IDS/American Express has had a long partnership with the Writing to Get Things Done® (WGTD) Program. The Berry Writing Group worked directly with team leaders to improve the culture of IDS’s communication. Over 200 training programs were organized by team leaders. This drove the program through IDS/AMEX organically, as it was not limited by HR or T&D programs.
“All of these testimonials were recorded in one day at the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis in 1990. Each of these executives invited us to film in their office as they expressed their appreciation for their success with WGTD. These are amazing people and I loved every minute with them and their teams.”
Hear these senior executives in their own words share what they love about Writing to Get Things Done and why they used it so extensively:
Senior Vice President and General Auditor
John attended WGTD three times over a six-year period with Lou Fornetti and his direct reports. John made sure every auditor attended WGTD and was using my Audit Report Format for Executive Management, which was soon adopted by all seven of the American Express blue box companies.
