Thank you again for the wonderful information and presentation yesterday on “Your Brain on Change”. I learned so much but the one nugget that will be my mantra for a very long time is “living gracefully with transition” will be my goal! The world of healthcare is ever-changing and evolving and to resist this is to set one up to be in a continued state of stress!

Thanks again, Erika – it was very useful stuff this morning and things I can both incorporate immediately and/or look at long term.

A fresh and energizing perspective on interpersonal relations in the workplace; a valuable recognition of the communication barriers that naturally exist between employees of different levels in the organizational hierarchy; action-oriented learning in that I left the session with ideas for changing my own behaviors based on what I learned.

Spirited—great sense of humor— easy to stay attentive!
[Erika’s workshop was] excellently designed and executed training. Erika was very tuned into her participants and the materials are very well designed for adult learning. Great workbook, ppt design and training techniques!

We found Dr. Garms to be an excellent, thoughtful speaker with really good practical material. Attendees commented on her thoughtfulness and the many useful ideas they gained from her talk. Some have already requested that we bring her back to a future event!

Love, love, love this presentation. I wish we had another hour to hear more from Dr. Garms. Excellent job. Can’t wait to read her book.
It is obvious that she is a master teacher and trainer, and remains on the cutting edge of research to help her clients form optimal working relationships. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her manner makes it easy to work with her and learn from her.

As a lunch keynote speaker at the UIC HR Academy, Erika had the tough job of engaging an audience that was more focused on food than professional development. She addressed the challenge head-on. Not only did Erika deliver a message that motivated individuals to participate in meaningful information exchange, she also inspired audience to learn more about the benefits of a brain-friendly workplace.

Learning about how the brain works was the most helpful learning experience.
