Testimonials - Strong People Systems


“It is great to have professional services that view life as a series of partnerships, not just opportunities.”
Board Chair – Credit Union

“Working with humans in any context can be challenging.  Working to bring together collaboration between organizations that are not bound together by a corporation – organizations who could walk away from the table at any time – is particularly challenging.  Brent is a master at navigating those waters!”

President & CEO – United Way

“I have been thinking a lot lately of the things I learned through your program that stayed with me.  I have been using some of what I learned lately and realized how much I have changed for the better since participating in LEAP.  What I learned from LEAP is invaluable, and I have had several opportunities to speak of it in the last month.  Realizing my purpose and keeping it the most important thing in my decisions has changed me in ways I didn’t anticipate, but definitely for the better.  Kevin and Brent were awesome, and I just wanted to say thanks again.”

Staff Accountant – Credit Union

“I worked through a rough spot with Kevin Stoffel using the Strong People Systems coaching methodology.  The exercise we went through seems to have had a profound affect on my outlook and I thank you.  The next day I was meeting with my marketing consultant, feeling pretty good and it hit me that I can do this!  I gained strength to persevere with an inspired outlook.”

CEO – Commercial Glass & Window Company

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the LEAP sessions our management team has taken. I must say that when we first started the course, I questioned the timing due to all of the major changes our credit union was going through but it turns out the timing was perfect and it was all time well spent. These sessions not only helped me grow as an individual but also helped with the cohesiveness of the management team. Thank you for all you do!”

Branch Manager – Credit Union

“I just wanted to let you know – I started the teller training program and it was amazing! I had zero anxiety about it leading up to the start and while I was doing it. No shaky voice, no tongue tie, no throwing up, no pounding heart. I would not have been able to do all that without you two! You guys are magical!!”

Compliance Officer – Credit Union

“We are hugely pleased with the success of last week’s event. You brought a thought provoking and extremely fun approach to Team Building.  Allowing participants to identify and better understand “CORE” strengths and how the combination of these talents impact our work and personal relationships.  Kevin also laid a strong foundation for the team to reflect on the “CORE” styles of others and how embracing this diversity will strengthen our culture by improving team dynamics and performance. The event brought a fresh energy to the team and has begin to spark conversation and networking within the team.”

Director of HR – Commercial Printer

“Gentlemen, it was a pleasure to work with you both over the past 12 weeks. I truly enjoyed the conversations from the beginning, all the way through our final session last week. Strong People Systems, (Brent and Kevin) connected with me on an emotional, spiritual and intellectual level. My energy path has far less hurdles to maneuver around which allows me to reach my highest level of success. Their immediate availability and responsiveness to my needs went beyond our initial agreement. I consider both Brent and Kevin true leadership development professionals and would recommend them to anyone needing support or guidance at any level. Thank You,”

Business Development Manager – General Contractor

Since the beginning of our collaboration, I knew I was off to a great start with Brent as my Coach. I was extremely impressed with how intuitive and organized Brent was in his approach when coaching me. I was also impressed with how much he pays attention to details. After my coaching sessions are over I reflect on Brent’s process and techniques he uses to get me to expand on issues we are discussing. I realize because of that, I find myself coming up with and identifying ideas I otherwise would not have found!

Brent has a strong foundation in coaching and years of experience so that he makes it look effortless to coach. When I tried it myself through a class exercise, I was even more impressed and felt so fortunate for the time I got to spend with him. He knows his stuff!

Thank you Brent for the time you invest with me and making me feel like I am the only client you have! It is a true gift to make someone feel that important, and you have it!

Federal Emergency Management Agency – Mitigation Division Management Analyst

“Strong People Systems facilitated a half day “CORE Team-building” session for our corporate staff of 19 individuals.  People came to the meeting interested and curious and left the session energized.  Kevin did a good job facilitating the group, ensuring participation and engagement across the team, and managing the flow of the session.   Our team gave Kevin a 4.5 rating out of a possible 5 when evaluating the effectiveness of the session.”

CEO – Commercial Printer

“I wanted to thank you again for taking the time to meet with me yesterday.  I can honestly tell you I feel so much better and really feel more at peace with what is going on around me.   It is hard to describe, but just know what you did for me yesterday, may have saved my life!  I really felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders but now I feel like I am carrying less baggage. Thanks again for caring about me and my feelings.  I really appreciate it.”
