"I really cannot thank [Ethan] enough for the amazing Human Element training and follow up conversations. By far, the best event of 2017 for me was The Human Element training in Tarrytown.

"Great information on how your behavior affects your organization. This training was life-changing. I recommend it if you ever have the chance to take the course. Those of us from UT have already discussed the difference we all feel this week. We’re much happier and hopeful, and we have discussed how we feel more "connected" – to each other and to the university.... You’ve managed to touch my personal life as well as my professional life in a multitude of ways. I am recommending the course to all my clients..."
