What People Say About Us...
“Kristi is a dynamic, engaging leader. She led our group in a one-day training on the Fundamentals of Leadership. Our group attendees ranged from seasoned leaders to some with limited experience. Kristi easily discussed theories and practices and gave real life experiences making the idea relatable to all who attended. She has a knack with reading a room and getting all involved.
Kristi is worth the time and energy to bring in an outside leader. You’ll be pleased with the results.”
“Kristi provided excellent and relevant leadership training that was beneficial to managers in all areas of our company. She was able to assist with HR fundamentals that helped me organize and prepare for future growth. Kristi is knowledgeable, willing to assist whenever needed and energetic! I highly recommend her and believe she is valuable to both personal HR development and as well company-wide HR needs.

“I am so thankful we found Kristi when we did! Our business was in a stage of exponential growth and we needed some pretty serious HR consulting, but weren’t able to hire someone in-house/full-time just yet. Kristi was the ultimate professional, super quick to respond, thorough in her guidance, and proactive in her solutions. She went above and beyond in each interaction, customizing her approach to fit the need of each issue we encountered and offering multiple suggestions for every challenge presented to her. Most impressive of all, her level of ownership was off the charts from the beginning; she acted as the “driver” on a few of our bigger projects, giving them the attention to detail they deserved and even keeping me on task when I fell behind. Our partnership with Kristi was invaluable, I can’t recommend her enough!”
“We used Kristi at Unit to train our field personnel on her Drug Free Workplace program. Not only was the program extremely well researched and developed, she also customized the training to meet the needs of our organization. With that said, perhaps her greatest asset was in the classroom. Kristi connected with our employees, held their attention, and communicated a very complicated and sensitive topic in an easy to understand way. But most importantly, she did that while creating a very professional, yet fun environment. I would not hesitate to use Kristi again on other topics as the need arises…she is that good at what she does and is an exemplary professional!”
“The People Perspective has become a vital part of our organization. As an owner of a small business (25 employees) my focus is growing our company. The People Perspective has not only taken HR off my desk but has created HR policies and procedures that conform to our workplace environment. Kristi keeps us updated with laws pertaining to employees' rights and makes sure our exposure is limited on any and all HR issues. I would highly recommend The People Perspective.”

“When I assumed the General Manager responsibilities with my new company, I quickly realized many of our leads and managers were not prepared to challenge and mentor our teams effectively. Kristi put together a full day of training which included an overview covering the basics of leadership and the legal liabilities of leading. The sessions were highly interactive, thought-provoking with conversations continuing well after the training day. Kristi is a gifted trainer drawing on a wealth of practical experience and a valuable partner for small companies like ours.”

“Since early 2019, Kristi Spaethe has been an effective facilitator for my organization’s quarterly strategic planning sessions. Kristi is a highly respected HR professional and a trusted advisor to our company’s leadership. Kristi is invested in our success as an organization, and she demonstrates earnest understanding and care while fulfilling her responsibilities as a facilitator. I highly recommend Kristi as a leader in HR consulting and for all your company’s leadership coaching needs. ”
"While we have always been proud to maintain an up to date employee policy handbook, COVID-19 forced us to realize that we had gaps. After one simple message and discussion with The People Perspective, we had a comprehensive policy for COVID-19 that helped our employees and leadership team have a clear and concise set of instructions. With so many things being unknown it was reassuring to know we could trust the policy created for us, and it freed up leadership to focus on the many tasks at hand. They have been a trusted partner for us during many trials, and we love working with them."

“Our training has been monumental to the development and success of our leadership team. Kristi creates an interactive environment so that everyone feels comfortable engaging and growing. We could not be more happy to recommend and encourage others to invest in the growth of their team by utilizing The People Perspective!”

"We loved having Kristi here to train our employees on professionalism and harassment. She kept their attention with her direct approach. Her presentation was sprinkled with humor and real life examples that kept our blue collar workers engaged. I felt as though she told my employees everything they needed to hear from me, but with the added benefit of credibility from an outside source. On top of all of that, the team was flexible in setting up the training and meeting our unique needs with multiple locations and round the clock operations. We will definitely use The People Perspective again to outsource employee training."

"Kristi and her team have become an invaluable and trusted part of our team. They are genuine, resourceful, respectful of time, and a never ending source of sanity in the crazy HR world. We are not a traditional office environment and they adapted to our needs quickly and have helped us in so many ways! I am quite convinced that Kristi hides a cape somewhere because she has rescued us from several challenging situations! The best part is she teaches you along the way and provides the tools to better handle the HR challenges we all face."
