TESTIMONIALS

 

Ken offered us not only comprehensive profiling analysis focused on our precise hiring needs, but also timely & helpful support from their knowledgeable personnel. Ken and team took all the guesswork out of our hiring process. Strong product implementation, process; support offering desired results.

Ted Caulkins,
- President, COO | GOLDLEAF HOMECARE

Ken was an amazing resource for Symmetry 360 Massage in finding the perfect candidate for a vital position in our company. Being a fast growing service business requires a very unique type of leader to balance strong business acumen with the heavy interpersonal intelligence required to manage so many care-giving personalities. Our company had seen a tremendous amount of growth over a short period and the transition that comes along with that rate of growth made it imperative that we get the right person for the job the First time. All the testing provided by Ken was invaluable for finding the right fit. The thorough and clear breakdowns we were provided with helped us find an amazing asset to our team who we may not have considered without the team's input. Ken was extremely responsive and cognoscente to the individual needs of our business which made it easy to find the right person far quicker than we expected. We look forward to working with Ken again for future high level hires and I would highly recommend Ken and team to any business with complex hiring needs.

I've worked with Ken in a variety of business situations. Ken is a creative thinker who has a great appreciation for the people side of business. He always brought a unique and valuable perspective to issues that were confronted, and he always conducted himself with the highest standard of ethics.

Mike Starkle,
- Managing Director | Timepiece Capital Inc.

Ken and team helped Antonoff & Co. with personality and skills testing for candidates for a vitally important position at our company. Ken Greenberg was extremely responsive to our needs and turned the tests around speedily (within ½ a day of receiving the completed tests). The tests were very useful to understand the intelligence, skills and personality of each of the final applicants. The test results were invaluable in helping to confirm (or put in doubt) information we had gathered through the application and interviewing process. In addition to providing the test results, Ken spent time helping us to understand both the meaning of the tests and how to utilize the test results in the onboarding process to help to understand critical potential shortcomings of each potential employee as well as his/her needs and desires. When we decided on a particular candidate, Ken advised us of particular actions we could take that would serve to enhance the likelihood of a successful long-term employer/employee relationship. Through the process of testing and consultation with Ken, we found an employee who has turned out to be a great fit for the position and for our company. We were also able to eliminate some candidates who interviewed well, but who had shortcomings we likely would not have discovered until we had already hired that person. I would highly recommend Ken and team for assistance in the hiring process.

Douglas S. Antonoff,
- CEO, Antonoff & Co. Denver, CO

The training Ken and team provided was excellent. The trainer's knowledge of the oil and gas industry combined with the interactive nature of the course resulted in a motivated and energized sales force. I would recommend this training to any organization looking to invest in their people to gain a competitive advantage in their marketplace.

Michael J. Marino,
- President & CEO | Well Master Corporation

I have known Ken and his organization for 3+ years. Our organization has used his selection tools and we have recommended Ken to our clients. Ken is extraordinarily knowledgeable, an A+ level consultant, very customer service oriented, ethical and transparent. Every project he manages has reflected the quality, quantity and timeliness he promised. I would recommend his organization to anyone.

Walker Williams,
- Forte Human Resources

We reached out to Ken and team to help with the professional development of one of our senior managers. The senior manager plays a dual role of leading a team of software programmers and working with our sales group to support customer acquisition and customer interface during implementation. Over a two month period Ken was able develop skills and behaviors in our senior manager that not only made him a more effective leader of his team, but also a tremendously improved contributor to our sales process. This improvement has made an immediate and material improvement to sales outcomes. We can highly recommend this group for professional development of mission critical managers and leaders in the software industry.

Senior Leader,
- Software Industry

Ken and his team were invaluable in helping us to become aware of our weaknesses as leaders and also how to start the process to improve those weaknesses to make us better long term. His outside view and past business experience were also a huge help in making changes in our internal processes that not only raised our employee morale, but helped us to improve the overall experience of our customers.
