Mark Shreffler

Mark’s role is to ensure that current and future teams of people work to maximum positive effect within their environment. By ensuring that people understand themselves, their context and each other we can improve on organizational performance in a very powerful and effective way. Mark’s passion for creating productive and high-morale teams has taken him to 25 countries over the past 2 1/2 decades. He stopped consulting many years ago because he recognized that far greater value would be gained if he taught his clients how he did what he did. Mark began training people in the fundamentals of management, sales and customer service. He harnessed the enthusiasm generated in his workshops by imploring his attendees to apply what they had learned to their own groups and companies, and teach to others the fundamentals they had learned. In the African context this is critical to organizational success. The general ethos has become somewhat negative and or toxic in some environments. Mark eradicates that and allows organizational genius to come to the forefront where leaders can lead and teams are empowered to operate efficiently and successfully. He has operated in; Russia, Australia, Mexico, United States, Canada, South Africa, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, India, Thailand.
