What participants are saying about our NYC Leadership Training & Development Program

 
 

Starla was simply amazing.  Her ability to inspire the group to share stories or experiences beyond what is typically considered "comfortable" between team members made for a truly incredible experience for our small group.  Starla is one of the best individuals I've met and I will continue to stay in touch with her even after the program has ended.

That first coaching session CHANGED my whole trajectory! It was amazing – gave me things to think about that I had never considered. My boss has given me resulting feedback about how well I have “stepped up my game” – just by inserting myself more assertively in meetings. Wow!
~Manager, Bain Capital

Starla  did an exceptional job adapting to the team's personality and allowing us to get the most out of our time together. By doing so, we were able to share and collaborate in a more effective manner.

The network I built with the program, especially my learning group, has been a gift I never would have predicted. And knowing that even in our different functions and roles, we are working through similar challenges, has been super helpful.
~Director, Financial Services Firm


 

Whether it was our engineers in Sweden or our customer service leaders in the US, the program got rave reviews. It got our engineers thinking about how their interpersonal skills impacted their team - a move away from being the smartest person in the room. As head of leadership development, I couldn't be more pleased.
—Veronika Wilsher, Director Learning and Development, Opera Solutions

 

Starla was really relatable. She used to be in our line of business (financial services).  She understood our concerns and had good feedback to offer.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

Starla did an amazing job.  She built rapport with each individual, listened to the groups needs and created an environment of trust.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

Starla did a fantastic job at being a coach.  She made everyone feel comfortable, and found a great balance between pushing everyone outside of their typical comfort zone, yet not too far to where they shut down.  Always open for a honest, candid conversation.

Starla was AMAZING. I am not normally someone who feels comfortable participating in workshops, but Starla created an environment of trust where I could get real feedback about  workplace issues that I needed to make a hard decision on.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

 

Starla was extremely effective in encouraging us to speak candidly and openly about our experiences and takeaways from the group sessions. She was incredibly effective as a coach.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

Starla was very easy to relate to, and it definitely felt like a workshop, and not a seminar.  The content was hands on, interesting, and effective.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

Starla was great! She was positive, optimistic, encouraging, and a great listener. She liked to have fun and made the experience better for me

~Participant, Leadership Development Program

I think Starla was a huge factor as to why I enjoyed this program.  She truly enabled my group to be open and honest and add valuable perspectives to discussions.  We all connected on a great level.  She made everyone feel comfortable and always had good insights to provide.
~Participant, Leadership Development Program

Starla was amazing. She was a great listener and facilitator of the group discussions. I especially enjoyed our one-on-one coaching sessions, where she pushed me to think through my values and how to align those values with my work and life. And she was fun!
