- Michelle Chapman, Microsoft, ISS Leadership Readiness Manager
Microsoft expects top performance from day one. The Performance Leadership Group’s “Readiness” program gets people ready to meet that expectation. We are thrilled with the impact of this program.
- Rena Bilodeau, Human Resources, Mutual of Enumclaw
I walked away from PLG with an awareness allowing me to consciously manage the circumstances that dictate my life outcomes, both personally and professionally, rather than the other way around. There is no doubt whatsoever that the Performance Leadership Group changed my life profoundly.
- Scott Bruce Duncan, Director, Information Technology, SNC Lavalin
Prior to attending the Leadership and Coaching program, I had always struggled as a manager with how to convert vision into action, especially when my success is highly dependent on others: employees, teammates, supervisors and customers. The Leadership and Coaching program changed all that as it provided me with the insight and the tools I need to achieve the breakthrough results I need to deliver on a daily basis.
- Chad Parrish, General Manager, Fisher Broadcasting
This program led to the most powerful change in my career. It gave me the tools to do things I had tried unsuccessfully to learn for 22 years. I have changed my style of management to one of leadership, which makes my job more rewarding. It also has a profound effect on the people I work with – we understand our accountability and accomplishments.
- Dave Benton, Manager Application Development, Nordstrom
What I discovered and the abilities I developed as a result of my participation in the Performance Leadership Group Program have had a greater impact on my career, over the last 10 years, than my university graduate experience.
- Richard Krochalis Regional Administrator, Region 10, Federal Transit Administration
During my tenure with the City of Seattle, as Department Head of Design, Construction and Land Use, from 1992 to 2002, I made extensive use of the Performance Leadership Group’s services. Given the difficulties of managing with limited public funds and high citizen expectations, it is imperative that government trains its leaders to be creative, resourceful and ethical. The Performance Leadership Group’s educational work was instrumental in the success of my agency because it allowed us to better understand ourselves as leaders and breakdown barriers between people and workgroups through the Performance Leadership Group’s problem solving technologies.
I wanted to build greater competencies in my executive team to take risks, provide leadership and obtain outcomes sought by our customers. The Leadership and Coaching Program was extremely helpful to me and each of my senior management team, who attended, to meet the goals mentioned above. The teaching techniques gave us both the theory behind why the skills work and practical, real world experience in using the techniques in the classroom and in our organization between classes.
- John Rienzo, IT Manager, Mutual of Enumclaw
The Performance Leadership Group program was a profound experience for me and my company. At our company we were living in the past… not too surprising for a 100 year old company. In the past, no matter which consultants we hired it seemed that we instantly snapped back to doing things like we used to. Because of this, people hesitated to get into action. They spoke like victims. After Dick’s program, however, things were different. After the program, I immediately noticed that the people that who were being challenged and were in action didn’t speak the way the non-performers spoke. I began to use the insights I gained in Performance Leadership Group program and was able to deliberately get my team back into action and reliably producing the outcomes my company required. The ROI for me and the company would be difficult to overstate.”
