"I can't say enough great things about Barbara and everything Launch has done for our business. In just a few sessions, our team building skills have improved as well as our profit margin. Launch uses several interesting tools and techniques to not only help your business itself, but also helps your employees set professional goals as well as personal goals - both show a huge reflection in an employee's day to day work life. I would recommend this style of coaching to any business that is serious about success. Thanks Barbara and everyone from Launch!"

Barbara exudes positive energy as she helps teams realign and gain focus on what is important to the team and motivating for the employees. She assessed our team using Clifton Strengths and conducted individual and team meetings helping to articulate our core values. We had an amazing team experience at our business retreat in Flagstaff. There Barbara worked us through a values and mission workshop that fully expressed our underpinnings and guide us as we work every day on improvements. Her insights and use of the Clifton Strengths was instrumental in making a new hire in 2019, who has turned out to be one of the key elements in our growth and success. Thank you, Barbara for your excellent coaching!
