Joe Sonne is one of those “rare original” individuals in a world of copycats and people who often settle for the status quo. I have worked extensively with Joe on collaborative developments across the USA-Canada border. That has required a lot of shared understanding and trust. One of the things that I have enjoyed about Joe is that he is an intense listener who really “gets it” at several levels in a meeting or a dialogue. He engenders instant rapport, is deep on relationships, and long in areas such as dependability, faithfulness, and results. People who work with Joe desire to do so again and again. I would welcome any opportunity to partner and collaborate with Joe in the future!
