I recently had the opportunity to attend Dr. Schaefer’s leadership workshop that was arranged through my company (Ameren). The workshop provided excellent insight into leadership, communication and conflict management. Most interestingly, Dr. Schaefer made us realize the correlation between leadership and conflict management and how communication can play a key role in bridging the two traits together through a well defined process.Vijay Gade
Zach knows the business of facilitation and communication. Having participated in a recent facilitation training course led by Zach, I found the exercises to be stimulating and interesting. More importantly, what Zach brings to the table are methods and techniques you can immediately put to work in your business – large or small.Jay Clary
In a recent PMO summit we invited Dr. Schaefer to train our PMO team on Conflict Resolution and Conflict Management. The workshop was interactive, interesting and included group activities that led to dynamic conversations. I would highly recommend Dr. Schaefer’s training classes to any organization that is looking to enhance team performance and effective communication.Sigal Dor, MBA, PMP
