“I attended the “Winning Difficult People” seminar for OBOA on December 9th.  The class was excellent and definitely gives me a point to begin moving forward in this area.  Tim Schneider was, of course, great, but I wanted to call out Kelley Reynolds.  She has an engaging presenting style and made it easy to follow along.  Good job!”

“it was PERFECT to receive this fantastic boost which not only picked me up a bit but gave me more tools to keep my team up.  It has been challenging and I have learned a lot about humans in tension and the value of everything.  A priceless experience and your tool helped me structure my learning and my key takeaways for life.  I have grown some more. Thank you so much! Perfect timing. Or should i say… perfect TIMming”

“I have no idea how Tim remembers as much as he does. It’s incredible. He is a fantastic speaker who can find personal connections with the class and curriculum, but he can also recall anecdotes about class members that is truly astounding. It’s been a pleasure to learn from him.” 


Pomai Weall February 12, 2020

“The work you have been doing with us has made a significant impact on our leadership teams. Behavior change continues to be a work in progress.”

Aubrianna Quist December 2, 2019

“Tim is a great facilitator. He really keeps you engaged in the content. I’m always impressed in how he keeps track of who he has called on, he has yet to miss anyone. Kelly and Matt are great as well.” 


Nicole Shelton December 2, 2019

“Tim is engaging and truly cares about the growth of emerging and current leaders. I have learned so much from Tim that I am applying in my daily leadership practices. In addition, Tim and his team have boosted my confidence as a leader. I am excited to continue applying the tools that I was given through Leadership Advance.” 

Alyx Peterson December 2, 2019

“Tim was funny and engaging and I was never bored in classes that are pretty heavy in lecture, which is saying a lot. We also had Kelly and Matt who were very engaging as well.”

“A great book Tim Schneider one of my favorite reads.

David Spencer November 10, 2019

LeadWell by Tim Schneider

“Loved the book. Great read!  Vision and direction is essential for direction of your team. People buy what you Believe In, not what you sell. When believing in your vision, your team will follow. Reinforce both vision and values of the team.”Let’s win this together!” – such a powerful statement. 

Milica Grujic October 2, 2019

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the Leadership Advance experience and wish it wasn’t ending already!  Tim, I could listen to you for hours – I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and appreciate your style. Don’t change a thing and I hope our paths cross again.

“I’ve told several people this week that Tim is the best instructor/facilitator I’ve seen in the past 25 years. Great job! Hope to see you again in the near future. During my military career I attended several leadership classes, and in some of those we all knew parts of what they were saying simply “will not work”. That was definitely NOT the case here.”

“I wanted to personally take time out to thank you for all of the support and encouragement that I received in your HR Management Course moons ago. I was overwhelmed and wanted to go further in HR. Your program did take me further in the field. I was working at Bally’s at the time and they even told me that they would not have considered me for a position in Employee Relations; if I had not had your course.” 


Tracy Yoder February 25, 2020

Kaercher Insurance

“I wanted to thank you for giving me the tools to become a better leader and person in and out of the office. Finishing the year with an emphasis in listening, collaboration, and self-realization got me ready to conquer this new year.  Overall I have just been more engaging with clients, office teammates, and my personal relationships.” 


Chad Kaercher January 8, 2020

“Tim was very engaging, humorous, and knowledgeable. A true chameleon. The days were long, but – for me – Tim’s approach to teaching kept things from getting stale and boring during those long hours.” 


Victoria Howell December 6, 2019

“The course facilitator was very engaging and open. He made the course fun.” 


Allen Stephenson December 2, 2019

“I appreciated the quick pace of the conversations….it didn’t seem like we got hung up on any particular topic. I also enjoyed Tim’s direct style.” 

Brad Craft December 2, 2019

“I am truly appreciative of all that you taught and shared with our group. As you mentioned, sometimes “swiveling” the mirror is the first step in identifying how those in management can be effective leaders.  Tim was quick to answer questions and was practical in his approach to situations that were mentioned by co-workers. He was genuine in his delivery and communicated the training material in a clear and concise manner. I look forward to the next opportunity that I have in which I get to learn more from him.” 


Allyssa Tamblingson November 26, 2019

“I really enjoyed the fast paced environment that Tim provided. Class was engaging, interactive, and fun. I appreciated that the facilitators gave everyone a chance to speak and that they had a sense of humor.”

“Wanted to also thank Tim, Kelley, and their entire Aegis team for all the hard work they have been doing for our classes.  Tim and Kelley are passionate about what they do.  A+++++ They have exceeded my expectations and I hope the LV Chamber continues to utilize them as a leadership partner into the future.

Sergio Garcia November 10, 2020

“I felt motivated and my attention rarely wavered (difficult with constant distractions by “attending” via computer at work). Tim kept me intrigued and interested. I learned a few things about myself (speech pace, TM interactions…etc.) that will help me with my colleagues and TMs. Thank you.”

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. 

Karla Roberts December 13, 2018

Christ Wilener November 25, 2017

“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.

Suzann Smith March 29, 2018

“Thank you for the amazing day today. It was awesome!

Simeon Marinov December 7, 2017

“Tim was an all around excellent guy and was one of the leading factors in wanting to continue to join the class each session. He’s an intelligent person who seems to really care abut the people in class and promotes healthy learning. Excellent teacher/facilitator.

“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.”  


Keith Bacon August 16, 2019

San Manuel Tribe

“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.”

Canna Hemp

“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”

I learned a lot from him and this 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.”

Nick Chand March 29, 2019

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

“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!” 


Tim Kauppi May 17, 2019

City of Ogden

“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.”

“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

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.”
