Here’s what previous participants had to say about the OYF retreat:

  • This was awesome and has definitely helped us focus our efforts!
  • The goal setting techniques are very empowering.
  • Great balance of time management and flexible flow. Group instruction and sharing, private quiet time, and one-on-one time with you. You balanced all of our needs.
  • You were generous with time and attention. I appreciated that you shared additional concepts and tools as we needed them. The Hartman Performance Diamond was great for thinking about employee issues.
  • Good stories and examples. I loved the charts and drawings too. 
  • The materials were fantastic. I’m a fan of big paper and colored markers! The color coded notebook and emailed templates for us to fill in were super.
