Recommendations for The National Learning Institute

Leadership Development Process

“Feedback on the 3M management/leadership processes designed and delivered by the National Learning Institute was fantastic. Participants felt they received enormous value from the 360 degree assessments and the action learning projects which were a key component of the learning process.

Bob Selden is a highly experienced facilitator and coach who brings a very practical, down to earth approach to his work. I would recommend his programs and services highly”
Corporate HRD/HR, 3M Australia

Customer Service Program

Letter from the CEO to participants following the introduction of our Customer Care Program in a Truck Mfg. Division
“Subject: Customer Care—it works!
Last Friday I was delighted to receive an unsolicited call from one of our clients, John P. singing the praises of one of our colleagues.
John commented that he had just finished with a call from Greg S who had just extolled the virtues of the fantastic customer service and professionalism that our colleague Jason L had demonstrated in the delivery process of the new XX vehicles. Greg went on to say that the actions of people like Jason differentiated the service from ordinary performance to that of a WOW factor.”
Tom C, CEO, a Swedish Truck Company

Without doubt, the program has been the most intense, stimulating and enjoyable learning opportunity that I have experienced.”

He was very flexible in moving between theory and experience, in allowing a group to find its own way of working and giving time to individuals to express themselves and work through their particular needs. The work I did with Bob really helped set the direction for the next stage of my career.”
