Sample comments from workshop participants

Caroline and Mitch gave an excellent presentation on generational differences at our last Leadership Development Institute.   The feedback from our leaders was extremely positive.  They felt the information shared is something they can take back to their teams to increase awareness and tolerance of different generations in the workforce.” Jenny Creamer, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

Director of Human Resources Operations, New Hanover Regional Medical Center

What a great talk and speaker  you are. The way you presented the topic, I was listening to you as a human-being who needs to act “Frax-wise.” I hope everyone on that room thinks the same way.  You opened an unconscious mindset which I have and had, which was built along with my culture and environment. Thank you for the eye-opening talk. I can start and teach this in my family and home. THANK YOU (Big one) , and THANK YOU!!!!”  Participant in presentation at Janus Group, March 2016

” [O]ne thing that helped tip me to starting a firm was one of the Lean In calls.  When we were discussing personalities (Fran and Max), I expressed my frustration at the mismatch between the firm and me.  It helped me realize that just how much of a different page we were on and that I had other options than to continuously fight.  So the group helped me “lean in” to being an entrepreneur!”  Participant in Skype workshop, with Stewart Hirsch for “Lean In” series of AIPLA, December 2015

“I loved it. I talk about Max and Fran so much that everyone around me knows them!” Participant at WILD workshop

“Awesome!” Senior-level attendee at WILD annual conference
