Standing tall at WREA

I recently asked Kent Noble to give the Standing Tall presentation to the members of the Wyoming Rural Electric Association at our annual meeting.  I was a little nervous about how the program would be received just because many of my members are ranchers, farmers and cowboys so I didn’t know what they would think.  Turns out I had some of the more “seasoned” people tell me that they loved the program and very much appreciated what Kent had to say and how he said it.

I wanted to let you know that I sent an email to my children’s school about your program. They attend a private school and I think this would be an excellent program to implement.

WREA session


Thanks so much for presenting at the Wyoming Rural Electric Association annual meeting. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation! I found the content inspirational and motivating. It made me want to work even harder to be a better person! I look forward to reading The Try and seeing how I can apply it to my everyday life.

Rock Springs Seminar

thoroughly enjoyed the Standing Tall program. I was very impressed with the speed, I was never bored but I also didn't feel rushed. Kent knows how to captivate an audience with just the right mix of stories and facts. It is great to learn about the Code of the West from someone who lives the code each day. 
After I left, I was very energized. I was excited and couldn't wait to read, The Try, and finish my code.The program filled a void in my life, that I didn't know needed filled. My Code has been created, but I have already modified it twice. Every time I read it, I get a sense of purpose. 
Great program all around!

Thank you Kent & Jim for a very interesting program yesterday at Penn State. Your thought provoking  discussion helped us all evaluate who we are

in addition, you provided a forum to help us define and articulate who we are and what we stand for.

Great Session @ PSU

Jim and Kent offered a fantastic Standing Tall workshop at Penn State. Their message and delivery were fabulous and well received by our staff in attendance. Nearly everyone who participated were appreciative of the seminar and the manner in which it was presented. I would highly recommend this session and encourage anyone thinking about offering a staff development training opportunity in the area(s) of ethics, integrity and/or leadership to seriously consider the Center For Cowboy Ethics and Leadership.

Wyomiing Bar-Standing Tall


I enjoyed the workshop.  You mentioned a teacher in Colorado who developed a curriculum for “at risk” students.  My son teaches 9th  grade at risk students in Gillette.  Would you provide the contact information to me as my son would like to contact the teacher.  I mentioned the focus of the workshop and he is quite interested for his students.

Standing tall feedback

I just have to say that this seminar is making a big impact in my heart
already. I knew some things that I needed to do, but haven't started
implementing them into my life yet. Well, all I needed was the little
push, and that's exactly what I got today. Thank you very much for the
great start of my new life.

Standing Tall session 5/23/13

I attended the Standing Tall session May 23, 2013. It was excellent. It took a while to decide on a summation of my code to put out for the world to see. "Be a person of integrity, at all times, in all situations."
I was a disappointed in the section on gossip. It has a very high impact on productivity, office moral, and relationships in the workplace. It was the first time you had presented it, but a scolding isn't much incentive to change.  Presenting the negative results of gossip can result in change.
Thank you for coming,

I enjoyed the Standing Tall presentation.  This made me realize that you have to believe that you can make a difference.  Be proud of who you are and what you believe in.  I think that in society today we focus more on the negatives than the positives, we have to stand by our own ethics and not be afraid to speak our beliefs.
