Leslie’s presentation impressed me deeply because of its integrative focus and clarity. I have come to understand and admire Leslie’s very deep and very broad perspective on self-development pursuits and practice. I have also come to know what a gifted, patient, and generous teacher she is.
The best word I can find to describe Leslie Hershberger’s way of working with teams is the word ‘catalyst.’ She has a very rare skillset way beyond training and facilitating both of which she does superbly. But there are a quite a few good trainers and facilitators ‘out there’. Leslie is very different in that her method might be described as an intervention into the mix of a team’s dynamics or energies.
Her method precipitates collective team awareness. Team members discover how they are operating as a team. The result for the team is the ability to identify its own performance drivers and blockers and rapidly adopt those behaviors that result in breakthrough performance. Hence the word ‘catalyst’. She is quite something to watch. I have found working with Leslie personally transformative as well.
Leslie is both warm hearted, and thoughtful in her teaching and coaching. I have witnessed her depth of knowledge, teaching skill, and awareness. I consider her a brilliant teacher and coach. Her insight into the fundamentals of their personal, professional and spiritual development makes her teaching especially poignant. I recommend her highly. You will benefit from your experience with her.
I originally sought out Leslie to find out more about my Enneagram type. Little did I know what I actually yearned for was spiritual meaning and that our work together would set me on a path to self-transformation. Leslie’s compassionate coaching and loving presence have helped me grow in ways I never expected. During each session, she creates a safe space for me to explore my vulnerability—the gateway to intimacy. As are sult I’m able to connect with others and myself in a way that feels authentic and deeply satisfying. Leslie’s soul-centered approach to the Enneagram is perfectly suited to anyone who feels called to dive deep and discover the person they were born to be.
