Professional Development Testimonials

Nadine Hanchar was hired to review the performance of AKAC INC., an engineering consulting company, to evaluate the company and facilitate its future planning, organization and operation.

Nadine performed the following:

1. Individual evaluation session for each of 6 key employees, their personality and communication styles, strengths, priorities etc., providing feedback and discussion for each individual.

2. Lead a company joint key employee session, where she provided collectively feedback to all key employees on each of their personality, communication styles, best suited work roles, their desires etc. She provided clear indications and guidance for planning future of the company, how the company would best work together, organizing its employees.

3. Lead and facilitated a 3 day workshop for key employees to put together a plan for the company future; company vision, future organization, roles and responsibilities, as well as financial basis for the continuation of the company into the future.

I and all AKAC employees were very pleased with the work and results provided to all of us by Nadine. Her input and human leadership was central in recreating the company and getting it to a highly positive future track! This resulted in a highly successful reorganization, transition of the 30 year old company from its long history into its re-organized future.

With Nadine’s inputs to the individuals and collectively, the result has been a conscientious, well functioning, organized and communicating organization. Less than half a year after the above consultations, the company is now very busy, professional, positive, and internally well organized. Employees know each other better than ever, and work together in a new, highly respectful, competent and effective fashion

On being asked to comment on what this course has brought into my life, I have to say too much to put down on even one page! In a nutshell, though, NLP has provided me with the tools to actually take control of my life! Never have I been happier or more excited about the choices I have right now and in the future. I highly recommend this training to anyone who wants to create more choices in their life, and who wants to become a more effective communicator. I salute Nadine Hanchar for her high standards of professionalism  and ethics, and the caring, heartfelt way she teaches the course.


We found the first training so helpful that we’ve had Nadine work with us several times since.

Taking the NLP course has been for me like opening a door and stepping through into a place where I see, hear and (literally and figuratively) touch people in new and different ways. It has helped me to appreciate the uniqueness and potential of every human being. It’s been empowering, challenging and enriching.

Nadine’s perspective on understanding the different ways in which people process information is a unique perspective on overcoming barriers to effective communication.
