“Gary—ALL of your stuff is the ”best.”  You have a knack for simple, digestible, and valuable tidbits.  Your presentations are gold.  You even inspired me a few weeks back with your post about getting up early.  I still hate it, but I’m doing it. “
– Pete Travis, Director, The Howard Group, Inc.

Regarding “The Recruiter’s Roundtable” program Patti Said:
“Gary, I just wanted to send you a quick thank you note for your response to our question in the discussion forum. We implemented your advice and closed that deal the next day making a commission of $29k for that placement alone. Joining the Roundtable has been the best decision. Your tips have helped us in the first quarter so much that I have asked myself over and over again what took so long to join…best decision ever!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”
– Patti Avornyoh, Managing Director, Pierce Locke & Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Yakub rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Rick rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“This might be the best seminar I’ve ever taken in any field. I founded my one man shop about 10 years ago and learned my trade on the job, by asking questions, and seeking my own education. I never had a “manager” in recruiting. I loved the metrics and the “mental conditioning” piece of this presentation. It really confirmed some things I thought might be right, but I didn’t have an authority to confirm. I’m a fitness professional by background and I thought the mental approach to recruiting, as Gary presents it, is similar to approaching a physical fitness program. Gary, let us know when you are doing some live presentations around the country. I would take an online seminar like this 2-4 times a year. Even if its a review of the basics. As a one man shop, I have “higher” highs, and “lower” lows than other businesses. This helps to keep us engaged, and reminds us what we are doing right and wrong. No matter how smart you think you are, you can veer off track as a one man shop very quickly- this seminar will get you back on track.”

– Rick Reading, Principal, Richard Anthony Group, Inc.

“I have attended a number of recruiting seminars throughout the years and I can say with confidence that Gary’s ‘15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters’ was the most useful recruiting advice I have ever received. Gary’s concepts are concise, insightful and delivered in a way that makes them easy to apply to your own desk. I have also been sharing some of Gary’s habits with my team and I have already seen better time management, more planning and stronger initial client/recruiter relationships throughout the office. What I most appreciated about the tele-seminar was Gary’s focus on being authentic. Being “Authentic” rang true as the big difference-making habit that was really unique to Gary’s approach. For me this was a refreshing reminder to do this job with integrity and all the results will follow.”
Joshua Furtado, CEO/Co-Founder, Towerhill Associates

“Gary, you are truly amazing. Your ‘Done by Noon’ concept is awesome and inspiring. Keep up the great work and thanks for your inspiration!”
– Craig Hibbard, CEO, Zimmerman & Associates

“Gary’s the real deal. He walks his talk. I’ve worked with him since 2002 and have greatly admired how he’s been able to run a successful consulting business AND create the lifestyle of his dreams. You will learn a TON from him”!
– Eric Ryan, Principal, Manage for Good

Regarding the, “Get Job Orders Now!” seminar, Robbie rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“I loved all of it, but the Strategic Alliance section was mind blowing! How many years of opportunity have been lost by my not doing this? But “tomorrow is another day”!  I can’t think of any improvements you could make to the seminar. Getting the study guide in advance, the MP3 afterward, plus the filled-in quick start guide, and then the transcript…gee, the only thing missing is the bubble bath, champagne, and peeled grapes!

Honestly, Gary’s seminars are so user friendly for both the present moment and to study and refer to afterward, I can’t think of anything to improve. This is over and above what anyone else is doing.”
– Robbie Sewell, President, Saddlebrook Associates, Inc.

Regarding the, “Get Job Orders Now!” seminar, Sandy said:
“Hello Gary, I wanted to provide you with some feedback regarding a strategy you had given during one of your seminars late last year.  It was to get job orders via referrals and to pay those referring individuals a share of the fee.  I used this idea and it was a tremendous success for me.  Here’s how I utilized it:

I took a candidate I just placed out to lunch and shared details of our “Partnership Program”.  It’s a referral fee (based on the percent you recommended) for a period of 1 year on all placements made in the organizations he helps us establish a relationship with.  To my surprise, he was excited about the opportunity.  As a result, he made a strong introduction for me with a Fortune 200 company and we made a placement in literally 2 weeks from the date of our lunch appointment.  I earned $19K (fee is at 25%).  We obtained 2 more job orders and have candidates in finals with the company.

I want to personally thank you for the idea.  Your program/website/company is a tremendous resource for recruiting business owners.  I’m proud to be a member of your Roundtable program and am indebted to you!”
– Sandy Jacob, Partner, Top Talent

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Toni said:
“I was impressed with the amount of useful information you shared and the well organized format. What you presented will be put to good use right away. Some systems you covered were already in place but needed revamping and this class is the perfect spring board for me to use to present revisions to the other recruiters in my office. Thanks again! I wish you the best in all you do!”
– Toni Colvin, Executive Recruiter, Colvin Resources Group

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Ardith rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“The seminar was so much more than just 15 habits; there were scripts, checklists, and self motivation techniques. And, you returning to the idea of “simplicity” and “authenticity” throughout helped to keep it all in perspective. I like the fact that you always provide us with materials in such a way that we must remain engaged in the discussion- it keeps our attention from wandering. You hit my biggest take-away in the first 15 minutes and my sense of urgency and attention was elevated! It changed the way I work -in- and -on- my business.”
– Ardith Rademacher, Managing Partner, Ardith Rademacher & Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Timothy rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“This seminar just became a non-negotiable training for all our new hires. I have been in the business for 20 years and was seeking a training program for new recruiters. This is a very comprehensive approach to helping those new or old in the recruiting field to be successful. These foundational techniques will be extremely useful for our company.”
– Timothy Terry, President, Terry & Associates, Inc.

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Dina rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“Gary actually taught us how to replicate his successes. I have attended so many webinars and read so many newsletters/books and all the trainers usually do is talk about how fabulous they are and how you should buy all their other stuff. I’m tired of that. I don’t want to hear about how fabulous you are — I want you to show me how fabulous I can be. 🙂 I wanted meat & potatoes and Gary delivered that! And in a language I understood…very no nonsense. I also liked the fact that there were handouts that made it interactive- it forced me to stay away from my e-mail and stay focused.”
– Dina Colombo, Lead Recruiter, The CPI Group

– Sandi Boruff, Executive Recruiter, Mallard Search

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Kelsey rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“The 15 Habits were very information packed, yet simple and achievable- this makes the training even more powerful. I appreciated the use of real data, Gary’s life stories, and other recruiters’ stories to reinforce the importance of the habits. Thanks so much for sharing so many websites to utilize in building these habits as well. Overall, the experience was excellent and I feel it will drive better results in my own performance.”
– Kelsey Lawhead, Search Consultant, TDM & Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Jeremy rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
Being in the business for 7 years now, sessions like this are a valuable for getting your processes and systems back on track- I will be utilizing “the search process checklist”. Also, you speak with empathy and relate to billers that might be struggling in a “been there” demeanor, which gives them more motivation to put these habits and processes in place. Additionally, having gone to other trainers’ seminars and hearing dozens of other recruiting training audios, I can say that you cut out the fat and provide more actual insight -and a course of action- than the others do, which is why we are repeat customers.”
– Jeremy Peterman, Vice President, JR Peterman Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Lee rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:

“Your depth of knowledge was refreshing. Even though I have nearly 18 years of recruiting industry experience, I felt that this was VERY informative. I liked that it was VERY specific to the recruiting industry. You left me wanting more information. Many of the seminars we go to address sales and marketing in generalities. Yours was SO informative, down to a complete script of what-to-say-and-when-to-say-it!”
– Cindy Biter, Managing Partner, Southwest Professional Recruiting

“As a veteran of the recruiting business for 20+ years, which includes training recruiters for a National franchisor, I have always looked for ways to gain a competitive advantage. I will certainly work some of these ideas and methods into my marketing program. Many 1 hour training sessions are variations of “Recruiting 101” or sometimes 201. This was “Recruiting 401” or 501. Gary, thank you and please keep offering advanced training sessions.”
– Alan Eras, Principal, AJE Search Associates LLC

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Brad said:
“Being a recruiter for 15 years, you were exactly right when you said that seasoned recruiters often start to cut corners and don’t have the necessary checklists and forms in place to cover the search process thoroughly.

“Hello Gary, I really enjoyed your ‘15 critical habits’ seminar. I have listened to it twice and I am currently underlining the transcript with a red pen to review and implement. There is so much detail that you covered that answered a number of questions that are key to me taking a step up in my production, so thank you very much. I was trained in a short period in a previous company here in the UK. But there were so many inconsistencies in the level of training, their interpretation of what was important, and what they chose to ignore. I have used other trainers in the past and I must compliment you on ‘The 15 critical habits’ class as it was the most informative and most relevant that I’ve ever heard – a job well done Gary so congratulations to you. Kind regards from the UK.”
– Steve Hunt, Director, Fenton Global

“Thank you, Thank you, Thank youuuuuuu! This is just the shot in the arm that I needed to get back on track. I indeed learned something in each and every habit category, and was diligently writing notes the whole time. I look forward to learning more from you. The story analogies were great, and your delivery was excellent. I loved it! I am grateful and appreciative to have met your acquaintance, and I look forward to more contact in the future!”
– Kim Bessette, Talent Acquisition Specialist, The Emac Group

“Stellar job Gary! The ’15 Habits’ seminar is a bottled recipe for success! It allowed us to learn new ideas that we can IMMEDIATELY incorporate into our daily and weekly routines to achieve better results. I bought the 15 Habits CD a few years ago but the 3-day tele-seminar is much, much better due to the level of details and coaching tips you provided that weren’t in the original 15 Habits. Great work!!!”
– Rodney Apple, President, SCM Talent Group, LLC

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar Courtney said:
“The seminar left me feeling inspired. Many of the habits that Gary focused on were values based. Beyond tactics and scripts, he focused on raising expectations and standards. Our historic industry model is very transaction oriented which breeds low standards and behaviors. It was refreshing hear someone suggest an elevation of the industry model.”

Courtney Homer, CEO, Career Encore

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar Leonard said:
“I liked the conversational format of the seminar. I felt like Gary and I were talking over a couple of cups of coffee about the universal traits of very successful recruiters he had observed. Gary has just the right balance of polish and personality.

– Leonard Baker, Senior Technical Recruiter, Go Pro

“Gary’s approach is very relatable. The ’15 Habits’ seminar was extremely well-organized, thought-out, and the focus never got off topic. Gary was very well-prepared, which shows he really cares about his work and reputation and respects others. Additionally, I think what was particularly helpful was all the relatable examples Gary provided with each scenario (i.e. sports analogies, etc.). Love the handouts too.”
– Jennifer Adams, President, Adante Staffing

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Helen rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:

– Helen Faber, Managing Director, Core Net Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Tony rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“Gary did an excellent job of relating the material in real terms. In recruiting it’s important that we communicate on a genuine level and not sound scripted. I feel Gary gets it when it comes to this principle. I tend to run around like the proverbial chicken so the best part for me was the tangible examples Gary provided to help us remove all of the chaos and to create organization through planning and structure.”
– Tony Lucarell, Firm Owner, OSI Staffing Services

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Rich rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“I got something out of every segment that will increase my billings. But the focus on automation really helped crystallize my need to take unnecessary tasks off my desk and hand them over to somebody else. I have always tried to do everything myself. I realized I need to find somebody to handle the chores that keep me off the phone! And that will reduce my stress level and increase my production exponentially.”
– Rich Eidman, President, Seymour & Associates Inc.

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Will rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“Gary did a great job of breaking down very complex systems all recruiters should have place in a very fundamental and simple format. The time management and best practices around scheduling a recruiter’s day to enhance performance were very well put together. I manage a team of 4 full time recruiters and 2 full time Account Managers and I will for sure be implementing these systems into my teams’ desks.”
– Will Hayes, Branch Manager, Internal Data Resources

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Lisa rated it a 10 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“It’s hard for me to say what I liked best as I really liked the whole thing. I think the best thing is that you opened my eyes to the fact that I don’t have to work as if my hair is on fire. You have a holistic approach which I appreciate. I really enjoy helping people and your idea of “getting to the truth” is great. I like how you emphasize “single-tasking.” Every boss I ever had required me to run around like a lunatic. Now that I work for myself, I want to be both productive and sane.”
– Lisa Chubinsky, Principal, Staff Providers LLC

– Mike Kaczmar, Firm Owner, Kaczmar & Associates

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar Jeannine said:

– Jeannine O’Connor, Principal, Bio Fusion Staffing

Regarding the, “15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” seminar, Karen rated it a 9 (out of 10) on an online survey and said:
“It’s clear that Gary has walked the walk– he’s completely in touch with the obstacles and challenges that recruiter’s face on a daily basis. He provides solid tools that can be implemented easily.

I like the concepts he presented for helping you keep your head screwed on and not getting overwhelmed.”

– Connie Dorigan, President, Dorigan & Associates

“Your ‘15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters’ seminar was really exceptional. I have listened to a lot of your presentations and as usual, you don’t BS. I think trainers are often focused on big billers, which is fine, but I generally find it a bit intimidating and depressing because I am not there yet. Here you give a roadmap for how to get there that is both detailed and comprehensible. This may be the best training I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard many). Your insistence on honesty, structure and good habit formation resonates with me. You are passionate but not effusive. I want to thank you for such a wonderful and inspirational Christmas present Gary!”
– Michael Sullivan, Firm Owner, Advancement Alternatives

“Gary, by your definition I am a top level producer/ big biller. I worked for other firms for 25 years and have been a solo recruiter for 7 years. About a year ago I attended a recruiting summit and was struck by your presentation. Since then I have attended several of your webinars. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU GARY!!! I have literally doubled my revenue this year from implementing the things you teach in your webinars. For example the first was the “Researcher” seminar. I really can’t say enough good things about the work that you do. Every time I attend a seminar it gets my adrenaline pumping, recharges my enthusiasm, inspiration and passion for what I do. And you always give me areas to improve, refreshers on what works and exciting new ideas. I am sold and will be joining your roundtable.”
– Pam Barker, President, RELIA Solutions

“Gary, Thank you…thank you…thank you! After a few years of asking everyone, you’re the only person to ever provide clear data on an individual recruiter’s performance standards. I really appreciate it and YES you definitely answered my questions! I thoroughly enjoyed the ’15 Habits’ seminar and the level of detail you provided over the last 3 days and as a result, I intend to immediately implement your recommended processes. Hopefully, I’ll have the opportunity to participate in another Recruiting Lab seminar in the near future. Thanks again!”
– Wayne Rigney, Managing Partner, Talent Mindset Resources LLC

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been in recruiting for 15 years and had my own firm for 4 years. I have seen and heard many trainers and you are by far the absolute best in this industry (content and presentation style). You are the business coach I have been looking for!”
– Saundra Lee, Firm Owner, Dubin & Lee

“Gary, “The 15 Habits of Highly Effective Recruiters” was an excellent presentation. The best I have ever heard. I was able to hear most of the presentation live and I have to say things clicked especially in regards to the marketing and daily schedule sections. I wish I had heard this seminar (or something similar) last year. It would have made the difference in how the year has gone.”
– Robert Barnier, Director of Operations & Marketing, Franklin Joseph & Associates

“Gary, after I got off of the, “15 Habits” seminar on Tues, I took your advice and sent one of my managers an email telling him I needed more timely feedback. He sent me an email back THANKING me for sending him an “in your face email”. His response and attitude towards me has completely shifted by taking that risk, pushing back on him, and reminding him that my time is valuable. He responded immediately, thanking me for helping him keep his priorities straight. Just wanted to give you that testimonial of taking something from the webinar and putting it into practice with immediate results. I immediately got 3 phone interviews for those candidates!”
– Lori Stephens, Executive Search Consultant, Bishop Executive Services

“I just completed the “15 habits” seminar. I have been in the recruiting business in since 1993. I have had my own firm since 2000 and I have billed between the mid six and seven figures since then. I really enjoyed your seminar and it sparked some real thought in how I run my desk and how to build my firm. I think that your common sense approach to the business is how I have approached it my entire career. I found that you offered many great ideas that I will take away, and utilize in my business daily. Thank you.”
– John Manzella, Managing Director, Providence Search Group, LLC

– John Cronin, Senior Recruiter

– Donna Fedor, Recruiting Firm Owner

“By working with Gary, I’ve impacted all facets of my business. My call volume increased by 1,800 calls out over the prior year and with that came an additional 500 connects. More importantly, is the financial and personal success. Gary has been an instrumental part of helping me to form my client development plan, business vision and personal goals. During this coaching process, the difference has truly been Gary the person. He has the ability to cut to the core of your business, coach with motivation and make you laugh. My heartfelt thanks to Gary!”
– Tricia Scalzo, Recruiting Firm Owner

“My billings jumped to 550K in the last 12 months! I participated in your programs and they were all pertinent. Your systems approach to doing the business is unique from everything I have seen. I found your coaching sessions on managing and compensating staff very helpful. I also appreciated your approach to work/life balance and the fact that you don’t let money and success in the business ‘own’ you.”
– Robert Ambs, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Thank you for an outstanding presentation (“Get Job Orders Now!”). I have been in the search business for 25 years and really like your inspiring ideas. My son Toby has joined me and we will be incorporating these excellent ideas.”
– Dick Williams, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Hi Gary! Your information on the Researcher class I just took was specific and was full of ‘content’. I appreciated your hand-outs immensely! I hired two part-time Research Assistants a few months back, and I wish I had your training prior to hiring these two!! Also, you come across like a natural as a teacher. When you stayed on to answer the questions at the end, that proved to me that you truly wanted to meet each individual’s needs, even if it took a little longer. Thank you!!”
– Lea Timmons, CAC, CSP

“I had been researching recruiter-specific training for several months. After seeing Gary’s proactive contributions to several forums and doing my own research with top billers, I decided to join Gary’s Recruiter’s Roundtable and to hire him for a one to one session. Gary is a fantastic communicator and has the ability to quickly analyze your current situation, develop a strategic plan to get you to your goal and help deploy the actions to get you to the next step. I can’t recommend him strongly enough and will be using him as a business guide, mentor and sounding board to develop my production and grow my business. After a one hour session, my planning became a great deal clearer and I generated 7 “A” grade job orders and arranged 4 interviews!!!”
– Darren Pedley, Recruiting Firm Owner

“The half hour session I had with Gary was the most transformative coaching session I’ve ever have had by far. Gary’s ability to reflect, focus, distill and present advice in a few words led to a major shift that helped pull me out of the worst slump of my 30 plus year recruiting career. I also thought his laser recruiting was very enlightening and zen-like. As my meditation teacher pointed out, ‘Awakening occurs in the space where conduct, compassion and realization coalesce’- and in the recruiting space, Gary embodies that vision.”
– Mike Sullivan, Search Firm Owner

“Gary has an amazing store of personal knowledge and experience, and yet delivers it without ever leaving you feeling inferior. He identifies issues quickly and helps you discover practical, repeatable ways to excel. I highly recommend Gary to any recruiter or business owner who wants significantly improved results without having to give up their personal life.”
– Larry F. Austin, Search Firm Owner

“Since 2005 I have attended online training sessions that Gary has held. His approach to recruiting centers on value creation. This includes the value that the recruiter can bring to the clients and candidates with whom they speak. Equally important is the value that the ‘recruiting lifestyle’ can bring to the quality of life of the recruiter. His information ranges from nuts and bolts recruiting practices to strategic planning for the owner of the firm. I find it all insightful and applicable. I recommend his training sessions highly”
– Dan Simmons, Recruiting Industry Trainer/ Firm Owner

“Gary is an excellent mentor and business coach. He has a very genuine care about this field and an approach that constantly keeps you thinking about the next stage in your business. I recommend that anyone looking for excellent coaching from someone who cares to work with Gary.”
– Michael Peterson, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Gary Stauble is a highly respected GURU to the executive search industry. His monthly seminars are informative and very helpful to new and very experienced recruiters. The topics he chooses for both his seminars and his recruiter roundtables are well researched and insightful. Gary’s guest speakers are always at the top of their game and very inspirational. I highly recommend other search professionals to join our great group at The Recruiting Lab.”
– Rena Moosa, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Gary helped me help myself by working with me to identify the weakness in my system and giving me the tools to correct and maintain a more efficient office environment. Our billing has been higher than ever since Gary introduced his “system” methods to me. We continue to work with Gary and participate in the Recruiting Lab.”
– Tom Cleary, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Gary is a very gifted person from all that I seen over the past years of watching his practice grow. He has taken initiatives that most will not venture into as well as brings an intelligence that has developed into giving what he knows back to people like myself. Thank you Gary and keep it up for a long time to come.”
– Hart Davidow, Executive Coach/ Trainer

“As owner/manager of Spider IT I have, for over a year now, been receiving Gary’s newsletters which I’ve found to be informative and very relevant. I subscribed to one of Gary’s teleconference meetings– it was inspirational! I regularly re-listen to the CD of that meeting for motivation. I would thoroughly recommend Gary Stauble to anyone who is running a recruitment business.”
– Adam Sztuka, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Before working with Gary I had worked, with some degree of success, with a generic business coach. I found that having a coach / mentor like Gary, who is an expert in the recruiting industry, to be exponentially more productive. The resources he shares alone are almost worth the investment, especially for a small operator. Despite the sluggish economy, a severe personal injury, and the death of a parent, I still produced the highest revenue of my 18 year career through the training and encouragement of Gary’s coaching program.”
– Elizabeth Creger, Recruiting Business Owner

“I found exactly what I was looking for when I started using Gary’s services. During the past 3 years, since I started my business, I had often wished that I had someone with whom I could ask questions or test ideas; someone whose experience would speed up my learning curve. Gary has been just that, and more. I would encourage anyone that is considering whether a professional coach is worthwhile to take advantage of Gary’s complimentary session. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or just starting out, you will take some kernel away from each conversation that will improve your business performance.”
– Alan Carty, Search Firm Owner

“I must rate Gary a 9 out of 10 from my experience. The fact that I have been exposed to new ideas, processes and views in the recruiting world. For me it has been a positive experience to honestly evaluate my skills and approach to my business. Have evaluated my process and made adjustments, the results I am sure will be positive as I implement changes and hold myself more accountable.”
– Lenny Wachowiak, Search Firm Owner

“I wanted to send you a note to thank you for all of your help over the last year and a half. Your service has been a real value to me and I look forward to a long standing relationship with you and your company. It is extremely comforting knowing that I have someone as knowledgeable as you in my corner. Now, with The Coaching Gym, I can contact you with my current issues each week and receive a prompt response. Although I’ve put in a tremendous amount of work along the way, having you “on my team” enables me to not worry about the many issues that arise in this business. Additionally, I’ve really appreciated your professionalism and the way you strive for a work/life balance in this business”.
– Adam Slone, Recruiting Firm Owner

“I received great training, support, and reinforcement while working with Gary. The program opened my mind to other approaches to this business and helped me make some much needed shifts. I really enjoyed sharing ideas and having someone to be accountable to and this put me back on track. I absolutely got my money’s worth from the coaching process. Lots of new ideas, training, approaches, focus, getting a grip. Can you put a price on that”?
– Maureen Boehm, Recruiting Firm Owner

“Working with Gary clarified for me what I needed to be focused on as a business owner. His techniques and tips really were right-on-target and saved me time trying to re-invent my own methods. Most of all, Gary’s advice was invaluable as his background in recruiting qualifies him truly as the recruiter’s coach. He knows the market, the process and the pitfalls so he could quickly pointyou in the right direction. I highly recommend Gary to any recruiter wanting to increase their productivity and satisfaction.”
– Cindy Houston Hazen, Recruiting Business Owner

“I benefited from the training and accountability and probably a bit of moral support from someone who understands the priorities and pressures involved in owning a small recruiting business. I was stirred to maintain and improve my sales figures. Also, the “invisible” support that comes from receiving a “yes, it’s OK to do this” or “why not try that?” was very helpful”.
– Peter Judd, Recruiting Business Owner

“Gary brings together recruiters who are interested in solving their business challenges, and provides the group specific industry knowledge in a format which inspires valuable exchange on real business issues. Thanks again!”
– Julie Hodson, Search Firm Owner

– Melinda Pittman Streit, Search Firm Owner

I really appreciate your approach to coaching and helping me to stay accountable to the goals that I set. You have also been a tremendous resource to helping me to get my business to the next level.

– John Radebaugh, Search Firm Owner

“Gary had a comprehensive understanding of the context of our needs including the intangibles. I enjoyed the discussion of “wheat” only, and not “chaff”. I’d rate Gary a 9 out of 10 (I believe 10′s are practically unachievable): Quick results, constant communication, good feedback, and candid assessments”.
– Richard Jones, Executive Director

“Strong analytical skills, tenacity, a great sense of humor, ability to make things happen and a down to earth quality, enable Gary to be a wonderful teacher. His exceptional creativity and intuition gives him an excellent sense about people. He is be able to inspire and assist any person in determining a direction and then obtaining their goal”.
