Chris McGoff has become a highly sought-after speaker at management conferences around the country. In 2013, Chris appeared at TEDx Rock Creek Park for a talk entitled “Quad4: Realm of Your Highest Impact and Highest Risk.”

“You usually are the same people walking out of an offsite as when you walk in. With Chris running this offsite, we came out as a whole new team.”

CEO of Large Defense IT Company

“Chris has forced me to think about my problems differently. He has helped me grow as a leader and look at my business differently. With Chris, you do not have the typical interaction – it’s groundbreaking.”

Drawing on The Clearing’s considerable body of work, Chris McGoff has written The PRIMES: How Any Group Can Solve Any Problem. Here’s what readers who became clients say:

“How many books have we read that talk about the need for change? There are dozens, and they always fall short of giving us the keys to lead and drive successful transformation efforts. Chris McGoff’s The PRIMES fills that gap. I started working with Chris in my former position as the Administrator for E-Government and IT at the US Office of Management and Budget, at which time, the US was ranked 36th in the world for providing web-based government services to its citizens. Using many of The PRIMES, we became a powerful, high-performance team, building a team of over 2,000 leaders in the public sector using e-government initiatives. The outcome: the US became first in the world in its delivery of federal services to taxpayers, businesses, and other nations.”

Mark Forman, first US Administrator for E-Government and Information Technology Office of Management and Budget

“If you are interested in marginal incremental improvement and hearing feedback on what you already know, hire a consultant. If you want to truly transform your business and personal life, read and live The PRIMES.”

Nick DeLuliis, Chief Operating Officer, CONSOL Energy Inc.
