“I wanted to share how fantastic Matt was in our last session.  Within minutes he had created a connection with the group that lasted the entire time, and I was super pleased with how quickly he was comfortable….Anyway, thank you for ensuring that the quality and outstanding professionalism that Aegis is known for resides with every facilitator.  It’s great to know we are always in good hands.”

“Your training has helped me look ‘outside the box’ to keep employees motivated and engaged. You and your staff are exceptional! I have attended various types of training to help influence staff in a positive way but your training techniques are……well….they WORK! So thanks again for time well spent in your workshops. Hope to see you next year at Educode!!”

“Tim is excellent at what he does.  Fantastic interaction with the group.”

Paul Genner January 28, 2019

“You were incredibly insightful yesterday and your questions were so very thoughtful. Getting the team together and collaborating  in a short amount of time sounded difficult but you did it with such ease and professionalism. The team continued to talk about the engagement during the session well throughout the evening and I wanted you to know how grateful we all are.

“Tim is very energetic and easy to listen to.  Reminded me of some things I need to change right away.

“Thanks a million Tim Schneider and Katie Meeks for the amazing, incredibly enjoyable and inspiring two days that we spent together!!!! You guys are fantastic.

Madalina Radulescu November 25, 2017

“I had no idea how exciting and enlightening this program would be. I not only got a great source of information, but I had a lot of fun. This program gets a Siskel and Ebert 2 thumbs up. Exuberant, energetic, and entertaining delivery, his base knowledge and advanced instructional techniques, the program would be just another boring mid-range informative adult education class. I recommend this class for all management personnel.

Calvin Griffin November 25, 2017

“Thank you so much for the fantastic week. You’ve obviously got a gift for what you teach that shows through how you engage your audience. Really enjoyed the fun and informative training tools you and your team provided. Honestly, best week of training I’ve ever attended.

“Tim has significant know-how and creates an enjoyable learning experience. The insights he shared, combined with his program materials and LeadWell book, have improved the way I lead. His influence and guidance has permanently and positively shaped my leadership competencies. Tim shared a wealth of knowledge that rang true with my individual “morality” and “emotions.” Learnings like, “my interactions with others needs to leave them with a positive feeling and desire to communicate with me again” seemed debatable when first articulated. But I took this and other learnings to heart and ultimately concluded they were correct. It is clear that Tim has deeply considered/reflected on the information and the most effective ways to convey it.  I wouldn’t change anything… On second thought, perhaps More Cowbell.”

“Tim did a wonderful job at keeping our small class engaged at all times as well as making sure each one of us fully understood a topic. He greatly challenged me and made me think deeper about the new leadership role I was taking on.”

“I just wanted to personally thank you for coming by. I didn’t get a chance to before you left, but it was a great class on my end and I learned a lot that I did not or ever learned from any employers in the past. Also I wanted to inform you my team who was in the first meeting about 10 of us, all also enjoyed your class”

“Rarely do you get a facilitator with such dynamic ability to inspire leaders to move to a higher level like you do with Tim. He was able to navigate the different communication and leadership styles to create a learning environment that kept every one engaged at every session. Our leaders keep talking about how they have improved their skills, and I am grateful that Tim was able to help us through this amazing program.”

I really enjoyed Tim. He was perfect for this audience. The training was not warm and fuzzy, and that is why it was effective. It made me reflect on my leadership style and what I’ve been doing a poor job at, and now I’ve got the tools to be better and lead more effectively.  Turning our phones off was critical, and I love how Tim kept us on our toes. Calling on people at random is a great way to keep people engaged throughout a long couple of days.  I’m grateful that our company provided this training. It was fantastic and my hope is that we are all better for it.

Justin Plank November 16, 2018

What a great message!  You always inspire me.”

“Tim Schneider is a great facilitator, his style and enthusiasm kept me involved and interested in the course material. I would recommend the course to others to sharpen their leadership skills, the ten competencies of leadership would make one a better leader period.

Shervin James June 25, 2019

“Tim possesses great energy and passion for his work. His knowledge of the subject matter is extremely deep and he has structured the program materials and discussion in a way that is easy to remember and implement after you leave the classroom. I have attended several leadership training programs in my past including a week-long training last year for my prior job as city clerk/administrator for a small city in Minnesota.  Your training is the best leadership training that I have ever attended.  I have taken way more out of your program than all of the others combined.  Keep up the great work!”

“As an introverted person, it is very easy for me to sit on the back row not contributing to the class and getting lost in my own thoughts. That was not the case with this block of training. It was virtually impossible to simply sit back and observe. During this week-long session, I was forced out of my bubble and made to interact with complete strangers. That alone gave me a new confidence and provided me with a new prospective on personal interaction. This was, easily, the best professional training I have attended. ”

“Leadership and Management Academy 6 was truly a life changing experience! I remember how nervous I was in the first session because I didn’t know what to expect and by the last, I didn’t want it end. I will forever be grateful for Tim Schneider and Kayla Brown-Cestero. They not only helped me to grow as a leader but also empowered me with a determination to lead better in every one of my leadership roles as a DAFS employee, Pastor, wife and mother. No other training that I have ever received in the workplace can compare to this course, it is definitely top notch! I will really miss both Tim and Kayla.”

Rachel Chaisson July 6, 2017

Don Buckley March 28, 2018

Tim, I want to sincerely say thank you. Your advice and mentor-ship over the past several months/years have been invaluable to me, and you’ve been an integral part of my professional development. I’m completely sincere when I say you are a total rock star as an instructor and mentor, and I wouldn’t be here today in this position without you. Humbly, gratefully, and appreciatively, Thank you!”

“Tim is a tough but fair trainer, which is my preferred trainer template. I appreciate his sense of humor and how he incorporates this into the content of the course.  The Peer Coaching aspect was a novel one, but powerful to me in this process. Having a focused relationship with a fellow classmate helped to “build in” a support network in sharing the content and experience.”  


Craig Sisco September 12, 2019

Thanks for a quite insightful and fun training.” 

Yuliya Chekhter August 3, 2019

“Tim is fantastic! In most classes I have attended, I tend to drift and lose concentration. Tim kept me totally engaged and interested throughout every class. It was always interesting and fun. Certainly there were times when it may have been a little difficult, but that is all part of the learning process and I appreciate the entire process. I always looked forward to this class. Thank you for such a valuable tool.”

“Tim was wonderful. I enjoyed his banter because it is very much like my own. I learned a lot and I enjoyed the way he made us uncomfortable and got us out of our comfort zones to help us grow. There were things I felt that I could immediately put in place as soon as I came back to work as well as things that would take some time to work on.”

Emily Richards March 29, 2019

“Tim, I thought, hands down, you are one of the best presenters we have had in many a year, you kept the group engaged, interested and keen to participate, challenged us frequently, dealt with touchy matters exceptionally well, and brought a huge amount of humor into everything.

Your facilitated learning environments has generated improved communications and thoughtful leadership discussions well beyond the class days we have spent together. Thank you and well done.”

Angela LaFrance March 28, 2018

“If you have not been in the same room as Tim, I strongly suggest you attend one of his speaking engagements. The energy and enthusiasm as well as his business acumen are a real treat to not only listen to but to actually be a part of. You will leave with a sense of can do empowerment. The most positive and uplifting speakers you will have the privilege of hearing!”
