I loved the program. It guided me during a time of drastic change in my life and helped me improve my skills in an incredible way to achieve my goals.
The Neutral Shifts leadership program was truly valuable and fulfilling at the same time. As a woman of color in a leadership role, I felt this program offered me the support I needed to feel more confident in my leadership position. This program is designed to make you think outside of the box and apply new methodologies to your work. I recommend this program to anyone who is in a leadership role.
This program has raised my self-awareness and helped me shift my behavior to create a more positive & productive team environment that has driven excellent results.

The Neural Shifts program has helped me become a better manager. Venus provided practical tools that I can use to motivate employees and manage conflict. I really appreciated the emphasis on self-reflection and I will continue to use the resources from this program as I grow as a leader.
The Neural Shifts training resulted in some enlightening moments about my leadership style and areas for improvement. Now, armed with an actionable toolkit, thoughtful coaching, and helpful resources, I'm committed to changing how I show up as a leader so I can bring out the best in those I work with.
This program was really helpful for a working professional. The group coaching is the best piece of this training, as it allows the opportunity for managers to see how to implement the strategies and tools right away and get feedback on specific situations such as motivating employees, resolving conflict, and taking a look at best hiring practices to create maximum value in an organization. I also appreciated the integration of neuroscience.
