What Our Clients Are Saying
EXECUTIVE VP, MANAGEMENT & OPERATIONS
THE HOWARD HUGHES CORPORATION
Benchmark’s leadership coaching substantially improved my leadership skills, self awareness and presentation skills. 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 improved my executive team alignment skills. I am also a better listener – their listening skills are top notch! Their presentation skills training helped me engage large groups with greater confidence and their storytelling skills changed how I present.
PRESIDENT - Elkem
Benchmark delivers solid leadership skills, as well as risk management and crisis communication strategies. Their leadership communication strategies are invaluable to us in not only in dealing with crisis situations – but also in our daily team communications as we focus on collaborative leadership and leadership skills to better manage daily issues and challenges. Benchmark provides comprehensive crisis leadership development support and crisis response methodologies to help our team build our confidence and competence in many areas.
HCL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Executive women need top leadership coaching to succeed today. I read the best sellers on Emotional Intelligence (EQ), but Benchmark showed me the communication skills and leadership strategies I needed to actually increase my EQ, motivation and leadership skills. Benchmark’s coaching style is highly effective – it is application-oriented and combines the Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) strategies with practical demonstrations and role-playing. Benchmark’s executive coaching for women is well worth the investment!
VICE-PRESIDENT PUBLIC AFFAIRS
CALIFORNIA MLSLISTINGS, INC.
Benchmark’s team is made up of great people who work more enjoyable! They were instrumental in helping my team at Shell Oil improve our stakeholder relationships, stakeholder engagement, media relations and crisis management capabilities. Their media crisis training and stakeholder communications consulting could not have been paralleled by any other company because their leaders bring a unique set of skills to the table – law, business strategy, media relations, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), expertise in human behavior, etc. Their wide-range knowledge base enables them to offer a broad menu of value and expertise that cannot be matched.

In my career with Disney, Aramark and other Fortune 500 groups, I have worked with many different vendors and I have depended upon Benchmark continuously to provide leadership assessments and executive skills 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. Benchmark has always exceeded my expectations with their leadership development, leadership skills, communication and presentation skills expertise.
