In an effort the help people change from the inside out, the event was geared toward professionals from area businesses who wanted to learn new strategies such as balancing priorities, improving communication, creative collaboration, balancing life and work and offering constructive feedback.
“I really enjoyed the workshop. It was very helpful and knowledgeable. The thing that I keep on remembering is “if an organization changes its culture then it loses its soul” said, Bryant Reese, LUTCF Insurance Agent Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance in South Hill.
Kimberly Roberts of Penmac Staffing Services in South Hill said the workshop showed her, “When we can no longer change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
