Success & A Cool Landing

Organizational Development for any business entity requires strength in the areas of Team Work, Process Improvement, Facilitation, Conflict Resolution, and Executive Function and Effectiveness; all geared toward Continuous Improvement.  The daily and intimate focus on constantly adjusting the “organizational recipe” is akin to a bush pilot taking his clients across the mountains to wilderness destinations.

“Routine” forays may be similar from day to day, but no two trips or clients are ever exactly the same.  It requires a constant check of the hourly conditions and synchronizing execution with client expectations.  It takes incredible preparation, clear communication, planning, team work and the ability to resolve issues, sometimes in mid flight. The accompanying video exemplifies our philosophy and character for helping business clients continuously improve in these areas in order to experience that Cool Landing every day!


Cool Landing helps corporate and government enterprise to develop and sustain a culture of Continuous Improvement through solid work ethics, high performance, improving business processes and clear communication.

As a Professional Facilitator, Rick Daniel was phenomenal in handling the conduct of our huge public meetings. He neutrally and methodically brought forward diverse opinions from the audience under very difficult circumstances…he was masterful and likely the best facilitator I’ve ever seen.
