Word Around the Water Cooler

  • Working with StartHuman the past two years has been a transformative experience for our organization. The training and coaching we have received has been extraordinary. However, the thing I appreciate most is that Amber Barnes and her team became partners who were invested in my team and what we were trying to accomplish as an organization. The level of authenticity towards my team members is what separates them from other trainers and coaches I've worked with. They care about you as a person not just a client.

  • Simon Sinek, leadership author and TED talk facilitator says that “When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.” If you want your team to emotionally invest and contribute in the most meaningful ways possible, you need to bring the StartHuman team onboard to help show you how.  Their work is invaluable in helping leaders and teams realize their potential and truly transform the workplace. Take it from my experience: it will be one of the best investments you make!

  • TriNet’s partnership with StartHuman has enabled us to provide professional growth and development opportunities that meet the unique needs of our nationally-dispersed team. We most appreciate StartHuman’s ability to work shoulder-to-shoulder with us to co-create customized solutions and programs for our employees. We have seen positive, tangible results and an increase in engagement and skill development from those on our team who have participated in the programs and initiatives rolled out as a result of our partnership.
