With Mindy Stern at the helm, our managers are receiving practical knowledge and up-to-date skills in how to communicate, motivate, coach, assess, and respect their employees so as to maximize each employee’s contributions to the organization. Each training session is followed by a separate coaching session to allow our team to operationalize what they have learned in the class, process what has happened back at the work site, and receive additional technical assistance and positive peer support. Mindy has received enormously positive accolades and they are well deserved.
