I am Floored!

I just attended the TAGteach workshop last weekend. I cannot say enough wonderful things. I tried out TAGteach with both my group and private dog training clients. It has made an enormous difference! Every single client gave me positive feedback without me asking them. Every single one. I am floored.

Jennifer Pennington, Dog Trainer

We Gained New Insight

Specifically those in the medical field, including the entire breadth of staff, particularly physicians. What we all gained was a new insight into the responsibilities of leaders and new tools to enable us to become more effective leaders and teachers. It was a true paradigm shift."
