I just received the message below from our Florida office administrator and thought you’d be happy to see what she said about yesterday’s training. We had an HR meeting right after the session and all of the regional office admin and HR managers who attended the session highlighted how helpful the program was and spoke about specific situations where they will use what they learned. The others have asked to see the video of your presentation. ........"The training yesterday on talking about difficult topics was excellent! I will fill out the “evaluation” today to relay my delight on the training. The open discussion always raises great scenarios and sharing of information that is so incredibly useful and helpful. As you saw during the HR meeting… it was quickly being used in real time. The instructor is also fantastic! You’ve had her conduct trainings in the past and she is first rate. Thank you for offering such an important, fantastic and helpful training. "
Elizabeth is a truly exceptional coach! Her skills extend well beyond her peers. She blends a sophisticated understanding of human behavior with extensive knowledge and experience in organizational management and development. I am a practicing psychologist and direct a multidisciplinary practice. Coaching sessions with Elizabeth quickly helped me identify what was getting in the way of reaching my professional and practice objectives; she offered fresh ideas and insights that have helped me succeed in ways I never imagined.
I consulted with Elizabeth Sudler when I was going through the difficult and protracted breakup of a long-term personal relationship. Elizabeth is, among other things, a gifted listener, whose sensitivity and discernment enabled her to immediately grasp the issues that were keeping me (and my ex-partner) from moving forward, and to frame and present both problems and solutions to me in a way that was immediately understandable and accessible. Together we fashioned a strategy for interacting and negotiating with my ex-partner that freed us both from our "stuckness" and eventually enabled us to reach a fair and balanced settlement of our personal and financial issues. Elizabeth's clarity and focus were invaluable to me in this process, and I know that I will be able to apply the skills she taught me in other areas of my life where I feel stuck or challenged (but I will be keeping Elizabeth's number on my speed-dial just in case!).
Working with Elizabeth has truly changed my life. As soon as I began working with her, the progress I was aiming for in my life (professional and personal – including relationships and spiritual, emotional and physical health) skyrocketed. She has a keen ability to read me, understand the core issues in situations I struggle with, and direct me with suggestions that are right on. Simultaneously, however, her style of guidance has helped me develop my own intuition and authority/confidence. She puts things in perspective. My conversations with Elizabeth leave me with hope for life.
This was a fantastic series – Elizabeth is a phenomenal trainer. She is relatable, funny, and able to address questions with ease and by sharing relevant experiences/examples. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with and truly listened to our staff and the challenges we face as an organization. I hope to be able to work with her again.
I wanted to send you a note to express how proud I am of Goldman Sachs for having the wisdom and foresight to roll-out Mindfulness training for our people. Given our hard-charging and type A culture, I’m sure many people pushed back in the belief that this was some kind of soft or “touchy-feely” training.
Quite the opposite, these skills will lead to more commercial outcomes for the Firm. I’m convinced (and know through experience) that mindfulness leads to greater productivity, more efficiency, better decisions, higher retention and better relationships. Well done!
