"From day one, through to the course debrief, I felt that Sheila was dedicated not just to delivering, but also to adjusting the course to fit the dynamic of the group she was training.  Sheila was always very organized, which was reflected in the efficient execution of the course.  It is very evident that Sheila has taken the time throughout her career to think about not only the “what”, but also the “how” and the “why” of leading people.  My favourite part of the course was the insight and activities that Sheila provided that allowed our leaders opportunities to self-evaluate; this really opened the door to thoughtful introspection and positive leadership change."
