TESTIMONIALS

Construction Services Group

"Very easy to understand concepts and information. The Leadership Institute has brought me better self-awareness and I have spent more time thinking about how I can improve my interactions with the folks I am working with."

Ken Kuiken

CSG Associate Director

Educational Service District 112 | Construction Services Group

"The Leadership Institute has impacted my leadership through self reflection and top of the mind awareness as to what leadership means - and a good reminder that leadership is not a one-and-done event, it's a long term, consistent, approach to behavior that sustains over the good times and the difficult ones. Being mindful and reminded of being mindful monthly helps sustain this thinking."

"Go Beyond’s Leadership Academy and Administrator Retreat - Thank you. All sessions have been a positive experience for me and this was the best one yet. I appreciate the trust and safety to share. I love this training because it is for me as a leader, not something to learn and take back to others. The focus on us as leaders and how to improve ourselves as people and "bosses" is valuable, worth the time and much appreciated."

"I have recently completed a year-long leadership training with Go Beyond's Leadership Academy.  I feel blessed to have this special time with my colleagues to reflect, develop a professional growth plan and most importantly learn to lean on my strengths while growing in my areas that need growth.  The trainer's methods allowed us as a group to truly focus on our districts' specific needs all while growing as individuals." 

Rick Pelkie

"Go Beyond's Leadership Academy allowed me to become a more self-aware leader. It assisted me in maximizing my strengths and the strengths of my co-workers to make gradual effective change.

The academy also allows me to harness the potential talent of my peers based on their particular strengths and how all our strengths interact on our team."

"I am not the same person now since going through the Go Beyond Consulting Leadership program that I was before starting the program. I now have an in-depth understanding of why and how individuals differ from others when it comes to thoughts, feelings, and reactions to every aspect of life, whether it’s personal or business. Every individual has their own history. Every person has their own experiences.  Those experiences and history are what shapes an individual’s reasons for why they feel a certain way and why they may react one way while another, with their own history and experiences, feel and react in a totally different way.  This program doesn’t just touch these issues with lectures and activities in a day or two like so many other leadership programs. Go Beyond Consulting doesn’t just scratch the surface and make you think about these issues but it digs deep, so deep that when you go through it you don’t just think, your mind opens up like never before."
