“On behalf of the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), thank you for presenting Got EQ? Leading with Emotional Intelligence and Making a Difference Through Leadership at the September 2011 Awardee Conference in Denver, CO. The information you shared was insightful and valuable to the Awardees who attended. Thank you for giving your time and sharing your expertise with our participants.

Your presentations inspired and motivated the participants to continue making a difference by providing access to quality health care to underserved populations and to further the mission of the Corps. Your knowledge and expertise enhanced the overall success of this conference, and we couldn’t be more appreciative. “

“You we’re a great clean-up hitter with a simple but powerful message about embracing change! The after conference surveys of our investment managers resulted in very high marks and very positive comments about your keynote session!”

“Michelle closed out our Inside Sales all-hands meeting with a direct and motivational call to action for our entire group. With more than 100 sales representatives in the audience that had spent 6-months enduring several reorganizations, Michelle could have taken the easier route of empathizing with the general feeling of discomfort and uncertainty. Instead, she delivered a key message of change and embracing the opportunities that come with it to win in our very competitive world. Her delivery and real-life experience were much appreciated and very motivational.”

Her enthusiastic and vibrant personality shows how compassionate she is to the success of every person that participates. I have enjoyed tremendously my association with Michelle, and know that she would bring those same skills and qualities to any company with which she works.”

 Thank you for leading the workshop at our recent all-hands meeting.  Both the content of the workshop, and the energy & enthusiasm with which you led it were very well received by the team.  I had several comments afterwards that people got a lot of value from the session. I also appreciate the time spent up front in customizing the session to our particular groups’ focus and fitting into the time we had available.  That made it much more applicable to our situation.
