I want to say thank you to Dr. Kappel for providing personal leadership coaching and development workshops to leaders like myself for the past year. I received personal and group coaching and project management training from Dr. Kappel. I learned to get unstuck by identifying my saboteurs, and shifting my limiting beliefs. I learned to set SMART goals, improve my health and communication skills. My relationship with co-workers has improved and I am now able to mentor team members on risk planning and execution on projects. I am truly grateful for all I have learned to positively influence others. Thank you Dr. Kappel you are a difference maker.
