I recently attended Jeffrey Benjamin's Breakthrough Training. I have attended several leadership trainings over the years, and Jeffrey's two-day workshop stands out as among the best I've personally experienced. We were a mixed group of individuals who had never met before. We were required to self-organize in small groups to accomplish tasks that were challenging and unfamiliar. Participation was required from all individuals, which elucidated the different types of personalities and how we each find our place within an organization. I plan to send other members of my office staff to the workshops. Highly recommended!
