“My work with Karen transformed how I operate and continues to transform me. I’m in a happier and more productive and focused place. I learned how to make it easier to do more in less time and to focus on the things that matter most. I am more comfortable juggling numerous important projects and tasks without undue stress.”
~ Rich Holloway, Senior Manager, Accuray
“Before working with IAMX I was struggling to express myself, and I wasn’t speaking up because I wanted to avoid conflict. I am no longer afraid of speaking my true wants and needs and I ask bold questions. Now I can be me. I’m happier, I’m a better leader, I’m honest, and also more confident. The IAMX Leadership Academy [early version of Define Your True Self] is a brilliant course that touches on the human side of things and it helps uncover the good in us.”
~ Patricia Villa, Production Supervisor, Parmatech Corporation
“IAMX and our Genius Culture has given us a common language and non-threatening way to name challenges, so people are less upset and defensive, and more able to see, recognize and address issues without getting pulled into conflict and scarcity thinking. People are now better equipped to handle their frustrations, realize that we want similar things, and focus on what we want to get accomplished together.”
~ Rob Hall, President, Parmatech Corporation
“I felt like I wasn’t being heard, then I needed to do things just because I was told. Now I can be in a tricky situation and then flip out of it by sticking with my values, strengths, motivations and team support. As a result I can listen more, absorb what others are saying, spread positive energy and look more at the big picture. We all need a change and IAMX does that! You get balance in your life by knowing yourself out loud.
~ Kelley Snead, 1st Shift Lead, Proform
“We’d been making decisions well, and resolving issues well, but running short on time was our biggest struggle. IAMX taught us to take an abundance approach to time and get smarter about how we used our time. We paused and got more strategic, we prioritized what was important, we asked for help, and made progress on our most important work.”
~ Melissa Russo, Business Unit Leader, ATW Companies
“I was not fully confident with certain personalities even though I feel like I had the knowledge and tools to handle most situations. After working with IAMX, I evaluate a situation before I respond. I am listening differently which has reduced the stress and drama in my work and home life. As a result, I’m now able to lead and complete quality initiatives that before were stalling – I have the confidence and credibility that allows for better results – for me and my organization.”
~Suzanne Stites, Parmatech Corporation
“I used to be afraid of drama because of the win/lose dynamics of scarcity thinking. IAMX takes you into a whole new world of abundance, where instead of being afraid you can riff with confidence about challenges and conflict. It’s completely changed the way I handle things, I get so excited to share – because I know how to connect the dots between what I want and what others need. I’m empowered from within, I create my own power, so it’s easy to let go of worry about what other people will think. “
