MEDIA REVIEWS
"Responsive Leadership has enhanced our capacity more than any other approach undertaken. . . . De Groot's approach has improved employee and client outcomes." -- John Colangeli , CEO, Lutherwood, Waterloo, Canada

"A useful yet practical approach any social service supervisor would find helpful."

-- Gregg Allinson, Beaufort County Community College

"The author has articulated solid supervisory practices which are consistent with my view of the field of supervision in the human services. I also concur with his important contribution of providing students with hands-on tools that they can carry and use in the field."

-- Denise K Sommers, University of Illinois Springfield

"De Groot presents an undercover point-of-view of the social service agency by providing students with perspectives and actions from a supervisor's normal day in the trenches of organizational supervision."

-- Juanita Johnson, Union Institute and University

"[D]e Groot's commitment to the success and fulfillment of employees is apparent in his thoughtful and authentic approach to supervision . . . Through the application of practical and straightforward strategies based on communication and feedback strategies, [de Groot] offers a unique approach to supervision practice based on the `how' of positive communication."

-- Leslie W. O'Ryan, Western Illinois University - Quad Cities
