What's Inside the 3 Vital Questions eCourse?
Course Overview
“The 3 Vital Questions provided a simple way to start a nuanced conversation about how we can all be empowered to succeed at the important work we do here at Children’s Hospital Colorado. The skills we developed in the program enabled us to bring heart to what we do, while also ensuring we execute on our long-term vision.”
- Ryan Simmons, Director of People Development
Children's Hospital Colorado
 
"We have been using the concept of TED* for 2.5 years and our revenues have grown from $38M to $140M this year. A big part is the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual energy people bring to work today is not being wasted on internal drama and building silos but rather focused on growing the business and taking in the challenges of the marketplace. Plus, when things are right at home, people show up more prepared. We have measurable results in turnover, absenteeism, and revenue per employee that blows our industry out of the water."
- Steve Hall, Driversselect
"...Really smart and helpful information about...stronger, saner, and healthier ways of behaving."
