"Lou has a knack for asking the underlying questions that  empower both individuals and boards to face the issues that they need to face.   He is the kind of coach that adapts to all different types of situations and personalities and does not bring a “one size fits all” approach to his work.  Lou helped take away the “fog” and helped us create a trail where there was only wilderness.  Warm, insightful, honest, and reliable, it is a true pleasure to work with Lou and his organization."


Bobby Harris, URJ Camp Coleman, Director

"Lou facilitated an effective workshop that brought out each participant’s creativity, positive energy, and enthusiasm. He is respectful of the institution’s unique culture, and adjusts his pitch to fit the needs of the current situation. He is clearly a master of his subject, and brings people together collaboratively, empowering them to move beyond their current paradigm to even more effective levels."


Rabbi Ilan Feldman, Beth Jacob Atlanta

​​​"I asked Lou to speak to colleagues at an event that was focused on career development and organizational effectiveness. Lou was responsive and perfectly targeted in his presentation to attendees. The session was well received and exceeded our expectations." 


Joe M. Piffaretti, Executive Director, Corporate and Foundation Relations,
​Georgia State University

"Lou understood our challenges and provided a focused and detailed workshop that motivated and inspired the staff to work together, understand each others line of business and inspired us to grow as a team. He has since followed up to keep us on track and discuss implementation."   

 
Loli Gross Executive Director at Congregation Beth Shalom

"Lou was hired to facilitate a significant portion of our synagogue's annual Board Retreat. We were looking for a program and consultant that was not only dynamic but would educate our members about Board involvement, proper conduct and goal-setting. We got everything (and more) with Lou. He not only engaged and inspired our participates to stay connected with the program during the sessions, but provided sound and crucial advice that benefited all of our participants. I would highly recommend Lou for similar engagements and programs." 


Scott Zucker, Partner at Weissmann Zucker Euster Morochnik

"If you are looking for an advisor who can provide training, facilitation and successful outcomes, Dynamic Change Solutions and Lou Feldstein can help. Lou provided consulting services for a group of community organizations which thought working together would improve both community-wide engagement and engagement within each organization. He advised the steering committee leading this effort, conducted leadership surveys/interviews, and led each organization's board through discussions and activities that helped assess readiness and options for collaboration. In bringing together the boards of each organization during community-wide meetings, he used a variety of tools and techniques to broaden and strengthen understanding and buy-in. Lou's skills as a strategic thinker and facilitator (and keeping us on task) were key to successfully bringing our disparate groups together to help us understand change and the importance of change, and to constructively address collaboration moving forward." 


Helen Kashtan, Nonprofit President, Rochester, NY

"It was beyond a pleasure to work with Lou! He is incredibly insightful; reads between the lines and has a depth of understanding when it comes to personalities, motivations, and organizing people; and the plans and tools he offers are thorough, specific, and take resources and context into account. I can't recommend Lou enough--he'll stretch your organization and its people to be the best version of itself it can be!"


Alexis Cohen, President & Executive Director at Culture Connect, Inc.​​

"Using a combination of interactive, meaningful discussions together with relevant and stimulating activities, Lou Feldstein planned and facilitated an outstanding staff retreat for Temple Sinai in Atlanta.  With initial input regarding our goals and aspirations, Lou organized a retreat agenda that helped to engender a universal feeling of empowerment amongst our 23 member staff.  He successfully found ways to engage every participant and created space for every voice to be heard. Consequently, our retreat with Lou ended with a positive and renewed sense of energy and direction and we successfully launched a new, collaborative staff goal of working to create a Raving Fans culture in our synagogue.  I sincerely believe that the staff family of Temple Sinai is stronger and more cohesive, enthusiastic and energized as a result of Lou’s expert leadership and guidance.  I have now experienced Lou’s leadership with our staff and twice with our synagogue’s Board of Trustees.  I enthusiastically endorse his work and highly encourage any non-profits in need of meaningful guidance and consulting assistance to consider Dynamic Change Solutions."


Rabbi Ron Segal, Temple Sinai, Atlanta

"Thank you for facilitating a kick-ass board retreat for Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills.  I have been too many board retreats for both for profit (both publicly traded and privately held companies) and social enterprise organizations, this was the most useful board retreat that I have ever attended.  You are a fantastic facilitator.  Every single board member was engaged and participated.  I learned a lot and I know that everyone else did as well. Temple Emanuel will be a stronger congregation because of this retreat."

"Lou Feldstein is a pleasure to work with. His presentation on philanthropy during the Scheidt Seminar to 93 Reform congregational presidents from across North America was well received. From the moment the presidents entered his room until the second they left Lou had them thinking differently and excited about the possibilities of what could be in their congregations. While he takes his work seriously he does not take himself too seriously and that endeared him to our participants, his sense of humor and engaging style was well received. Lou made himself available to all who wanted to continue the conversations during various times throughout the long weekend. We look forward to continuing our work with Lou in the future."


Lisa Barzilai, Director of the Leadership Institute at Union for Reform Judaism​​

“It is a pleasure to work with Lou.  He strives to understand the needs of his clients, works conscientiously to serve them and succeeds!”

     
Rabbi Neil Sandler, Ahavath Achim Synagogue

"Lou outdid himself!  It was a really impactful and, potentially, transformative discussion for everyone.  We really appreciate the skill with which he framed the way we can productively approach important but challenging issues facing the school.  We will be much stronger going forward as a result of last night.  We really appreciate his support.  Thanks so much."     


Ted Blum, Epstein School President

"Lou Feldstein is a gifted facilitator and a master of asking the 'right' questions.  Lou came to us a stranger and helped lead our organization through a very challenging issue with sensitivity and firm hand on the wheel. His ability to 'hold the space' for a conversation is the best I've seen in 25 years of working in the non-profit world." 


Matthew Cook, MSW Executive Director, TVRC Education Foundation
