What are People Saying?

Kurt recently provided a colleague and I leadership and communication training. As a retired high school principal, I feel this program is needed in high schools across our nation. Principals need this program to learn to effectively lead teachers and connect with parents. Teachers need this program to learn to successfully engage their students and guide them in positive directions. I highly recommend Kurt Porter and his leadership and communication training.

I recently underwent leadership training with Kurt. His career path allows him to fuse his amazing military-life learnings and experiences with his comprehensive military and civilian leadership education and training.  Kurt can skillfully incorporate those hard-earned lessons learned, leadership and team building principles directly into a corporate environment.  His teaching and coaching styles are engaging, informative and delivered in a manner that is extremely easy for varied levels of levels of leadership to relate to and absorb.  I strongly recommend Kurt and his company Performance and Leadership Coaching to gain an extra edge in leadership and operational excellence.

First, let me say thank you for the time you have taken to work with me here on my rig. I genuinely appreciate the conversations that we have been able to have around leadership, teamwork, and life. Your insight and viewpoint are much appreciated and has made a direct impact on bettering the team. 

Before the training, I was already very confident in my leadership abilities I am aware that I can always do better as a leader and there will always be room for improvement. After working with you, I feel that I am an even better, more focused, well-rounded leader. 

I really enjoyed the Developing the Leader Within You Workshop. I enjoyed the format that was presented using the videos, which was then immediately followed up by in-depth discussion on the sections. These discussions provided me the opportunity to delve deeper into different scenarios I could possibly encounter in the field, examined more closely ways I may currently have biases or blind spots, and how I may be able to improve my leadership. I appreciated how you challenged my current viewpoints with thought-provoking questions. 

I genuinely appreciate the sincerity with which you presented the training. You impressed me by how passionate you are about what you are sharing, and it was very evident how deeply you care about the success of my team. 

Thank you again for helping me be a better leader. It has truly been a pleasure to work with you.

As a business owner, I found the DISC Profile Assessment Report to be a great resource for better understanding of how one's natural and adaptive leadership styles impact the work we do. Kurt's presentation and debriefs on our reports were informative and engaging! I highly recommend using PLC's services for your leadership training and coaching needs. PLC's expertise with the DISC Program will add value to your life and your company's business.

Kurt was invaluable in my search to confirm that I am on the right path with my career. He offers a unique leadership assessment which in my case, showed areas of strength and areas in which I may improve. The debrief session was fun, enlightening, and encouraging. Kurt was able to put me at ease and helped me to know I was communicating with a caring professional. He asked powerful questions which really caused me to consider how I can improve my skills, questions I would not have thought to ask myself. If you are looking for someone to confide in and help you learn about your leadership potential, Kurt is the one to call!
