"I have had the fortunate opportunity to study with Barbara on a few occasions. She has the unique ability to break down a topic and make it accessible for her students to explore.
The TeleWorkshop struck a fabulous chord between content and discovery, structure and group participation. We were invited to examine and explore our skills in a safe and supported environment. I left the final session knowing that I had a better understanding of this rich topic with solid information to use and carry with me forward. Thank you Barbara!
Thanks again for the wonderful workshop."
"Barbara's direct style is just the shot in the arm I was looking for. She is a uniquely gifted teacher and coach and weaves the two together seamlessly. I choose Barbara's tele-workshops because they are extremely informative and she knows how to challenge me. I may not always be comfortable, but I'm always growing."

My realization …I had defined the term “success” wrong. With a career (and, as a result, a life) built around a definition that was not aligned with my heart, I had to figure out how to extract myself from my current situation... Continue
