e-monials (edited for length only)


"I so enjoyed the seminar you gave yesterday for Providence Healthcare, Dr. Izzo. It was inspiring, thought-provoking and yet when I left at the end of the day, I felt very peaceful and reflective. You must have been exhausted though. It is clear you put everything you had into the day. When you asked if we'd ever had a good manager, it was easy for me to answer. You were such a perfect fit for Providence and understood our values."

"Thank you for such an awesome day"


"One person can make a difference.  I believe that even though we don't always receive timely or tangible feedback that allows us to measure our influence, we can motivate ourselves to keep trying to make a difference as one person if there is evidence that it has worked in the past.

I'm passionate about effective and honest communication, and I think you did an excellent job today.  Thank you for taking the time to prepare for your presentation by talking to the TELUS leaders.  I'll pass along your message to my team members."

Have a great day,
