"The confidence and empowerment you have given my staff is priceless! Thank you for the fun and safe learning environment! Every company should have a team builder this powerful!"Alysha Blazevic
“Shelley coached me through some challenging events and also used her skills to help me see things from a completely different perspective. That is the beauty of what she does. She has tools to help with growth and leadership. I can honestly say that the time spent with Shelley was a tremendous benefit to me personally and professionally.
One area that we have worked hard on is team building within our leadership as well as our staff. Shelley led our leadership team through the Strengthsfinders so that we could identify our own strengths and understand those of our fellow leaders and how we complement each other. This exercise helped our team to grow and improve how we communicate with each other and decide who might be the best person for certain projects given their strengths. Shelley also facilitated some team building for all of our staff. She used liberating structures to make it meaningful and fun.
We were able to increase staff participation in departmental initiatives and effectively move our employee engagement scores from 78% in 2014, to 83.8% in 2015.”Barb Sakahara RN, BSN, CNOR
"I had never taken a self defense class before, so I had no idea what to expect. The instructors were great -- friendly, informative, professional. There was a great balance of information and first-hand experience. We had lots of opportunity to practice, ask questions and make sure we were comfortable and confident with the skills we were learning. The instructors really encouraged us to get the most out of the experience as well as encouraging each other in the class. I loved watching everyone feel more confident as we realized these were skills that we could do and tools that work. This is a really wonderful course, I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!"L.J. Lehr
