"We hired Black River to provide our first ever leadership training at Bannock County. Rob was fantastic in meeting with us several times to help us develop a training program that fit exactly what we wanted. During the course of the training (it happened over the course of 6 months), we were in frequent contact to check our progress and make content adjustments. As a seasoned leadership training attendee, I have been very pleased with Black River and their approach. I have learned a few new things and most importantly, our team has grown from the training. I would highly encourage anyone looking for training to consider Black River. You will find thoughtful individuals who are genuinely concerned about you and your organization."
"Black River PM provided us with some great strategic planning facilitation and team communications growth this past year. Highly recommend their services. Very client focused as well to help you get exactly what you need."
"I am on the board of a nonprofit organization. Angie provided an assessment for our personal, professional and leadership development. From that assessment I found personal things I wanted to work on so I engaged Angie as my coach. Through that coaching I’ve seen improvement in those areas I wished to further develop and enhance in both my personal and professional life. Angie is my biggest cheerleader and has offered me the tools to re-examine situations and thought processes to develop myself into a better leader and have better relationships in both my personal and professional life. I really value her expertise and encourage anyone wishing to develop skills to live a better life to consult Angie for ways to make that happen."
"Black River has helped my organization in more ways than I can count. The assessments alone have helped my team work together far better than ever before. The assessments helped the staff to understand how each person is unique and ticks differently. I have seen dramatic changes in management meetings and interactions. Rob and Angie are both a wealth of knowledge and are such a pleasure to work with."
"Black River tailored training and materials to meet the unique needs of our workforce and industry. Angie and Rob are the best of the best! I highly recommend them for your professional and personal development needs!"
"Black River PM are tremendously helpful in identifying opportunities for growth within an organization. Through the DISC assessment and counseling with our group we have found areas we can improve on, talents we are missing, and narrow down our goals."
"The division of adult education has benefited greatly from the training that we received as a staff. We understand each other's strengths better and will only make us better as a team. I strongly encourage other departments or businesses to participate in the training that is provided by Angie and Rob. Angie has helped us build a culture that we much-needed- one of respect, trust, and rapport."
"I don’t think there are enough good things that I can say about the services that Angie and Rob offer. Their knowledge and expertise in personal and professional development is astounding. I have been through several of their classes and presentations and I learn something new every time. My staff and I are better people, better leaders, and a better organization because of their services. Recommend 10/10!"
"My fiancé and I took their couples assessment before we were engaged. We are getting married in August. We loved that it taught us how to communicate and understand where the other person was coming from. I do not recommend taking these kind of assessments without professional guidance! We tried... it was awful. Angie and Rob are so great at what they do! We received a full 84 page report on how to better ourselves and communicate with each other. I would highly recommend Black River to couples, team, singles, work places and honestly everyone! It is a really great one of a kind service"
"Rob and Angie offer a resource unlike any other in our area. With their diverse expertise, they are able to offer help in so many arenas; including the "tough" people skills that are desperately needed in the workplace and the hard to master planning and processes used in the workplace. Personally, I was first impressed by taking a human resource class offered by Rob. The processes and tools he showed me while achieving my graduate degree have helped me build my book of tools and I utilize many in my career, and his expertise in organizational psychology is unmatched! Angie's genuine and authentic approach to dealing with people and helping others discover more about themselves and others is a wonderful tool that is needed in the workplace and at home! She is passionate, knowledgeable and an amazing coach! If organizations have the opportunity to utilize Black River PM, they should not hesitate!"
"Angie mentored and helped train me in becoming EQ and DISC certified. She was professional, supportive, knowledgeable, and had great follow-through. Her passion for the impact of the work/training that she does as well as developing others into the best versions of themselves is contagious."
"Black River has provided the board of my nonprofit organization the tools for personal, professional and team building development. They have extended the opportunity to our professional nonprofit members as they have expressed the need for professional development in our area. I have had the opportunity to receive personal coaching from Rob and Angie as well. I've felt the improvement within my professional and personal relationships and I couldn't be more grateful to them for that. The assessments they provide will help you gain an understanding of yourself as well as others so that you can manage different behavior styles. I highly recommend their services!"
"I have completed the DISC assessment with Black River. This behavior assessment helped me be more aware of my strengths and weaknesses along with how to work harmoniously with others. My 1st assessment was last year, I'm going to be completing another this month and look forward to the new results!"
"Working as our interim COO during a period of uncomfortable growth, Marlene helped us to establish a foundation that could support the rate at which we needed to scale to meet customer demand. Her perspective on navigating client interactions, contract negotiations, pain points and refining our product offerings, helped us to stabilize while growing simultaneously. From crafting job descriptions and contracts, to establishing consistent team leadership habits, Marlene gave me confidence and clarity in my role as a business owner and team leader. The added work of DISC Assessments and leveraging team strengths and skill sets took our productivity to the level we needed to expand capacity and get prepared for the growing demand. We've experienced 20% growth in revenue since working with Marlene. She's a valuable asset for any team that is ready to scale and grow!"
