Testimonials for Management

“Your assistance and mentoring has proven to be fundamental in our improvements; you’ve given me the ability to work with my superiors and the employees in each department bringing them together in a safety and production system that enables and encourages all involved. The tools you provide, although often never recognized by the recipients, have helped to create a work place environment that serves everyone from the new hire to the President of the company.”

  • Wetzell, Hansen Bros. Enterprises

“This has been one of he most powerful and inspirational training I have ever taken. This has provided a new positive mindset and approach to working with people in a more constructive way. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to have taken this course.”  – Jose Chavez, L-3

I really enjoyed the Bud-To-Boss 2-day program and found the material very useful and easy to implement in my current position. There were Managers from different industries, but our management challenges were all very similar. The small group environment allowed each of us to share our experiences with others from around the US in similar positions. The Instructor, Steve Johnston, is quite knowledgeable, professional, positive, outgoing and made the course fun. I would highly recommend him and this course. I just wish I took this course sooner in my career.

This training exceeded my expectations. It was informative and interactive which allowed me to stay engaged.

I thought the seminar was a worthwhile and engaging event. It was sort of cool to watch all of my team.  From where I was sitting, I could see that they were all fully engaged.  My greatest take away would definitely be the Trust Equation. This seems to come up a lot, and it’s something that we still haven’t quite mastered, although I think we’re getting better. I know firsthand what it is like to have someone on your team who doesn’t trust you. If there is no trust; there is nothing to build on. That is why it is so important to EARN it right from the beginning, and keep it throughout the relationship.

I hope that I have picked up enough skills and knowledge to be a GREAT coach and a better coachee! – Karyn Mahoney, Glynn Electric

I agree with the majority, this was one of the best seminars I have been to regarding leadership training.  It has, at very least, made me aware of my deficiencies in communicating and trying to resolve peoples issues.  It has helped me understand that we need true buy in and how we can get it.    I have always thought work was work and home was home, but (on purpose) it highlighted that not all people are driven the same and their personal goals need to met as well as there professional goals. – Vito Rubini, Glynn Electric

Like most, I think I got way more out of the seminar than I anticipated going in. The victim/accountability model has really helped me see how to deal with people with negative attitudes not only with our employees but with other trades as well. Also, the ladder of inference opened my eyes to giving everybody a fair shake. Just because someone didn’t make it with one crew doesn’t mean they can’t make it with another. In general, the seminar has already helped me both at work and at home. – Brian Goode, Glynn Electric

I have to admit I was one of the “prisoners” , didn’t see how coaching had much to do w/us as electricians.  I gave Kevin a chance & after a while could see this was good, useful stuff  – very eye opening.  I learned a lot & am trying to use it. Like others, I have been able to see it working at home (especially w/kids ) as well as at work.  I think the positive feedback & hearing were the biggest ones for me. Asking more questions & really hearing the answers makes a big difference . I think I could start with coaching members of my team, & I am trying to use these methods to coach all my guys better so that can advance thru the trade . – Kurt Gronlund, Glynn Electric

I feel the seminar was definitely worthwhile. Kevin made it easy to stay engaged.  There are so many things I took away from it and have started using a few.  Like others I am making a conscience effort to use “AND” instead of “BUT”.  The Trust factor is key!!  I have always felt I was a good listener; and now I have realized I am a good listener when the conversation is important or interesting to me and when it’s not I tend to not be as engaged and hear only half of what is being said.  I am working on really listening and not interrupting the other person before they are finished speaking ( I think I do this more at home and now I am really aware of it).  Setting CLEAR expectations also stood out to me, clearly communicating the expectation.  Also the importance of positive feedback; I don’t do this enough.  Thank you for investing in us!!!! – Wendy Deboer, Glynn Electric

I was actually surprised that this seminar was quite interesting. I catch myself using ‘but’ quite often, ‘and’ I’m trying to change that. Since I’ve been back to work, I’ve noticed how others act – compared to what we have learned. I’m trying to be very attentive when listening, at home and at work. I believe some of these simple steps go a long way. The biggest change is that I actually realize when I’m doing something different than what was taught. Great class, AND still a work in progress! – Josh Laurenza, Glynn Electric
