What Clients Say About Centered Leadership Programs
Frauke Schorr is a thoughtful, well-researched trainer, with keen insight into what communication, motivational and learning levers create a good organizational dynamic. Our group, collectively, was tangibly more engaged and morale was invigorated, after our workshops with Frauke Schorr and her colleague, DW Xavier Lee.

I just wanted to give major kudos to Frauke Schorr, PhD with Centered Leadership Institute. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year with our sales force, than a goal setting weekend on a cruise ship. So, we took 47 folks [on the cruise] for a long weekend two weeks ago. We brought Frauke Schorr with us and that Sunday, the day at sea, we had her go through her proprietary goal visualization workshop. The feedback was amazing! So many of the team members had breakthroughs, are ready to hit new heights, and know the milestones required to do it! Her methodologies promote engagement, interaction with customization specific to our industry intended to increase production and productivity. She is sharp and able to evoke thought provoking solutions. I would highly recommend her! Thanks Frauke for a great weekend!

Frauke provided coaching assistance to PlanV Software as we were faced with challenges in ramping up our business development activities. With her insight we were able to identify a number of performance barriers. She then introduced us to a group of very effective techniques for addressing these barriers. As a result of her assistance, we have been able to achieve much more positive results, while at the same time consuming less organizational energy. I highly recommend her assistance for entrepreneurs looking to “break out” of the grind of business development and achieve a much higher return on your energy invested in this area.

I made a … transformational shift, in no small part due to Xavier’s skill [and] generosity. … He was very genuine, capable and knowledgeable. … What was really amazing about [the session], was that he didn’t need any specific content [to work with]. That really astounded me. … It has been several months now since the session with Xavier… My awareness is expanding about myself, and whatever blocks I had have not been put back up. I’ve never been happier…. Thank YOU Xavier!

Although I have been doing an annual goal setting exercise for over a decade, Frauke’s coaching took it to the next level. Not only enjoyed it, but learnt new ways to focus on my goals. It was one of the highlights of the 2013 Teams make Dreams cruise. Thank you.

Frauke is one of the most professional, sincere and committed persons I have had the pleasure to interact with. For the past six months, she has coached me on being a leader… As a result, I have gained a much better insight into what goals I have in my career and life and how I can set about achieving them. I was especially impressed by her holistic, values-based coaching style and her ability to dig deep down and ask tough questions that helped crystallize my thinking. Highly recommended!

Xavier is wonderful to work with; I felt at ease in his presence, he was comforting and encouraging in his method, and I am amazed and grateful for the results I experienced in so short a time with him.
Gini Kalton – Co-Founder, KaltonCommunications, Foley, MN
Frauke is incredibly insightful and thorough. She quickly familiarizes herself with circumstances that surround a given business problem, and methodically addresses every aspect of the problem until no stone is left unturned. Her assessment is always eye opening and very helpful.
Greg Rublev – Director of Engineering, Plum, Cambridge, MA
Frauke has been excellent in helping me realize not only what my strengths are, but more importantly, what my weaknesses are and how to handle them. Through a personal, yet pragmatic introspective approach, she helped me reflect and identify several key career achievements and taught me how to analyze and prepare myself for current and future professional development. Most of all, she helped identify what is most important for me personally by her thorough counseling and coaching approach.
