Testimonials for Wendy Sellers, The HR Lady

We have been a client of Wendy Sellers for several years and will remain one for many more. Her wealth of expertise and knowledge in the HR industry has played a significant role in the growth of our company in establishing a culture we love, with a focus on the wellness and happiness of our staff. Her top priority for her clients is their success and she truly becomes a member of your leadership team. We appreciate that she educates us on best practices & explains all of our options so we can make educated decisions instead of telling us what to do. 

My employees were not communicating well with each other and things got to a crisis point where two wanted to quit. I had met Wendy years ago and was impressed. I called her for HR advice, she met with my staff, had several management training sessions (on DiSC personality styles). We got all the issues on the table, had fun, and improved communication. My staff is happy, morale is high, and we are finally working as a team, which in turn makes me and my patients happy. I highly recommend her.

Thank you for the informative classes. I found your teaching style engaging and effective. I look forward to reviewing all of the resources you have given us,  and to continuing to learn from you. I learned so much from the course and from the other interactions with the other attendees.

On the topic of human behavior & communication, Suck it up Buttercup nails it! Wendy points out the most commonly overlooked flaws people make. She gives examples I know I was able to relate to (many were similar to experiences I’ve had) and points out where most mistakes were made. She also gives great examples of how interactions should have gone to get better results. -Chris W

Wendy helped redefine our interview/hiring process, employee review & evaluation process, organized benefit committees, corporate HR events, and was open and honest in all our discussions and interactions. Through our time together, we only had one major employee issue that I can recall. She handled the situation with extreme professionalism and ensured the company followed the correct procedures to manage the company’s risk, while serving the employees’ rights.

Wendy brings a level of passion and professionalism that companies seek out and enjoy working with. She’s top notch with her work ethic and was a pleasure to work with for many years.

Her book has opened my eyes in more ways than one. After receiving her book only weeks ago, I have already implemented ways to become a better leader. I have learned to drop my guard aka “pride” allowing my employees to be more open and willing to share. I have also increased my clientele tremendously with some of the tools she has shared. Wendy, I, my team and clients truly thank you!  Aaron A

The leadership concepts in the book “Suck It Up, Buttercup” really resonated with me as a fast-paced, direct leader myself. The manner in which Wendy Sellers delivers these leadership concepts is so simple that I had to kick myself for not making these realizations before. I bought a copy for each of my managers to read and discuss. 

Our overall company-wide productivity has already increased. – Vincent E

This manager training will help me become a better leader by motivating employees, setting schedules for jobs in production, and giving them a timeline to complete each task. I have already changed my approach and processes and see better employee productivity results. – Line Lead, Manufacturing

This course taught me how to reframe conflict and not to see a conflicting situation in a negative light but to step back and reframe the situation in order to try to understand the situation from the other’s perspective. – Nursing Home Supervisor

The Professionalism, Trust, and Respect course was just what we needed. With everything going on in our country and across the globe, some conversations were getting a little too heated and disruptive. Now we use this course as a reminder to keep conversations professional and respectful so we can listen to others opinions (even when the opposite of ours) and retain trust. – Law Firm

I now realize I am often an enforcer and rarely a coach, so my takeaway is to practice being a coach. – Department Manager & Engineer
