Dr. Joti Samra is brilliant when it comes to group presentations about workplace psychological health. She brings an easy to understand but also in depth knowledge to the table when talking to our employees about a multitude of topics, most recently Positive Coping with Stress: Making Stress your Friend, Effective Communication Skills, Maintaining Work-Life Harmony During Stressful Times, Enhancing Personal & Workplace Resiliency.
I would recommend anyone looking for leadership training, workplace psychological health workshops or personal therapy sessions with one of her associates, to contact one of her team members.
Dr. Joti Samra is a consummate professional and a knowledgeable subject matter expert. She worked with our team to produce a series of videos for the Not Myself Today program and they have been a huge hit. She is a joy to work with and a wonderful partner!
We were lucky enough to work with Dr. Joti Samra when she delivered a manager training session on managing psychological health in the workplace. Prior to the training, Dr. Joti Samra and I met so she could understand what our organization wanted to get out of the training for our managers – and she was able to truly comprehend this and tailor the session so our managers could get the most out of it. Dr. Joti Samra is an excellent subject matter expert and is able to articulate and demonstrate the practicality of this huge topic. Our managers walked away with an in depth understanding of their responsibilities, performance management tips and lots of takeaways that I have already seen in use throughout the organization. After the training, she followed up with resources we asked for plus many more useful and helpful resources and links.
