“Working with John Gregoire and the team at Professional Growth Systems has been a game-changer as we’ve revamped our strategic plan for 2024-2029. John has been hands-on, engaging with everyone from our Board, to our Executive Team, to our frontline staff and community stakeholders. He helped our agency articulate our strengths and identify areas for growth.

Professional Growth Systems didn’t just run workshops—they created environments where we could ask tough questions and have real conversations as a team. Their tailored approach allowed us to set a pace that felt right for our agency, not rushing decisions but making steady progress towards goals.

Even after finalizing our plan, John has continued to provide support and guidance as we move toward implementation. I highly recommend Professional Growth Systems—they’re more than just facilitators; they’re invaluable partners in our journey.”
