  • Tina provided a two-hour DiSC training with all staff which was very interactive and helped people to see how different styles each have positives and potential pitfalls. Our staff valued the training and assessment process, and I am seeing improvement in our ability to more directly communicate in a productive manner.  Tina is a fantastic trainer who was engaging, positive, and enjoyable.

  • Tina provided a perfectly customized training for our team at a virtual department meeting. I was very impressed by the scientific basis and how Tina was able to condense the essence of the learning in a stress-free and fun, interactive, virtual presentation. I highly recommend Tina - everybody should know about these fabulous tools and techniques, as even the most motivated teams can get discouraged and overwhelmed at times.

  • During the first months our HR team decided to work from home in 2020, Tina’s book Sharpen Your Positive Edge served as a foundation for many of our weekly meetings. We selected tips to focus on, and each team member shared how they practiced the tip. The book is filled with quick, easy, and relatable tips which were extremely helpful in causing us to pause and be mindful of the positivity around us, even in the midst of highly unusual times.

She is one of the best speakers we’ve had and was very engaging.  Tina’s presentation was fun and exciting and keeps you on your toes.  She uses humor, personal stories, and science experiments to keep the audience involved while teaching the theory on positive thinking that everyone can use a little more of.
