Reviews from Workshop Participants:


“During the planning session, our coaches were able to herd the cats of a management team and get everyone to focus on the tasks at hand and add value in the process. The coaches were adept at reacting to the situation at hand to capitalize on the aha moment rather than follow the pre-determined agenda.”
