"Prior to the conference, the Teibel Education Consulting team took the time to learn about the mission of our organization, as well as the focus of our conference. Howard was then able to bring his years of experience in higher education, demonstrating credibility from the start of his keynote. By the end of his session, I was pleased to observe attendees taking notes and making gestures of affirmation of the value of the experience."

"In no small part due to Teibel's early-stage guidance, the University has recognized significant gains within its competitive marketplace and implemented a range of advantageous operational and sustainability efforts, while enjoying both increased revenue and decreased expenditures. As Loyola's efforts on these fronts continue, the University today still enjoys the benefits of Teibel's consultancy.”

"Through the process that we worked on with Teibel, we were able save millions of dollars and uncover initiatives that will help us generate new revenues. This initiative would not have been nearly as successful were it not for the guidance and advice that was provided by Howard and his colleagues at Teibel Education Consulting.

“As Interim Assistant Vice Chancellor of Human Resources for the University of Colorado Boulder, I recently had the opportunity to work with Teibel Education Consulting to develop an all day workshop for my entire department focusing on managing through change.  The Senior Vice Chancellor and Provost brought Teibel to campus to work with their leadership teams and they offered him to us in recognition of the significant change taking place within Human Resources including leadership changes and new strategic initiatives that were making for an exciting but unpredictable future in many ways.”

"Gettysburg College recently had the opportunity to work with Teibel Education Consulting on our Sustainable Excellence initiative, an institution wide self-review of operational efficiency and effectiveness. Having an outside expert to facilitate this process was a huge bonus. The Teibel team brought the experience and perspective that we needed to help us move through this process much more efficiently than we otherwise would have. Teibel Education was quite responsive to our requests and questions throughout.  Their visits to campus and regular calls were very helpful. I especially appreciated their ability to create a hybrid process that incorporated our structures and culture with the Teibel process. We will have significant savings as a result of this initiative."

“Howard's presentation was thoughtful, engaging and compelling. He has the unique ability to meet people where they are, and move them further than they believe they are able to go. The presentation included a combination of structured experiences, a variety of media and Teibel’s passion for helping organizations reach their full potential through the people that comprise them.

Teibel was able to create a safe environment that fostered candid dialogue and constructive criticism, which led to several new approaches to our work. Teibel Education Consulting was a partner with me in my role as CEO, and helped me re-invigorate long-standing processes and enabled staff to consider alternatives to their work, which they helped to create, in order to produce better outcomes for our organization.”

“Having attended the Managing Through Change workshop with Teibel Education Consulting,  I think their model is a beautiful way to educate administrators and faculty alike when trying to move in the direction of new pedagogies and alternative models of teaching. From a faculty perspective, these ideas are not so much about managing change but about guiding people through the process of change.”

“I would say of Howard what I say of the handful of excellent consultants I have worked during my thirty-five-year career: When I talk with him, he helps me articulate good ideas that I did not even know I was thinking — until he asks the questions that prompt them. I recognized his skill in this respect from our first encounter half a dozen years ago and that perception was only reaffirmed during this most recent project.”

“Confronted with some challenging moments early in the day, Howard deftly (and humorously) defused what could have devolved into an unproductive venting session. He was thoroughly prepared for the two sessions he ran, but also nimble enough to alter the agenda in response to the direction of the conversation and needs of the audience.“
