Head First clients include the State of New Mexico, multiple insurance agents, Energetic Materials Testing and Research Center, New Mexico
Tech, Match NM, NM GRADS and Socorro Consolidated Schools. Brad has also worked with three different high school athletic teams during their state championship seasons: Goddard High School Baseball, Socorro High School Girls Golf and Socorro High School Boys Golf.
Brad used his unique approach to help us formulate the processes that have led to us accomplishing our goals as a program. He made us feel like he is a part of the team and did not dictate the direction he thought we should go, but instead, helped us evaluate where we were as a program and the steps we needed to take to accomplish our goals. If you follow his processes for success your team/organization will have clearer paths and goals and all stakeholders will have more buy-in and in turn be more accountable in their role to accomplish their goals. As a team leader it is very hard to have one eye on a microscope and the other on a telescope without having a top notch plan. Brad can give you that plan.
It is a pleasure to tell everyone about Brad Hofmann! Brad was the leadership course instructor for an innovative mentorship program for mentors of elementary students in New Mexico. When Brad joined the organization, he inherited a course syllabus that was largely irrelevant and esoteric to young adult mentors. Brad was able to adapt the course materials for the audience. This is a special skill that changed a dry, boring course into one that excited and motivated the mentors.
Brad was also able to change the course into a thriving, active experience. Even though the course was broadcast throughout the state and often used at sites from archived recordings, his format encouraged the mentors and site facilitators to participate in ways that made the course seem live. As a course facilitator myself, I welcomed his inclusion of excellent examples and opportunities for small group discussions. He made my job as course facilitator very rewarding.
I highly recommend Brad to anyone needing a dynamic, responsive leader for discussions large or small. He is a terrific trainer that will pinpoint the needs of the client and deliver highly engaging experiences!

As a participant in Brad's workshops, I've found them to be engaging, relevant, and widely applicable to different situations. Brad connects with the participants and models the content he is teaching. He is also able to distill a significant amount of material into key aspects to maximize what the audience takes away for the time invested in the workshop. For example, in short workshops, Brad will focus on the "how-to" and practical applications, while including just enough of the "why this is important" to motivate participants to apply what they are learning. Brad also has a excellent knack of introducing a concept and connecting it to a broad range of applications, so that a single tool is relevant in many scenarios. I highly recommend Brad Hofmann as a resource in mentoring and leadership training.

I had heard some great things about Brad's seminars from fellow coaches and thought I would give it a try. Since golf is 90% mental, I wanted to find a program that would help my team think more positively during a round and when things went wrong. Mr. Hofmann fulfilled the greatness aspect and went beyond! My team was mesmerized for an hour and a half (and with teenage girls that is tough to do)! His persuasive approach was just what the team needed. He was able to connect with my players quickly and get them to think positively about their mental side of the game. Throughout the season, I referred to several of the topics that were covered in the seminar. I can absolutely link our success to Mr. Hofmann’s presentation…thank you for helping my team feel more confident in their abilities to succeed.
