“I would absolutely recommend this program. The discussions we had about work styles/expectations was so impactful to our working together and improving as a team. The content seemed non-traditional (in a good way) in that it was not department specific, but was a great use of our time toward the end of working better together as a team.

“It is a structured way of getting further in our inward journey. The program is easygoing and well-paced out and the consultants are really good. Ultimately though the value added depends on how open and honest we are with ourselves and with the consultants and how deep we want to go.”

“It was a great experience to understand that the small things we do/sacrifice on a daily basis can affect our work-life balance and often affect our actual quality of life. I’m inspired to be more aware of the points mentioned in the class and work towards a better organized work experience.”

“As a new hire to Microsoft, I found that I was already falling into bad patterns and not doing a good job of balancing my life. This workshop helped me catch these early enough for me to make adjustments before they became hard to break habits.”

umpqua-logo“I found myself near tears while attending one of Jae’s seminars focused on Work-Life Balance as I had already recognized this was an issue in my own life but had not done anything to address it. Her insight and thoughtful delivery of the subject matter really makes you think about your own life and the employees that work for you. A must attend and first step for any business leader or individual concerned about work-life balance.”
