Comments from past workshops


“Thank you so much for the invaluable information you imparted to our staff this morning. It was all essential, and not something we have heard before. I am excited for what this awareness and knowledge will mean for the organization. I’m very much looking forward to working with you going forward!” McKenzie


“Just a quick note to tell you what a great class that was last night. Wow! You did a great job Joe of condensing a lot of great insights and truths into a short hour and a half period and doing it in such an enthusiastic and whimsical way… beautiful to watch happen. The additional time together in small groups was really cool as well.” Gregg


“This workshop was definitely helpful and worth my time! So much insight! Especially realizing all the potential for growth in my relational and listening skills!!! Deep listening conveys love, closeness and safety- that is my take away.” Erica


“I’m leaving my phone when I’m having interactions with people so I’m able to be more present and listen to understand. Not listen to respond. I loved this class! It has already been a game changer for me in my life. Everyone wants to feel heard.” Kendall


“Wow! That was so enriching! Thank you for sharing your time, talent and experience. Every single step you shared was invaluable to me. Some of what you shared was a much-needed refresher course for me. The rest was equally needed, with a new perspective that I plan to incorporate in my daily mindset and communications. The information was so understandable and practical.” Shirley from Huntington Beach, CA


“There were many good reminders; the sections on stress/anxiety, frustration, anger and loss/disappointment were well covered given the time. The tools/suggestions and how to deal with each of these issues no matter what the circumstances were helpful. Although we may know the tools (communication) to use in our life, it’s easy to become lax in our everyday behavior. I also appreciated the pieces that were added regarding God, and our faith.” Brenda from Sunnyvale, CA


“I thought it was great! The examples given for the concepts you were talking about were very helpful!”                                                 Crystal from Lancaster, CA


“My mind was really engaged with what was being said. I also appreciated the lack of interruptions. There was a time for questions and discussion, separate from the teaching. That was helpful in maintaining clarity.”  Lorin from Santa Cruz, CA
