Jordan Nish ,

Eric is a captivating speaker and a great mentor

Its always great listening to Eric on the Podcast

Davajava2 ,

Known Eric for a long time...

...and I just have to say that what you get in air is what he truly is about! Listening to that was as if Eric and I were in our bible study groups from way back when, pre-kids, to chit chatting at my cubicle at work, to hikes and kids and post kids and coffee shop visits today! The word GENUINE! It is him! Eric listens, shares, thinks before reaction and GROWS with every interaction...evident in the interview with LeeAnn. Anyway, that genuine man makes a genuine person of you...worth every minute spent listening to him! Love it! Thanks Eric!

Johnny DryHeat ,

The missing link!

After 20 years in corporate America and my own journey of self-discovery, I can tell you that EQ is the most frequently missing (or misunderstood) component of relationships... Personal and professional.

Jeff and Eric are skilled at breaking this down and relating both concepts AND tactics that actually work, using digestible, "real world" vs clinical/textbook examples.

Along the way, they model EQ in action!

Thank you, gentlemen! You've helped make me a better leader, father, spouse, friend and neighbor 🙏🏼💜☸️
