Dr. Iwowarri Berian James

Golden Rays Institute, Nigeria

“Dr. Gruder is the best at the intersection of psychology, business and leadership. He excels at setting aside his vast erudition, and suspending his intricate and sophisticated – yes, transcendent – worldview, to actually meet the human and the relationship in the moment. He listens. He truly hears what is said. He also perceives and notes what is not said. He earns trust by honoring the way the client sees the issue, and he transitions seamlessly and compassionately to a new, more helpful view. This leads into offering a specific system and assignment that rarely fails to unlock the opportunity in the problem. He always shares all of this humbly and with the expectation that the client will take what suits, leave what doesn’t, and make it their own.”
