“Brie helps you understand very clearly the dynamics involved in difficult conversations.  He helps you see why conveying the right information is not enough, it has to be delivered in an adequate format specifically adapted to your listener. He provides a useful and practical analysis on how to detect and improve communication patterns, indispensable tools for every professional and personal interaction.”

Great presentation tonight! My a-ha was that a positive workplace dynamic frees critical time for achieving our mission. In a small not-for-profit, that’s key! Thanks again.”

“What Brie does is help you interpret what you are actually conveying to the other person and “how” that makes the other person feel.  Once this is clear, he coaches you on how to refocus the conversation so that both parties can hear the content and move forward in a positive way.”

“Great presentation tonight Brie! Very insightful and impactful! I was riveted by the impact of “conflict” in the workplace and stunned by the statistics you presented. People often think that walking away is easier than facing their issues straight on – I can appreciate why working with someone with your expertise would be invaluable to small and large organizations alike.”
