What our clients are saying about us

  • ...knowledge, commitment to excellence, and overwhelming skill.

    “In 2018, the Infectious Diseases Society of America launched our inaugural leadership training program exclusively for infectious diseases and HIV specialists. We engaged Successful Culture at the outset; for nearly one year. The team assisted with event design, curriculum planning, research, evaluation, and on-site facilitation. Their expertise and passion resonated with our physician community, and they were a tremendous asset throughout design and implementation. We were able to deliver a resonant and impactful product to our community due, in no small part, to Marissa and Jen’s vast knowledge, commitment to excellence, and overwhelming skill.”

  • I Cannot Recommend Marissa and Jen Enough

    “Clearsight Advisors had the good fortune to hire Marissa Levin and Jen Brown from Successful Culture to help us with our Offsite Leadership Training this past summer. They did an incredible job helping us navigate the critically important, yet tricky, issues of Company Culture and Talent Development and Acquisition. These issues are inextricably linked and together Jen & Marissa nailed the content and delivery. Not only did my team come away much better informed, but we gained real actionable insights that we are putting to work right now. As a Professional Services firm, our culture and people are THE critical variables to our success. I cannot recommend Marissa and Jen enough if this is a vital piece to your business puzzle too”

  • We Saw Immediate Results

    “Thank you for the outstanding training provided to our Directorate over the last few months. While other companies wanted to present canned solutions and training, we truly received a well-crafted solution tailored to our specific leadership development deficiencies. We saw immediate results in the way our managers talked and treated employees. The cultural shift we are trying to manifest is based on the fundamental and cross-organizational training provided by Successful Culture and we are already seeing a change. This company didn’t just deliver leadership training, they delivered a full blown solution that is helping us change the organization. I would gladly work with Successful Culture again, they delivered what they promised, when they promised and their professionalism is refreshing and welcome.”

  • Helped Us Clearly Identify the Gaps in Our Organization

    “Our first introduction to Successful Culture International was through Marissa Levin’s book, Built To Scale. As a startup venture in the InsurTech space, we learned how critical it was for us to not only form an early and impactful Board of Advisors, but to also ensure the board would be comprised of the right advisors for our business. Marissa and Jen Brown helped us clearly identify the gaps in our organization in order to define the capabilities needed from prospective advisory board members. Their support throughout the process fueled our efforts into a successful outcome.”

  • Knocked It Out of the Park!

    “Successful Culture recently designed and facilitated our Innovation Training Program. Marissa Levin facilitated our most recent session. She easily kept the participants focused and engaged. It’s hard enough to engage just one person for 4 hours straight. She did it for an entire group of scientists. She knocked it out of the park!”

  • This Was One of the Best Investments I Have Ever Made

    “Leadership has been a passion of mine and a skill set I always wanted to improve upon. Successful Culture has been the catalyst to put my company on the correct path. Marissa has helped me change my mindset to be less emotional and more intentional. The guidance on how to have time sensitive and difficult conversations with my team has truly helped me to stop overthinking scenarios by keeping things simple and bringing it back to the well defined mission, vision, and values of the firm which Successful Culture created, and has been instrumental. This was one of the best investments I have ever made.

  • It Has Been Educational, Enlightening, Challenging, and a Great Ride!

    “I have been working with Successful Culture for the past year and a half. It has been educational, enlightening, challenging, and a great ride! The weekly leadership coaching I receive from Marissa Levin has produced significant, measurable results in the culture of my company. Through the Successful Culture process, we created a strong values system, mission, and vision that provides a clear roadmap for our culture and direction. She has helped me take the values and vision, and communicate them to my team and clients through her participation in our all-hands meetings, and through company communications. The results we have experienced have not only added to the bottom line; they have also energized and further engaged my team.”

  • The right team helped us in finding the gaps in our processes and we are continually working on fixing those.

    “For us, advisory board either validated what we were doing right or what we needed to fix. The rigor and discipline of getting ready for the quarterly meetings had a cascading effect on our internal processes. Additionally, it is very critical to pick the right advisory board members. The right team helped us in finding the gaps in our processes and we are continually working on fixing those. Our company is focused on innovation and, along with working on service contracts, we build products as well. This is very unique in the federal market place. You don’t find a lot of companies who provide federal services and also have products deployed for the federal customers. Our advisory board members helped us with exactly that and established the processes to foster the culture of innovation to support our services and products.”

  • Her Expertise in HR and Training is Superb

    I reached out to Jen Brown with SCI to ask for assistance with training our leaders.   We did a train the trainer session, Jen walked us through the content and gave us pointers on how to present the information.  Her expertise in HR and Training is superb.   She answered a lot of questions and was great with follow up and providing us additional information for ice breakers.  She is a pleasure to work with.
