“I am very impressed with BETTER. It targets all the aspects of being a leader and how to maintain the position. Having spent a long career in the corporate world, I was amazed to find how comprehensive Tim’s presentation is, addressing a number of subjects that are often not even on executives’ radar screens. BETTER presents clear insights on subjects important for any leader, from the front-line manager to the CEO, and explains how to apply the principles to everyday work and life.”

─ R. J. Richards, National Director of Engineering (retired)



“Having worked with Tim twice in the past 8 years, I continue to be amazed at how applicable his coaching has been throughout. The basic principles he introduces have been instrumental in my ability to navigate through many difficult situations, and his insight into human behavior has helped me understand what motivates others and drives my own behaviors. Tim’s ability to apply these principles in actual examples easily synthesizes the message for anyone, regardless of their position or years of experience as a manager or leader. His clear, concise, yet thoughtful style facilitates both individual coaching and large groups. In short, Tim drills down to the root of who and what you are, then gives you applicable tools to use as you lead others to where they need to go.”

“Over the years I have read dozens of leadership books and taken part in several leadership development programs. While I make it a point to always take something away from these investments, Tim’s coaching went past the typical teaching of ‘principles’ and gave me insight into some of my behaviors. This better understanding helped me become a stronger leader. Tim’s coaching is practical and full of application. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to become a better leader.”

“Tim has the unique ability to break down complex ideas and problems, and provide solid, easy-to-understand solutions ─ so easy to understand that you will think, ‘Why didn’t I see this before?’ I’ve known Tim for more than thirty-five years, and I’ve benefitted greatly from him as a mentor and friend. He is a gifted communicator, teacher, and coach. If you want real help, let Tim come alongside you and help you see the clear path ahead.”

─ Bob Christopher

Author, Simple Gospel, Simply Grace



“‘My favorite thing is to help people.’ This is what Tim said in 2013 when he announced he was leaving the company in which we both worked to pursue his vision independently. He changed my life, and not only helped me become a leader, but also a better person. How many times has someone lifted you from doubt and negativity and taught you to believe in yourself, given you confidence and faith in your own future? To coach and to have such a profound impact on individuals, you need more than knowledge; you need heart.”

─ Joanna Diehl, Manager (a major airline)



“Working with Tim over the last several years, learning and applying the fundamentals and disciplines found in the pages of this book, I’ve seen it work. Nothing can cripple an organization quite like a leadership void. Nothing can strengthen and accelerate a team’s potential quite like quality, effective leadership. Study the principles in BETTER and you will find a common language and methodology for identifying and developing the leader within you and your organization.”

─ Steve Weatherford, Director of Finance and Administration
