“We humans are capable of greatness … Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
-Carl Sagan (1934-1996) American astrophysicist
“We work with leaders to deepen their capacity to access the full potential of human brilliance in their organization.”
- Bruce W. Fritch
Anyone committed to deepening their capacity to access human brilliance must first understand and commit to four personal prerequisites:
“Remember, nobody wins unless everybody wins.”
-Bruce Springsteen, Rock Star
“Collectively, brilliance practices are as close to a generative miracle in the workplace as anything I’ve ever discovered.”
-Bruce W. Fritch
Even rarer in a strategist of Bruce’s caliber is his grasp of operations, his political antennae, and his ability to turn insights into specific steps that I’ve been able to implement very successfully.”

-Cynthia Ackrill, M.D.
Bruce has a brilliant business mind and a very rare talent: he enables executives to transform their hidden wisdom into pragmatic insight that yields powerful leadership results.
For over thirty years I have seen him transform senior managers into great leaders that dramatically enhanced their competence, confidence, and influence. Bruce has helped countless complex organizations hardwire leader accountability into their strategic planning process to guarantee sustained results and growth.”
-Chip Bell, Ph.D., Chairman, Chip Bell Group
We hired Bruce Fritch to advise our senior management team at The Pantry, Inc. He came highly recommended by Deloitte. He was very thorough in his analysis of directors and members of our management team, who responded most positively to his empathetic, egalitarian approach. He helped us address key business matters to work even better as a company and a team.
Bruce has a rare, human quality, he actually listens to what people say!”

I have worked with Bruce for more than 30 years, and can say with confidence that a hallmark of his consulting is that he is completely trustworthy with the highest sense of values and unique turn of mind.
While compassionate, he is also a tough taskmaster. I know when I work with Bruce that he will get the job done well and right — a refreshing certainty.”
-Nella G. Barkley
Founder and CEO
During Bruce’s last day with us, I expressed some anxiety about being the youngest member of the team, confiding that I probably had a lot to learn. At which point he stunned me by saying, with absolute sincerity, “Maybe you have a lot to teach.” It hit like a bullet, and boosted my sense of self-worth at a time I really needed it.
I’m grateful for the insight, and for suggesting I really could take my self-confidence to audacious new heights.”
Our mission was to take eight inner city Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC, and revitalize them, turning them into high-performing ones. Bruce helped bring this about with a skill and agility that was extraordinary! He held in-depth interviews with each principal, helping them to see the coming change as a promise rather than a penalty. And with enormous deftness and sensitivity, assisted us in creating a high-functioning team of educators who soon accomplished this tremendous goal.
The result: the average test scores for the students in the eight revitalized schools rose from the 35th percentile to the 65th – the kind of leap that most educators only dream about – and that made the Center City Consortium a national model of educational reform.”
-Mary Anne Stanton, Executive Director (1998 – 2006), Consortium of Catholic Academies, Washington, DC
“If an organization is not creating an emotional and meaningful connection between its purpose and the purpose of at least two-thirds of its employees, it is operating in a quagmire of mediocrity, at every level, from customer value to shareholder value.” - Bruce W. Fritch
A client once said, “Bruce transforms organizations by facilitating our brilliance.” He goes beyond consulting and gets into the hearts of the people and the guts of the organization and helps build a culture of trust and brilliance.
“Even rarer in a strategist of Bruce’s caliber is his grasp of operations, his political antennae, and his ability to turn his insights into specific strategies and tactics.”
