Client Feedback

"Janet has a gift for putting people at ease and enabling full participation and cooperation. She wove leadership, communication and teamwork competencies into a fun-filled, creatively packaged day. Janet is a dynamic and inspiring facilitator who skillfully brought us together as a team. As a result we will definitely work more effectively going forward. Throughout the day she spent with us, I received lots of valuable gems that I can take back to the workplace with me. This was the best teambuilding day I have ever attended."
- Beth Olson, Sr. Manager, IT Service Support, Staples, Inc.

"Out of 75 facilitators delivering the Service MGH program, Janet by far stands out as the best. She is able to establish rapport with people at all levels, from the support staff to the CEO's clinical and administrative leadership. She is excellent in needs assessment, instructional design and delivery."

"Janet's years of experience working with people give her a vast array of skills, stories, ideas and examples to draw from. Whenever we worked together, I never failed to come away from the training with an “Aha”. Her strong connection with people makes it possible for her to turn any training session, even a potentially difficult one, into a positive experience for everyone. "

"Janet has the ability to put people at ease and to make the training fun. When people are enjoying themselves, true communication and learning takes place, sometimes even without being aware of it! I hated to see the programs we did with her come to an end!"
- Nancy Dahlstrom
Manager of Operations Support
MasterCard International

"Janet teaches by being, not by doing or being in a role. She has a gift for expressing ideas with exquisite simplicity so that even the most unsophisticated participants immediately comprehend and the most sophisticated achieve deep understanding at the fundamental level. People complete her trainings not just at the level of excellent students, but at the level of excellent teachers and often with the newfound ability to be teachers of teachers."
- Carl Chiulli
Technical Manager
Polaroid Corporation

"Janet's work really moves people. Those who are lucky enough to experience her as a coach or trainer leave truly changed. She has the clarity and charisma as a trainer to motivate others to learn. She also has the rare ability, necessary to executive coaching and leadership development, to create a place in which someone is safe to be who s/he is and yet where one has few places to hide. This helps the person "get it" quickly, and design changes that will work for them in the real world."
