Participant Testimonials

"Perhaps the most value-creating session I've attended. For me, an increased awareness of empathic communication will greatly contribute to how I shape my leadership."

“He had my attention from the beginning to the end. It was a really good session; even though we were tired after a complete week, I enjoyed the session every minute!”

"Very good with multiple layers of reasoning around why behaviors occur, how one reacts, and the needs behind them. Very thought-provoking."

"Fun with a bit of different approach. Really good with tangible techniques. Loved the exercise where we were to just listen to each other. Very effective tool!"

"Hard to turn the gaze inward, but oh so beneficial. To turn off the autopilot and dare to rest in the silence and the gap. Why are we so harsh on ourselves?"
