This training has helped everyone understand we each need to be more empathetic and mindful of the needs of different generations. Kristen and Erin demonstrated a unique understanding of the problem we are facing and were able to connect it to specific issues facing our industry.

Since the training we have received requests from various coaching staffs to have The Good Doctors return and dig deeper into these issues with their student-athletes.

I loved their energy! Their passion made the content even easier to absorb! Their thorough research really helped me understand a great deal more about relationships and being a better communicator. 

I appreciated that their teaching style included the mix of crowd participation with very informative slides, along with time for breakout sessions. I wanted to do another session with them immediately because of the wealth of wisdom they have combined with their relatable experience!

After this training, I am more aware now of the communication differences amongst generations and am more intentional in using different strategies.

As a head baseball coach, the training provided a better understanding of how we as a staff may need to communicate with our student-athletes along with the concerns they may deal with on a daily basis. This training has made a difference in how I approach my work because I am more aware now of the communication differences amongst generations and am more intentional in using different strategies.

What stood out to me from the training was The Good Doctors' energy, passion, and knowledge of their subject.

With so many generations working together in the office as well as serving Gen Z as our primary audience, our team leaders wanted to create a space where our employees could openly discuss their preconceived ideas and perspectives while also learning how to show empathy to others.

What stood out to me from the training was that it takes great intentionality to show empathy for someone we don't fully understand. What I enjoyed about The Good Doctors training was the openness and practicality of their approach.
