“Seek first to understand; then to be understood.”
– Steven Covey.
I used Amy’s services during a period of my life where I did not know how to take care of “me”, where I was so focused on work, work and more work and where the “doing” was so overpowering. Her coaching allowed me to overcome the “guilt” in taking time out to “nourish the body and mind” in an effort to have a healthy body to achieve my goals. I am now able to balance business, philanthropic work, marriage, friendships and me time. Thank you Amy.
You have a real passion for training and development and it certainly comes out in your work. Each program that you design is specific to our needs. Your creative approach to delivering training includes involving the learner, which helps to make the learning more fun. I truly enjoy working with you.
You are extremely thoughtful and detail-oriented. You understand the importance of accountability and action in achieving results. You involve the people in the organization in designing their desired outcomes, and then coordinate a plan that realizes their goals.
Amy is thorough when explaining concepts and she intuitively senses people’s needs for further explanation or examples. She guides a group learning process smoothly with a comfortable ease and lighthearted enthusiasm.
