Life is so funny and so unpredictable! In 2004, I was hired for a sales position with a consulting company. Instead of starting in sales, they had a gap elsewhere in the organization and plugged me into it. I dove into certifications to master this new position of facilitating workshops for adult learning and coaching for improved performance.
Over the next four years, I traveled across the country, training in large corporations, an underground silver mine, manufacturing facilities, financial institutions and even a national laboratory. In these training environments I helped solve many challenges within organizations.
- People did not understand how to work together effectively
- Sales were complicated and close ratios were low
- The company’s vision weren’t clear from leadership down through the ranks of employees
- New managers and supervisors were promoted and were lost on how to shift into management roles
- Teams were fragmented or fighting
These trainings provided education, tools and productive results.
2008 was an eye opening year in America and for me – I was laid off. WHAT! NOW WHAT! My husband gave me the ticket out of the pity party I was having. I’ll never forget his question: “Ker, what do you want to do?” I replied, I LOVE training and coaching. His sage advice? Open my own business, and that is exactly what I did.
In 2008, I promoted myself from Vice President with my former employer to President of my own company, Results 4 Business. We’re a training and coaching company combining my diverse background of sales, marketing, leadership, facilitation, planning and coaching to bring out the best in you, your employees, your company.
My company is built on principles we were raised with as kids. Our parents rules were pretty simple: don’t lie, cheat, or steal.
While growing up, our family vacations were always to go camping. My dad was a traveling salesperson, and when he came home, he wanted to get away. We would go camping for two weeks at a time in the mountains.
As a kid, I loved it.
Now today, I think I like hotels much better. Camping was impactful in my life, because Dad had one more principle.
Upon arrival, Dad would ask, “What’s the rule?”
And all of us kids would say,
“Leave the campground cleaner than we found it.”
We’d get out of the car, pick up trash, collect firewood, and we would enjoy our stay.
When we left, we did it in reverse. We collected firewood, and left it behind for the person behind us and we made sure we didn’t leave any trash.
These principles have become the values I use every day. I treat your business as if it were my own. When we meet, my intent is to work together and make your business better than I found it. I’d like to partner with you to take your business to the next level.
