"Rebecca has been contracted twice by the Flowline Division
Ezeflow USA, Inc. to assist the organization in developing the
leadership potential in our first-line supervision and our executive
management team. As each segment of our organization has completed
training with Rebecca, there has been measurable improvement in their
leadership styles and support of our organizational goals. They
function more as a team, with improved respect and communication. They
are also more interactive with and supportive of their subordinates.
Rebecca has a very outgoing and interactive style, which captures
people's attention and keeps them engaged in the training. Although the
training exercises may strike the casual observe as odd, they drive
home the practical application, which gets taken back to the actual work
environment. Rebecca has gone the extra mile for our organization by
documenting her observations of each team member and providing
feedback. This assists us in our continued development of each person.
Her training has been invaluable and we welcome her back as we continue
to grow as an organization and develop as a management team."

dedication to training!" NVR BUILDING PRODUCTS, INC. www.nvrinc.com
