My Professional Story
After 27 years in the corporate world, it was time for me to turn my diversity of professional experience and life lessons into a consulting business. Over the past 3 years I have been blessed to apply my Sales Growth methods with a diverse range of talent in software, manufacturing and distribution. My Executive Coaching practice has been just as rewarding across an even more diverse range of industries and types of leaders.
My Personal Story
I am a happy husband and father of 3 who is passionate about my family and all of our outdoor adventures! Although I grew up enjoying all the seasons of Wisconsin, I didn't learn to ice skate or slalom waterski until after I turned forty ... Just to keep up with my kids! Faith, Family, Fitness & Fun are my foundations and I dedicate time to each of them every day.
What people say about me
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tim as my executive coach for the past two years. Tim’s background, strategic thinking and ability to help me view situations through a different lens has been instrumental in my growth as an executive and as a person. Throughout the two years I have had Tim as my coach, he has pushed me out of my comfort zone while providing the support I needed. He is a great coach and friend and I would recommend him to everyone!"
Kathryn Rogalski, Vice President of Learning, NWTC
My team worked with Tim on developing new sales processes and on how best to leverage Salesforce.com to coach sales. His knowledge in both areas is strong and the engagement exceeded our expectations. Tim also added a dimension as he ran the work teams - he understands how to manage commercial staff members. The way he interacted with the teams helped get results faster. We will use Tim again if the need arises and I highly recommend any Sales, Marketing or Business leaders engage with him."
Nino Granatiero,Vice President / General Manager, Knape & Vogt
"As a 30 year sales veteran myself - I really thought I knew it all when it came to customer interface - that is , until the day Tim joined me on a joint call at a major end user. Tim's ability to understand and uncover the true customer needs behind the surface was astounding. The type of non-typical and pointed questions Tim asks clients about their current state vs desired state brings about an outpouring of honest revealing answers from clients. Tim does not overfocus on product - he has true passion for customers key business initiatives and how a client can be assured to sustain their desired state long after a business partnership begins with us. Tim is calm, direct and passionate - customers trust him, listen closely to him, and speak openly with him. His trusted business advisor approach creates a team atmosphere that leads to the ultimate in solution selling results."

"Tim Bandt is the kind of business leader that actually plays chess while everyone else is playing checkers. His rare blend of Sales, Service and Marketing experience gives him a unique perspective on how to differentiate yourself in the marketplace and build long-term relationships with customers. In my time working for Tim, he not only implemented and trained our sales team on his proprietary Trusted Advisor methodology of selling, but facilitated the creation of value-adding tools that enhanced how we engaged with customers in a collaborative environment. I consider it my good fortune that I had the opportunity to work with Tim as early as I did in my career."
