Bryan Miller, Sr. Vice President, People Division, Wal-Mart International:
Randy has been involved with our Walton Institute of Retailing since 1992. He is part of a small, select group of vendor partners who design and facilitate this five-day leadership development workshop for our store managers and club directors. Having been a participant in Randy’s session, I can personally attest to his ability to work with a diverse group of individuals, present information in an easy-to-understand yet challenging way, and “walk the talk” – an attribute critical to our values at Wal-Mart.
Ron Coben, Executive Vice President Community Banking, Bank United:
Bringing Randy Ransleben into my executive group has made a tremendous difference in the effectiveness of my managers. With only a one-day Birkman session, Randy was able to create a meaningful framework to help us work better together. This was not some theoretical, touchy-feely program that my team would tend to ignore; this was a comfortable, professional approach to improving communications between executives. Randy made the program easy to understand and easy to accept. In turn, this made it easy for us to consider changes and improvements in our work habits.
Over one year later, we still actively use the ideas and terms that Randy taught us. High stress situations have become more productive and teamwork has improved exponentially. Randy is an excellent facilitator and he delivered exactly what he promised. My people have asked for more.
Melissa Debowski, Director of Customer Quality Experience, JPMorganChase:
Randy Ransleben has facilitated the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People workshops for JPMorganChase over the past five years. Participants consistently rave over his professionalism and passion for the topic. He is an excellent facilitator and has proven himself as a thought-provoking communicator with all employees, at every level of the organization.
Mike Brezina, Director, Organization Effectiveness, Hewlett-Packard:
Since 1995 when I first worked with Randy on the facilitation of one of our core programs, he has continually and consistently delivered the highest quality leadership, team and change solutions for us. Over time Randy has become a trusted advisor supporting not only the facilitation of our core programs, but the design, development and implementation of key strategic change solutions for the organization, teams, managers and individuals. In doing all of this, Randy has consistently received outstanding feedback from participants as well as the learning portfolio managers on my team.
Teresa Ratliff, Director, Black Belt Program, Hewlett-Packard:
We’ve had a long-term partnership with Randy starting with the design and initial rollout of the Black Belt (internal quality consultants) assessment and development program, including sessions both domestically and internationally. We are also working with Randy to provide Birkman assessment and coaching with our Master Black Belt candidates.
