Dietrich’s Testimonials

“I think I have always understood the value of emotional intelligence in relationships, but our Sage was able to bring us to a deeper understanding of what it means and how to use it effectively. It was exciting to see a diverse group of individuals, from very different backgrounds and industries, achieve tangible markers of growth, both personally and professionally. I felt a connection with this group I honestly doubted was achievable through an online platform, prior to this experience. I’m hooked!”
