 Dr. Silver is the principal of Silver Consulting, Inc., an independent consulting practice, where he has worked with hundreds of client organizations in health care, higher education, high tech, government, business services, manufacturing and non-profit.  His consulting focuses on two key areas: developing and improving leadership; and creating high engagement, high performance workplaces.  He provides such services as executive coaching, leadership training, team development, conflict resolution, building effective workplace partnerships, strategic planning, and organizational/team diagnosis.

Dr. Silver has developed a unique business process called the Workplace Covenant, which helps parties in any organization to exchange and agree upon reciprocal obligations and expectations so as to ensure empathy, respect, trust, alignment and two-way feedback in their work relationship. In 2021, he co-authored a book, entitled Meaningful Partnership at Work: How The Workplace Covenant Ensures Mutual Accountability and Success Between Leaders and Teams, to bring the concept to a wider audience.

From 2000 to 2014, Dr. Silver was a part-time Assistant Professor and taught Masters level students in Human Resource Development (HRD), teaching first at St. John Fisher University, and then at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
