“We all know how hard it is to recruit new employees but more importantly keep the good ones. We recently held a two day All Executive Director meeting and had Doreen Lang the author of the book Hang on to Your Stars be our opening speaker. Our Executive Directors loved her presentation and all the great ideas to create a 90-day engagement plan for new staff. Thanks, Doreen, for inspiring our leaders!”

I just needed to say “thank you” for turning on the light for me. I see my team as real people now and I want to know them better. Everyone is so different but together we are better. What I have learned about my peers in just a short time, I respect and see them as whole people with issues, just like me and I like them!

I thought this was going to be a waste of time as many professional development courses bore me terribly. But you had me in the first few minutes, and I wanted it to continue. Please come back.
