[Influencing Options®] has helped us learn to communicate more effectively which has brought the team together again, and sales got back on track with where they’d been before the trouble had started. Now, everyone has a positive attitude and the employees are dedicated to working together to increase sales and grow the company. I am really thrilled with the outcome. [Influencing Options®] helped our team trust each other and communicate much more effectively, and start to work as a team again. The impact for my company has been dramatic.

Community Health Care has had the pleasure of working with [Influencing Options®] on several important projects over the last three years. As we started the project, there was significant mistrust, misunderstanding, and a lack of confidence regarding our ability to work together as a team. There was a long list of unresolved issues. [Influencing Options®] provided coaching for myself and others in the organization. I believe this made a very positive impact on Community Health Care. I would encourage organizations with challenges such as those we had to consider using [Influencing Options®]’s high level consultation and coaching skills to help them take positive steps towards being more effective individually, working better together, and accomplishing more as an organization.

David Flentge, CEO Community Health Care

Influencing Options® was contracted to work with a staff historically unable to communicate with one another professionally and personally. They worked closely with me and my Instructional Facilitator to self-diagnosis our staff’s strengths and challenges. Their expertise enabled them to see clearly the path toward healing we would take. They set to work immediately building the relationships with our teacher leaders to create anchors for the work.

Maria Agnew brings professionalism and excellence as well as real life relatable experience to her talks. I have had the opportunity to work with Maria both as a colleague and student. I always find myself attentive and hanging on every word. She recently was a Key Note speaker at our annual Incident Management Team conference in Redmond, Oregon. Maria talked about Integration and Team Cohesion. With this she gave the audience “take-a-way” tools to improve the communication between each other as well as those we provide a service to. These techniques have proved valuable both personally and professionally for me. Thank you once again.

Maria Agnew’s communication skills have always impressed me. Her ability to talk one on one and in large groups with the same ability and comfort level is impressive. Not only is she knowledgeable about communication technique but she displays it continually, always practicing what she teaches. She is passionate and dedicated to helping people improve their communication and their relationships. I have and will continue to recommend Maria to people who are looking to improve their quality of life.

I just want you to know that I am really learning a LOT in this course and it has been the SINGLE MOST important professional development experience of my life. I feel like these are techniques that can make me a superstar and I just need to put the time in to continue practicing. The more I practice these things, the more they will become natural. THANK YOU for your skills and encouragement.

Our whole team had the opportunity to experience the [Influencing Options®] training. The session was customized to our industry and focused on communication and conflict resolution skills. Since this experience, our team members’ skills in this area have dramatically improved both internally and externally. As a professional services project management company, communication is quite literally the most important single contributing factor to our success, and in that sense, [Influencing Options®]’s customized training and tools made a huge impact on the bottom line.

Jill Grenier President, Cascadia PM

The techniques taught in your leadership classes are the 1st in over 20 years of Law Enforcement experience which have tied together the philosophy of a mission and vision driven organization. I walked away from your [MHPGT] training with the “ahhh. That’s how it all goes together,” feeling. Using the techniques you provided through training, my leadership team has been successful in achieving our goal and as a result, our agency provides quality service to the taxpayers of Lewis County.
