My co-worker and I attended the leadership training with Judith Bailie (your team trainer) last month. It was by far the BEST training I’ve been to! (and I’ve been to dozens)  Judith was exceptional and we learned so much! We have been working on implementing things we learned in that training at our office. We were all excited when we got back to work – really pumped up – and then reality hit us. But we haven’t given up! We are supporting each other in our commitment to be agents for positive change in our office. We really appreciate everything Judith taught us and most especially the joy with which she shared her stories. She is so awesome!

Dear Bob, Thank you for sending Jewel Ware for our two day team building! She was excellent and the staff really connected with her. We did some important work while she was with us and have created a follow up to do list! I think she was able to push us out of our comfort zone on the second day and we were able to analyze how we work and what we can do to build upon what works well and what we could improve. Thanks for another great session!!

Thanks a metric ton Bob! I appreciate the (Foundations in Supervision) course and the use of the tools in the workplace. We used the problem-solving tool that you shared, during a new hire/training/orientation class, in a breakout session, and it went over very well. Thanks for getting the powerpoint slides out to us too! I look forward to training with you again in the future. Very powerful stuff.

As an Air Force officer, I have been to countless leadership training seminars. I was skeptical about how much I would learn. It (Leadership for Aspiring Supervisors) turned out being one of the best courses I have taken in years. The interactive dialogue-based format was excellent. Kapila (instructor) was the consummate facilitator. He allowed for great stories/examples to be shared, but always put it in the context of the class. I plan to take the lessons learned and apply them heavily in managing up. I like that there were several federal organizations in attendance. Great opportunity to share and network. The self reflection and analysis offered was critical.

Substantial information packed into 3 days (Leadership for Aspiring Leaders), which could be extended to a week; excellent participant activities and interaction that uses tools and techniques addressed. Insightful information and tools to use when I attain a full leadership position.

The class (Strategic Planning) was great. Kapila was fun and energetic plus the attendees were engaging.  I’m looking forward to future workshops/training events with the same group and instructor.

Bob, I’ve been an executive in corporate America for 25 years and I have never, ever gotten so much out of a course; especially a course that I thought would be just another ‘review’ of what I already know and have learned. Forgive me, Bob. You brought insights that I have never considered. You made me, and all of us, take a candid look at my own style, behaviors, attitudes that either inject or infect others, and the impact of my very presence each day. You bring psychological insights and perspectives that few other facilitators are able to weave into training. You wove in emotional intelligence skills superbly. When you first mentioned that we’d focus on values and virtues I thought it was a joke; but you brought it all into concrete reality and helped me see the impact on business interactions and customer service. I am in awe. Thank you so very much.

Working in a federal work environment is challenging and unique for many reasons. Kapila (instructor) knows and shares well his insights and tools to navigate and build leadership capacity. Kapila is helping the federal government to transition into a new era of efficiency and empowered mission objective delivery.

Albert

The tools for guiding thinking, visioning, and problem solving (in the Strategic Planning course) were very helpful. And, Kapila described them well and guided us through using them. I intend to apply these to the work my team does. We already plan for each year and these tools have the potential to enrich the work we do.

Great class (Leadership for Non-Managers) and instructor (Kapila Wewegama). I have learned that its okay to speak to your supervisor and get to know them. Speaking up is part of becoming a great leader. I am a multi-tasker and want to do it well. I learned its okay to slow down.

I wanted to send you this short note expressing my feedback on the Experienced Supervisor class that just concluded today in Reston, VA.  I believe the class was an advanced Supervisory class taught by Jewel Ware. Nearly half of the participants were from the CFO office. I want to say this class exceeded my expectations and I heard many other participants express the same sentiment. The instructor, Jewel, had everybody participate and everybody opened up to the role-playing, the coaching, the mentoring and skills discussions that occurred daily. The curriculum was very appropriate for what we needed and what we were looking for.  It was a great experience and one I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get a more advanced set of training/discussion of managing staff in today’s environment.

Mr. Schout, just sending you a shout out to Jewel Ware. She was the very best trainer that we’ve ever had come to our agency. Dynamic! Engaging! Entertaining! She spoke truth to us and we needed to hear it. I usually fall asleep during trainings but I just couldn’t, not with Jewel. She kept us going and she made it relevant for the entire 3 days. A big thumbs up to Jewel.
