    “Jessica Braverman’s “Harassment Prevention Training” was one of the best classes that I have attended. It was not only informative, but presented in such a manner that the whole group was brought into the discussions. As Ironworkers, when we attend these mandatory classes we normally bring an attitude, show very little interest and seldom participate. Jessica not only had the Ironworkers discussing the class material, but the following day at work, they were still talking about the training in a positive way. The energy and passion that Jessica brought into the classroom, along with her knowledge, were the contributing factors in making this a very positive and successful class for us. Because of this class I feel confident that as a group we are better prepared to deal with any harassment type situations that might arise.”

    “After months of our staff trying to deal with an ongoing situation that was disrupting our workplace, we requested that Senior Management bring in a mediator to help us find a way toward resolution. Over a month’s time, Jessica Braverman met with us on a weekly basis to help us work through the issues that were negatively affecting both our professional and personal lives. With her guidance, we were able to restore relationships that had seemed to be irreparable and to move forward from those that were beyond repair. In addition, Jessica helped the group define our expectations, boundaries, and goals which has enabled us to achieve a much more amiable and productive working environment. Jessica was instrumental in our conflict resolution process, were it not for her intervention I doubt that our group’s outcome would have been as favorable as it has been.”

    “Jessica very quickly grasped my employment circumstances and advised me on essential points to include in a contract with my employer. She is very straight-forward and cuts to the heart of the issues being discussed. Given that ‘time is money’ I appreciate her direct approach that resulted in a contract amenable to both parties. I highly recommend Jessica to any one, particularly anyone wondering if a contract is even necessary.”

    Pat MaloneMortgage Industry, Walnut Creek, CA

    “Jessica Braverman did a fantastic job with her Conflict Management Training held at Sutter Medical. The group was thoroughly engaged by her presentation and they even applauded her when she was done. Two attendees expressed that Jessica’s training was the best training meeting that they had ever attended. Jessica is really outstanding and I highly recommend her.”
