ENDORSEMENTS / TESTIMONIALS
I have had the pleasure of working with Terrie Glass on numerous occasions and have seen the transformative power of her authenticity, wit, and unfailing ability to cut straight to the core of the leadership issue at hand. In my quarter century of work with organizations and their leaders, one truth remains undeniable: we prepare employees to produce, we prepare them less to supervise, and we prepare them virtually not at all to lead. I cannot overstate the value of Terrie’s practical, applicable leadership wisdom. Our institutions are hungry for it and will be much more effective as a result.

As a healthcare and nursing leader, I have spent thousands of dollars looking for that magic book that would help me be an effective leader. Finally, I have found exactly what I was looking for in Terrie’s book, “Blood, Sweat and Bricks: Laying your Foundation for Effective Leadership.” I only wish I had found it 50 years ago. The title defines the content as she extraordinarily lays out the foundation of how to be an effective and successful leader. She explains the foundation and reinforces it with real life experience that leaders encounter along the trajectory of life’s journey. Each “brick” I found to be profoundly right on the mark. Now don’t waste another minute start reading. Leadership can be your passion which will require you to never work another day in your life because your work will be joy!”

Terrie is excellent! She has an excellent understanding of people, their needs, and the way they think. She has worked with both our support and our management staff and is equally comfortable and effective with both groups. She delivers a message that really makes people evaluate themselves and inspires them to consider what they coudl be doing to have greter fulfillment in their lives both personally and professionally. She is engaging and has a delightful humor that has people laughing while learning.

From participants in corporate open enrollment programs…
Loved the exercises. They were beneficial in relating the material and application of discussions. Your real world examples are great. I was able to relate the learning easily to my work.
Terrie is an excellent teacher. Her insightfulness about interpersonal interaction was very helpful to me.
I have taken a lot of classes in my 20+ year career and I have to say that this program (all 6 days) was the best I have ever participated in. I really learned things that will make me a better leader. Thank you.
I found this to be a very enlightening class. I was able to examine my feelings, behavior and leadership style and to, hopefully, develop myself as a stronger leader.
I came to program because my supervisor “strongly suggested” that I would benefit from your expertise in effective leadership. I didn’t want to come at all, and now, I don’t want it to be over! Thanks, Terrie!
