Logo_Horizontal_Color_with_K_text“We have taken the majority of our senior management team through the Achievers I class and consider it to be a bedrock part of our leadership training program. Most of our folks are now cycling through advanced classes. This instruction does much more than deliver core skills—it helps our people to become values-oriented leaders and more balanced individuals.” ~ Art Zeile, CEO,

Stryker Orthopaedics

“Dr. Bell has put together a well-thought-out and well-researched scientific model to explain what do Achievers do, and how do I get there in my own life.  This was a very enlightening experience, and has forever changed the way I view myself and my interactions with others, both professionally and personally.”  ~ Mr. Scott Ford, Production Team Lead, Stryker Orthopaedics

Petroleum Products Corporation

“I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful training day on Tuesday.  Our people ate it up.  We had our statement meeting yesterday and it was a big part of our discussion.  I have had many of our managers tell me that they have already had team meetings, used your talk as a framework for future performance in working together, etc.  It was very valuable and we thank you for such a wonderful legacy you’ve left with us.  We need to do this again sometime – before too long!” ~ Mr. John Arnold, Petroleum Products Corp.

Casella Waste Systems, Inc.

“The Achiever Series is an extraordinary, exhilarating and profoundly genuine way to understand yourself and the world around you, and then build yourself and those around you. My experience with Bell Leadership has put me on the path to some of the deepest and most meaningful learning and growth of my life. Above all, I count meeting Dr. Bell among the greatest blessings of my life and my career. Everyone should do whatever it takes to meet him, and learn from him.” ~ Joe Fusco, Vice President, Casella Waste Systems, Inc.


“As a CPA, I am required to have 40 hours of continuing education a year to maintain my license. Over my 25 years, I have participated in a lot of educational seminars. Bell Leadership is the best training I have ever attended. Bell Leadership not only makes me better professionally, but also makes me better for my family and the volunteer organizations on which I serve. Thanks for providing great training that makes me a better person in ALL facets of my life!” ~ Mr. Tommy Page, CFO, Carolina Beverage

The Taurean Corp

C58EA28C-18C0-4a97-9AF2-036E93DDAFB3“In a lifetime, I imagine there are only a small number of events we consider to be truly “life-changing.”  For me, this experience is certainly one of them.  The learning and material I was exposed to in these few short days is enough to chisel a brand new path for my life – and I’ve already started! And while I will always wish that I discovered this much sooner in life, I am lucky and grateful that I now have this valuable framework that will allow me to Achieve Forward! Forever!” ~ Mr. Jeffrey Jaime, Founder and CEO, The Taurean Corp

Nottingham Investment Administration

“I feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity through my company to attend this seminar. I am enthused that the direction provided will not only benefit me in a work environment but additionally help me to improve and hopefully excel as a parent. The seminar has helped me to see that everything I say and do has a programming impression on my children. I am grateful to Dr. Bell for sharing his insight and wisdom.” ~ Ms. Katherine Honey, Managing Director, Client Development, Nottingham Investment Administration

NewsBank, Inc.

News Bank“Dr. Bell’s addictive passion for the subject rubs off on you immediately.    Having been to other multiple day seminars of varying topics… no seminar has left me enthusiastically believing what I had learned will make a difference in both my personal life and my career.    This one did that in spades!   I look forward to the next course.” ~ Mr. Phil Chimbolo, VP, Business Operations, NewsBank, Inc.

Prometheus Group Enterprises, LLC

“This has been a life changing event for me.  I made mention to friends just after the second day that I was thankful for their answers in my profile as it helped me see through the cloudy water that is my pride.  I think that is true.  I’ve found myself in a “new place” now, and even had one of my management team call me after our first staff meeting to tell me that he was “thankful for my new attitude” and that he was challenged now to perform at a higher level.  This has caused me to take stock in my work life, my relationship with my wife and children, and really every part of what I’m doing day to day.  I’m very thankful for this, and look forward to offering this to my whole company in the coming months.” ~ Mr. Robert Hancock, CEO, Prometheus Group Enterprises, LLC
