“These sessions have helped me start to thinking more carefully about my relationships with the staff I manage. I’ve started to be more deliberate with the way I communicate both with individuals and the group. The way Jim reminds us of the connections of our feelings, judgments, past experiences with our actions is very practical and simple, more so than other techniques that I have experiences through other management workshops. Approaching even the most difficult situations with employees with open curiosity has already started to change the way I approach being a manager.”
