At INSPIRATIONWORKS we work with all levels and positions in the organization, however much of our work does focus on leaders and leadership. We take the most current successful leadership strategies and provide concrete and practical whole-brain thinking tools and communication skills to achieve tangible results from those conceptual strategies. The results are improved engagement, innovation, and personal wellness.
Some favorite feedback from leaders:
“We as managers and leaders...often forget that completing the mission and overwhelming tasks at hand does not have to happen at the expense of our own sanity and health. This course gave me some tools to be able to take a step back, evaluate my reactions, and move forward more deliberately and compassionately (to myself and others).”
“Everyone individually--and [the organization]--would greatly benefit from a more comprehensive approach to leadership.”
“After taking [your program], I went from Tier 3 on the Morehead survey to Tier 1.”
"The program has made my job easier."
We were retained by one of Jim Collins's eleven "good to great" Fortune 500 companies (Jim Collins, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't) to assist in their continuing effort to build employee engagement through emotional intelligence. Already one of Fortune's Top 50 in revenue, profits and number of employees, their goal is to maximize their competitive advantage by directly impacting productivity and profitability.
Some comments from the client's participants in the two-day retreat that we created and delivered:
"You have to take this workshop! It helped me as a person and employee grow and stretch my abilities."
"The workshop was very thought provoking and well worth the time spent. I have changed the way I respond to others and make more of an effort to connect in all my interactions in a positive way."
"I felt that I learned from Val and Roger, and to bring it to life in the role plays, team discussion, etc. really helped me to fully understand the concepts, how they apply and when they are appropriate."
"You executed wonderfully! Our team came together in a way that will sustain us through the year and beyond. Thank you for your preparation, delivery and passion for the work you do! We are blessed!"
"It is hard to believe that our offsite has come and gone. You should hear the buzz around here...what a fantastic experience both professionally and personally! On a personal note, let me just say that I took away some valuable lessons from your workshop that I won't soon forget. THANKS!"

"I've been to a lot of workshops, but this is by far the most professional and taught me the most." (RL) "I
took Roger and Val's first course at Portland State University over two
years ago, and it changed me. I found new tools for being more
authentic in my relationships with others, and for dealing with
conflict more respectfully and more effectively. It was an amazing
experience as I've always considered myself to be a competent
walking away from this...with a whole new outlook on life...the
concepts are so simple and basic, but it's amazing how recognizing them
and finding ways to incorporate them in everyday living can truly
change your life." (RH)
"I am passing along this information because I went through this workshop a few months ago and found it to be a fantastic
experience. Roger and Valerie Pease are talented teachers and very
skilled with Emotional Intelligence. We were able to go deep in our
learning and connection with others. I learned and practiced skills I
used immediately to clarify and resolve a standing conflict with a
all attended seminars that didn't quite deliver what was promised. This
is not the case with InspirationWorks. If you are serious about your
emotional growth, I encourage you to make an investment in yourself.
Roger and Valerie Pease are both knowledgeable and approachable....they
provide a safe environment to explore new insights and ways to
communicate with others. They are able to provide you with a tremendous
amount of valuable information and give you valuable tools which will
enable you to be more effective in your personal and professional
relationships. THIS IS ONE SEMINAR YOU SHOULD NOT MISS." (DB)
"Never did I anticipate the profound impact these simple tools would have on me." (AN)
"I came looking for a paradigm shift, and I got one...one to do with myself. I am once again centered." (JB)
have learned so much more from this [workshop]...in looking at how much
I have [changed] in such a short time and with such basic, simple rules
of thumb to follow, I am completely fascinated. I guess you could say I
have stepped out of my box and allowed myself to experience [the
change]...especially at work where I need it most." (KH)
this summer I had an opportunity to attend a workshop on Emotional
Intelligence, that was conducted by Inspiration Works, LLC. It was a
session that was valuable, not only from a professional standpoint, but
provided practical tools in which I can and am applying to my personal
life as well." (AB)
"Wow! Talk about great timing...the two workshops I attended this week
literally changed my life. Not only has it changed my life but the
immediate effect of my understanding of your material has dramatically
improved the lives of my team at my [agency]." (PH)
