Graduating with a Masters in Social Work, I have studied behavior change for years.  I was introduced to a new communication method when I was being "raised in the addiction field", called Motivational Interviewing.  From that time, I fell in love with the process and how it's evidence based methodology truly impacts and creates change.  Back in 2010 I started the Institute for Individual and Organizational Change to help leaders and companies impact outcomes through the way they communicate.  We teach classes and courses on Motivational Interviewing that are customized to our clients either in person or online.
