Leading to Change provided one of the best half day training events my teens have ever experienced. The fast paced learning kept my group engaged the entire time. The skills taught during the training had a real impact and we have already seen our students using what they’ve learned. We will definitely make Leading to Change events a priority for our group.

Leading To Change provided a wonderful and thoughtful group of exercises for an annual program called our Community Teen Leadership Exchange where we bring a group of Charlotte & Israeli teens together. Their quality of services was excellent, and the trainers were on time and really energetic allowing the teens to learn and have fun at the same time!

The Leading To Change facilitators made the afternoon a blast. Their ability to simultaneously entertain us while delving into complex regional workforce issues gave our group the needed push to turn will into action. Your whole team made planning and executing our event easy. We will definitely work with you again!

Thank-you Leading To Change!. We received and experienced exactly what we hoped for and then some. The fact filled fast-paced dialog identified perfectly with the instructor’s everyday duties and the problems they face. Who could dare shut an eye with the way your team kept the audience engaged? Well done!

Bringing together youth from ages 8-21 from across the country, it was important to get them comfortable working together quickly. Eric's fast-pacing and fun, yet purposely facilitated, team-building session at the 4th Annual Youth Philanthropy Connect conference was just what we needed to end Day One. Eric did a tremendous job making everyone feel welcome, important, and ready to be involved and work with one another throughout the rest of the conference. (Our theme was "Weaving a Web of Support" and Eric was able to make the session tie to the theme for an added feel of customization.)Annie HernandezExecutive DirectorFrieda C.

Leading to Change has been our "go to" agency to provide leadership training to our local youth for 5+ years running. Eric and his staff are dynamic, responsive and flexible and the kids LOVE him!

Leading to Change are truly making an impact by sharing their experience and expertise through valuable group trainings! Eric served as the Keynote Speaker at the 2017 North Carolina All Staff Conference for Boys & Girls Clubs, leading a 15 Tools in 75 Minutes Training for about 50 Club professionals and It Only Takes One to Make an Impact during the luncheon. Everyone was energized, motivated and inspired to take what they learned back to their Clubs so they can make a greater impact on the lives of youth across our state. Eric was easy to work with and very well-organized (he even flew directly from a prior engagement in Texas so he could be with us for the conference!). Thank you!!!

Leading to Change conducted a fast-paced, interactive luncheon plenary and a personalized breakout that made our staff move like I’ve never seen before! The content spoke directly to what our staff does and the challenges they work to overcome every day. Not only did you make everyone feel comfortable, but you did so while asking questions to find out as much as you could about your audience/our staff. And it showed when it was time to present! In my experience with presenters, that is a very unique skill set. You moved my table to tears (seriously)…in a good way!

Thank you SO much. The kids really enjoyed having you, in fact, they asked me when you were coming back I love the pictures, those smiles are great reminders of how beneficial this type of day is for kids -- and how it strengthened our relationships with them. I hope we can have you back to work with our students again --- until then, continue doing amazing work.

Eric and DJ truly energized the entire staff. It was motivating, high energy, fun, and a great way to bring a staff of new teachers and administrators together in order to start off a fabulous school year. The "Raise Your Game" training allowed us to team build and get to know each other. The session drove home the fact that we impact the lives of our students everyday and the need for us to be at the top of our game. My staff is still raving about the session and looking forward to round 2 with Eric and DJ. Thanks Leading to Change for bringing a fractured staff together that is stronger than ever! Since that session our school atmosphere has be phenomenally positive and high spirited.
