“Great practical ways to improve your skills.”

Continuous Improvement Conference Attendee

“I have been employed with IDES for over 40 years and Cheryl’s training is the first that made me feel courageous to be different in my approach to managing my office operations and staff. I developed relationships with other managers who were different from me and the diversity of the group appeared to build emotional stamina, causing all of us to take the leap of coaching versus managing.

The coaching tools I learned assisted me with the positive aspects of my operations and not just the problematic aspects. You learned how to access yourself personally!”

Conference Attendee

“I have applied the coaching techniques that I learned in the training several times since completion of the training with great success. The feedback from staff is enlightening and helpful in allowing me to be an effective manager. To watch and hear the staff be involved in decision making of different issues in the office is wonderful and can be felt in the atmosphere of the office and interaction with management.”

Dawn Swift

“I found that the Leadership Training was beneficial in several ways. Listening to how my peers dealt with a variety of issues (many of the same issues I am/have dealt with) gave me a different perspective. As a FOS and manager I always have an open door policy with staff and encourage them to ask questions and also assist with a variety of issues. The Leadership Training/Coaching showed me that I can be more effective by using a coaching process. For example, asking staff “what can I do to help or assist you?” rather than just telling them what to do.”

Jerrene Meier

“Meeting all of the other LOM’s helped us build a bond and a support system. It was a relief to know that all of our offices have the same problems and issues with staff. We had the opportunity to discuss the similar issues and learn from other LOM’s who had successfully handled them. Cheryl and Mary Pat gave us a new approach to management which will help change our culture. It opened our eyes to new ideas and ways to help our staff that we had never thought of before.”

Diane Prenger

“Cheryl encouraged us to engage and get out of our comfort zone. She gave us a new approach to management which will help change our culture. It opened our eyes to new ideas and ways to help our staff that we had never thought of before.”

Conference Attendee

“As a FOS and manager I always have an open door policy with staff and encourage them to ask questions and also assist with a variety of issues. The Leadership Training/Coaching showed me that while that is good, it can be more effective through a coaching process.”
