I have had a great deal of positive feedback from staff about Ethan’s style and he has added value here in many, many tangible and measurable ways. In addition, Ethan is an excellent leadership coach who has helped me achieve greater confidence, as well as a clearer sense of vision. I cannot say enough about him and would recommend him highly to any non-profit manager or small business owner who is looking to maximize the productivity levels of his or her staff."
"Ethan is patient and eager to help! He challenged me to consider whether my career path was the best fit for me. As a result, I pursued a new field and was accepted into a Master’s program. Prior to working with Ethan, I did not think this opportunity was viable and was probably going to remain in an unsuccessful job search. I am very excited about starting school and identifying new career opportunities as a result of Ethan’s coaching. "
"Ethan’s suggestions and feedback was terrific. It was incredibly helpful for framing & positioning. His input with regards to interviewing techniques was also of immense value. I would absolutely and enthusiastically recommend his services to anyone looking to successfully land their next opportunity. "
"Ethan has been instrumental in helping me organize and create a strategy to find a career in tough economic times. I find that his approach is proactive and that the skills he teaches are not only effective in finding employment, for also effective in promoting your current job and positioning yourself in a company that is a good fit for your emotional and mental well-being."
"At first, I thought I only wanted to utilize their resume writing service. But then I got laid off and needed them for so much more. The emotional and psychological support they provided was fantastic. They kept me on track in my job search and guided me through these hard economic times until I found my dream job. Thank you!"
"I’ve worked with Ethan to help me with my resume and job search strategy, as well as for interview preparation. He is knowledgeable, focused and disciplined in his job search strategies. His insights and methods have helped me to define and pursue the jobs I’m really interested in. "

"A former co-worker had been trying to get me to interview with her new company for some time. It is sales, but not in my current industry. I finally said okay, and “luckily” had a fantastic resume to send over. Long story short, I start my new job in a few weeks! Thanks again. "
"Thank you for all of your incite and time. You are great at galvanizing and guiding people, and I will recommend your services to anyone looking for small business help."
"Ethan is passionate about career coaching. He provides focused, helpful strategy."
""Ethan is my career counselor. He is patient and helpful in guiding me to find out my career goal. He also instructed me to think about the industry/company/job positions I want to pursue and encouraged me to pursue informational interviews to achieve my career goals. As one of the international students (at Teachers College, Columbia University) who has experienced cultural and language barriers pursuing employment in the US, I really appreciate his dedication and commitment to help me build my confidence and competency in career planning and job searching.""
""Ethan is a professional who takes his time to help those who he interact with become the best version of themselves. He does not focus on giving you generic advice which will get you a job but he asks you questions so that you know what you are looking for specifically, then guides you on the steps you take in order to achieve your goal. His wisdom shows when he speaks, and anyone would be able to learn something valuable when speaking to him or attending any of his webinars.""
""From the moment I lost my job due to company layoffs, it wasn't until I met with Ethan that I felt somebody was on my side. I quickly learned that Ethan isn't just a "somebody." If his resume doesn't speak for itself, then a conversation with him surely will - his level of professionalism, expertise and knowledge is simply a gift for anyone lucky enough to work with him. After months of unsuccessful job hunting, it only took a couple of meetings with Ethan to build a strategy that gave me the confidence and savvy needed to network in today's professional arena. Ethan receives my highest possible endorsement to anyone looking to put a laser focus on their career!""
""Ethan effectively and efficiently helped me to revitalize my resume and LinkedIn. From our first conversation, he was conscious of identifying areas for improvement, providing specific action items, and giving positive feedback. We initially connected after he presented a webinar for GW Alumni entitled "Cultivate Powerful Professional Relationships." Due to his influence, I am well on my way to putting that presentation title into practice in my own career.""
""Ethan is an amazingly honest and upfront career coach! I found him to be motivating, inspiring, and encouraging throughout the career counseling process. He really changed the way I conceptualized networking and encouraged me to connect more in order to go steadfast into the career of my dreams.""

After the training, I utilized the strategies that he covered with our Cohort and I was able to apply them to prepare for my interview (with Cognizant). Ethan provided many strategies to boost my self-confidence as I prepared for the interview and he also provided me with one-on-one coaching to prepare. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in Ethan's candidate training on behalf of Quintrix for the Cognizant consulting engagement. Thanks to Ethan I am MUCH more confident that I will be successful in my career. Thank you, Ethan!""
"As a young professional trying to expand my knowledge in marketing and management, Ethan has been a great coach. His charismatic approach to everything he does undoubtedly make him an easy person to talk to and learn from. Working with Ethan has certainly played a huge part in my overall growth as a professional and an individual. Thank you for the work you do Ethan, I have most definitely learned a lot from you about not only my field but also about myself as an individual."
"As someone who has seen relatively quick growth in my field, I believed I had things pretty well figured out. However, while things may have been going well, the truth is I had so much to learn. This is where Ethan came in. Ethan came in at a perfect time for me. A time where I felt I was doing well, but the overall company faced some struggles that thanks to Ethan’s coaching, I realized I could play a bigger role in fixing. Ethan is like a fountain of wisdom. His years of experience through multiple companies allows him to provide a perception of things that you wouldn’t have thought of. Not only is Ethan’s advice and assistance wise, it’s relatable, it’s palatable, it’s something that you enjoy listening to and putting into action. A lot of times you can go to a seminar, or have a training that can have valuable information, however, the way the information is presented to you makes it very ineffective. Ethan is different in this regard. He’s charismatic, personable, and really knows how to mold a message to help it have a stronger impact. Working with Ethan has had a huge impact on my development and on the way, I process things as a professional and an individual. With Ethan’s help, I feel I have become stronger at understanding how to maximize the efficiency of my team, as well as identify some situations that I would not normally think I was needed in or I could have an impact, and offer my knowledge and assistance. I sincerely thank you for your help, Ethan. I have truly learned a lot from you on how to better prepare, how to better react, and how to truly make my voice heard in an effective and helpful manner. "
"I engaged Ethan’s services to provide ongoing leadership training for my management team. Over the course of his engagement, he has provided critically important one-on-one and group-based coaching that enabled each member to unleash their untapped potential and steer our business forward to ongoing profitability. Ethan has been highly effective at getting to know the inherent strengths and challenges of each individual, then developing and implementing successful coaching strategies that have enabled each individual to maximize their productivity by challenging them to embrace their fears, lean into discomfort and grow at maximum levels. Ethan is an important asset that I rely on to help grow my business."
"I work as a Human Resources Manager for a rapidly growing company. Ethan was initially brought on to do a training with our leadership team about being an effective leader. The training went so well and our leaders valued his input so much that we decided to have him come on as a coach to myself and other employees within the organization that work in a leadership position. He also coaches the Owner and CEO of our company. Before Ethan came on board, we were experiencing some severe growing pains and our leadership team was struggling with many aspects of being effective leaders for their teams. There has been nothing, but improvements not just with the leaders as individuals, but with the company as a whole since we have started working with Ethan. We have Ethan come in monthly for one on ones and regularly reach out to him asking for guidance. He always provides useful and insightful solutions and guidance. Ethan will continue to work with our company indefinitely as he has been instrumental in the ongoing success and growth of our team and our company."
"This was an awesome class (“Getting Your Point Across.”) Ethan was engaging and informative. It would be a great opportunity to include his subject matter into the core requirements for Rutgers Municipality professional education requirements. "
"Dear Ethan. Thank you for your wonderful lecture at the New York State Society of CPAs. I appreciate your time and great mission. I also enjoy reading your new book: The Compassionate Organization: And the People Who Love to Work for Them. Great Book! I love it! I have been reading many books from Peter Drucker on Management and Leadership, from Travis Bradberry on Emotional Intelligence, etc. and your book is among the best books I have ever read. I like your unique perspective on what matters most to Millennial workers and I agree with you that compassion is a central driving force for each organization, positioned for success. I couldn’t agree more that one of the most important factors influencing an employees’ level of satisfaction with their employer is the feeling of appreciation they receive. I believe in miracles and I believe I met you on time and for a reason. I am not the “purple cow”. I am the hidden treasure, looking for the key to unlock my full potential. You have the key I have been looking for. Thank you again! Keep doing what you are doing! You are on the right path. I truly appreciate your exceptional work."
"Coming from the corporate world, over the years many speakers tend to reinforce old lessons, but Ethan Chazin grabbed my attention from the moment he sat down with our table to have his pre-presentation chat. Ethan’s presentation kept the learners engaged, he gave us new concepts to grasp, self-reflect on and take back to our teams. Hope to catch another session to expand my knowledge on leadership beginning with the talent we bring into the organization and giving them the tools to grow! Thank you, Ethan."
"Ethan, Thank you for speaking to our Family Business Forum members on your latest book, The Compassionate Organization. The feedback we received from our members was so positive. They enjoyed the enthusiasm and humor used to relay important information. Hiring and retaining the best employees is in a business owners hands. Everyone went home will a new mindset and skills they could implement immediately. We appreciate you sharing your knowledge with all of us."
"I truly enjoyed listening to Ethan give his talk (“The Compassionate Organization”) at our March 22, 2018 Hudson County Chamber of Commerce networking event/book tour. He is smart, informative, thought-provoking, engaging, and has great stage presence. I glanced around and everyone was intently listening, no sneaky texting or side conversations happening. That is a true sign of an captivating speaker. Great presentation!"
"Ethan, I cannot begin to tell you the impact that you made. We have gotten so much feedback on how much people enjoyed your presentation: Leverage Compassion to Build a Great Culture for Team-Building. Several commented that it was so much content that they needed more time with it to fully absorb it. Building teams and leadership was a theme throughout the day, so I think it was a really good setup. You embodied the spirit of edu-tainment... entertaining with great information, presented in a way that was easy to understand and apply. Thank you so much for sharing your time and knowledge with us."
"Ethan Chazin opened my eyes to the power and importance of building ethical cultures in organizations.

"I enjoyed the flexibility and make up of participants and the relevance of the topic (Time Management.) You were well prepared and took the time to research our attendee information, while challenging the participants to do/think/try new approaches."
"Creativeness, enthusiasm and energy. Your course (Time Management) ideas seem promising and I would have liked to have more time (to discuss, explore) than only 3 hours."
"I have attended many Diversity & Inclusion seminars over the past few years and this (Diversity & Inclusion) program presented by Ethan was by far the best that I have ever been involved with. If your company has a need for a D&I training program, I highly recommend The Chazin Group and its Owner, Ethan Chazin. It will be the best workplace seminar you will offer your employees."

He was encouraging; listening to his talk “Brand yourself for a successful career” made me immediately focus on how I could apply what he was describing as unique, memorable and invaluable, to myself and my career goals. He appeared very dedicated passionate about job searches and how to prepare for them successfully as a student. I appreciated his talk and hope he provides many more!"
"Ethan’s presentation: “The art of public speaking and compelling elevator pitches” was concise and engaging. I could relate to all of the topics he covered. The biggest takeaways for me were preparing your talk to answer the audience’s questions: “What’s in it for me?” and “So what?”."

I am confident that by incorporating Mr. Chazin’s strategies into my job search, I will significantly increase my chances for success. "

"I wanted to reach out to you to thank you for the seminar you conducted at Stevens Institute of Technology a couple of years ago. Since that afternoon, I was on a mission to get my profile better. I clearly remember that you said “Get your account to have 500+ connections. I have just gotten a job offer from a company that found me through LinkedIn without me even applying. Before that I had gotten several other offers, some of which came via LinkedIn. Thank you for being instrumental in getting me this position and teaching me how to harness the power of LinkedIn. "
""Ethan delivered an engaging and insightful webcast on "Creating a Compassionate Culture for a Lasting Competitive Advantage" to our Leadership Academy. His passion and expertise truly shined through as our members provided extremely positive feedback. Ethan was a pleasure to work with, always punctual, and very prepared. We thank him for his time and great presentation!"
"Ethan Chazin was one of my teachers when I studied abroad at NYU. I always enjoyed attending his course “Organizational Behavior”, because the classes were very interesting and interactive. Ethan is very passionate about teaching and able to create a positive atmosphere within seconds after he enters a room. The productive learning environment in his class really helped me to internalize not only the subject matter but also the great advice he gave us for life. Thank you very much for passing on your extensive expertise! "
"This was a very interactive, engaging, and inspiring class (Leadership for New Managers.) I learned more than I thought I would. It is obvious that you are passionate about learning and teaching. Thank you for sharing your experiences, wisdom, and knowledge with us."
"I would strongly recommend this course (Leadership for New Managers) to any young professional, whether or not they are currently in a managerial position. Not only does Professor Chazin cover a wide birth or management styles and considerations, he encourages and enables his students to turn inwards and reflect to determine how best to apply learning to his or her own career. From this class, I took away an improved sense of how I want to develop as a leader, an enhanced perspective on what working conditions / corporate environment best suits me, and a drive to continually self-evaluate how I am progressing and what I want for my career. Not only are some of the lessons applicable to my current management position, they are informative as I look to grow myself personally and professionally through the rest of my career."
"Ethan Chazin was my professor when I took Organizational Behavior class in Fall 2015. Professor Chazin is one of the few great professors among the ones I’ve taken so far because his classes were interesting, interactive and instructive. Also, Professor Chazin always brings up-to-date materials such as Ted Talks videos or important news of the day about business, economy and organizations that leads to discussions in the class. With his deep intellectual knowledge, he plays a key role in the discussions and allows his students take advantage of his knowledge."
"I recently took the “Leadership for new Managers” course at NYU’s School of Professional Studies that was taught by Ethan Chazin. I wanted to thank you Ethan one more time for the course. It really brought a lot of change in my life, got me inspired from the very beginning! You made me research and work so much harder by digging deeper into things. Your course was EXTREMELY beneficial for me. AND IT WAS FUN! 3 hours would fly by unnoticed every week! Thank you for being passionate at what you do and trying to give us as much knowledge as you can (often by staying through class overtime), for bringing such a positive vibe with your great sense of humor and entertaining presentations that made the information you shared stick O much easier! Thank you as well for giving us homework that encouraged developing new skills and knowledge. I really wish NYU made your course a little longer. I hope to see you teach more courses at NYU-SPS.” "

I am amazed about your different experiences and I love the way you always spoke to our (Marketing Special Topics) class.)

I learned so much from you and your class on how to succeed working in teams and promoting an organization’s products and services."
"From the very first (Branding at NYU) class, it was clear that Professor Chazin is very knowledgeable about all aspects of branding and marketing. The class was very informative but pleasantly entertaining and engaging."

This course was exactly what I needed to feel more confident and finding my voice. Thank you!"

I honestly was interested in this topic (Branding & Marketing for Social Organizations) and Professor Chazin did an awesome job keeping the class engaged. I have raved to my parents and friends how much I have enjoyed this class. There were so many great take-away’s. Thank you, Professor Chazin!"

"Professor Chazin’s course (Management & Human Behavior) was highly engaging and interactive. It was one of the best courses in the MBA program at St. Peter’s. Insightful and different than just “textbook” based instruction.

Prof. Chazin is thoughtful, energetic, ambitious and truly connects with his students."

The class (Leadership for New Managers) was essential in providing me with the tools that I could use. I was able to apply the information provided in the class immediately to my work. I’m extremely happy I took this course and fortunate to have had Ethan as the instructor. Ethan’s style of teaching was the key to truly understanding the course content."
"This class (Organizational Behavior) made my Business Management minor 100 times more interesting. Professor Chazin’s teaching style, real world examples, in-class activities and personal attention towards each student are some of the many opportunities no one would want to miss out on. As a Mechanical Engineering student not having much exposure to organizational cultures and environments, Professor Chazin’s class has opened many perspectives for me as I plan on graduating next semester and start building my career. Thank you for an awesome class!"
"Thank you Professor Chazin for being a great professor and guiding me on the path for a more successful career. Thank you for sharing your experiences and teaching beyond the textbook. I have learned so much more about what true leadership is and how to become a leader."
"Professor Chazin is intelligent, open-minded and approachable. Throughout the entire semester, Professor Chazin was always facilitating classroom discussion and welcoming diverse opinions. His assignments were thought-provoking, and he always gave meaningful feedback. The final project in his course taught me a significant amount of how organizations function, both formally and informally. In closing, Professor Chazin made it clear that he loves to give back to his students, and he wishes only the best for them."
"Organizational Behavior was truly a gem of a class. Not only did it provide insights of textbook concepts through the use of real-world examples, but the class opened my eyes to the realities off Corporate America. Professor Chazin went above & beyond for each and every student through his providing career advising, resume reviews, and helping build powerful online (LinkedIn) profiles. He is one of the few, unique professors that actually cares and contributes to his student’s education, values, and lives. I would strongly recommend any of his classes to those looking for the BEST and to be the happiest in their lives."
"Professor Chazin not only taught me the power and importance of Organizational Behavior, but he also helped me find and understand what one should look for in an organization they wish to work in. His wide breadth of knowledge in the industry and his understanding of the new trends in regards to the “war on talent” are incredibly beneficial for young and curious students looking to make a dent in the workforce. His use of TED talks as well as follow-up discussions make the class learning experience much more interactive and enjoyable. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have taken Professor Chazin’s Organizational Behavior class and would gladly take the class again if given the chance."
"Professor Chazin is exceptional. He truly and deeply cares about the students in our (Organizational Behavior) class. He makes the most genuine attempt to give students any and every resource towards her/his future goals. The insight he provides makes anyone feel happy about the choices she/he is questioning. Sensitive, honest, and compassionate are clearly present in his character and translate very well to the students and their betterment in life."
"Dear Professor Chazin. You were not lying to us when you said on the first day of class that this course (Organizational Behavior) will be the most meaningful and interesting class we will take in our undergrad careers. It sure was. I was struggling a lot in the beginning and I actually thought that I would have to drop the class. But, you motivated me to push myself to the level you knew I was at. That motivation not only helped me do well in OB, but has also reflected in my success in other courses. I am so grateful. I hope that we will keep in contact in the future. As soon as I update my LinkedIn, I will be sure to link with you first. Thank you."
"Ethan is a fantastic leader and motivator. His work inspires success and his intelligence empowers the room."

Because of the knowledge and passion for the subject matter of the Professor, I decided to change my Major within my MBA to Marketing.

"Thank you so much for everything. your course (“Branding for Social Organizations”) was very enlightening and you explained the material in a way that was very easy to understand.

"Hey Professor! I just wanted to send you a message to let you know, in case you ever wondered if you were getting through to your students, that I am now working at Patagonia in New York! Ever since your Organizational Behavior class, I have been quite obsessed with just about everything they do and I got hired there today. In every interview I had, I explained that I learned about the company through your class and how Patagonia was the prime example of what companies should be doing in most cases. I just wanted to give you a huge thanks for everything you taught me. I can honestly say that my passion came from your class and I am grateful to have been in your lecture last fall."
"Thank you so much for all of the passion, insight and wisdom you provided throughout this course (Leadership for New Managers). I am grateful that I was able to attend.

You teach so much that goes beyond the classroom and I am forever thankful. Every day of class you fought for us and our futures by pleading us to go into roles/jobs that make us truly happy. You are fighting a battle so few people fight and I thank you for that."
"The things I learned in Organizational Behavior this year dispelled a lot of myths I believed to be true within organizations. Professor Chazin offered a ton of real-life work experiences, and because of that I feel so much more confident with what I want to seek out in an occupation, and how I should go about securing it."
"I enjoyed that this class (Organizational Behavior) was not just about the textbook o tests. This class taught me about values, virtues, what really matters in life, what I care about in my future. It made me think about my values and my characteristics that make me who I am. From now on, I can confidently say that before doing anything, I will first see if it matches my values and if I want to do it. Thank you, Professor Chazin!"
"From the moment you walk into Professor Chazin’s classroom, you receive the utmost respect and a sense of feeling that the professor genuinely cares for your well-being. It was a privilege to have taken this class (Organizational behavior) taught by Professor Chazin."

This course taught me that job satisfaction is more important than the compensation it offers, that the workforce around the world has become really mechanized and lifeless and that it should be our (Millennial) generation’s goal to create a more creative and engaged workforce with the leadership skills and values we will offer others that will come after us."
"Professor Chazin proved masterful knowledge of the course (Organizational Behavior) material, while at the same time remaining sincere with the students. In doing so, I felt motivated and engaged throughout the course and was driven to succeed."
"To be completely honest, this course was one of my most enjoyable this semester and even during my college career. The structure of this class is what makes it great and enjoyable. Great conversations held in class and laughs shared. Please continue to teach and inspire others because for people and students alike, many do not understand the importance of being happy and satisfied with what you do. Hope that you have the best of luck and if you don’t return to NYU, I would love to be able to contact you if I ever feel the need for inspiration or even a dose of reality. Thanks again for the semester."

I truly found all the material and the way you presented/taught the class to be very informative. Not many professors actually *present* the material like you did and I guess this is the reason why I found the class to be more interesting than others. The material you gave us in regards to aligning one’s marketing strategy with business strategy makes owning a business sound so easy. I feel like starting my own business right now with the slides we’ve been given. Your energy and commitment are rare compared to other professors I’ve had and I truly appreciate it. I hope to see you soon in another class going forward. Thank you."

"Ethan, you’re a great instructor. You have the ability to transmit information which increases knowledge of the business world. In my opinion he was one of the best speakers so far. "
"Ethan Chazin, was by far, the best speaker we’ve had. He distinguished himself by arriving early, taking notes to acquaint himself with the students. He handed out an impressive resume, then supplemented that during discussion. He showed sincere interest and empathy towards all students. He used humility and humor to get his points across. In fact, Mr. Chazin represents what I thought the typical WIBO teacher would be. While his experience concentrates on selling B2B, and much of what he shared may not apply to my retail business, he has to be given the highest grade. He went the extra mile and showed initiative. The discussion leader was very animated!! Good Thing!!! He kept us engaged. I like the way he remembered our names and businesses and incorporated us in his presentation! Excellent!! I thought I knew what I was doing (starting a business) but when I attended your Entrepreneurship talk, you took me through the entire process and I felt reborn. Thank you very much! You are a business messiah. Ethan really facilitated my understanding of the importance of passion and personal philosophy in creating a successful business. Very inspiring! I have always admired you since you did a professional marketing workshop at Grove City College in PA. What you are doing to help others is amazing. I enjoy articles and learn so much. Thank you for sharing what you already know with the masses! Blessings!"

Anyone that is passionate about learning or looking for career advice should definitely reach out to him."

Ethan was very knowledgeable and provided participants with resources on conflict resolution, coaching, leadership styles, delegating work, and understanding the aspects of different generations in the workforce. Discussions throughout the training about differences between a supervisor/manager and a leader were very impactful for the group. We look forward to having Ethan provide additional training for the agency.""

Ethan shared what works for him as well as what others with demanding positions do to be successful. Ethan helped me think critically about the topics discussed and what kind of companies I would want to be looking for to work at. While sharing his expertise of 30 years on these topics, he engaged with his audience well and made the learning experience more interactive and fun.""
