“I am writing a business plan and pinpointing my passion” – 2014-2015 SVLA Change Agent
“SVLA has sparked incredible growth within my relationships with family and friends. I have opened my heart to share more of myself and to listen to others share their feelings and dreams. I have learned the importance and power of 100% presence when sharing time together and how it communicates worthiness to the people we love the most. My perspective shift is discovering that the best way to show others how much you love them is to love myself first! Sharing roles within a family as a partnership is much more empowering and healthy than assuming all responsibilities on oneself, in other words offering the opportunity for all members of the family to embrace leadership roles is very empowering and productive!” – 2013-2014 SVLA Level 1 Grad
“I changed the way I run my team meeting. Expressing…there is the possibility that positivity can be another way to live. I gained a new perspective or realization and found new things that motivate me.” – 2014-2015 SVLA Change Agent
“I am using more positive communication and gratitude in our staff meetings which has shown greater participation among team members. I am moving forward into my passion (dream job) – actually doing action steps to make this happen.” – 2014-2015 SVLA Change Agent
“I am much more \"present\" while at home and in the workplace. We definitely have improved positivity and the ability to change perspective both at home and in the office.” -2013-2014 SVLA Level 1 Grad
