Testimonials For Adame & Associates

  • I never would have imagined Richard taking the time to mentor me in Sales, Leadership and Management. And providing the tools necessary to differentiate between the true issues at hand versus static, and creative methods to resolve them. Thank you.

    Stewart Reichardt Loan Officer Bank of The West N. California
  • I recall an event at which Richard spoke to the N. California Sales Management team for Bank of America. The topic was, "How to build trust and establish credibility with Realtors, while attending Open Houses". He demonstrated how a single loan product coupled with strong sales skills could be used to increase sales productivity. Kudos to Richard

    C. George Bender Former SVP, Bank of America Mortgage
  • As my coach and mentor he taught me the basics of sales communication and presentation skills. He showed me how to differentiate myself from the competition by focusing on the prospects needs rather than my products or services. Through hard work and utilizing the skills Richard taught me I an now considered a top producer in the mortgage business

    Richard Ozuna Mortgage Loan Officer, CHASE Mortgage
  • "When I moved on to my next loan officer job I took with me the experience and can-do attitude that Richard helped me to develop. It is rare in our industry to find someone that has the combination of sales skills, presentation skills, and management skills that Richard possesses. I highly recommend Richard as a Speaker in all of these areas"!

  • The Work of Leaders

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders® lays out a clear path for helping leaders at all levels make the connection between their DiSC® style and leadership. Bringing together best practices from 300 experts in over 150 organizations, the important work of the most prominent scholars, and over four years of additional research and development, this all-inclusive classroom and online program approaches leadership as a one-to-many relationship (as opposed to the one-to-one relationship explored in Everything DiSC Management). With one unified model of leadership—vision, alignment, and execution—it focuses on helping leaders understand their own leadership styles and how their tendencies influence their effectiveness in specific leadership situations.

  • Leverage The Power of Productive Conflict in The Workplace

    Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict helps participants improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors. Rather than focus on a step-by-step process for conflict resolution, Everything DiSC Productive Conflict provides participants with techniques to curb destructive behaviors and effectively respond to conflict situations. The program features an exploration of DiSC® in a conflict context, provides an opportunity for participants to explore their destructive conflict responses, and offers them a method for making more productive choices in their response to conflict.

  • Close More Sales!

    Everything DiSC® Sales puts the power of the dynamic Everything DiSC model into the hands of salespeople and provides a dynamic tool for learning how to create customer-centric interactions that delivered improved results.
