People Are Talking
We are proud to have helped these leaders and teams improve their professional and personal skills.
"I was looking for something to take me to the next level, to supplement my leadership abilities. I gained the self-confidence to just do things I didn’t know how, with the faith that I would just figure it out with my team. It allowed me the vision to see things differently and it really opened me up. The perfect word to describe my results is that it really gave me a breakthrough within myself, which helped me with my relationships with my wife, children, and colleagues, and what my responsibility and accountability are to them."
"In 2020 I was actively searching for courses that would have a meaningful impact on my ability to lead within our organization. Like many, I had attended multiple leadership courses. After experiencing the awesome results Rapport helped me achieve, I highly recommend Rapport to any organization that wants to positively impact performance and productivity within a company."
"Our organization has now been sending our team to Rapport training for the past 15 years. We require our high performers and management team to attend Rapport training and Rapport has become our primary leadership training tool. Additionally, we now have several master grads and have had the Rapport team provide custom training for our team. We have found all of the training provided by Rapport to be outstanding. Obviously, we highly recommend the courses provided by Rapport."
Why go from LB1 to LB2? "After attending Leadership Breakthrough One, the collective thought of our management team was “what else could Rapport do for me”.. a thought which could not have been further from the truth. LB2 focused on the team and team dynamics, and different processes which create new approaches and styles of communication. Again, an extremely impactful experience – one beyond imagination."
"This experience was a terrific way to re-evaluate my life and how to change it to be more fulfilling. Change is very hard, and the total immersion has given me excellent tools and motivation to stay true to the promises I made to myself."
"My experience during Rapport's Leadership training was truly life-changing. The training opened the door for me to honestly look inside myself, my strengths, and my opportunities. This is much more than business-related development, this is the development of me as a person, which will benefit me as a leader in my home, as a leader at work, and how I conduct my life."
"Totally unexpected. I have never been a part of such a tough process and then yet, in the end, such a rewarding process. And, now that I have completed the training I understand that is the only way to get results. A positive, life-changing experience I would highly recommend. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner."
"LB1 was so different from anything I have ever experienced and it made a huge impact on how I look at life now. I learned to push myself further than I ever thought possible. When I thought I had given it everything I had, I learned that had even MORE to give. The process allowed me to unleash my potential!"
"Rapport is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime type of experience. Nothing about the class is easy, however because of the challenge you feel an immense amount of gratification upon completion. In just 72 hours of work, I earned a certificate that gave me a greater sense of satisfaction than my four-year degree and CPA certification upon completion. It allowed me to immerse myself in becoming the person I am meant to be."
"When I returned from LB1, I had a completely different perspective on how I needed to make a difference. The change I’ve seen in our company is that people are attacking their goals with a different sense of passion and certainty. They come back and do what they need to do to make an impact."
"A rewarding training that pushed me outside of my comfort zone while exposing my ability to do more and be more than I thought I could be. It made me think about what is truly important in life and where my focus should always be. I was able to meet new people from many walks of life and learned how I can help them through their Rapport journey."
"Rapport opened my eyes to walls I had put up in my professional and personal life. Not only did it allow me to self-identify barriers-- Rapport taught me how to overcome them. I am no longer embarrassed to come out of my shell. I will no longer be cutting myself short."
"Rapport's Virtual Leadership Breakthrough One delivered in every way possible. Many times I completely forgot I was in a virtual setting because of the focused structure of the course and the expertise of the facilitators. The virtual format is a very viable solution to make the Rapport content accessible to a larger range of people. I highly recommend it!"
"COVID has slowed the rate at which we have sent employees to the training, but I am happy to tell you about our first graduate from the virtual training, our founder, my father. After the training was completed, he found new energy and focus. He is committed to sending every one of our employees, as soon as possible. He does not want to wait and is behind the training 100%. I give Rapport Leadership International my highest recommendation, without reservation."
"My colleague’s graduation was so cool – he clearly got the same benefits from a virtual class that he would have from an in-person class. I’m already seeing a huge difference."
"The impact of Power Communication has enabled me to talk to my family and really dial in on the level of their communication style to actually be effective at communicating what they need to know in a way they understand. People want to follow someone who understands and communicates well, and they will follow that person to success. I can now stand up in front of a crowd, or sit with one person, and really dial in what needs to happen to accomplish goals."
"In Power Communications and I learned that Givers Gain and Takers Lose. If you don’t put yourself out there to give, you will lose. It will help me involve myself with other people in their process, and also open myself up to receiving help. I think the world needs more of the values and morals taught by Rapport as part of the fundamentals. For anyone who may be thinking about going to PC, Just Focus and Do It."
"Within the first 15 minutes, I had already learned an incredibly important life lesson and was on my way to an eye-opening journey. I immersed myself and allowed myself to be open-minded. I was afforded a very special opportunity to learn lessons that will positively change our lives and gained an amazing understanding of the art of communication and the power of leading with your heart and mind."
"This was without a doubt the most AMAZING program I have ever been to. Breaking through one of my stumbling blocks, and committing to what I WILL do differently, was exactly the kick in the pants I needed to get out of my way and start living life. I can't wait to send my husband and grown children."
"My wife and I attended Power Communication, which was our first virtual course. It was very impactful and lived up to my expectation of a Rapport training course. I have implemented concepts I’ve learned; coached members of our staff based on newly obtained skills, and have identified new approaches when communicating with others. Yet again, Rapport has impacted my life and the way I experience it."
"What an amazing experience! I attended with 4 others from our Team and I cannot believe the difference it has already made in our decision-making, planning, and execution processes. Our team is stronger than ever and there is a comradery that has strengthened our bond. As a side note, my wife was part of the Team who attended LB2 with me and what it has done for our marriage as well is incredible!"
This course was absolutely amazing! "I learned and took so much from it that will apply to my life going forward. As Ms. Fonseca said, you grow tons when in the "panic zone" with support from your team. I did things at LB2 I would NEVER have thought I would do! The trust fall was honestly one of my biggest fears, but I overcame it and will never look back. I realized how much I was letting my fears control and dictate my life. This has changed thanks to Rapport and LB2! Thank you!"
"The biggest takeaway for me was TRUST for myself and for my team. I learned to be vulnerable and I know I have the tools inside me to be successful. I feel empowered and I am extremely confident in my ability to affect change."
"This course solidified what I learned in Leadership Breakthrough One and then I learned to apply it to a team environment. It was totally different than LB1 and it was an amazing course for me and our team!"
"This safety program is unlike anything I’ve ever done; it puts you in the now and makes safety personal. Now, I look at the individuals and their families and own my responsibility to them. It made me realize people and families are at the forefront of safety, not policies and procedures. When I realized the impact of safety, it brought value to the rules. It’s a fresh take on the way you approach safety that you can bring back and share with other people to really make a difference in the way they approach safety. BTS really ties together all of the safety, such as OSHA training, and makes you understand why those are really there. It’s about people and family. This has been the most powerful class I’ve been through."
"I learned that if I change the way I approach safety, I will get different results and foster a culture of safety."
“A person needs to go into this class with an open mind. The class makes you open your eyes to a different perspective on how you see safety and being a safety leader, to work along the rules and regulations that a person already knows. This class brings a personal insight to the safety of your co-workers and yourself. It explores the areas that a person lacks to bring the message of safety across.”
“It is hard to believe it was a quarter of a century ago that I attended Rapport Leadership International’s Teen Leadership Training. It truly helped me survive my rough teenage years with a depressed mother. I was lucky she went first and loved it so much that she then sent me. A few years ago, after suffering a divorce and the loss of a friend, I went into a dark place myself. The person who pulled me out was actually that mother of mine who understood, first-hand, and also knew how to get out of it. THE ONLY WAY OUT IS THROUGH, as we were both taught at Rapport. These principles still reside deep in my soul and in my brain. I started a business at the age of 29. People always seemed impressed by this. I guess it never seemed like that big of a deal because I always knew I was a leader. I learned a lot about what Leadership meant running a small hair studio for 11 years. Leadership is about including everyone. It is about being cohesive in a group. I came across my Love Letters from all those years ago tidying my home last year. What a beautiful gift they still are. I will re-read them anytime I am stuck or just need a little boost. In tidying, I became so inspired to help others do the same and discover their joys and passions that I, myself, became a KonMari Tidying Consultant. I would recommend the Rapport Training to anyone looking to further their Leadership skills, or just find out how life can be lived with confidence.”
"I love what Rapport has done for me and my family! They have a specially place in my heart, especially because of what Teen Leadership has done for my youngest son! My youngest son stuttered from the age of 4 years and progressively got worse as he got older. His father and I sent him to Rapport when he was 15. My little man is 17 now, in his senior year of high school, and his confidence level is at a high...And... he has been stutter free since! I LOVE YOU ALL, THANK YOU!!!"
