High Praise for KeenAlignment Strategic Talent Solutions: Rave Reviews for Magi Graziano

Speaking and Training Testimonials

Margaret was a true inspiration to the ENTIRE audience, I am getting emails left & right about her and her message! I took away so much from her speech & will attempt to integrate it in my everyday activities! The part that stuck with me the most was her awareness activity, the circle. It showed me how much time I spend in the negative & need to move more of my day into the positive! Understanding that it is not an overnight switch, but it gave me the push I needed to make the change, for me as an individual. I know a ton of Admins were requesting we bring her back for a full session (YAY!)

Haley Tomlinson, Conference Events Rep at Northrop Grumman

Comments from various attendees at recent National After Sales Meeting:

Great speaker!

High Energy, Informative and eye opening!

If I could rate higher than a five I would, probably the best breakout session of any meeting I have been too!

Magi was fantastic. Made me think more about my own performance. Excellent thought-provoking seminar!

I recently attended Margaret’s CERS certification and Talent Strategy 3.0 class in Las Vegas. It was, by far, the best training class I’ve attended. Margaret’s passion makes her a dynamic speaker. Her forward thinking insight into talent acquisition and retention speaks to her immense knowledge and understanding of the real issues facing today’s employers. Her expertise and wisdom on how to implement these philosophies to add to your offerings, has proved invaluable. I highly recommend Keen Alignment and Margaret to anyone wanting to be on the leading edge of the staffing and recruiting industry.

Margaret’s passion for her profession is only second to her knowledge of employee behavior. If a company or group was looking for a speaker who can captivate their audience on employment behavior practices, then Margaret would surely be the one.

I have had Margaret speak to my Vistage groups about the War for Talent and she shared excellent ideas about what’s going on in the economy and the recruiting space. Additionally, I have referred Margaret to my clients to help them with recruiting and background checks. All reports have been superlative.

We engaged the KeenHire, a KeenAlignment company, team to help us with a recruitment and selection need we had. Margo and her team helped us identify the traits we were looking for in our Sales and Operational personnel. We used their assessment tools to profile our top performers so we understood the drivers for success. KeenHire, a KeenAlignment company, then built a recruitment and employment selection process that saved us time and money by only bringing forth the top candidates. The KeenAlignment team conduced screening, interviewing, behavioral interviewing and assessments on each finalist and is then coaching our team on how to get the most out of our new people.

Simon Rickman, Consultant at Spring & Director/Trustee

My company has had occasion to use Margaret’s HR services for several years. She is thoroughly acquainted with resourcing and assessing staff personnel and executives. We have been very pleased with her work.

George Kriza, President, CEO MTC Performance

I’ve been in business for 26 years now and have recently engaged Margaret for a variety of tasks including work force optimization and overall strategic planning. The assessments done on staff were right on the money and provided a clear direction of how to manage moving forward. Her wealth of knowledge and insight into personnel and how to plan and execute a strategic plan for our business has become invaluable. Her fees will be paid for ten-fold as we grow the business to heights even I could not have imagined. If you’re considering Margaret in any aspect of your business, rest assured she’s the real deal and you don’t need to look any further.

Visionary, creator, catalyst: just a few words to describe Margaret Graziano! Margaret has a passion for people and a business style that adds high value to her business acumen.

Brian Anderson, Territory Sales Manager at Primus Electronics

Running a growing business is a difficult thing to do. One of the biggest challenges can be finding and attracting the right talented personnel to deliver great results. Margo Graziano and KeenHire, a KeenAlignment company, have been a tremendous asset to me and my company. In the past two years, we have worked together to staff 10 positions in my department alone—and dozens more company-wide. KeenAlignment is resourceful and efficient, and the candidates they have identified have quickly become some of the key drivers of our company’s success.

James Kennedy, Sr. VP, Sales and Marketing at Duncan Solutions

Margaret has been a tremendous resource for our business. She provided necessary support and guidance in hiring and screening our associates to ensure the right hires for our organization. We are now a more efficient and high performing organization, and she is helping us create the vision and culture we desire. If you thought you knew everything about how to run your company, think again. Margaret can bring you to the next level to create a more harmonious workforce, more efficiency and more profit. Whatever you invest in her consulting will result in a hefty return. You cannot afford to NOT hire her.

Margaret does a great job helping to understand what you are looking to accomplish around talent and role assessment. She puts together a comprehensive program that is very thorough and is also very detailed. The results are distinct and the participants in the program come away with a good view on how they stack up talent-wise based on the role definition. Management comes away with a description of what role they are hiring for and what they need to look for during the interview process. We found Margaret very helpful and great to work with.

Steve De Marco, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Xactly Corporation

Wi-Tronix had a light bulb moment when they knew that they needed a Corporate University, but didn’t know the right questions to ask or what the right answers would look like. Both the questions and the answer came with the help of Margaret Graziano and her team from Keen Alignment.

Margaret recommended that Wi-Tronix hold a week long Needs Assessment to find where the gaps were. Within a week it was discovered that what Wi-Tronix needed was a University AND a clearly defined Talent Strategy based on a surveyed group of employees, managers, and executives.

From that assessment, a 2-Day Content and Learning Development Event was custom created for Wi-Tronix in order to get answers to those questions. Margaret and her team were successful at extracting opinions, facts, and figures in order to choose the right software and a strategy to get training to employees quickly and efficiently.

While there is no such things as a single out of the box solution for every company, Margaret and her team were able to find out exactly what Wi-Tronix needed to continue to deliver 5-star service to their customers. Keen is now a facilitator to Wi-Tronix’s success through their assistance in authoring courses for the University and by sharing templates and tools for better understanding the company’s Talent.
