“During and after my coaching with Allegiant Growth Partners, I’ve seen positive results in areas of communication, leadership and management. Many of the specific areas identified for development I thought I couldn’t help or change, however the training yielded measurable benefits. The coaching experience has made me a stronger professional and overall better person.” Matt Buchholz, CEO and General Manager, MotoRad of America, Inc.
“Jim was of great support and assistance during and after my purchase of a company. The organization I inherited had some good clients but was lacking in direction and organization. Working with Jim, we employed a focused goals program, defined responsibilities, established operating procedures and essentially got the team pulling in the same motivated direction. We are now in a position to add employees and take the company to the next level.”David W. Claiborne, President, TexSource LLC
“I wanted to offer some feedback concerning your Insights Discovery classes and how they have helped not only my employees but also myself. I personally have learned how to understand and communicate better with my office staff. I also want to tell a brief story concerning two individuals in particular, one primary Green and the other primary Red. For the past 3 years their communication ended on most days with them coming to me complaining about the other. The primary Red individual couldn’t understand why the other person just didn’t stop what they were working on and help them immediately, and the primary Green individual never liked how the other person addressed her. Since your classes, both of them understand each other and their personalities. They both have started communicating effectively just by the knowing they are opposites and making the effort to modify how they talk and act with each other. I now have more time to perform my own job tasks instead of being the middle person in a bad situation. For that I wanted to say THANK YOU and your program, it helps us as a company to minimize time wasted by poor communication.” Brian Bierman, WMS Manager & Distribution Developer (RYBG), Standard Motor Products – Edwardsville, KS
“As CIO, the ability of my team to deliver appropriate and focused technology solutions is critical. As part of accomplishing that objective Allegiant Growth was engaged to conduct a team building session with my direct reports and I, to enhance our communication and effectiveness; ultimately to improve our ability to deliver solutions to the business. Allegiant’s style and approach was one the most effective I’ve ever experienced. We were so impressed with their approach and overall effectiveness that we immediately engaged Allegiant to conduct sessions with all teams in the IT departments. When all was said and done the sessions were very successful in helping us to achieve our goals, largely thanks to Allegiant Growth Partners.” Patrick Somers, CIO – Vertrue, Inc.
“I want to thank Jim Malski for assisting me in achieving my goals. When we became engaged over three years ago I had ideas of what I wanted to do but no clear direction of how to get there. Your guidance through the planning and goals process both personal and professional helped me put together a plan that allowed me to sell my business and put me closer to all my personal goals. You were far more than a coach; you were a confidante, a friend and a trusted ally. I did not understand the complexity of the acquisition process. Your prior experience with the deal process kept me emotionally focused when I was prepared to throw in the towel. You have my thanks and gratitude and I would encourage you to use me as a reference in the future.”Mike Salvagno, President, The Cambridge Group, Ltd.
“I had the pleasure of first meeting Marcia while attending several of her training/development seminars. Her style was remarkably engaging and the content was both relevant and actionable. I also was fortunate to work with her more closely through a one-on-one coaching/development program. I still reference the skills and tools Marcia helped me discover today. Her dynamic personality, insight, and dedication to her clients needs are exemplary. I hope to work with her again in the future.”
