I was having [decent] success, but I wanted to be great…I have been fortunate that I am successful in my job, but where I struggled was “turning off” my work, and focusing on my family and me…Coaching was a great vehicle for me to become a better husband, father, son, brother, and friend.
You have seriously changed my life forever and have taught me so much about leadership and management. It’s one of those things that you just don’t know what you don’t know…I can’t express how grateful I am for you!
Best money I ever spent! My company hired Southwestern Consulting and Coach Brent Widman…I went into the exercise wanting to balance my personal life and work life more as I was headed into the final and most important income producing part of my career…I jumped into the deep side of the pool during this process and leaned heavily on my coach (Brent) and the resources Southwestern Consulting offers…In the end I gained a sense of control in both my personal and business life, but more importantly, gained a lifelong friend!
I can’t say enough about Brent. I had the opportunity to work with him for a year. During that year, I was able to learn from someone who pushed me beyond what was comfortable. From our time together, we increased our referrals, and made it where people were chasing us down to give them. He helped free up my day by teaching me how to calendar everything (including family/personal time). From this, I was able to accomplish a lot more in less time. I highly recommend using Brent!!
Brent is extremely professional and relatable. He follows through on what he says he will do and has never even been 1 minute late for a scheduled meeting. Every time I talk with him he is energetic and positive. We have been working together for about 6 months now and three of those have been the best of my career so far. I’m very impressed with the Southwestern program but more importantly with Brent Widman.”
