What People Are SayingWhat People Are Saying

“These types of skills are critical to our success, but are rarely mentioned—let alone taught—elsewhere.”
–Workshop Participant, Kansas City

 "This workshop forced me to face my demons. The constructive feedback was incredibly helpful and it was fascinating to see the difference between what I am trying to say and how it is perceived."
