  • I really learned a lot about the characteristics of different generations.

Client Feedback from Joseph Adiutori
Past President Marsh Landing Board of Directors

  • On behalf of the over 3,000 residents of Marsh Landing I would like to thank Plummer & Associates for your thoroughly professional design, administration, and responsiveness in the management of our first community-wide survey.
  • Your firm has a wonderful reputation for surveying upscale communities such as ours, which led us to choose Plummer & Associates for our survey. Needless to say our expectations were high, but you scored a home-run in exceeding those expectations.
  • You provided survey reports and CDs that were easy to understand, provided a wealth of information, and will make it easier for us to develop both short and long-term objectives during our upcoming July 13th board retreat. The consensus of our board was “there is gold in them there hills” regarding the wealth of high quality feedback we received. Well done!
  • The combination of the well

    designed hard-copy and electronic surveys made it easy for the Marsh Landing homeowners to participate in the survey, and while we have a response rate for elections of only about 36%, the response to the survey approached almost 50%, a level that also exceeded the expectations of the board of directors.

  • Again, thank you for doing such an outstanding job. I look forward to working with Plummer & Associates in the future.

Meeting Facilitation

Client Feedback from Robin Norton, Assistant Vice President, Human Resources and Training, Community First Credit Union

  • I can highly recommend Linda as a meeting facilitator.  She has completed a number of different initiatives for us including our leadership training, diversity training, focus group sessions and feedback to management.  When opportunities such as these come up, she is the person I select to help us.
  • Linda is professional, her materials are always top notch and she builds an excellent rapport with all levels within an organization.  She takes the time to research the organization, understand the culture and get to know the business.  This really makes her facilitation very effective.

  • I have also worked with Linda co-facilitating sessions and she is a pleasure to work with.  I am a professor at Webster University in the Masters Level HR Program and I often have Linda come in to be a guest speaker with the students on various topics.  She is always very well received.

  • Linda is a multi-talented professional that would be an asset to your program!  

Workshop Participant Feedback

FAIR in Action

  • This is a valuable course and the instructor was great.
  • The best lessons I learned were 1) to be more sensitive to the reasons behind actions; and 2) to be more assertive in expressing my own reasons behind my own actions/responses.

Type and Change

  • I very rarely say this about a training class, but I could have benefited from a bit more time. The 3 hours flew by!
  • What I found most useful is meeting people who had a different personality type and then interacting with them. It was very enlightening.

Preventing Sexual Harassment

  • When the impact on the individual and the impact on the organization of sexual harassment were listed on the board, Ms. Plummer used those lists very effectively to demonstrate how devastating poor behavior can be for both the object of the harassment and the organization.
  • Very effective workshop. Linda kept things focused but was not oppressive.

The Road to Resiliency – Customized Dept. Retreat

  • Linda always has us think of “real life” situations to apply what we have learned. That is always helpful.
  • Linda is great! I have taken many of her classes.
