I would recommend Gale Mote to any company that wants to move ahead… Gale’s ability to teach to the learner is outstanding… Wonderful training… I appreciate how comfortable our team felt actively participating and being totally open in the sessions… All organizations who rely on people need this. —Midwest Industries

The program makes me think about how a ‘team’ affects our department and how to pull out each one of our strengths. We need to do more of this, it was awesome!Employee, Collins Aerospace

I’m a member of my bank’s senior management team. We initially engaged Gale as a consultant to bring potential solutions to issues we’ve struggled with. Specifically, we sought guidance on improving how meetings were conducted, making timely decisions, holding each other accountable, trusting each other and believing the senior team was team #1 at work.
Of the consultants I’ve worked with in the past, Gale far exceeds the others in every category. Her commitment, wisdom, drive, enthusiasm, and wit are exactly what we have needed and will continue to look forward to.
We’ve experienced some changing of the guard within our team, but I expect the “new and improved” team will work exceedingly well with the addition of new members going forward. The sense of purpose, dedication to each other, and overall commitment is much greater now than before.
I highly recommend other managers to consider Gale as their mentor, consultant and coach. She works well with the entire team, and with each member individually. E. Michael Farrell, Chief Operating Officer, First Security Bank and Trust, Charles City, IA
