Working with April has been an absolute pleasure. She recently provided invaluable support to our group of real estate agents, helping us maintain a positive mindset in our challenging industry. Her guidance and insights have made a significant difference in how we approach our work. I can't her enough for her expertise and dedication to our success! Jake

It is rare to find an individual like April who is both equally talented as both a trainer facilitator and program designer. When an organization makes a decision to bring someone from the outside to both design and facilitate it could be challenging as this person needs to quickly understand the organization needs. April immediately connected with everyone who she met within our organization, she figured out our goals and delivered an outstanding Customer Service training program. The program April designed made a positive first impression on the day of delivery to our teams and we have seen the impact from this training within our organization in the days that have followed. I would highly recommend April to any organization looking both someone to design and facilitate a training program on leadership development/customer service.

Assistant Vice President of Training for L’Oréal Professionnel USA

Having April coach and train our L’Oréal Professionnel Artists at our kick off training for the year was a perfect way to inspire the inspirational. The impact of this customized training she provided really met our team exactly where they were with an interactive training focused on training trainers. Our team has taken away so many great learns from the ACT workshop. They are focused on ROE (Return On Expectations) and in a service driven industry like beauty this is a game changer for us.

Director of Sales Avocado Green Brands

Our managers read through 'The Positive Effect" we let them use the Live Purposely, Lead Positively workbook as self-development self led tool, we pulled the inspiration cards periodically in our manager communication channels. We then held a manager meeting and discussed the three pillars ACT, for Accept,  we discussed bias and our ego I could see the managers have break throughs, for CREATE we made a vision board around sales targets, and focused on positive language versus negative, and for TEACH we focused on the activity in the workbook write a letter to your mentor and refected on how their assistant managers would feel about their leadership. This was impactful and showed them how they impact results through positive leadership.

April and the team devised and facilitated a two day leadership training weekend retreat for the Essentially You management team. Throughout the planning and preparation process April’s attention to detail and commitment to understanding the functionality of our health care organization was outstanding. April demonstrated a depth and range of knowledge, skills and professionalism that were exemplary. Moreover, April was able to connect with the team in an engaging, thought provoking and encouraging manner, whereby enabling individuals to step out of their comfort zones and take risks. April applied effective communication techniques underpinned by a comprehensive understanding and delivery of the principles, tools and resources applicable to building and maintaining successful organizational leadership. I can confidently attest the Essentially You management team are without doubt better equipped to lead our organization through the next period of growth and development.

Area Manager Retail

I had the opportunity to have a development planning session with April to set my career goals for the year. Prep work included a self-appraisal alongside determining my top two competencies to plan to develop. In the past, development plans I have written were general, high-level, and geared toward end results. When I came to the meeting with April, at first I felt woefully unprepared, despite hours of self-assessment and research. This was a different kind of development plan; focused on the specific actions I’d be taking along the way to get me to my goal. April asked excellent questions to get to the root of my need for development, and simplified the process while encouraging me to dig deep into my daily processes and habits. This allowed me to establish a clear path forward to act immediately and consistently on my development plan, rather than simply writing something down to think about from time to time. I am already seeing progress in myself that I hadn’t thought entirely possible in such a short span of time. All because April took the time to listen, ask questions, and encourage me in my own development.
