"Howard gave us insight on how to manage chaos in a completely different perspective in which I was accustomed to. I enjoyed our dialog and group activities. Learned a ton of new ways on how to set priorities and make decisions under pressure. Howard's authentic approach to all our scenarios had us engaged throughout the entire seminar."
"I was fortunate enough for my company to send me to Howard's class on management prior to transitioning from individual contributor to manager. Having never been formally trained in management skills, all of the topics were new to me. Jumping between different teaching styles from discussion, case-studies, activities, Howard brought us through relevant topics that any manager would benefit from. I feel well prepared, excited, and almost confident to take on the new role of having direct reports. The class has definitely been a pivoting point in my life for the better! Thanks Howard."
"The training was well-balanced between course material and real-life applicable scenarios. Howard was great at providing and reiterating key takeaways throughout the training. He also provided great examples and created simulated situations where these key points could be exercised. He created a learning environment where students could not help but be engaged. Overall a great experience!"
"The instructor was really good. He delivered great information and kept it very interactive. Over the 2 days, there was no point that I felt it dragged, or was bored."
"The techniques were realistic and easy to apply. Helped me gain confidence in some things that I already knew how to do, I just didn't know how to put into action."
CORPORATE TRAINING SOLUTIONS' CLIENT STORIES
“After taking the Communication for Supervisors Class, my first-line supervisors and I set up recurring bi-weekly one-on-one meetings with our employees and go through the talking points suggested by Howard. These one-on-ones have been a great way to hear how work is going for our staff and what assistance may be needed by them. It also opens up other lines of conversation and leads to a more complete understanding by the supervisor of good things and challenges our employees are facing.”
...Howard brought us through relevant topics
that any manager would benefit from.
“Howard’s Flex and Adapt guide to different personalities and how best to communicate with them has been invaluable. It helps me prepare to convey information to people in a way that makes sense to them and leads to better understanding. It also reduces my anxiety when I am preparing for a challenging meeting as it helps me to effectively craft my message towards a person’s communication preferences. For example, we have a new team member who is a strong dominant and it’s been very helpful to know to just get to the point with this person.”

MANAGEMENT COACHING CLIENT STORIES
“Just wanted to say “thanks” one more time…by far THE BEST training I’ve ever attended!”
- Crystal Pritchard, Okanogan Behavioral HealthCare
“Howard, I’ve been receiving your Soundbites since you started sharing them with your Fulcrum Point community. I always found them interesting and amusing. However, I’ve recently been made a team leader at work, and I now find your Soundbites to be helpful as I navigate my new role and try to avoid the pitfalls that you write about. The most helpful perspective about the Soundbites is that they focus on the work that needs to be done and each person’s actions and behaviors while reminding me to stay away from personality issues or personal biases. Thanks for your valuable input – keep them coming!”
