“Lillas is passionate about her area of expertise and displays very strong knowledge, experience and confidence in presenting some of the “softer leadership” concepts. She provides a very non-threatening environment to explore some very personal leadership issues. A good, warm and empathetic instructor who made room for all types of perspectives. She was surprisingly adept at taking a group of people who don’t like wearing their hearts on their sleeves and getting them to talk about encouraging the heart. Lillas displays such sincerity and connection to her subject; it was enjoyable to participate. Really challenges honest and frequent reflection of leadership.”
