Bob Newhart started out as an accountant. So humor is in our DNA! At least it looked like it last Friday when David and Alex of CSz Seattle showed up at the Washington Athletic Club. They led about 40 members of the local Institute of Management Accountants through a very humorous examination of communication failures and successes. Using presentation comedy and team participation, accountants, not always known as great communicators, had a hands-on opportunity to strut their stuff. You guessed it...lots of laughs. And, lots of lessons that illuminate what a challenge good communication really is. Things we think simple are often easily misinterpreted. While very funny with CSz by our side...they can bring disaster in the workplace. Everyone enjoyed themselves and came away with a renewed sense of how much work needs to go into getting your point across, explaining how to use or do something, and simply stating what you think. A refreshing and very engaging group effort. Thank you CZs. Hope we can do it again next year. The Greater Seattle Chapter of the IMA.
The head trainer Peter and I used to be coworkers. At the end of almost every day, we would clean up the rooms we worked in. This gave us a lot of time to talk about work, school, and life in general. During these talks I would complain a lot about the people in my life who made me feel awful and being unappreciated at our work. He saw right through my complaints and pushed me to confront my deeper issues of self-esteem and doubt. My tendency has always been to react very viscerally to negative things in my life, chalking it up to being an emotional person. I would dwell in my sadness in a way that in the past had led me through an eating disorder, and even after would lead to feelings of emotional exhaustion and depression. His advice always lead me to confront my feelings about negative situations and helped me think about the power I have to change the way I react to negativity and life in general. Peter began to encourage me to practice being mindful of my feelings and the triggers around me through meditation. Here are two BIG lessons that Peter helped me understand. #1: He helped me realize that negativity or “suffering”as the Buddhists refer to it, is part of life. Before I met Peter, I would obsess over why I suffered through bad things, always trying to put the blame on others or often putting the blame on myself. But Peter helped me change my mindset. I now am continually trying to be mindful of negativity and focus my energy on how to move through it. This has improved my performance at work, helping me become less of an inactive complainer and more of an active problem solver. It also continually helps me in my personal life, keeping me from dwelling too much in disappointment or sadness. #2: The second thing I learned from Peter is that meditation and mindfulness are practiced. They are not always going to be easy. Every meditation is not going to be peaceful and each sit down is different. But each one is impactful and offers moments of clarity. Though honestly, I have not committed myself to a daily practice of meditation, Peter has helped me begin a practice of mindfulness that is continually helping me grow. As I continue to practice I find those moments of peace and contentment. Mediation and mindfulness is a path that I am still carving out for myself but Peter gave me the tools to begin and continue my journey. Thank you Peter for helping me find this path!
Laura taught me English for several weeks. I received excellent corrections on pronounciation and grammar. The fun about learning at Laura's has been one-to-one Skype sessions, direct feedback, socially oriented outline of topics, flexible approach. I chose for personal lessons and learning in a group would do the job as well!
Cindy helped me in coaching on what does leadership mean and not just top down but also bottom up. She was very good listener and genuinely interested in helping/coaching on the issues I was facing. With her experience she has very deep knowledge about today's issues that business leaders face. Her approach is very unique through detailed questioning, learning and collaborating on the solution.
On behalf of the Cell Life Church Council, I wanted to take a moment to say how much we appreciated the two day workshop Amy deVries led for our church leadership team. We have implemented many of the things we learned from her and have seen a marked difference in our teams interactions and effectiveness. She very adeptly lead us through difficult discussion topics that allowed us to not only understand each other but also how to communicate better with each other and achieve common goals more quickly and with more success. I would not hesitate to recommend her seminar to any team looking to improve their team skills. I also have no hesitation in recommending her coaching services to individuals. Amy's insight is obviously Holy Spirit led.
I worked closely with Kevin for over four years, and during that time, his support and leadership were the benchmark of how other departments were measured. Kevin and his team consistently supported the development plans/training plans of over 2600 individuals. He designed development plans for the Senior Leadership team and their direct reports ensuring that they addressed/developed "blind spots" in their skills to accelerate performance and to execute more cohesively as a team. Kevin was also responsible for designing/developing/executing our National Sales Summit managing everything from the agenda to the theme to the P&L. Kevin is one of the best executives coaches that I have had the opportunity to work with and that I highly recommend if your company is in need of a turnaround or just needs to take its performance to the next level
Suzanne is a one of a kind yoga teacher that delves deeply into the meaning of what she teaches and believes in. She always has the time and compassion to work with those that desire to understand how yoga can improve their lives. I was a student of hers in Maine for about 4 years. We were all so sorry to lose her to Seattle!!
Sue was instrumental in helping me find a career path that aligned to my values and build the confidence to pursue it. I use the personal and professional skills I learned from Sue on a daily basis. A priceless investment.
This was my first experience using a CPC, I was apprehensive at first, but adjusted to it. Juanita makes the sessions comfortable and enlightening. I gained confidence with each session in expressing my feelings and thoughts. This was a really enjoyable experience. Being unemployed at the time, the sessions helped relieve the stress and the rejections that come from job hunting. A great experience and life lesson!!
I have worked with Steve at the Cobalt Group for almost five years for various business needs. He has helped me with my business plan, marketing strategy (on and offline), my business operating model, and my website design. Steve also coached me on how to make public presentations. He has always exhibited the highest professionalism and his work quality is always above my expectations. Steve listens to my concerns and works with me to create the right solutions to my business needs. He is a valuable partner. Steve has my strongest recommendation for anyone wanting to make their business more successful.
We have used Mr. Bannister's designs on business cards, flyers, and even special event T-shirts. The designs are always simple and elegant, yet arresting and powerful. Highly recommended.
Kim's coaching technique is a unique and comforting approach in that, she makes you feel relaxed while stepping back to reveal previous hardships. She is uses precise tools for the client to push out their own solutions . She also brings out all the positive attributes and characteristics to maximize their fullest potentials. I would highly recommend her coaching services to anyone: leaders looking to strengthen their skills or individuals looking for that extra push.

I can read bodies and alignments. I allow students to make adjustments at their own pace through verbal lead so they can actually recreate that experience and correct their alignments in the future. I understand the pitfalls of yoga and incorrect breath/posture instruction and can safely guide students into a progressive practice. I am not an airy-fairy yoga instructor.
