Past Superintendent and School Principal

“I was an HR person before I became a superintendent and I worked with hundreds of employees as well as about 42 other HR leaders in various school districts. We never really incorporated how important the emotional connection is. I wish if I could go back 20 years from now because it would have changed the lives of thousands of people.”

“I have so much more awareness. Am I being giving? Am I being kind? Am I being compassionate? Because if I am doing all those things then people would feel differently. The training has been huge for me. This course changed my life.”

Angelina Iyamah-Wilson,

alent Management, American Honda Motor Company

“The piece that I loved the most about EmC is it removes the content. I began thinking about a conflict as a bad cycle that sits in between two people. That simple shift was important to me and I’ve done MBTI, StrengthsFinder, DISC, HOGEN, and pretty much all of the assessments and still hadn’t come to this realization.”

Rich Thome
Board Consultant and Partner, Leadership Associates

“The training gets deep into one’s own emotions and once becoming more aware of their own emotions, they can realize that those board members with whom they’re dealing or employees or colleagues, they can realize that every human interaction is really about emotions. And what people are really wanting to know is that they matter, that you care for them, that their opinion is important. Once people get that, they become very strong in their practice because they’ve experienced themselves deeply internally. That is what it’s about. It’s not so much about a pat on the back or another certificate. It’s about saying, you matter, I care about you. You being in my life is important and that’s what I’ve learned. And that’s why everyone should take this training.”

Dr. Betty Uribe
So Cal Executive Vice President, California Bank & Trust

“It was delightful to see a process that is clearly delineated and can be used by anyone. It caused me to put myself in the other person’s shoes and really understand what was going on with them and how they felt. I learned tools that I can use immediately.”

Victoria Brodie
Leadership Communication Strategist
“EmC helps fine-tune and engage teams so that they’re really connected in what they’re doing at work. I think it’s phenomenal.”

Alicia Maciel

“Emotions motivate actions. In order to change actions, you have to change emotions. The process of emotional connection had helped to become more confident in my ability to create a safe environment and guide my clients to explore emotions that motivate the behaviors.”

Dr. Kerri Heath
Assistant Vice Chancellor, Pepperdine University
“We often hear that it is important for leaders to have high levels of EQ, but we don’t always learn how to develop EQ. This course is the “HOW TO.”

Jean Lee
HR Manager, DEB Construction
“The amazing thing is that I now focus on reconnecting people. My job is not to fix problems, it is to address the actual disconnect. Once I help them to connect, they can fix their own issues. It makes my job so much easier.”

Susan Forster, M.Ed., SPHR
CEO of
“This training is about how to work with emotions in a structured way, knowing how to proceed and to reconnect people back. I consider this to be the foundational training.”

Elizabeth Ryan
Bank Branch Manager, California Bank & Trust
“The training gives you so much more insight that is right there in front of you and you never thought about it.”
Jonathan Silk 
Quicksmarts Team Dynamics Coach
“It was an incredible experience. On a scale of one to 10, I’d rate it a 10. This course filled a gap for me. EmC is what drives team bonding and it’s a leader’s job to create those bonds.”

Rocky Bandeladze
Regional Manager, SVP, California Bank & Trust
“Since I’ve started using EmC, I have not done any reminders and the process we had a problem with, is now done flawlessly. My team got my message.”

Debbie Taranto
HR Manager, Lloyds Pest Control
“The entire experience was probably the most worthwhile three days that I’ve spent. The training helps us to remember that we are people in the work environment and we don’t leave our emotions outside.”

Deborah Robertson, MSHR, PHR, SHRM
HR Manager, KapStone

“My experience was amazing. I would highly recommend the three-day program. EmC builds better relationships because it helps you to better understand what’s driving the attitudes and the behaviors of employees so that they can increase productivity and have better teamwork.”

Eva Hackler
VP of Business Operations, DEB Construction
“It’s important to understand how to emotionally connect in order to build better people and better relationships. With EmC, a natural cohesiveness starts to blossom in an organization.”

Rich Gomez
Board Dynamics Development
“I think the training is important to organizations because it helps people be better people because you get in touch with not only yourself but the others that you’re with.”

Shahin Vosough
General Manager, Center Club of Orange County

“The experience has been absolutely nothing short of amazing. Our Board of Governors is more engaged than they have ever been. I can’t think of any organization that deals with people that would not benefit from this training.”
