"Improving People, Processes, and Performance"

Testimonials:

"I recently had the pleasure of listening to Tim Smith speak on the subject of Personal Significance. It was a great reminder that without the right tools in ourselves, we cannot properly influence others.  We heard about many pieces that play a role in Personal Significance. Some we may have been aware of, but others were excellent reminders of how we can influence others if we keep them upper most in our minds. “Listening” and the “power thank you” go a long way towards helping us meet our goals.  Tim did a great job of relating this information and discussing how to use all of these tools in our everyday lives."
Debra A., Merchant Advocate

"My business networking group had the pleasure of having Tim Smith as our guest speaker at one of our meetings. The topic we selected for him to discuss was "Personal Significance". We are professionals and found this topic, as well as how Tim presented it, were valuable for both our business and personal lives. Many items would seem like common sense, yet in our busy day to day lives it's easy to forget some basic tools.  We walked away with an excellent reminder of what we can do more of and better. Good stuff, just have to listen!  Many thanks and a round of applause go out to Tim. A job well done, we appreciated your expertise."
Deb B., Sales Professional

"Many years back I worked for Tim. From the day he took over I was very impressed by the professionalism that he exuded. When I found out that Tim had started a performance improvement business, I immediately reached out to him to see when he could speak to my group. Tim is a truly caring professional who speaks from the heart. His messages are not only inspiring and motivating, but they are packed with wisdom and lessons that help his listeners gain the tools they need to change their current situation and achieve future aspirations. Tim inspired my group to overcome their challenges and excel in their everyday life."
Steven H., President

"Tim presented to our group of HR professionals on the topic of Employee Involvement - The Sustainable Benefits. He did a wonderful job of presenting material to the audience, engaging the group and most importantly stimulating our thoughts and ideas around employee involvement programs. He educated us to the statistics and data illustrating the sub-par involvement levels of employees, not only in North America, but also with global comparisons. He additionally provided great systems and ideas for improving employee involvement, moral and ultimately retention. It is certainly clear that Tim will add value to any organization that is interested in improving employee involvement and performance improvement."
