Our organization recently participated in the PI workshop. I've found this workshop to be very informative and insightful. Marnie has done an excellent job learning our staffing and management positions, and presented the material in a way that we were easily able to relate, and apply the principles to our employee management almost immediately. Marnie is extremely knowledgeable on the topics and delivers clear, concise and professional instruction. I highly recommend Alder Group.
