"SEI works. So far we've sent two senior leaders through the SEI program. Today, the positive impact of SEI on our firm is unmistakable in organization, profits, and long-term focus. The training in systems thinking paid dividends immediately. Just that one session helped us recover our firm's entire SEI investment within a year through increased operational profits."
