Survey comments from Tools for Transition participants, February-June 2013:
“I really appreciated the balance of the big picture thinking and very practical advice.”
“A great job of packing in a huge amount of information. The time really did fly.”
“Tools [the handouts] were simple, clear and almost exciting to fill out. Logically took me through the steps – inviting to work on. Positive presentation and excitement that this will get me to the next phase. The hours went by very quickly and I learned a lot.”
“Your seminar is supercharging my career transition. It hasn’t even been a week since the seminar and I’ve already implemented many changes.”
