WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING

"I am a very confident investigator and trainer because I believe that I have been “armed” with the best information there is on these topics. The definitions are very clear and the examples are easy to relate to. There is nothing left to wonder about after attending a McGrath training and the Manual has all of the answers to the questions that may come about. The staff is friendly, courteous and prompt. My McGrath Manuals are my “Bibles” for investigation and training. When it comes to Sexual Harassment and Bullying investigations and training, I am McGrath.”

Cliffie James, Employee Relations Specialist for Ysleta Independent School District, El Paso, Texas

“Throughout all the years we’ve been doing training to improve the quality of performance, Mary Jo McGrath’s SUCCEED training is by far the best we have ever done. I can honestly say it is the only staff training and development that has resulted in a systemic change in how we supervise and evaluate employee performance. The quality of this program is unsurpassed. We initially implemented it twelve years ago, and in each succeeding year, our principals have found it increasingly useful.”

Dr. Glen Smartschan, Superintendent for Mt. Lebanon School District, Mt. Lebanon, PA

 

TESTIMONIALS

“The most significant result I’ve observed is a focus on optimizing the potential of the people we already have. I believe that most administrators now have the idea they are working to create productive relationships with those they supervise in order to effect change. It is fairly challenging to communicate in ways that foster growth among ourselves and others. I believe that SUCCEED provides the principles and tools that make it much more possible.”

Carole Lee, PhD

Director of Assessment and Evaluation, Fontana Unified School District, Fontana, CA

“The implementation of the SUCCEED System has promoted a culture of accountability for our entire School District. Our leaders are more direct and factual in communication both verbally and in writing. Principals are improving teacher and employee performance and acknowledging when the job is well done. This system is now in the fabric of our daily practices and has been a major contributing factor in maintaining our reputation for high academic results. It has been a systemic, on-going change, not a one-stop staff development training. Some days I personally use the tool twenty times or more — for everything!”

Kathie Crume
Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources
Academy School District Twenty
Colorado Springs, CO

What the SUCCEED System provides is a basis for communication that can be used in any situation. It’s something that the Teacher Consultant can go through, not just to structure written communication but also verbal communication. It is objective rather than subjective which, of course, people perceive as more fair. It takes out the emotional element, allowing you to be nonjudgmental and factor in the bigger picture. A person doesn’t feel shredded because you’re always including ‘here is how we’re going to fix it. This is fixable. No more vague saying, ‘You need to do better.’ My reaction after the first time I used it was: ‘Whoa! This stuff’s pretty powerful!'”
