Testimonials

The input you gave me was needed now more than when you gave it which made it a more valuable gift with time, just like diamonds!  The most valuable input was your observations of my team, urging me to take action accordingly and keeping me focused on the people aspect of the job instead of the ‘busy work’.

There are many ‘motivators’ in the marketplace. I believe, however, that Misti Burmeister has a unique persona and critical insight into the human psyche that allows her to connect deeply with people who want to lead and envision something better for themselves. Misti brings aspirations into reach and does it with a compelling energy. Most importantly, she is a woman who has walked the talk and, therefore, has a legitimacy that serves as the foundation of her concepts.

Misti Burmeister not only shared personal stories to enhance her topic, she tapped into the audience and engaged them in a conversation. Misti was a joy to listen to. She used humor and real life situations to heighten her presentation. I’m looking forward to hiring her again.

…whereas most consultants consider improved organizational and personal productivity to be the effective stopping point, it is just the foundation upon which Misti then engages in some very timely coaching with a lucky few volunteers, and does so in a way that enables all of the audience to profit.

Her method equips all of the audience with the ability to continue their growth beyond just the set of techniques they may acquire during the session. Using very clear facts and sharing examples and stories that make it easy to follow her reasoning, she leads everyone to a collective understanding of how different generations and circumstances still have root similarities in terms of desired outcome. She then provides practical applications and examples to help the audience see how they might say things differently, respond differently, encourage their subordinates to grow and improve their abilities, or enhance their own ability to work with a variety of bosses and colleagues whose perspectives may be different.

She develops wonderful rapport with her audience and will have them actively engaged in the learning process within minutes. And she has a remarkable gift of profound insight into what truly motivates a client or audience member.

Misti has an incredibly powerful and engaging way of connecting with audiences (across generations) and helping them see the power of “Bridging The Generational Gap”. Using stories to leverage her own experiences as well as those of her clients, she helps people see beyond their own assumptions and beliefs to a place of possibility and a promise of potential and success. Best of all, Misti brings her message along with inspiration and fun!

You certainly gave me plenty of new information regarding ways to handle generational differences, but, more importantly, have set me in the direction of focusing more on generational similarities!

CFO, ATPCO


Misti captures the challenges and opportunities associated with working across generations and helped our strategic leaders understand that diversity is about more than traditional measures such as sex and race. And, she creates understanding that diversity is not just about “fairness” but is an essential enabler in value creation and organizational effectiveness. Her succinct responses to the audience`s questions made the issues clear-cut and unambiguous.

And, it was Misti`s passion that carried the day! She was both vulnerable and believable through her authenticity — reinforced by her apparent youth.

The feedback we received from a couple of our corporate sponsors was very nice. One sponsor representative said, `Misti presented very relevant information to the corporate audience and with great enthusiasm! I scanned the room several times and witness a big majority of the attendees looking directly at her while she was speaking. She had a high level of audience engagement and her history played right into what Social Settlement is all about.` Another sponsor said all of their employees thought the topic was timely and the message was good.

Misti`s groundbreaking strategies will cut through the fog of our often distorted theories and folklore about the hopelessness of intergenerational communication as she paints memorable pictures using authentic examples while speaking with such clarity that you will remember not only the illustrations, but also how to apply those models in other circumstances.

Misti has worked her magic over the past year with my life/work TEAM and was truly the catalyst, that “spark plug” – if you will – igniting an innovative revolution in our organization. Whether talking to executives or large audiences, she connects in a way few do. She is genuine in her approach which resonates with both Boomers and Millennials. You come away with a real sense of what needs to be done. This is Misti’s gift.

You were such an engaging facilitator at the Management Leadership Team Meeting I recently attended. Your `incredible energy and disarming manner` allowed many attending the session to open up and disclose their true feelings regarding how we could better improve relations with members outside our own age or race demographics…

A significant way that boomers can leave a lasting legacy within their organizations is to ensure that the incoming generation is full embraced, valued, engaged and utilized. Misti Burmeister provides the roadmap and the tools to make this happen!

Lori Addicks
Vice President of Learning and Development Post Properties, Inc.


Misti is as dedicated and passionate about her craft as one can be. The only thing that can possibly rival those traits is the amazing amount of energy she brings into a room. I`m constantly waiting for her to burst into flames! If your organization has a cut in its `line`, Misti is the Master Splicer you need.


I can’t tell you all the after-buzz I’ve heard today – reactions to your inspiring presentation last evening! You managed to cause each person in that room not only to be more aware of our individual thinking on the communications dilemma across generation, but to make a conscious decision to re-think where we were and move ahead with this new perspective.


Misti is truly an inspirational person who challenges me to be authentic. A true coach by all definitions, full of encouragement yet willing to call your bluff. She is challenging me to be better today than yesterday and make a difference in people’s lives.
