Client Testimonials

testimonial-photo-3We originally engaged the Elkind Group to bring the Birkman Method® to our mid-year retreat.  Since that time, Kerry and Andy Elkind have played a significant role in the development of our team, in particular our Financial Advisors.  Kerry’s ability to balance a direct approach with understanding each individual where they live is extraordinary.  We would recommend Elkind Group to anyone looking to bring their team up to the next level.

davidKerry has gained the trust of members of my senior management team and she knows how to navigate through the inner workings of an organization. With empathy and good judgment Kerry guides executives through the change process and offers common sense solutions in difficult situations. She understands how businesses run and is able to advise within the framework of an organization’s culture. I highly recommend Kerry and the Elkind Group to anyone looking for workplace intervention, executive coaching or customized training.

testimonial-photo-2I’ve worked with The Elkind Group literally for decades, having been a beneficiary of their training in the corporate world.  Based on that experience, I brought them in to work with my own clients. Having tried several other sales training providers, I can say without qualification that they are the best I’ve worked with! I would recommend them without qualification! They go the extra mile, they are genuinely committed to their clients’ success, and they are a real pleasure to work with.

fengKerry Elkind’s “Service to Sales” class brings strong ideas and methodologies to call center managers in China that want to make their call centers count. Kerry is the first person I have met who has developed both a theory and a practical system to realize the transition from cost center to profit center.

OlgaMBergstrom“The Birkman has given me a more tangible way to evaluate my work style, including my stress mode. In understanding my stress mode, I have been able to get out of it more quickly and back to my optimal behavior. Kerry and Andy of The Elkind Group showed me ways to analyze the results to apply them to my daily work life. To me, the Birkman is the gift that keeps on giving.”
