Here are some of the many immediate and long-term results our clients typically experience:
“We tried the Accurate Hiring System for the first time when we needed a qualified Bookkeeper. This system was able to define the position extremely well so that we attracted highly qualified candidates. Plus, it reduced my time sorting through and interviewing the lesser qualified candidates. In the end, we ended up with an extremely qualified person and a new way of hiring exceptional personnel.”
David Harms, President, i58:10
“The course has helped me see a different side of managing. It has given me insight into others behaviors and most importantly mine. I believe it has improved my communication with my employees.”
Ed Ritter, Shift Supervisor, Milwaukee Electronics
I have enjoyed learning more about my coworkers’ struggles and how they are similar to mine. I have put the relevant [skill point] cards on my wall by my desk to refresh my memory.
Ashley Rohholz, Continuous Improvement Manager, Milwaukee Electronics
“I appreciate how the classes build on each other. They reinforce previous lessons and develop those skills. For me, learning to take the time and actively plan difficult conversations has been the greatest benefit.”
Michelle McGillivray, Program Manager, Milwaukee Electronics
“I want to thank you for your assistance and support in our Strategic Planning process. It’s always a joy to work with you. I appreciate how hard you work to elicit from us what we are thinking and feeling rather than imposing your own thoughts and biases on the process. At the same time, you’re not a passive participant but bring your own energies, passions, and creativity to the process as well.”
Bas Vanderzalm, Executive Director, Northwest Medical Teams
“You are such an awesome executive coach… I have to say your students have a distinctly unfair advantage in the world. An advantage I’ll take!”
—Matthew Lange, Product Line VP & General Manager, Sage Software
“Larry understands human behavior. Allows him to understand not only my words, but what I’m experiencing. He can actually ‘see’ what I’m communicating. Larry reflects things back in a different language that helps me understand what I’m thinking.”
Duane Benson, Marketing Manager, MEC Northwest
“Thank you so much for your help in guiding us yesterday in the V2A Executive Forum. That is the first time that I have seen you work in that kind of situation and you were superb, your skills really shined. Wow, I really think the partners and I are heading in the right direction again even though there is still a lot of work to do.
Scott Lyda, Partner, Montgomery & Graham
“I’m happy to say that the speaking engagement you helped me prepare for was a home run — all the things we identified as important happened and more. But then, you knew it would be, didn’t you? What a rush. I think I exploded out of my chair when it was our turn to talk. I couldn’t wait to take the stage after all that planning and preparation. Thanks for all you did to help me achieve this goal, no, this breakthrough. I honestly couldn’t have done it without you. You have a gift.”
Craig Ostbo, Partner, Koopman Ostbo
“I just spent the last two days in a Leadership Workout session facilitated by Larry Briggs and want you to know how valuable and worthwhile it was. I feel a renewed sense of purpose and excitement with my commitment to my job and the people I work with. Above all, what impacted me the most, was learning more about my co-workers and how talented and gifted everyone is and the qualities they bring to Timberline. The investment the company is making in the individuals in this company is appreciated and will bring great success and rewards in the future!”
Patricia Lawwill, Project Manager, Sage Software
