"Carol is magical. She made the class fly by. She is smart and passionate and kind and thoughtful. I wish I could take her home with me. Her class was so thoughtful on all subject matters that I want to send my assistant here to take her class and even speak to my HR department about possible group sessions for other colleagues. What she teaches is often over looked with the newer generation of people and she offers value for any growing or tenure professional. "Erica Denning | Sega
