  • This workshop is informative as well as thought provoking. The topics covered were broad enough to be applied to multiple industries, but detailed enough so that it was fully understood.

  • The class allowed me to see decision making much differently and in a positive way. I now understand the difference between managing and coaching and the importance of each.

  • The cost/benefit of your lunch and learn series is excellent. It's so rare that I take a break for lunch, not to combine a wonderful meal with meeting new people and learning about myself was fabulous.

  • VCU’s program helped me understand the advantages and shortcomings of my work style and the ways I communicate. The program and its presenters provided specific, actionable techniques I’ve used to leverage my abilities while reducing the influence of my limitations. I’ve become more effective and efficient, and built deeper relationships and stronger networks. The program could not have been more influential in my career development, and I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity to grow.
