Testimonials

We’re proud of the fact that our clients enjoy working with us. Please take a moment to see what a few of them have to say about our conflict engagement and personal & organizational development work.

I have known Greg Abell of Sound Options Group, LLC, as first a participant in one his early workshops on collaborative decision-making and in the last 15 years as a colleague and collaborator on various projects.

Sound Options Group as a company and Greg as a professional consistently bring the highest level of integrity to every job they do.  It is of critical importance to those at Sound Options Group to add value to the work of their clients.

Moreover, Greg, inspires me with his hunger for new knowledge and quest to do it better.  The desire to keep making the work more relevant means that his training and consultation is always fresh and topical and uniquely tailored to the needs of his clients.

I highly recommend Greg and Sound Options Group, LLC to provide training, coaching, facilitation and mediation or any other related service.

I so appreciate Greg’s ability to present and teach as truly an expert in his field with a depth of knowledge and experience—his ability to draw from authors, text, thinkers, researchers all the while striking some important balance of not at all coming off ‘too heady’.

Greg instead has this way of being accessible to each of us as a real person—one with great credibility as both a parent and a provider—one who is grounded in real life experiences—a guy not so unlike the rest of us who uses these important communication skills in his own life.

Mr. Abell has provided excellent trainings for mediators, IEP facilitators, and other stakeholders in New Mexico and Utah.  The trainings have helped build the capacity of these professionals to conduct more efficient and effective mediations and IEP facilitation.

The Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence in Special Education (TASEE) highly recommends the services of the Sound Options Group to conduct training in the areas of mediation and IEP facilitation.  We have used their services in two States; the participants have been very positive about the training and requested their services again.
