Testimonials

“I have had the privilege of working directly with and along side of most of the Impact Training and Development team in various organizational, team and leadership development initiatives. Their individual and collective expertise in developing and delivering customized solutions in these areas has been outstanding, and the feedback from participants of such programs, ranging from high potential employees to senior most leadership, is at the highest level. Their excellent blend of theory, practical and experiential knowledge together with their exceptional delivery skills makes such results possible.”

Tim Conlon, Chief Learning Officer, Xerox Corporation

“IMPACT has developed, administered and facilitated quite a few team-building sessions for our group during the past several years. They created thought-provoking, challenging and most of all “fun” exercises that were uniquely crafted to address our specific issues and goals. After the first training session, IMPACT fortified and built upon previous team building exercises. The lessons and positive impressions of the training sessions are clearly present in our day-to-day work environment. Their ability to “read” the human condition in group dynamics is masterful.”

Sherre Ritenour, Director, Colorado Springs Transit

“The Impact Leadership Development session was an investment in our sales team that has paid dividends many times greater than we expected. The challenge was to customize the content into one of our sales training events and direct the concepts towards a sales team. Impact Leadership Development were just the right group to meet both challenges. Through team exercises, discussion, and introspection our team grew to understand how they interact more successfully with our clients and internal partners. They not only enriched the individuals’ understanding of how to collaborate and lead, but the session created a camaraderie and team atmosphere that continued long after the class. In the weeks following our session, the sales team leveraged that energy and toolset into one of best sales performances of recent history. Xerox believes that investing in our professionals is one of the best ways to drive collective success. In this case, the investment was well worth it.”
