Joanne Cohen, Managing Partner, CTAT, LLC, Senior Organizational Consultant
“I have designed and facilitated corporate team-building, leadership development and stress management workshops for nearly 30 years using the first version of the Revolutionary Agreements, developed in 1985.
When these Agreements are practiced diligently, people can be more proactive and less reactive to the daily challenges inside and outside the work environment. Once we learn to communicate more effectively and manage our stressors, we are able to tap into a vast knowledge that is available to each of us; and we can express that knowing from a more powerful place. Multiply that by a whole team operating together from such a place and the possibilities are limitless.
My mission is simple: to be of service, to create value for others and to be part of a positive cultural change, one person at a time. I firmly believe that change begins with me, and to that means and end, I continue to practice the Agreements to which I was introduced nearly 30 years ago.”
