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.

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

Fabulous session about setting employee expectations, developing team and individual work plans.
Policy & Planning Manager
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.

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.
Erika is a high energy, engaging and thought provoking speaker.

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.

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