Client Testimonials

Here is what they're saying about Richard A. Montanaro, PhD at Career Discoverys.

Mitch Gouze, Compensation Executive

"Richard is the consummate Training and Development professional. He cares deeply about developing the appropriate programs to help the organization's staff reach their fullest potential. He is innovative and a teacher and his passion for his craft is clearly demonstrated."

Anne Houle, Learning and Talent Management

"When working individually, Richard does a fantastic job working with assessment instruments by bringing the results to life with his thoughtful interpretations and by asking his client the right questions. His insights are meaningful and, best of all, pragmatic and actionable.  I experience him as being very positive, approachable and accessible and very open to feedback and discussing alternate ideas. He has the unique ability to defuse weighty concerns, without minimizing them, with his positive, sage, and wise outlook on life.  I also highly recommend Richard’s workshop on managing career transitions. His ASAP© assessment instrument that measures how one manages transitions is wonderfully unique and a value-add to the career management industry.  He takes special care with treating confidential information with the utmost sensitivity."

Fran Trelease,  President at Online Retailer

"Richard conducted my initial screening and interview for the position I was ultimately hired to perform.  He was a true professional, and a pleasure to work with.  He also had supervised my teaching role as an adjunct lecturer at Post University. I couldn't be in better hands."

Jane Bailey, Retired University Provost

“Today we had the second session of two wonderful Lunch & Learns with Richard using our Myers-Briggs preferences to best advantage, and how to mitigate stress by understanding our dominant preferences (and their opposites!).  The Myers-Briggs sessions were wonderful and I hope they will repeat this again so others can participate. Those of us in these sessions learned a lot from them, from each other and about each other!”

Jim Zanvettor, Senior Executive,  Marketing Fortune 500 Company

"Richard brings excellent experience and helped shaped our teams in our workplace to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness. He has also helped me shape my work style and taught me how to empower my teams. One of the best people I know."

Alexandra Gray, Intake Specialist at John Foy & Associates  

"I have significantly more confidence in the marketability of my job application materials now as a direct result of working with Richard.  Of further benefit are his wisdom regarding the hiring process and his interview counseling. I would describe him as insightful, skilled with assessment instruments, detail-oriented, and very encouraging. His manner is supportive, pleasant, and professional."
