Higher Ground Consulting, led by Ken Byler, and my path crossed about 15 years ago when our rapidly growing food manufacturing and distribution business was in need of a front line leadership curriculum. Ken was contracted to create and deliver a multifaceted program that commenced with laying an Everything DISC foundation coupled with classes on things like effective communications, motivating and developing others, managing conflict, managing performance and change management. The curriculum was a huge hit for the many inexperienced front line leaders in the organization and served to give them confidence to more effectively lead their teams.

Fast forward to 2021 when I reached out to Ken to see if he was up to the challenge again. With quite a few new and inexperienced front line leaders, our rapidly growing wire and cable processor/distributor was in need of a similar leadership education foundation. Ken and I worked to identify a 10 session curriculum - again commencing with Wiley's Everything DISC - Your Management Style and adding many of the same classes as in our first engagement. We were able to launch our sessions in early January 2022 to 26 team members in our management ranks. Heading towards our 4th of the 10 sessions, the feedback has been resoundingly positive. Ken's expert delivery and facilitation of our Everything DISC classes has enthralled the group who cannot believe a 15 minute round of questions can lead to such an accurate assessment of themselves. Ken's student centered teaching style that promotes hands-on learning and self reflection has already started paying dividends with the team as they seek to apply their weekly learnings to their daily leadership activities. We are confident that the Higher Ground curriculum will lead to a more confident and educated management team that will ultimately lead to a more engaged workforce. We are excited for what the future holds and are thankful for what Ken and Wiley have brought to our team.
