“The workshop provided me with an opportunity to use parts of my brain that are often silent but when allowed to speak give me a sense of wholeness and power. I also gained incredible insights about some of my patterns and possibilities from the exercises and the dialogue. I was able to apply my learnings immediately at work and home.”

“Being new to the leadership training thing, your workshop on Communication in the Conceptual Era was a real eye-opener. The exercises and conversation peeled away a lot of assumptions I held about the leadership role and myself and offered both intellectual and emotional insights that have made me more effective and more comfortable as a department head. Sharing this workshop with a group of smart, successful, thoughtful people made the process as engaging as it was enlightening. I’m very much looking forward to continuing the growth in the next workshop. Thanks Ipek.”

“This workshop allowed me to open up and use my right brain skills to be more creative. This has provided me with a new way to approach situations as I lead my management team. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who does not have the opportunity to be as creative in their daily work life because the use of the right brain can actually create opportunities for new ideas to emerge. This workshop has stayed with me even weeks after I attended and I often go back to some of the valuable techniques I learned to apply them in my current role.”

“The workshop was an eye opener for me. There was plenty of turmoil in my work life due to a pending reorganization. The workshop exercises helped center my thoughts around what I wanted to do once the turmoil settled. As a result I was able to show-up better and get the role I wanted”

“In an overdeveloped Left Brain world, Ipek unleashes the vastly underutilized power of the Right Brain. Prepare to feel like you’re stepping into new territory, and experiencing amazement at what you’ll realize has been untapped!”

“I highly recommend this workshop for anyone managing a team of professionals irrespective of industry. The IS sessions help to engage tools that we already possess but have been sidelined by left brain dominant thinking in the workplace. Learn how to activate that right hemisphere in ways that will foster not only personal fulfillment but also help empower and get the most out of your employees in the post-Information Age.”

“The workshop gave me an opportunity to expand my thinking about the work I am doing in my role as Director of Executive Education. It helped me shift from thinking about individual development to organizational learning. The exercises helped me make that shift as I observed a top notch group of professionals engage and produce results that surpassed their own expectations. It was a truly unique learning experience with an outstanding group of fellow practitioners.”
