Here’s what some of our business partners have said about working with Todd Averett.

Todd has done a fantastic job in bringing our leadership team together to execute on our strategic goals. He was able to break the pieces down into manageable parts, while driving us all to the end goal. Todd's knowledge of the big picture from a business and HR perspective and his attention to detail proved to be a valuable contribution. Todd has become a trusted advisor within HR and our organization and I would highly recommend him.

Tara Greskoviak, Human Resources Director, CIVICPLUS

I worked with Todd as a part of an executive coaching program and was extremely pleased with the results. The program was highly customized to my individual needs and helped to leverage my strengths and develop my shortcomings. I look forward to working with him again!

Mike Eldridge, President and CEO, Sunflower Marketing

I’ve been to countless conferences, trainings, and other traditional leadership development programs over the years, but nothing has been nearly as valuable as the recent sessions I’ve had with Todd. The individual attention and personalized feedback make our discussions extremely pointed and valuable to the specific opportunities and challenges I am facing. In our discussions I routinely have a number of ‘light bulb’ moments that I likely would not have without Todd’s input and questions. Plus, Todd has a knack for assigning ‘homework’ that has always proven to be incredibly relevant and beneficial without being burdensome.

Jay Brost, Vice President, Consumer Marketing, Advisors Excel

Todd has done a fantastic job with our senior leadership teams. His charismatic way of facilitating dialogue has helped our leaders generate a number of key insights that are critical to our transformation initiatives. I have worked with Todd for over 15 years and I continue to leverage him whenever we have a need for external expertise in developing our leaders or aligning on strategic direction.

Erik Lewis, Chief Human Resource Officer, Apple Leisure Group

Todd and I have had the chance to collaborate and deliver projects together. He has a tremendous ability to bring complex discussions down to their core, focusing in on the most strategic elements. He frequently leverages his wealth of experience to identify risks and consider alternative ways of working toward solutions. In addition to these things, he is simply easy to work and get along with, consistently recognizing the value in other's contributions.

Kyle Brost, Principal, The Choice Group

The New Leader Assimilation Session provided me with the opportunity to learn more about myself as a leader and about my team. Together, we discovered how best to communicate with one another and how to work most effectively as a team. Drawing on years of experience in human resources, Todd was able to use real-life examples to illustrate his points and facilitate meaningful conversation.

Brett Martin, VP of Community Impact, United Way of Greater Topeka

I had the opportunity to experience Mr. Averett's training approach during the Kansas Community College Leadership Institute. He provides a fast pace, high energy, and relevant presentation!

Elaine Simmons, Dean of Workforce Training and Community Education, Barton Community College

I recently had the opportunity to attend a training session conducted by Todd Averett of Leading People Partners. I found his presentation, Your Personal Leadership Brand, very engaging and well organized. He provided practical information which was easily applicable to personal and professional situations. His presentation was packed full of very useful information which allowed me to understand why your personal leadership brand is so important. I feel I am able to strengthen my personal leadership brand because of the concepts he shared. Mr. Averett was very personable, professional and his presentation style interactive. I highly recommend Mr. Averett and appreciate the strategies and tools he shared with us.

Lisa Perez Miller, VP of Students/ Enrollment Management, Pratt Community College

Your ability to break down an issue, project, concern, etc and formulate it into a way for everyone to understand the defined issue, risk, and potential solutions is truly an outstanding strength.

Todd asks insightful questions that focus leaders on talent issues.
