Standing Tall Seminar feedback

Hello Kent,
Thank you for sharing the code with us.  My education background is all from the College of Business.  It is very nice to get the information you shared in a business class format.  This class was the easiest I have taken because of the code's relationship to the business community.  
Once again,

Standing Tall Program

Thanks Kent for putting on such a great program.  Strong ethical values seem to be a thing of the past.  This program will help to get us all back on the right track.  Thank you.

Absolutely thought this was one of the better ethics classes I have attended.  Wish it would have been an 8 hour class instead of just the afternon.

Standing Tall!

I was so impressed with the leadership session yesterday.  Kent was a great speaker and interacted very well with the audience.  For me, one of the best parts was the focus around the state of Wyoming.    I'm proud we are traveling around the country to show others just what we are all about.  If help is needed with this project, I'm willing to get involved.  I was born and raised as an athlete in Wyoming but ventured across the region during college. I came back to Cheyenne because of Wyoming's Code of Ethics. The PowerPoint presentation was so engaging, it made everyone want to get out and do some good.  Great class and I was very privileged to attend.  

Thank you so much,
Bret Fanning

I am one of those people that would say I have a code of ethics, but I've never taken the time to define it by writing it down. It was a challenging exercise - it took me a couple of days to really do some self-reflection. I have my code posted in my office, which will be a source of accountability to me. I hope that people ask me about it so that I can share what I learned.

Going into the afternoon program, I didn't understand that it would challenge me to change some things in my life.  It would push me to "stand tall" in some areas that I struggle, and to be vigilant in living my beliefs and values.  Kent did a great job in moving the class through the concepts and encouraging us to be thoughtful in the hard work of writing and living "our code".  I am excited about making it work in my life, and in sharing it with others.

I Finished My Code!!!

Although it took quite some time, I am proud to say that I’ve finished my personal code and I cannot wait to carry out and uphold my code each and every day!!!


Thank you so much for continued inspiration and constant reminders of the good and beauty in this world of occasionally pandemonium!

This training presentation was outstanding in all aspects!  It challenged me in my everyday "thinking, behaviors, and beliefs" that I really stand by but just wasn't quite 'making the buck'.  This presentation gave solid tools in order to follow through with those things that we truly value and want to prioritize and allows us to see where we might improve and succeed!  I would highly recommend this to anyone!

I really enjoyed the program and it gave me an opportunity to revisit my own personal thoughts and ideas, update it and make it my code.  It was very kind of Kent to share his code, which shows that he truly lives and believes in what he is teaching.  Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Very good program.  Seems so sad that we have to even discuss these traits, in that society seems ignore them.  Great program!

Sorry for the delay in sending my feedback. I worked for the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Child Care Licensing for more than a dozen years and had the pleasure of monitoring the Colorado Boys Ranch Residential/Treatment Residential/Psychiatric Residential Child Care Facilities, and licensed their facility for independent living. I am thrilled that you have formed this collaboration and totally believe in the community of the code and cowboy ethics!! I appreciate the opportunity to attend the session.

Standing Tall Workshop

I want to thank Kent Noble for presenting his workshop to out Beef Leadership Class in Animal Science on April 6th and for allowing me to sit in on the session.  I was so impressed with the presentation that I want to visit about how we might expose our new first year students to the Code of the West Principles the first week after they arrive on campus and then maybe provide our graduating seniors a “refresher or review” just prior to their graduation as they exit into the “real world” of employment.  It is a very moving experience to see the impact on the “at risk youth” in Colorado.  Great job, Kent!

comments for blog

To whom it may concern,


I recently took the Standing Tall program at CWC and found it to be profoundly moving.  I immediately saw things that I could change in my business in personal life and took action.  Two ways I improved my business after the program was by simply changing the photos on my website and stepping away from an unethical partnership that was hard to walk away from.


It really made me think about what impacts I have on the people around me as a business woman and provokes me to do better.  I believe I am running a fine line by bringing pole dancing as a form of  fitness to a conservative state and community here in Wyoming.  However, I believe my services inspire woman to feel better about themselves and are conducted in a clean and ethic way.    


When I went through the program, I could clearly see how I could do a better job in terms of presenting myself in a more ethical way and improving customer service. 


I learned a lot, more than I initially bargained for.  I highly recommend it to anybody, even if  you think you’re doing things right.  We are all human and make mistakes, this program helps you get on and stay on track.


Thanks for bringing this program to life.

Standing Tall

I attended a Standing Tall in an Upside Down World presentation several months ago and have since encountered many occasions in my professional and personal life where, without everyone’s adherence to the some form of the Code, positive progress could not occur.

The program leaves you with a very strong appreciation for those that already live by the Code, and an even stronger desire to teach those who don’t.

Thank you for bringing nobility back to simply doing the right thing with strength and conviction.  

I am also proud to say that my daughter was honored to be a part of the Code of the West DVD by being interviewed, saying that one should “have heart”, and “never give up on your goals and dreams”.

She has always adhered to that and has become successful.
