• “Changing the way we went about things to improve results and improve the customer experience.”
  •  “We had tried a lot of different programs.  What I like most about The Achieve Institute is they ask the questions to get you to the answer, instead of just giving you the answer.”
  •  “A simple tool to get the most out of people.”
  •  “Very foundational.  Makes everything else you do move faster.”
  •  “The value of The Achieve System increases the more you do it.”
  •  “Keep focused on the disciplines of The Achieve System and it works.”
  •  “The Achieve System is a simple tool that gives you the ability to reframe situations and challenges.”
  • “Instead of getting stuck, The Achieve System helps you break through the noise.”
  •  “You think that other people are the problem in situations, but The Achieve System forces you to lookintrospectively at your own approach – how did you impact the result?”
  •  “We had so many metrics and focused only on the metrics.”  After Achieve, “we focus on fewer metrics and more importantly, we now focus on the behaviors that effect and drive these metrics rather than on the metrics themselves.  We now focus on the behaviors that lead to the results.”
  •  “One of our challenges as a center in hitting our AHT target. We used Achieve to breakdown old mental barriers and soon we had 90% or our center was hitting the AHT target, without compromising our other metrics. Achieve changes behaviors by helping leaders change mindset.”

  • “The team has helped drive excellent business results over the last two years such as initiatives that helped drive a 2 ppt reduction in our enterprise call in rate, and new projects that provide troubleshooting tools on line, and our vision of who our team is and what we are supposed to deliver has been a material part of our success there.”
