Learning about how the brain works was the most helpful learning experience.
She was extremely knowledgeable and helped us build better working relationships by teaching us about different communication styles, preferences, as well as our individual strengths and weaknesses. She showed us how to build upon our individual strengths in order to become an even more effective board.

Erika makes what could potentially be a very technical/scientific topic into a relatable and realistic subject, using real world examples.

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

Your workshop was very informative and beneficial. In fact, the very minute I returned to work today, I was confronted with a situation where I was able to use what I had just learned, and I think it really helped me in dealing with this particular issue. And right away tomorrow morning I will have another meeting where I again will apply what I learned. You gave us some very good tools that can be applied in our real situations.

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!

It struck me as an ahh-haaa how micro-interactions can help allay threats to status and uncertainty. Others left with their own ah-haas, which is what made the session so valuable.
