Appreciation of Excellence
I cannot say enough amazing things about this woman. She is truly one of the most gifted and talented women I have ever met. She is on the cutting edge of the research and practice of leadership and team development and is like a Jedi Master at helping people step into their very strongest leadership style — a combination of activating strengths, tapping into purpose, and learning the ongoing practice of inspiration.Janet Kraus, CEO, PeachHarvard Business School Lecturer on Entrepreneurship
I asked InspireCorps to help design an innovative process to replace my company’s traditional performance review process. This firm designed a fresh and creative process and training program, grounded in social science research, and thoughtfully tailored it to fit our needs and culture. I was thrilled that 98% of participants left the training feeling confident and motivated to implement this change. InspireCorps can be counted on for thoughtful, innovative, and evidence-based employee, team, and culture development.Dennis Driver, Vice President, Human ResourcesTheravance Biopharma
