Mr. Guttman and his staff of 18 consultants are known for creating programs and processes that are pragmatic, results oriented, and produce observable change.

Mr. Guttman holds an M.S. from Case Western Reserve University's School of Applied Social Sciences. He has been a professor of organization behavior and management consulting at the Graduate School of Management of Rutgers University and an adjunct professor of behavioral consulting at Fairleigh Dickinson University's Graduate School of Psychology.

Mr. Guttman is the author of When Goliaths Clash, Managing Executive Conflict to Build a More Dynamic Organization, published by AMACOM in April 2003. He has appeared on MSNBC, New Jersey News 12, WMAQ Chicago, and Comcast Network's "One on One."
