Wow! What a terrific presentation! By cutting right to the heart to what it
means to be mutually accountable and how that impacts performance,
relationships, and teamwork, you’ve provided a blueprint that businesses and families can use to build a strong
foundation of trust and synergy. Any
organization that is not operating at peak efficiency would greatly benefit
from your words of wisdom.

Year-in and year-out, Dr
Tom continues to be a highly valued speaker at our convention. He has a wealth of practical knowledge, and
just as importantly, is able to communicate it in an understandable and
down-to-earth manner that our audiences relate to very well. Whether speaking about building
accountability in the workplace, getting the best out of people, or saving the
family business, we know he’ll be doing so with the kind of passion, humor, and
energy that draws people in and keeps them wanting more.
Bill Weaver National Convention Director Automotive Recycling Operations
Dr. Tom Rogers developed a structured
interview system to help select salespeople for our chain of automotive parts
warehouses headquartered in Detroit—H&H
Wheel Service, Inc. The impact of his
program is that the quality of salespeople our warehouse managers subsequently
hired is substantially better than before.
Dr. Tom’s system is easy to use and understand as well as effective.
Dr. Tom conducted training sessions with
our warehouse managers in order to introduce the selection program. He was well-organized, energetic, and
informative. He also effectively
utilized role plays to help our managers understand the interview system and
the likely situations they’d encounter during the hiring process.
We were particularly impressed with Dr.
Tom’s follow-thru. When the training
sessions were concluded, he stayed in contact with our managers, answering
their questions as he coached them on following the hiring process. It was this final step that cemented in our
managers’ minds exactly what they needed to do to successfully work the
I highly recommend Dr. Tom
as a Coach, Consultant, or Trainer. He knows what it takes to make a payroll and build a strong business in a highly competitive environment. And with
his “in the trenches” approach, he works well with people at all different levels of

I want to thank you for the Coaching that you provided me recently. As you recall, we met at your business
seminar last Fall, and I was impressed with your work at that time.
Your guidance through the Values Scan, Family Strategic Plan, and
Mission Statement ere clearly delineated.
You provided the right balance of theory and practice that made it
possible for me to complete my work in a timely manner. As a result, I’ve successfully presented the
Family Strategic Plan and Mission Statement to my family. Your encouragement to complete this project
is very much appreciated.

Survey and Assessment you completed for Mutual Savings Bank, f.s.b. (“MSB”).

The completed Organizational Assessment for
MSB was thoroughly documented and well written. We found both the process and
the completed product to be well worth our investment.
Thank you again. We would not hesitate to
recommend you and your company to others.
