Upon completing Personify Leadership, I gained a comprehensive, practical set of skills that I can immediately apply in my work to be a more effective leader.
For me, as a facilitator, I loved the interactive, experiential work throughout Personify Leadership. I loved the rich debrief and realized that I don’t do enough of that in my work. I really love the whole body model and the opportunity to keep that model present just to ensure I am approaching things in a holistic way.
The Personify Leadership course is a good fit for anyone who leads a team and is wanting to better understand and develop his/her leadership style. The eight core body-focused competencies paired with the engaging facilitators, case study videos and classroom activities created the perfect learning environment for all participants regardless of industry. This class challenged me to take my leadership development to the next level.
I always appreciate the opportunity to experience leadership development programs. I personally feel that is best done viewing the session from beginning-to-end, perhaps it’s my personal learning style, but it is what works for me. This is just so much more informative, than short sound bites. I really valued this opportunity to add this to my known portfolio of leadership development offerings, as well as the numerous personal development “gems” I took away. You have done a great job of building your program. I am really impressed with the modular aspect of the program, and you’ve done an outstanding job with the participant manual and its application in your sessions. The level of interaction and the great way these exercises relate to real world experiences are excellent. Well done.
Rather than trying to catalogue lists of leadership theories, models, and desirable attributes in my head, and in turn, trying to move that information from my brain into my actions, Personify Leadership stores my leadership cache within my body parts. I can simply go from head (mind) to toe (footwork) and recall what I should be doing in each dimension to reveal the leadership I am striving for. Personify Leadership somatically bridges what is known about effective leadership with leadership actions and behaviors in an easy-to-remember way (and therefore easy to implement).
Being immersed in a safe, active learning environment allowed me to experience a deeper understanding of who I am as a person and leader back in the workplace.
Like other organizations, we have a huge need for an engaging and effective leadership training program. The Personify Leadership program really fits the bill! As a trainer, I love the blend of experiential, lecture, metaphors, and internal processing activities; it really keeps participants on their toes and helps them integrate the information better. I'm also getting great feedback from participants. I'm so glad I found this program. Thank you, Michelle and Angela!!
The Personify Leadership program has become an integral part of my management and leadership skills. The tools that the Personify Leadership program provides have proven to be easy to learn, simple to implement, and most of all effective in action. The Personify Leadership team have a way of presenting complex concepts that makes them easy to digest and apply to real-life situations, and their great attitude just makes learning fun. Thanks to them I was able to explore the myriad aspects of leadership, and have successfully found my own path to success. I cannot recommend this program enough - whether you're a young entrepreneur fresh out of business school or a seasoned veteran of the corporate world, you will find something in Personify Leadership that will resonate deep within you and help you open the doors to taking that next step.
Thank you again for creating and delivering an engaging and unique leadership program. Your idea of linking the various leadership competencies to our body in a way that we can literally carry the learning with us is great. I also found the activities developed for the training very relevant to the learning and brought new ways to see how the issues related to leading others show up in our day to day lives. I am excited to bring Personify Leadership into my company.
The multifaceted approach of Personify Leadership provides a non-threatening, interactive approach to leadership development. What I learned about myself and leading others has continued to resonate and give me confidence as I lead others.
