Epiphanous for me, both personally and professionally

“Thank you very much for the amazing job you did leading the EQ-i 2.0/360 training last week in Toronto. I have been to MANY training sessions in my career, and yours was by far the best. Quite honestly, I am still somewhat ‘deer in the headlights’ in terms of the material, but I am a huge fan of anything that forces us to dig a little deeper. It was quite epiphanous for me, both personally and professionally.” Joanne Paterson, Durham…

David is the best

“I have been to many workshops throughout my career and have experienced many different facilitators. David is by far the best. David’s style allows participants to listen and absorb information in a very relaxed and non-confrontational way which makes the learning totally comfortable. David was always approachable and open to questions and demonstrated a thorough understanding and interest in the subject matter. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend David Cory as an EQ facilitator to colleagues. Thank you again.” Julie…

This group provided so many insights

“I think that I definitely take away, as I came into this, I thought, you know, I always want to add to my methodology and offerings to clients as I build my practice. And I got some great ideas on how to approach emotions and people going through change because that’s kind of my bailiwick. So I really appreciate, that’s a big takeaway for the group, I always like to hear because you get very centred in your world where…
