What Our Clients Say about Our BoldWork Programs:

“For ten years, I’ve been asking myself, ‘How do I motivate my people?’ I don’t have to ask that anymore. Through the Intentional WorkClimate System, I now know the capacity work climate has to release all the energy and motivation my team has – and myself as well!”   ~ Manager, Health Care Company, Seattle, WA

“Finally I’ve found something that puts both men and women on my team on a level playing field. Practicing improvisational thinking teaches us that everyone’s ideas have merit, everyone’s input is valuable. My work group is more open and energized and we’re generating a lot more ideas.”
