Michele Lando has been our go-to resource when we have needed coaching and facilitation assistance . . . A 20 year veteran who is highly competent technically but was not promotable due to his ‘rough around the edges’ inner-personal skills . . . Michele was able to bring awareness and behavioral change to bear, over a 6 month period, such that we were able to offer the promotion this person had been requesting and retain a valuable employee . . .
Skilset has met or exceeded my expectations in all areas. I am most impressed by their comprehensive commitment to our account…They provided significant contributions in a variety of disciplines – beyond the expected advertising and PR – including sales promotions, product enhancements, building customer relationships and community outreach events. I attribute much of our great success last year to their efforts.
As a professional in Wealth Management for over 20 years responsible for enhancing the sales team’s performance, I have engaged numerous sales training and processes. This program is in a league of its own. Salespeople are transformed, and have tools to further refine [their skills] moving forward. One of my team members went from 2M to 20M in just 30 days, and the entire team has seen returns in the millions.
Thank you for your engaging and valuable presentation; thank you for your professional and friendly attitude; thank you for kicking off the day with a successful bang; and thank you for embracing our students and alums with kindness and warmth. Your presentation was so meaningful, the President Tex Boggs and I were still discussing our "definable moments" on Monday! It was a pleasure meeting with you and working with you. I hope I have the pleasure again next year.
Michele Lando, President of Skilset Communications was voted #1 among the administrative staff that participated in all 10 of the forums that were intended to motivate, encourage and prepare staff for promotional opportunities. Michele was able to communicate the importance of being in control of one’s own path and that by branding, one can focus his/her energies in developing habits and tools that can manifest in a positive, effortless and direct form of success.
Michele creates results. Over the 13 years she has coached and consulted within our organization, we have seen results in leadership, communication, strategy and sales. She has helped me explore new perspectives and guided me to connect the dots about things I wasn’t necessarily thinking about before. She uses pragmatic and easy-to-implement tools, promotes self-awareness and instills ownership. As a result she helps you make new choices, create new habits, and model the leadership you want for, and from, your team. Michele actively helps create and implement the path to one’s future – today. As an added bonus, I found that what I’ve learned, adapted and adopted in working with Michele is equally valuable with my family, as well as my professional relationships.
Michele Lando's presentation was the finest I have seen in a long time. She is engaging, easily connects with her audience and communicates clearly and effectively. She is a wonderful presenter and you will leave with useful and practical ideas for your business. If you are going to hear her speak you are in for a treat.
Michele is genuine and passionate. Her innovative perspective and creative approach make for a dynamic experience. Michele spoke for us on a number of occasions, from a 4 hour workshop to a 1 hour keynote, Michele brings her vibrant personal style to whatever she does. Her content is always relevant and she will customize to your needs to educate, inform and engage with your audiences.
Michele's ability to navigate between leadership and support teams, combined with her deep understanding of our company, made her an invaluable team member/partner in re-building our brand infrastructure. She and her team helped us transition to a new distribution model with internal communications guidance and with customized sales training programs over a period of two years. I would gladly partner with Michele again and confidently recommend her brand strategy, marketing and sales/speaking services to anyone wanting a true partnership to move the dial for their company!
You add value in ways you may not even realize.
…I have thought about how much I have learned from you and how much value you have brought me over the years. You provided much thoughtful advice and challenged me to think about some things I would never have considered.
In six sessions, Michele helped me to close an $11M deal. One might think that was the highlight of my experience with her. In reality, she did more! She helped me ‘get my head on right.’ I fully recommend anyone who has the chance to be coached by Michele take full advantage of the opportunity!
