Rave Reviews

I am thrilled to have received this morning a new testimonial from a happy client. These are important to me because my goal is never to be an “expense,”but rather an investment for my clients. Everyone has different reasons to utilize my services and often seek to accomplish different objectives. What’s always the same is they seek rapid results. You will see from this client, Lindsey Carnett from Marketing Maven PR, that she realized both quantitative ans qualitative value. Thanks for your kind words, Lindsey!

P.S. After reading this consider that I can help you quickly accomplish your business and personal objectives. Call (360-271-1592) or email me (dan@danweedin.com) to find out how…

When I heard about Toro Consulting I wondered what Dan could offer to me that any other leadership consultant hadn’t already pitched to me. I was already a Vistage member, already a Women Presidents Organization member and had an outsourced business advisor, among other resources. Dan and I discussed using his services not so much for my own personal development but for the development of key staff members who would benefit me from having fewer “freak outs” and staff conflicts, especially when having that key staffer embark on a larger role within my organization.

I told Dan that if he could help this key employee have a greater sense of confidence, set boundaries with needy subordinates, establish appropriate communication protocol with peers who were influencing team morale, and not burden me with what I call “freak-outs” due to a sense of being overwhelmed, I’d give Dan the testimonial of a lifetime.

So here it is: As the CEO of a multi-million dollar, rapid-growth, nationally ranked marketing agency, I owe Dan a heap of gratitude for the headaches I haven’t had to experience over the last 6-months. I can thank Dan for retention of key employees, a key employee who now shares the same values and concerns as me, an improvement in team morale and an improved sense of confidence and drive, two traits vital to success within my organization.

Since I’m the rainmaker, I’ve been able to spend my time focusing on lucrative opportunities to grow my business as opposed to getting caught up in the minutia of interpersonal relationships among junior level and senior level staff.

I’d recommend Dan and Toro Consulting to any business owner looking to improve their own leadership skills or to have Dan help one or more of your key staff members to help you stay focused on your company goals without distraction. Dan is a pro at asking the right questions, presenting appropriate challenges and remaining steadfast in his accountability expectations for the best outcome possible. He used your goals as the thesis for his regular interactions so every interaction will lead to a positive outcome for the goals set forth at the beginning of the campaign. I set some very lofty goals and told Dan to make a believer out of me. He has accomplished in 4 months what I didn’t believe was possible in  a full year.

If you are on the fence, you should give him a try. What do you have to lose?  Stress, headaches, attitudes. Just be very transparent about your goals so he can use these as the guiding lights for his work within your organization.

Rave Reviews Redux

Many thanks to a happy coaching client…

In working with Dan Weedin, he gets my highest recommendation as an executive coach and mentor. Dan’s ability to recognize, understand, and explain complex business relationships has improved my thinking, and most importantly, my actions. Along the way there have been surprising (and sometimes painful) personal realizations, but Dan’s mentoring continues to make me a better person every day, professionally and personally. I came away from every coaching session with a clearer understanding of how people might respond to my actions and how I could improve my skills.

Dan did not hesitate to tactfully, but directly point out areas that needed to be considered a different way, and proved to be right with his observations, opinions, and suggestions. I would recommend Dan as a professional coach and mentor.

BREAKING NEWS – Unleashed to be published

I just wanted to share with all of my community some very good news. I received an offer and will agree to a new commercially published book for Unleashed. I begin writing now and it’s set to be released in early 2015. Captain Jack and I are thrilled!

To clarify, the current Unleashed is a self-published compilation of past blogs, newsletters, and columns. I’m very proud of that work, and it was mostly work that had already been available. Now, this will be all new work and in a book format, rather than a compilation. The topics, strategies, and concepts will be the same, just packaged differently. And yes, Captain Jack will have brand spanking new work, too. He will need to get busy!

Thanks to all of you for your support. Keep reading this book and get geared up for the next one!

New Testimonial for Coaching

I recently received a very nice testimonial from a new coaching client. Aaron Murphy is an exceptional consultant and architect for aging in place. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him the past month. Aaron was very kind to send out this unsolicited testimonial on the value he has received from working with me. Many thanks to you, Aaron!

“Two weeks into a 90 day personal business coaching session, with the wonderful Mr. Dan Weedin. Great conversations, clarification of intentions, and goal setting at each sit-down. He also has me working hard, and accountable to deliverables each and every week. We are sorting some important things out that will keep me at my “highest and best use / value” with my time. Professionally, and personally as well… GOOD STUFF!!! “Work Smarter, not harder…” Thanks Dan!”

Another Rave Review on Libby & Dan

I always like getting good news, and happy clients are always good news!

Mark Walters, a terrific value-based attorney who attended last week, had this to say about his experience….

Lawyers like me attend continuing legal education courses to stay on top of the law and legal trends.  I attend business training workshops to sharpen my  business skills and knowledge.  This helps me stay strong as a trusted adviser to my clients, and it helps me grow my business.  This was a fantastic workshop and everyone took away far more value than the cost of admission.  I won’t miss Dan and Libby’s next event.  

Thanks, Mark! The next Libby & Dan session is scheduled for June 21st in Seattle. Registration details are forthcoming. Stay tuned!
