What they are Saying

"….I think you have made a real difference here at AACC…..Your work with members of our senior staff to help us prioritize our values and goals was an important step in our quality initiative. Your sessions on communication skills, project management, conflict resolution and improving productivity were right on the mark and well received. The resource book you produced for us has been very useful. Perhaps one of the most significant changes you've helped bring about here is the institution of team meetings. With your help staff have learned skills in group process and communication….One of the things I very much appreciate about your approach to working with us has been the practical nature of your advice, which seems to be guided by experience and theory. I have learned from you and have enjoyed working with you."
