VICE-PRESIDENT PUBLIC AFFAIRS
CALIFORNIA MLSLISTINGS, INC.
Benchmark is unique! Their leaders have a very a unique set of skills that allows them to offer highly effective business consulting. They made a huge difference for my team at Shell Oil. They delivered great solutions in stakeholder engagement, media training and crisis communications. Their unique skills include expertise in law, media and Neuro Linguistics, the study of behavior and language patterns. This enables them to offer a broad menu of value and expertise that other firms simply cannot deliver. Also, they are great people and working with them is enjoyable!
VICE PRESIDENT - HCL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Studies prove Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is key to leadership success – the ability to identify and manage emotions. I read the best selling books on EQ, but it was not until I worked with Benchmark that I understood how to increase my EQ! Their leadership experts also equipped me with better motivation tools and leadership skills. Benchmark’s coaching style is uniquely application-oriented – actionable and relevant! Their neuro linguistics strategies are supplemented with practical role-plays to solidify new skills.
