“The seminar was a great insight on how to be an effective coach and mentor to staff the reports directly to you.  I walked away with some insights on how to change my language, going more from telling to asking to allow the direct report more ownership in their career path.  The seminar provided good handouts, a panel and some interactive exercises along the way all of which made a great way to spend the day. Plus, Brenda is an awesome speaker and coach, added bonus.” – Partner/CPA, Denver
