 "I went to Doug's seminar when he was in Kansas City. I was so impressed that I spoke with him about customizing a program for my sales employees focusing on leadership and sales. We worked on a program together and he came into Kansas City. The seminar he put on was invaluable. The tools he showed everyone and the way he interacted with my employees was top notch.  I have challenged him many times since about how to handle certain business situations. Each time he has given me great ideas. I have seen and met many consultants over my career. He is far and above the best and the most helpful. I would highly recommend him and I wouldn’t say that if I did not mean it."

"Our day of retreat with Doug was great- we moved forward as a team and a company!"
“Dear Doug, I wanted to let you know the good news, that we just this week sold our shop. As you may remember, Eddie and I purchased Marion Smith Florist 10 years ago with virtually no equity to our name. We were able to get $650,000 for the business, and are holding no notes, during a challenging retail environment. I think back often and realize that none of this would have been possible without your dedication and creativity. I can’t thank you enough for not discarding our intentions and instead working with us to help us realize our dream. Now I have new dreams, and am looking forward to investing in another business, but this time with an MBA degree behind me and significantly more equity.”
"This was an excellent delivery of useful tactics that will greatly enhance our company's efficiency."

"I REALLY have appreciated each of the weekly topics and how they relate to me as a leader, to my career, and to what has currently been going on at work. Week by week each class builds upon the other creating a foundation of leadership skills. The "foundation" points I have learned actually run through my head during work situations. I find myself engaged during work moments and cognizant of my behavior/ bodylanguage/ paraphrasing, etc. I THANK YOU Doug for helping me become a better leader!"
"Doug has been working with us to improve communications within the Finance organization since the summer of 2011. I have personally worked with him for the past three months to develop my own management skills. Both Doug's group presentations and one-on-one coaching sessions have produced remarkable results in opening up the lines of communication within my department, and have challenged me to grow as a manager more quickly than I thought possible. I look forward to working with him in the future." 
“The initiative you conducted for our office one year ago was extremely beneficial and we continue to practice the methods you taught us. In particular, we have had a few “working agreement” meetings among various employees. This strategy has improved relationships and created a higher level of understanding in the office. By understanding each others expectations and coming to an agreement, the office has been very efficient. I thank you again for taking the time to meet with us and teach us the many valuable skills that we still use.”

"The energy of the presenter and engagement of participants was outstanding. The program was well paced and balanced."
“This has given me some great tools to work with. I feel more confident in how I will handle difficult areas of my job. I truly see how just going along to avoid a difficult issue does not help – it only gets worse unless you have the skills to deal with it appropriately.”
"Very good - an abundance of useful materials and concepts that I can put to use immediately."
"Thank you for being great at what you do. Using skills and tools from Leadership Simplified has greatly reduced many if not all barriers that appeared to be present in the professional world for me. I still continue to learn and communicate skills and tools I have developed which has only further increased my potential. The leadership simplified class was pivotal in my development. So, thank you so much!"
