What They’re Saying

I have worked directly with Marilou for almost four years and I cannot give her enough praises for what she has brought to our program.

When I first met Marilou, we had scheduled her to kick off our first retreat by introducing the disc evaluation results with our class and help lay a foundation of learning that we could build on during the remaining of the retreats. The response to Marilou and her program was so great that the next year, and each year following, we have expanded Marilou’s involvement with the class to the first two retreats and with Zoom calls throughout the year with the class.

Marilou receives the highest marks from our class surveys and is by far each class’s favorite speaker. Whether the needs of your program require a one-time speaker or a thread to weave the program together, I could not recommend Marilou Butcher Roth with more enthusiasm. She’s the best!

CLARITY – Marilou Butcher-Roth has been remarkable in working with myself and our leadership to clearly define roles, objectives and expectations in a space where none of this existed before.

Her facilitation style and ability to work with varied styles and personalities make her an invaluable asset to me as CEO in trying to put together a cohesive team dynamic.

Scott R. Williams, Chief Executive Officer at Ohio Realtors

Yesterday I received a lead and, because of your class the day before, I knew exactly what to do! So naturally, just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for your direction. I felt way more confident in what I was doing and saying and was even able to set an in-home appointment for this weekend 🙂

I’m looking forward to your classes in the future!

I have participated in Marilou’s association CE class, brokerage CE classes, leadership academy sessions, as well as a company leadership workshop. The content she brought is impactful, relevant and pushes you to the next level. The way in which Marilou facilities the class is incredible. She understands her audience and is able to keep them engaged, learning and participating. Marilou is an expert, she’s walked the walk and talked the talk. She knows what she’s doing and is so graciously sharing with others. This rippling effect has made our industry better, and has certainly changed my life and my business for the better.

As we developed the outline of sessions and presenters for NOR’s Leadership Academy we knew from past experience we wanted Marilou to be part of our program. Marilou and her session is instrumental in setting the tone for the entire year. Not only does she guide participants in a personal exploration of their leadership strengths, she helps the participants bond as a class.

Marilou and her session is always highly ranked!

Thanks again for the amazing session you put on for our Sales team. It was a pleasure to work with you to bring this session to life. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the session from participants. After putting together the results from the evaluation forms, the numbers confirm it was a valuable and well-received session. Participants rated their overall satisfaction with the course as a 5 out of 5 with your expertise demonstrated really resonating.

Marilou was invaluable in helping our newly formed External Affairs team – a merger of public policy and communications staffs – navigate the unknown, build relationships, better appreciate our individual uniqueness and chart a path for long-term success. She displayed special talent throughout our session — putting everyone at ease while we explored our individual and collective roles in helping to move the Association forward.

Marilou has helped me see that I have always had the tools I need to lead and succeed. I just needed to be aware of how to access them and apply them. What it has meant to me is a enhanced awareness of every interaction I have with coworkers, friends and loved ones. I feel a hightened vision of clarity all around me, and there is not a single relationship that hasn’t been effected positively by my work with Marilou

You can always expect the best when working with Marilou! She has facilitated sessions for our Leadership Academy and was so popular, the attendees requested I find a way to have her lead additional sessions. She connects with her audience on a personal level and is a wonderful mirror as she helps to peel back the layers needed for deeper discovery.

In the short three years that I have worked with Marilou, I have sharpened the focus of my career to effortlessly navigate working with many different volunteer leadership styles year-over-year. Marilou has coached me through difficult conversations, sticky situations, and complex association operations that require sensitive attention. In learning more about myself, traits, and characteristics, I am able to achieve alignment with my volunteer leaders of the organization more quickly.

Jessica M. Hickok, Chief Executive Officer at Oklahoma Association of REALTORS®

My coaching with Marilou began four years ago. She has shared many tools and techniques to help me tackle tasks and issues confidently. Conflicts are now opportunities to clarify. Checking in with my feelings and reactions help me make better decisions. Our work that has been the most valuable to me is the building of our staff and leadership teams. Her guidance has helped me put systems into place that ensure we regularly communicate, offer meaningful feedback, build trust and grow as leaders. Simply put, my coaching with Marilou is empowering!
