Feedback on your services

My name is Doug and I have been working with Jim Miller since my severance with my compnay back on March 17. I wanted to send a quick note to say how much I have appreciated Jim’s knowledge and support through this rather difficult/stressful time. Having never been through this type of event in my career, Jim’s encouraging and positive direction turned out to be exactly what I needed. I have just accepted an offer with another company and will start my new job on May 30. During the interview process for this new position I received multiple positive comments on the layout and content of my resume. I of course owe that to Jim’s coaching/suggestive input in helping me take my 5 page resume down to an acceptable 2 pages. Our weekly discussions and his advice on navigating interviews and questions around things like compensation were also right on point and proved to be extremely helpful. 
Again, just wanted to provide this input and let you know what a great job/service he provided. Much appreciated!!

Executive & Career Coaching

“You always seem to boil things down to something that is easy to remember and actionable.  You provide concise, clear practical advice that can be implemented immediately.  I like that you take the time to learn about my business so that you can condense our insights into easy-to-follow best practices and good professional habits.”

Managing Director-Investment Banking Major US Financial Advisory firm

“I have found a great deal of personal confidence by using you as an executive coach.  I knew the basic direction that I wanted to go and working with you has given me the confidence to go do it.  You bring objectivity and accountability to our conversations, both of which I find helpful.  And you are willing to call me on sales and management issues in ways that are great.  I look forward to getting even more out of our work together in the future.”

President, Logistics and Warehousing Business

‘‘You have the unique ability to diagnose problems quickly and accurately. You truly listen to understand and get to the core issues. You challenge where appropriate and always add value. You help me be a better thinker.’’

Divisional Vice President, Learning and Performance, Major US Luxury Goods Retailer

‘‘I have found you to be a great partner in dealing with the leadership and management issues that face a business such as mine. Seeing the business from a distance with the wisdom you bring was so valuable to me. Without it I would have failed to experience this new level of success. Our sessions have been valuable for my own effectiveness as an entrepreneur and leader. I look forward to maintaining our relationship as our grows.’’

 President, Home Healthcare Provider

“As an executive coach, you impress me with the ability to quickly grasp the issues that are of most importance to me and my business. Whether it is in your work with me individually or my management team, you know how to uncover and clarify issues that are vital to our success. And you follow up to make sure that we turn these insights into results!” 

CEO, Entertainment and Media Business

“The highest compliment that I can pay you is that every time we work together, I gain new insight that I can immediately apply to our business.”  

Vice President – Franchise Development, North American Franchisor

“You opened my eyes to being the best leader I can be.  Our work together resulted in more delegation to my key people, more support for them in areas where they are weak, and more focus on the goals and results we demand in our business.  There is no higher compliment I can pay than asking you to also work with our highest-potential leader.  Thanks again for your hard work and thought on our behalf.  We look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”

Chief Operations Officer, Civil Contracting Firm

DEI & Culture

“As a global technology organization with rapidly growing offices in the USA, we needed to develop a select group of new managers who had tremendous technical talent but were still developing their people skills. Within 90 days of contacting Milton and Misty, they were able to provide us with…

…access to materials and thought leadership to address our current and future training needs. The first round of our customized Management Development Program went so well that we added another 6 months of coaching for our participants. Through both, in person and online group sessions as well as individual coaching, we have seen tangible results showing a more confident and knowledgeable group of young leaders in our company.” 

Helena Malarkey, Director, Legal and Operations & Stephanie Kaiser, Director of Recruiting

“As a private-company in business for over 50 years, we had never designed a formalized program to develop our managers. Since we are now putting more people initiatives into place, we were seeking a program that would develop core skills in areas such as Leadership Styles, Management Skills, and Communication. After working with Milton and Misty on a well-designed  Management Development Program, we heard that…

…our new managers have already applied certain tools that they learned, such as scheduling one-on-one meetings with direct reports and will continue to draw from their experiences and lessons in their daily interactions. Additionally, our employees are now interested in utilizing what they learned to delegate some of their current responsibilities and increase their direct reports’ growth potential, while allowing themselves to focus more on the supervisory aspects of their roles. We have actually now expanded the program for one of our satellite offices and look forward to hearing the results from these employees.”

Corporate Controller

“As a funder of early stage technology startups, we identified the need to create a more culturally competent organization that would celebrate our diversity and understand what employees need to further the goal of working in a culturally competent environment. Building on the DEI work we were already doing, we asked AchieveNEXT to help us…

…develop a culture of inclusive learning by assessing employee sentiment and experience, and using that data to create a formal strategic plan and roadmap for short and long-term development of inclusive training and development opportunities. Now in the third year of our DEI initiatives, AchieveNext has helped us make substantial progress in creating a more inclusive organization.” 

Bill Kiesling, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania
