What Our Clients Are Saying
EXECUTIVE VP, MANAGEMENT & OPERATIONS
THE HOWARD HUGHES CORPORATION
Benchmark’s leadership coaching has substantially improved my leadership skills and self awareness. I am now a more strategic and collaborative leader. Benchmark showed me how to allow team members to grow and assume more responsibility, while ensuring I remain aligned with the senior leadership team’s goals. With a stronger self-awareness, I am also a better listener – and much more effective at delivering messages and engaging large groups with greater confidence.
PRESIDENT - Elkem
Benchmark delivers solid strategies for managing challenging situations during crises. Their strategies are invaluable to us in not only in dealing with crisis situations – but also in our team’s daily communications as we focus on collaborative and cooperative leadership to better manage daily issues and challenges that come up. Benchmark’s comprehensive methodologies and support continually helps our team increase our confidence and competence in many areas.
HCL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
I read all of the top books on Emotional Intelligence (EQ), but Benchmark showed me the skills and communication tools I needed to actually increase my EQ, motivation and leadership skills. I find Benchmark’s coaching style to be highly effective – it is application-oriented and combines the Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) concepts with practical demonstrations and role-playing. Benchmark’s coaching is worth the investment!

CALIFORNIA MLSLISTINGS, INC.
Benchmark’s work with my team at Shell Oil in the areas of stakeholder relationships, crisis media training and communications could not have been paralleled by any other company. The firm is unique because their leaders bring a unique set of skills to the table. Their wide range knowledge of business strategy, the law, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and news media enables them to offer a broad menu of value and expertise. And frankly, they are great people who make work more enjoyable!
HUMAN RESOURCES PRACTICE LEADER
I have had the opportunity to work with many different vendors and Benchmark is an organization that I have depended upon continuously to provide coaching support to address interesting and challenging situations. Their in-class training is also some of the best I have witnessed, producing consistent and quality results. If called upon, that I would gladly refer Benchmark because they have always exceeded expectations.
