"I must confess, I was a bit skeptical when I entered the conference room this morning for the workshop. I must say, I was very much surprised as to how much I learned and how insightful Dr. O'Grady's methods are. It was very much worth my time.”

"I have been required to go to previous communication classes which were a big waste of my time. I was expecting this was going to be another dull and unhelpful communications class I would have to sit through. However, I was quickly surprised to find out that Dr. O'Grady engaged me from the very start to the completion of the class. He taught us practical tools when the rubber meets the road at work and with my family. Thanks for making an engaging class and exceeding my expectations at last!"

"I found it difficult to effectively communicate to my dock workers how to correct a mistake in the workplace. But now I know how to communicate my gratitude for my dock guys so they know I appreciate their hard work. As an IQ leader, I now has a solid grasp of understanding communication that will help me with any issue."
