Last fall we had a significant project fail. I realized through the workshop that I didn’t give my team the four T’s (Tell, Tools, Train and Time) We are making a second run at the project with the four T’s in place and it is going much better. I can say with certainty that I’m applying what I learned and seeing a real difference.
Michael Harger - Assistant Vice President
I just came across a High Performance Leadership picture. Wow. What a great program. And look at the longevity and success of all of the attendees. I have such fond memories of all of the challenging activities we completed together -- but even more importantly the friendships and major bridges that we built with one another across so many departments and divisions!
Lynda Goplerud - Vice President - Client Program Manager
I have always struggled applying the information that I have learned at training courses. It seems that once you get back into your environment things return to the normal and nothing really changes. This time I was able to think through some of the things that I have struggled with before and I KNOW I will utilize what I learned. You’ve really made a difference in my life.
LeRoy Zimmerman - Operations Manager

Mark Miller - Director of Corporate Services
I have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism as well as outright excitement that both Melynda and Tammy bring to their work.

Julie Huisman - Director, Human Resource
I have known Tammy for over ten years and she has been an invaluable resource to my small business and to me professionally. Initially, I was a participant in a management development program that she developed. It was an exceptional experience that helped me develop as a leader/manager. Most recently, Tammy has helped my firm reposition ourselves to deal with the challenges facing the financial industry. I would highly recommend Tammy and The Meyvn Group.
