What people are saying

Recent graduates of this training said:

  • This course definitely changed the way I think. I find myself using these newly acquired “tools” when I’m under stress. Plus I’m more mindful of others.
  • This course is life changing. The instructors are amazing and personable. The weekly sessions were engaging and interesting. I wholeheartedly recommend this course. 
  • I took the class because I was feeling stuck in my career and uninspired. This course made me look closely at how I show up as a leader today, and paint a picture of how I want to show up as a leader in the future.

The course was amazing. The teachers broke this heavy learning down in a way that was easy to absorb. The group and leaders were all very supportive.
