A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.

Today’s blog turns our spotlight, internally, on David Barnes, Principal, Barnes Management Group. Contact David at: [email protected]; 416-800-2914 x 101
BMG, thru David’s leadership is committed to the principles of social development and building stronger communities. David leads the values of the firm and he sets the tone of our work and it is apparent that the firms associates appreciate the path he has carved out for BMG.
The following blog segment contains a reflection piece from David which expresses the values of BMG and the expectations of like minded associates that work with David. David has the following to say:
“At BMG, each and every one of us believes that we do our best work when we deeply listen to our clients. Together we bring our consulting experience and passion along with a deep knowledge and understanding of our clients. We co-create solutions that work for them. Solutions that are practical, on budget and on time.”
David continues, “each and every one of our associate’s bring a wealth of knowledge and experience but most importantly, they all share the values that we hold as an organization. We believe in together! We believe that by building trusting relationships and listening to all stakeholders, by bringing the best minds to the table, we can achieve the outcomes that our clients expect as well as the outcomes that we set for ourselves.”
Through the BMG blog, over the next few months we will not only share client profiles but also share with you, the profiles of the consulting associates who have chosen to work with BMG. The BMG Blog will spotlight the partnership of the associates that share the values of BMG and have a deep and strong commitment to making a difference both within the client organizations that we are privileged to work for as well as supporting the capacity building within the broader community context.
David commits that over the next few months, BMG will be sharing more stories about how we would like to accomplish these goals but first would like to introduce you to some of the very special people who have chosen to align their consulting practice with the BMG firm.
We hope you will find the associate profiles that intermingle with client profiles to be informative. We hope the information will encourage you to reach out to us to share your ideas and your thoughts as we move forward.
