(For the communications program that changes lives!)


“This has definitely helped me reduce some of the anxiety and stress I feel when communicating with clients that have been challenging in the past.”

Susan F., Analyst

“I learned to have difficult conversations both with folks I supervise (so they get honest feedback and keep learning/growing) and also folks above me (whose default is to shut down ideas from junior people).”

Tony M., Project Manager

“I now have the ability to pause in a situation, decide what I really want, and ask for it effectively.”

Bekky A., Project Lead
Bethesda, MD.
