What People Say – WorldLegacy Corporate
I engaged Rob and Wes to facilitate a management change at Anatech LTD. I have let go of an authoritarian, top down model of operating and I am creating a company based on teamwork. I see that building these businesses takes people committed to the effort who are working together as a team, and who are responsible for their results. WorldLegacy is all about people and creating team. People at Anatech are now communicating as never before. We are taking ourselves on in creating responsibility, full engagement in the process with intention to create spectacular results. The team is identifying and owning our individual responsibilities and how we relate as a team. As such, we have developed and committed to Anatech’s vision, our goals, our strategies, and our actions to have them happen. People are responsible for our customers, our relationships with them, how we are perceived by them, our profitability, and our determination to move forward as a company to create value for our stakeholders. Rob and Wes’s contribution of the process itself and facilitation of the process makes all this possible. Specifically, after a little over a month working with them, October revenues are up 61% year over year; profits are 22.2% instead of negative; and we’re looking forward to creating the highest revenues and profits we’ve achieved in 26 years.

Saturday morning’s session was led by Dr. Lori Todd. A professor at UNC and the founding partner of WorldLegacy, Dr. Todd prompted students to learn about their own leadership styles and taught the students in attendance how to communicate effectively with different types of leaders. Through role playing and brainstorming, students learned how others “hear” their messages and how they could, in turn, be more responsive to different types of messaging. John Spencer, director of student activities, said, “Prior to the weekend, several students relayed their skepticism about listening to professional speakers. However, at the close of the retreat on Saturday, most of those same students came up to me to express their appreciation for the opportunity to learn about their own leadership styles and how they can carry that message to their clubs’ constituents.”
