Client Testimonials

"I am still reveling in the feeling of excitement from our two days together. In addition, I am sincerely thankful for all your work organizing the program for us. Inspired by our discussions yesterday, I am already noticing intentional mental pivots to incorporate grace, poise, confidence in my interactions with my team, peers, and leaders.

Interestingly, I had the opportunity to share a flight and car ride with a company leader, yesterday after our training; it was almost like a pop quiz, but I felt confident in translating the strategies and tips learned throughout our session in practice to communicate effectively, and had a great conversation with him.

Thought I would share the experience with you! Thanks again!"

- Alice, Cohort Participant, Accelerator Academy
