I taught a workshop yesterday, July 18, 2018, in Provo at Corporate Alliance. The topic was The Transformation Challenge – The Six Steps to Planning and Execution. The next one is scheduled for August 22 at Corporate Alliance in Midvale. Here is what the participants have to say about it.
“The Six Steps to Planning and Execution process discussed in this training was great. I appreciated that it all goes back and starts with your “why” and understanding what that is. I think often times as a business owner we can get caught up in the shinny-object syndrome and wanting to do the next “big” thing without considering if it is aligned with our vision. The training takes you through a step by step process to help you understand and consider what is really important and the best way to get the desired result. The best part is this process can be applied to any decision or task. Illens is a great instructor and I recommend this training to all.” —-Dustin Barnhurst, CPA, MAcc, MBA – Audit Partner/Start-up Expert DAVIES+ALLEN, P.C.
”The “Six Steps to Planning and Execution” as presented by Illens Dort this month was a very practical workshop. All attendees were guided through the process of tackling a sizeable goal or problem they were facing. Then by using a proven framework, they made progress in manageable increments.
The real-life story used to show the method was of a family-owned chain of gas stations suddenly facing the threat of bankruptcy and needing to raise millions in a short time. Because they were able to do this, it was inspiring to us as class participants to face up to our individually chosen projects. Heart-felt desires were shared about recruiting for a humanitarian trip, bringing family together for a cruise, finding new clients online and dealing with stolen money. As you can see this process can be applied to many situations.
The purpose of the seminar went beyond reaching goals, valuable as that is. It was also about building people, forging happy relationships and finding hope in a troubled world. There was good camaraderie among the small group, fostered in great part by Illens. Bringing sound principles to bear in your personal life works so well in this type of a setting.” —Brett Littke – RN
The Transformation Challenge training led by Illens Dort is a great training to attend. It takes everything you have learned about SMART goals and helps you look at goals on a higher level. It also helps you to develop a better system for accountability and holding yourself responsible to those goals. This training is great for those who are looking to take their life to the next level. —Kara Jenkins – Director of Events – Provo Beach
“Both Shane and I enjoyed the course and training because it forces you to refocus and reevaluate where you are spending your time as a leader, and where your most effective influences could have the best impact in the organization. Also, as a leader, one of the most effective resources are the people within an organization, and Illens was able to reveal how to tap into your organization to become the best by using these resources to become more effective.” —Catherine Hoover – Managing Director – Express Employment Professionals
“Hi Illens – I loved the workshop. Thanks again! I am very interested in “becoming my best” and this workshop really helped me to take a BIG goal through a process to more clearly visualize it and to ultimately accomplish it. Illens inspires people to work together and to ask the right questions. I think this process could help business leaders find clarity with their company goals as well. I have full confidence that Illens is an expert and would be able to help you execute your vision and goals masterfully.” —TRISH BYINGTON, PHR/SHRM-CP – Payroll/HR Specialist – BBSI
