What People Are Saying

Sabrena, Supervisor

Being a manager means balancing the needs, wants, likes and dislikes of an entire team to create a positive team who can work together to get the mission done. Wow, no wonder it isn’t easy to manage! However, Brenda brings problems AND example solutions into the classroom for discussion. These exercises helped me create new perspectives and strategies to gain trust and outcomes from the team.

We were very fortunate to have Brenda with Risner Results recently join our annual KC LOCAL HOMES goal setting breakfast. After a brief Zoom consultation, she was able to provide a talk that was motivational, interesting, and interactive. We were a small group and she was able to pick up on our vibe, keeping the event casual and informal. She traveled to our location and did a great job with props and handouts, and the information she shared was very relevant and helpful to our strategic planning session. I will definitely be hiring Brenda in the future and am happy to recommend her to others looking for a great speaker/coach.
