After attending Karen’s workshop, my team’s self-awareness on how we interact with each was transformed. The framework covered delicate topics, inspiring suggestions, and thought-provoking behavioral biases. Highly recommend to leaders desiring to take team performance to the next level!

What separates Karen Thrall from other corporate trainers is how she can take heavy topics and bring a levity to them.  We were laughing together, yet understanding the very relevant and practical content she delivered. We implemented the training immediately within our ELT.  Karen’s training inspired all of us to place the pursuit of being a great communicator as a top priority.  An excellent business resource for leaders.
