“DeLaPorte & Associates, Inc. and my firm have truly partnered to create sustainable value for both organizations and individual “skills for life” for our employees.  One of the more important factors in considering them as partners is the in depth discovery that they perform and subsequent strategy formulation to achieve measurable lasting results.  DLP&A is not a “one size fits all” organization.  Based on a company’s needs and level of commitment they will help formulate a strategy to achieve goals.  DLP&A will not tell you what you want to hear; instead they provide accurate insights and feedback throughout the duration of any project.  In addition, their strategies include appropriate exit plans for the client to sustain the desired state without facilitation.”

“The DeLaPorte team has been an integral partner to me personally in every business I led over the last 30 years.  Our culture would not be what it is today without their expert guidance and collaboration.  They have been instrumental on many fronts – from growth strategies including mergers and acquisitions to working with our people from hourly employees to our most senior executives to maximize performance.”

Dale P. Bennett

Executive Vice President



“DeLaPorte & Associates, Inc. has helped us create a unique culture based on high performance.  They help us execute both strategically and tactically. 

They solve real problems and in many cases help us pioneer solutions to problems ahead of time.

We have partnered with them to develop our leaders across all of our businesses both at Lockheed and GE for decades.”

We partnered with DeLaPorte & Associates, Inc. in an effort to accomplish several key objectives:

1.  To develop clear and integrated Visions, Missions, and Values across our international manufacturing sites;

2.  To develop the leadership and management competencies of our manufacturing staffs (including those of our Directors and their reports) and Corporate Division Staff;

3.  To create a common language among our leaders, managers, supervisors, and team leaders in regards to Interpersonal Relationships, Continuous Improvement, Leadership, Management, and Organizational Change.

They have truly partnered with us and have always put win/win, mutual interests ahead of ones that are short-sighted.  They have helped us to keep the end in mind and work toward raising the bar, particularly when the bar seemed to move.  Having worked with DLP&A, I can attest to the value and clarity they bring organizations through their efforts and values-based solutions.  I believe they are by no means the typical “consulting” firm.  They are indeed partners and will view your business from a stewardship-mindset.  I have found this to be true time and again.

“DeLaPorte & Associates, Inc. have been a great ally for me personally since the mid 90’s when I joined Bausch & Lomb.  As I progressed in my career and moved to Bristol Myers Squibb and Merck, they have been key in helping us to develop our talent, culture, and teams globally.”
