Frequently Asked Questions



“Thank you for a wonderful year filled with many takeaways from your Leadership Development and Management Competency Training workshops. The material you provided was fresh-out of the box thinking with very “useable” tips to easily incorporate into our management style and employee culture. Each workshop had many, many items that I could incorporate personally as well as work with our managers to incorporate on an overall operations basis. Lots and lots of great ideas. It’s difficult to summarize all that I got out of your workshops yet I have learned and continue to work to incorporate many of the concepts into our team.”
