The recommendation of a transformed cynic: Kimberly is a bit like a cyclone – she will turn your world upside down and blow you away. Unlike a cyclone, however, she will be sure that all of the important pieces remain; neatly reorganized and stronger than before she met you. She will also, undoubtedly, leave many gems behind for you as well – some ready to display and others for you to continue polishing throughout your life and career. You will definitely be richer for having crossed her pa… Read more
Kimberly Wiefling recently conducted an outstanding workshop at Stanford University, on the topic of engineering in the face of very large, complex problems, as part of a new graduate-level course I’m teaching on Engineering and Climate Change. The way Kimberly helped the students experience the frustration of an “unsolvable” problem and then helped them experience how such problems are solved was brilliant. Kimberly’s approach is so lively and fun that even while you are gratified by her terrif… Read more
Kimberly delivers the goods with passion and compassion. She is a dedicated leader who achieves what at first seems insurmountable. I highly recommend this Champion of change and published author.
Kimberly Wiefling of Wiefling Consultants was my last instructor in completing my two certificates in Project Management, yet by far she was the most inspiring, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable instructor of both PM series of classes, particularly in developing my negotiation skills. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to learn from such an expert first hand.
“The Hospitality Leadership Sessions have been invaluable. Dedicated time getting to know one another while developing life-long leadership skills is a true gift. We’ve been able to gain different perspectives and viewpoints along the way through each of the sessions. The laughter alone is good for the soul.” – Jodi Krefetz, Director, Food Services
“This time with peers has given us time to get to know each other, laugh with each other and learn about each other. It’s hard to find that time during the workday and without the ability to have any social events, we’re lucky to be able to come together for some relaxed time together that’s not focused on the day-to-day tasks.” – Terry Duffina, Director, Sustainability
Your book is going to help people survive the corporate zoo that is project management!
Kimberly is dynamic and focused, and an incredible professional in all her activities. She is talented, creative, articulate, and has super people skills. I give her my highest endorsement.
I would like you to know how much I have so appreciated all the help you have provided me. Even though there have been some times of hardness and difficulties, you successfully and strongly put me though during the workshop. Through the workshop, I really felt your professionalism, and positive thinking with great energy. Thanks to your continuous support and advice, I could learn to become a real global leader (Woo Hoo!!!).
I plan to recommend attending Kimberly’s presentation to everyone I know as one of the best project management presentations I have ever attended. It gives project managers the kick in the butt call-to-action they need.
