I have used Gregg Yamanaka’s training services on several occasions while leading two observatories on Mauna Kea and have always found his guidance on complex matters to be insightful and invaluable, whether they involve challenges associated with individuals, groups, or the entire observatory. Gregg blends modern management techniques with a unique sensitivity to “local” perspectives that any organization with a diverse staff would benefit from.
