“I’ve had the pleasure (and I do mean pleasure!) of being part of Performance Consulting training given by Cathi Doebler. She has a friendly, outgoing personality that makes her very approachable, and her style of training helps participants feel more at ease with what could have been very dry subject matter. She made it come alive by taking the time to get to know each individual and related the training directly to our work. I especially found the time spent in the one-on-one coaching sessions to be valuable to me, causing me to take a different approach in problematic situations. I look forward to future training sessions given by Cathi!”
-Janet Falk, Sr. Staff Development Contract Monitor, Dept. of Social Services (Erie)

"Cathi Doebler is a gifted and witty group facilitator leading businesses and organizations in creating a culture of 'partnership' in a 'stratified system'. The model she uses and the learning process she employs in her training session is insightful and applicable to all group systems - for-profit and not-for-profit. Let’s face it, the positions we take in a work-system can be negatively muddled by miscommunication, assumptions and anxiety. Cathi will help people come to an understanding of better behaviors which will ultimately improve the efficiency of any office, business or religious organization."
-Chris Wicher, President, Eastern District Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod
