials from our satisfied clients.


Prime Time Shuttle began in 1984 to serve the needs of Los Angeles County as it prepared for the world to come for the Olympics. The world of transportation has changed dramatically since then and Prime Time Shuttle sensed the need to move to the new shared ride model of service delivery.

The leadership knew that critical to establishing a new business model was intentionally shaping a new organizational culture and then maintaining that culture side-by-side with the culture of the existing business. For expert guidance, Prime Time Shuttle engaged the Organization and Leadership Development expertise of TurningWest. The new company, Opoli®, has been born and is expanding operations to compete with Uber and Lyft. Its innovative technology is supported by an organizational structure and culture poised for unprecedented success!

Dr. Steven Goodwin mentors me regularly on leadership development and the importance of vision. I highly recommend any of his services.

Elaine Kennedy,
Head of School New Morning School

Steve is an incredible resource for perspectives on leadership and management. Not only has he literally ‘written the book’ on a variety of topics, but I’m certain that what has made it to paper is just a fraction of his encyclopedic knowledge. Most importantly, he knows how to apply it.

Joe Churpek,
Partner The Analytical Ones

…I believe the information you gave me… was one of the key factors in helping our church turn around. Your insights into leading a turnaround project proved to be invaluable. Keep spreading the word and thank you.
