Don't just hear it from us.See what others are saying.

Aliece Dutson

President, Mission Grammar School
As a leader and educator, I have done numerous programs and coached dozens of team members. Designing Talent was one of the most transforming experiences in my practice as a coach and leader. The tools and language I gained during the training have been instrumental in my success in planning through projects large and small and helping my teammates grow in their own talents. The instructors, Matthias and Verena, were amazing! They created a safe space for us to learn and challenge ourselves. I am so grateful for the opportunity to complete the Designing Talent Program, it has deeply impacted my practice and I am grateful that I can now share this with others! Thank you!
