The value I’ve gotten from Coaching with you is a continued clarification of skills to lead people to a better environment both in my life and business. All around it’s had an amazing impact on our team, we’ve tripled our numbers over the last year and coincidentally that’s when we started with D.R. Whitson.
Since starting the team conversation mastery course with DR my business has grown by leaps and bounds. We are hyper focused on recruiting talent and coaching them to reach their individual goals. (Zig Ziglar says “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.")
The accountability tools we have are the best in the industry.
The Leadership training is bar none the best I have ever been exposed to.
The team training is amazing. We have a Super Bowl caliber team unified to dominate.
This training has provided a mastermind with the top teams in our region. Similar to what Napoleon Hill talks about in his book "think and grow rich".
DR- You will forever leave a foot print in my life. You my friend are building a legacy. I appreciate you more than words can express. “Since starting the Team Conversation Mastery course with DR my business has grown by leaps and bounds.” Thank you for being great!
I just wanted to give TCM a major shout out. I was in vacation last week and Felecia stepped up and conducted our usual Monday morning meeting **AND** individually coached everyone on the team. After talking with the team they all said that she was amazing and felt extremely comfortable coaching with her. Felecia also said that had it not been for TCM she would not have had the confidence to accomplish this. You all ROCK!
We now have regular team meetings and group accountability meetings and our coaching has gotten much better. I have been able to retain top performers and negotiate favorable compensation packages because they’ve wanted to be on MY team. The desire to be on the team is something that can’t be measured.
D.R. Whitson has been my coach for over two years. He has been coaching me with hiring highly qualified persons for positions within our company. During this time our company has doubled.
He has shown me how to:
- Determine our needs for a particular position
- Locate personnel who fit the personality required to fill that position
- Use the effective interviewing tools
- Methods to keep and motivate individuals after hiring
- Keeping great talent when you find it
His method of delivery is fantastic. He has hands on experience hiring and building his own company that not only runs when he is not there, it runs and grows.
He is always patient and takes time to answer your questions (even though he has heard it many times before) with care and compassion.
I would highly recommend D.R. for training you, your staff and all of you together.
I’d like to take a quick moment to thank you sincerely for the coaching provided when you validated my AVA. (In addition, there are thanks sent to you from my team, husband, children and various animals that my children collected over the years and neglected to take with them when they moved out.)
I am sure you recall the shocked, haunted and wounded animal look I gave you at the completion of my validation. I must admit that “thank you” was not on my top 5 list of things to say at the time. Being told that I was not only living outside of myself but also not using my natural strengths had me feeling helpless and worthless. I didn’t know what to do next. Boy, am I glad you didn’t leave it there! In retrospect, I remember the encouragement about how building a team was the smartest thing I could have done and how the people I have in place thus far were wise choices. Unfortunately, at the time, what went into my ears sounded like the teacher on Charlie Brown (“whah whah whah…”). Then, there was the home work: Go someplace for a minimum of three days to find myself, get the physical and blood work done, read a book with my husband and monitor what I spend my time on. I tackled it with great vigor in an effort to validate the “boy were you wrong” email I intended to send.
As instructed, I went to Mazatlan for 4 days. I did not work. I buried my “I” and talked with no one. Due to insomnia the first 3 days, I had plenty of time to curse you in my head. (The email was going to be very impressive.) I kept asking myself why I was there because this seemed to be such a futile exercise. Day three arrived and I made the list of what I want to accomplish in this next season of my life. During the hours I was to “leave the list” I began to have my “aha” moments. I don’t have to quit what I am doing, just HOW I am doing it. I have made a successful team in spite of myself…what will happen when I am not forcing myself to behave and work in a manner that is physically and mentally exhausting. The production potential is staggering. What happened to the wife and mother I used to be? What happened to the contentment and joy? Suddenly I envisioned myself living inside my natural behavioral style…doing the things I WANT to do. I was so excited. I went back to the list and completed the homework of checking it against the head, heart and gut. Half of the list went away.
Upon my return home, I shared my adventure to find myself with my husband expecting him to think I’d lost my mind. His response: “Welcome back. I knew you’d make it. We’ve missed you.” He could even pinpoint the exact time that I wandered…and why. (He’s a very good husband.) In the few weeks since my return, my children and friends have already noticed the positive difference in me.
So, now I am heading into a new season with an old me that feels like a new friend. And I feel SO GRATEFUL for your role in this. If you hadn’t been honest with me in validating my AVA, if you hadn’t followed it with constructive and healing coaching or if you hadn’t genuinely cared about me through the process, my next season of life would merely be endured and contentment would still be evasive. So, once again, thank you, thank you, thank you. And may you be blessed tenfold the blessings you provide those of us fortunate to call you friend and coach.
