A Few Words from Our Clients

“Tim Thomas provided program creation, leadership development training, team development facilitation and personal coaching to 11 manufacturing and packaging sites of Cardinal Health and Catalent Pharma Solutions during the years 2006 through 2008. He was a key member and creator of the organizational development portion of lean six sigma breakthrough implementations which resulted in significant cost/cash savings and customer satisfaction improvement.”

Bill Bolding, Senior Vice President of Operational Excellence
Catalent Pharma Solutions

“As a new manager, the training provided by Tim has been priceless. The techniques he introduces, coupled with the enthusiasm he brings to the classroom have enabled me to grow in my role supervising individual employees. Additionally, the scheduling of his instruction allowed for me to not only absorb the material but immediately apply it and deliver feedback during subsequent open forums. This style is far different and more practical than management seminars providing instruction over just a few short days.”

“Tim Thomas provided program creation, leadership development training, team development facilitation and personal coaching to 11 manufacturing and packaging sites of Cardinal Health and Catalent Pharma Solutions during the years 2006 through 2008. He was a key member and creator of the organizational development portion of lean six sigma breakthrorugh implementations which resulted in significant cost/cash savings and customer satisfaction improvement. In addition, Tim provided change management and change resistance training to Master Black Belts and Black Belts at a unique two day conference for both companies.

Tim’s personal style and deep subject matter expertise were recognized by all who attended any of his sessions and were touched by his passion. The best indication of the value of his skills is his becoming part of the team and, as we implemented improvement initiatives, Tim’s training became an integral and expected part of the process. Because of the recognized value of Tim’s training, he provided further “train the trainer” coaching for internal resources to facilitate internal replication of the skills.”

“Tim has the great ability to motivate professionals to want to become better at what they do. His Leadership Development programs force executives to take a good look at themselves, the businesses they manage, and the relationships they have with their colleagues and employees. If you are looking for someone to assist in bringing your department, business unit, or company to new heights, I highly recommend Tim Thomas and his Makarios Consulting team.”

“The Complete Leader course (it is a life experience, really) should be a requirement for all new managers! Makarios provides participants with the communication tools necessary to deal with just about any situation (conflict, employee performance issues, and change management). I look at my leadership position in an entirely different light now that I am armed with the resources and information this course provided.”

Dan Johnson, VP of Sales

“Tim was hired to provide leadership coaching and executive development. I found his approach to be professional and educational. Goals we agreed to from the onset. We determined the areas for the biggest opportunities for growth. Ultimately, Tim armed me with the tools and the processes to allow me to be more self aware and to self coach. I felt that my output improved and my leadership skills were significantly improved after working with Tim. I would recommend him to anyone looking to drastically improve their leadership skills.”

Greg Lewis, VP of Sales

“The three day training program was definitely a success and I believe we accomplished our primary goals of increasing effectiveness in managing projects, improving communication with other team members and facilitating team meetings to maximize results. I greatly appreciated your work and effort to customize the program and tailor it to fit Lincoln’s specific needs. The flow of the program was well-structured and kept everyone’s attention throughout. I also believe your training methods that centered around small group work and your emphasis on the importance of all participants sharing their experiences is what drove the active group engagements and ultimately a successful program.”
