What Breakthrough Students Say…

What Breakthrough Students Say…

I have attended several leadership trainings over the years, and Jeffrey's two-day workshop stands out as among the best I've personally experienced. Participation was required from all individuals. I plan to send other members of my office staff to the workshops.

Dallas Smith
Executive Producer / Healing Healthcare Systems

Jeffery’s training techniques in leadership were in depth and creative. His enthusiasm draws you in to be at your best in a management role in your company or running your own business.

Georgia Baker
VP Business Development / Heritage Bank

Jeff’s greatest strength is making learning fun, yet challenging, so that everyone is engaged. His content is always rich, but I learned the most from observing how he motivates others. Jeff is a true professional - well organized, confident, approachable and inspiring.

Rachel Yelley
Marketing / Communications Manager / United Construction

What we learned is that everyone plays a vital role. And as a leader, if we can draw on the strengths of others, we can create excellence.

Staci Nauman
Director of Corporate Support / KNPB Channel 5

I was fortunate to be a part of Jeff's leadership training in Reno, NV for two days in November 2018. This was not your typical leadership training - no powerpoint or lectures. Every activity was hands-on and engaging.

Miranda Sanford
Development Officer / Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation

He helped keep me on course between a good business climate into one that was in serious decline. I am able to continue because of the methods, ideas and proceedures Jeffrey helped to develop. He is an excellent coach, motovator and innovator.

David Murakami
Account Director / National Cinemedia

What I learned in this class was goal setting, teamwork, leadership and communication skills. I learned to lead by example.

Scott Wagner
Service Manager / Gardner Engineering

The two day Breakthrough training was unlike any other training I have been through. Jeffrey gets to know everyone by the end of the first day and uses what he knows about you to customize his training to fit your needs. I felt like I learned more about myself personally and professionally and was able to take the tools I learned from his training and apply them in real life situations.

Devin Miller
Administrative Assistant / Truckee Meadows Community College

I really like Jeffrey's training style of interactivity. He is not in front of the class lecturing you. He really gets you involved in the process. I find I learn more that way so I can then take back and it practice in my business.

Spencer Bitz
Realtor / Sierra Nevada Properties

Jeffrey distinguishes himself with the ability to energize a group of people. Jeffrey's leadership training programs are an asset to any organization or group. He is attentive to detail and has a remarkable way of creating fun at the same.

Buzz Harris
President / WBH Enterprises

Breakthrough Training was absolutely amazing; I participated in the Leadership Series. Jeffrey made sure that each person was involved, and the exercises we did definitely displayed what each of our strengths and weaknesses were as leaders. It also opened our eyes to communicate better with different styles of communicators.

Ashlee Edgar
Warehouse Supervisor / Small Mine Development

I was skeptical. I’ve done leadership classes in the past. I thought if you’ve been to one you’ve been to them all. I could not have been more wrong. It was an incredible experience.

JJ Perino
Project Estimator / West Coast Contractors

Jeff was great at giving actionable items to improve your communication and leadership skills, many of which I have been able to implement on a daily basis in my personal and professional life. I could not recommend Breakthrough Training enough!

Kristin Boreggo
Pre-Construction Manager / Core Construction

I gained better communication skills and new leadership tools. I really learned how good communication is, not just in my professional life but in my personal life as well.

Allison Swanson
Account Executive / Fox 11 Reno

I just finished a very great training program lead by Jeffery. It was an amazing two days. Each aspect was engaging and meaningful, with takeaways that I am able to utilize every day. It was definitely time well spent.

Raechelle Bogdon
Controller / McEwin Mining

I thought is was going to be like a college course. It wasn't anything like that. It was more about getting involved in teamwork with 25 other people. It really helped me to apply that to both inside and outside of work.

Justin Barnes
Technician / NV Energy

I never really knew about skills for building your team and effective communications. This class has done an excellent job while doing it in a fun environment, not only sitting in a class, but getting you involved.

Aaron Hale
Project Manager / C.C. Meyers

It helped to hone leadership skills and communication styles. The program creates a safe environment to challenge fears in a fun way. It gave me the opportunity to break through fears and identify strengths.

Karina Johnson
Account Executive / Chase International

Jeffrey puts together a wonderful Leadership program. It assisted me in the further growth of my own career. I would recommend his programs to anybody that is looking to grow in their life and career.

Rick Abend
Branch Manager / Mutual of Omaha Bank

It has helped me in my business because I am making better decisions and it has improved my communications with customers. I really feel the course has helped me.

Raquel Martinez
Owner / Total Beauty Salon

Jeff’s leadership course was one of my top courses I have taken to date. As an eager and developing manager, it was the perfect class for me to hone my skills and techniques at the start of my career. He does a wonderful job to make sure that you put in everything you have to ensure that you walk away with the feeling that you can be better at anything you do.

Red Gayita
Director / Swinerton

I recently participated in a session Jeff facilitated for a large group of high-growth entrepreneurs. Jeff's style was engaging, fast-paced, thoughtful and yielded terrific discussions on the disciplines and critical steps associated with successful leadership.

Sue Hesse
CEO / Hesse Partners

Jeffrey's style of teaching is through example, engaging, out of your chair and interactive. He pushes you beyond your comfort zone and finds leadership connections through things that one normally wouldn't see them interlinking. I highly recommend him and Breakthrough Training!

Jeff Benjamin has dedicated his career to helping people and their businesses break-through limitations with basic and advanced leadership and personal training. I recommend Jeff Benjamin and Breakthrough Training if you or you company wants to reach the next level in personal and/or corporate development.

Kevin Walsh
Managing Partner / InSource Law

Jeff is very hands on in his training. He makes everyone feel comfortable and confident. He helps you to realize your strengths and weaknesses, then he helps you to work on them. I came away from the 2 day Breakthrough Training with so much insight on myself, how others view me and how I can implement changes that I will use every day in my business and in my personal development.

Shanna Maher
Realtor / Sierra Nevada Properties

In the first hour of leadership training it was obvious to me that Jeffrey has been doing this for a long time. He is very comfortable leading a group and knows how to handle any situation that might arise. I highly recommend Breakthrough Training for not only a leader of a company but to all the employees of a company.

Dave Sinclaire
CEO / CEI Alarm

The training is done in a very straightforward, no-nonsense manner. His methods really make you think about what you want to accomplish, setting the right goals, the importance of teamwork, and how you can have a more confident, successful role in life.

Ben Nelson
Associate / Marcus Millichap

Just completed Leadership Training with Jeffrey and it was amazing, not what I expected and very educational. Would recommend this to everyone, we are planning on sending all my employees through this plus other Supervisors. Looking forward to taking other Seminars\Training from him.

Dean Sizemore
Service Manager / Tholl Fence

I immediately started applying what I learned from the class in life with friends, family and coworkers. It's amazing to learn how to communicate with other people.

Steve Collins
Manager / Lepori Construction

Jeffrey Benjamin and Breakthrough Training are synonymous with great results. Jeffrey has the innate ability to push clients out of their normal thinking and help them excel towards their chosen goal. I have developed myself into an effective leader and use the skills I learned to help improve the company I work for.

Helyse Turner

Jeffrey recently lead our Management Team through a business development training course on teamwork, leadership, and communication. The feedback from my Management Team was extremely positive and will most definitely help strengthen our team dynamic.

Bill Brandt
Director of Customer Service / Henry Schein

Kellie Lee
Owner / Kids-N-Arts

By Day 1, Minute 10, the clarity, enthusiasm & sense of purpose that had eluded me for years, started to return. Jeffrey's ability to identify & lead people through mental roadblocks is amazing & his energy, integrity & set of core values permeates everything he does.

Kristi Finney
Office Manager / Aerion Corporation

I was really happy to learn about how to achieve goals. Having a guideline to get you there was extremely helpful. I now have it as part of my tool kit. It was great for me.

Jen Jocim
HR Generalist / Reliable Management Systems

Breakthrough offers a unique way to look at communication styles that we have been taught before, but gives us an opportunity to put it into action.

Training with Jeffrey was one of the best trainings I’ve participated in yet. Thank you so much for helping me and giving me the tools and techniques to become a better leader now and in the future.

The leadership series has been a great opportunity to return to the basics and really evaluate your interaction in group environments and to improve your communication as a leader.

Jeromy Manke

Jeffrey's Breakthrough Training was an amazing class. He had wonderful activities to teach us how to become better leaders and team members. He also took the time to talk to us one on one if we wanted to discuss a particular situation. I would highly recommend the class.

Anita Enders
Account Manager / LP Insurance

The best leadership course I have attended hands down. I’ve been in leadership throughout my career in different industries and have attended multiple different leadership courses. The difference here is that Jeff takes the time to make it engaging and inclusive. The activities and lessons are tied to real world examples and applicable to different scenarios. If you haven’t found your true inner leader, Jeff and his program will help you identify who that is and get the best out of you.

Jorge Garcia
Operations Manager / Petco

Because of the training and insight I have received from Jeff Benjamin, I have been able to enhance communication between my BIM team and the Designers/Engineers that we work alongside on a daily basis.
