"Today’s training was fantastic! The staff are all talking about what AHA moments they walked away with. Many said they came away with a new perspective on patron interactions, such as recognizing that maybe that difficult patron really just has a different communication style. The training was the perfect mixture of fun and humor combined with sound advice on how to tackle tricky interactions. You fit a lot of information into our limited time together."
-- Heather VanTassell, Director, Walla Walla Public Library

"Crystal was an amazing instructor with so many practical and easy to implement ideas and strategies!"
-- Julie, Media Center Director, Millennium Elementary School, IL
