Impacting Leaders came in and assessed our situation thoroughly. We have three distinct units/brands and each has its own set of leadership traits, both good and bad. Linda and her team sat down with us and crafted a unique plan for each of the groups. There was no cookie cutter approach. One group needed general/theory management training as they were young and inexperienced. One group needed to bond, communicate and learn to work as a team. The third group had some structural issues and change management was the priority. The diversity in the approach was second only to the effective manner in which Impacting Leaders came in after the assessment and got results.

One reason I chose to work with Impacting Leaders was because of their customized approach to leadership development. This has increased our leaders’ self-awareness of their own leadership styles and their areas of strengths as well as where they can continue to grow. As a result of this personalized approach, our leaders have grown, team camaraderie has enhanced, and everyone has a renewed energy and interest in self-development.

In regards to our leadership development and engagement, Impacting Leaders has been key in helping align our facility’s leadership team so we can be more effective as leaders leading leaders. They began working with our local executive team, but once we recognized additional needs beyond this level, they incorporated two additional layers of leaders into our program. They have tailored their program to meet the specific facility goals and objectives we want to accomplish, and they are quick to adjust and flex how they serve and support us based on our changing needs. Impacting Leaders' expertise and business acumen have helped our plant make significant strides in areas where we need and want to grow.

Ashlea Harris, Vice President, Program Management and Operations, TeleNet Marketing Solutions
The staffing industry is a very metrics-driven industry, but numbers aren’t the primary motivator for me or my team. Linda Sasser took the time to understand what really motivates us, and then she helped our team improve our productivity and accountability by coaching us on using things like our standards and our non-negotiables as motivators. When you are inspired to do what you enjoy and what matters, the numbers will follow. Impacting Leaders and Linda Sasser have helped our team work together better and achieve that next level.

Today's executive faces challenges like no other time in history. The agility, mobility, and integrity of that executive is faced with challenges requiring that executive to stay one step ahead. Linda and her team know this and are at the top of my short list of partners I tap into for leadership development and organizational change. The success of our teams is made possible by the expertise and experience of her team. The journey at times has been long but we've wrestled it arm in arm with Impacting Leaders and Linda.

John C. Maxwell, Leadership Author and Speaker
We had leadership coaching at my previous employer, only not as in depth and or hands-on, which makes a big difference. My coach helped me in so many ways, and one major one was to put things in perspective from a different view or angle. She gave me great advice, tips, and training and would always listen when I needed her most. I like the fact that I can still reach out to her when I need to. Any individual who has the opportunity to have her coaching abilities is guaranteed to walk away with something life changing to progress within themselves or within leading their team.
Jeremy Thomas, Distribution Manager, APMEX

For every leadership development initiative that APMEX has implemented with Impacting Leaders, the Impacting Leaders team provided me with the communications support necessary to help ensure our employees remain engaged and informed about our program, how they can benefit from it, and how it directly impacts them.
