Effective Training

"As you know, our expectations for any program at Founders is extremely high, and I do not recall of any training that we have implemented for this level of management to be so well received…I have gotten a great deal out of the sessions myself, and will implement many ideas into my professional and personal life."

"Our organization has benefited from the training provided by Betty and hope we can continue using the tools and skills she has helped us develop. I would recommend that any organization looking for a way to help their managers be better managers to give this program a second look. I am glad we did. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or reservations about this program."

"I am a recent graduate of your Bullet Proof® Manager's class. I just wanted to let you know that I have been able to put into practice some of the ideas you have taught me…I keep my manual on my desk to refer back to different ideas and strategies on how to effectively handle my staff and my members. I truly feel that I am more effective in my everyday activities since I have taken your program…I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn more about dealing with the public and employees."

"The training, although not specifically for the construction industry, was very much relative to our industry. Good communication is not industry specific. Betty's program was extremely well put together. She made the training very interactive, very relevant to our business and fun for everyone. She kept everyone's attention and the subject matter was very well received by the group that varied in age, position, and experience...We look forward to more training with Sharper Development in the future."

"One employee raved that she 'liked the way everything was packaged and presented -- from the slide presentation to the handouts to the team/group exercises'. Another went on to say, 'I think Betty is a great presenter and we would love to have her come back again'."

"You did it again! Thanks for presenting fantastic leadership development training sessions for Riverbanks' management team last month. Every time you're here, I hear great feedback from the managers (great activities, good opportunities to interact with co-workers, and genuinely thought-provoking discussions.) You are a pleasure to have on-site for training as you are always organized, dependably on-time, and ready to lead a dynamic session that will keep our staff engaged."

"Your reputation preceded you and you lived up to it! The Leadership Symposium was a great success. You made the difference! Needless to say, you have raised the bar for any future sessions we plan on this topic…Overall ratings were determined on a Likert Scale of 1-5 with 5(strongly agree) being the highest. To the statement, 'The presenter seemed knowledgeable of the subject matter' you scored 98% in the affirmative."

"Ms. Parker was one of our most successful presenters in 2007 and had the most positive responses from the membership. Some responses from feedback cards were: 'Excellent topic and speaker', 'I would like to hear the speaker present more on this topic', 'Repeat this one on leadership', and 'Really enjoyed; very good speaker'…I would recommend Ms. Parker for speaking engagements and am sure Sumter HRMA will ask her to return."

"Like most businesses, we're short on time, but quite demanding of the products and services we invest in. Moreover, we expect the products/services to deliver on its promise. To date, we're happy to report that the BPM series is more than meeting our expectations."
