BG has been working with Security Alarm for several years in an advisory / coaching capacity. He been a great asset as he has helped us in the areas of organizational health, board structure, management team structure and other areas of need.

I have had the pleasure of knowing BG for more than 10 years, and mentoring / coaching with him for the past three. His background and experience as a military officer and business executive enable him to provide a perspective that combines tactical efficiency, strategic planning, and biblical principles. During my time working with BG, his unique insight has helped me not only to handle the present complexities of my role, but to also think beyond my immediate focus in a way that prepares me for future challenges. He has helped me to achieve more than I thought possible, in less time that I believed reasonable, to achieve results that I thought unattainable. Bottom line…he’s a pretty good executive coach.
I cannot give a higher recommendation to BG. He is the consummate professional; passionate, motivated, and goal oriented with a healthy balance of compassion, empathy, and social awareness.

I have had the pleasure of working with BG in several areas throughout the years. I first met BG as my professor during my MBA program at Bethel College. There he inspired me to lead, coach and mentor others. He taught that leadership was more than managing and for me to find my way, to be open to learning from others. Leadership meant to be involved, to show your heart, to listen and actively participate in the vision. He showed and taught me the meaning of being a Servant Leader. As an HR professional I have had the pleasure of seeking his guidance in coaching and developing through his proven success as a mentor, coach, and leader at Life Action Ministries and Coachwell. I feel privileged to know and work with BG in all areas of my walk in my career whether he’s guiding myself or helping me lead my teams. He is an amazing asset and a blessing to have.

“I’ve known BG for several years and consider him to be the type of friend everyone needs . He has been coaching me for the past few months and he provides exactly what I need. In each session, BG lifts me up in an authentic manner and motivates me to be the best I can be. He strengthens my faith, talks through my concerns and fears, encourages me to do my best and to stretch myself, and provides wise counsel.
His wide range of experience and knowledge is invaluable. I highly recommend BG.”

Mr. Allen recently spoke to our Senior Leadership Team on the topics of Corporate Culture and Organizational Change. He did an outstanding job challenging our group and making us think deeper about these subjects. We are undergoing several big initiatives and his message was very timely. Mr. Allen was well prepared and is very knowledgeable on these topics. He obviously keeps up with a lot of reading in these areas and it was very helpful to our group for him to share these book tiles and authors. This helps all of us see a wider view of the issues.

I have known BG Allen since 2007 where I first met him as an Adjunct Professor of Management in my MBA program. BG consistently gave powerful instruction on leadership, management and the character of servant leaders. BG gave me the ‘want to’ for influential and impactful leadership. Moreover, BG cared about my classmates and me – our relationship built on truth and trust.
I continue to watch the positive leadership impact BG makes through his on-line presence. I track his growing list of clients served, organizations changed, and players developed into healthy and productive leadership teams. Based on my personal experience, I would heartily recommend BG to serve in training and coaching role because of his passion to teach, his ability to communicate effectively, his organizational expertise, his business knowledge, and his practical experience

“B.G. Allen knows organization. But more than that he knows organization with a distinctly servant’s heart. I’ve watched him put his expertise into practice and have been personally blessed with the fruit of his ability. The really good part is that he knows how to communicate his knowledge to others in a way that will enhance them as individuals and leaders. B.G. models with his life what he teaches so well.”
“I know of very few men who carry the unique balance of deep spirituality, comprehensive ministry understanding, and tremendous organizational expertise. B.G. Allen has all of this—and more. His ministry experience and personal development has equipped him to help us all. If you are looking for a servant/leader who will dramatically help you with the needs in your organization or ministry, I highly recommend this competent, godly leader.”
“I had the honor and privilege of working for BG in the early years of my professional career. Recently I took a leadership class based on John Maxwell’s principles. We were first asked for a list of people who most influenced you as a leader, BG was on my list. Through every chapter and lesson I could always point to him as a person that exhibited those special qualities Maxwell referred to. BG provided me with a solid foundation for many of the principles I live by today. From him I learned about integrity both in the workplace and at home. He shared many leadership qualities and lessons that, over the years, have helped forge my success. He is a kind and giving person who gives far more than he ever receives here.”
