  • 'I have worked with Arlen Burger for about 10 years at several different companies. He provided executive coaching and leadership development consulting services while I was VP of HR at Xilinx. He served as my personal coach as well. I found him to have a direct, to-the-point style, with a sense of humor that can lighten up a tense moment when needed. He quickly develops rapport with the client, instilling confidence and building trust. One of his strong suits is learning about the environment he’s in, and making the development work he does very relevant to the given situation. I am working with Arlen again at a smaller company where, in addition to coaching executives, he is also working with mid-level managers in a series of one-on-ones and Leadership Development meetings in group settings. Arlen is innovative, and provides a full service leadership development offering in addition to customized programs. I would enthusiastically recommend Arlen as a leadership development consultant and coach."

  • “Arlen is one of the brightest people I know. He has very keen insight into people, what makes them tick, what motivates them and how to get them to do what you want. Arlen is organized, and within a short time of working with someone, can suggest changes to improve their career trajectory. He also has a very good sense for organizational structure, and how organizations are different depending on the size and culture of a company. Arlen can counsel you on the effect of different hypothetical organizational changes, and the likely effects these changes will bring on the greater organization and the people immediately affected by the changes. Arlen is great mentor, especially for senior level executives within an organization.”
