“I was promoted to Senior Manager. It was an unexpected promotion. You should know that one of the reasons cited for my promotion was my ability to communicate and connect with my staff. I truly believe that much of what you taught me contributed to my promotion. Learning to be "present" for my staff, peers and superiors has made just a difference, Sandra and one I continue to work on daily. The grounding technique is one I rely on regularly to help me get back on track and I daresay, one technique, that I will practice the rest of my life.”

“I went on a job interview and found myself “speaking from my heart” about the future of medical practice and where I would fit in. Most of the providers I had never met. I felt myself really in the moment and among a VERY captive audience. I was just amazed at how it went. I owe my relaxed comfortable interaction to you and the classes.”
