“Dr. Candace Warner has a tremendous ability to make sensitive, sometimes uncomfortable topics approachable and engaging for teams. She balances a data-driven approach with a natural gift for storytelling to reach audiences, create “aha moments,” and inspire action. I’m familiar with her work on developing and leading training curriculum, special events/presentations, leading focus groups, individual coaching, data analysis, and strategic planning.

I would highly recommend her and her company, PEOPLE3, for any of the above. The extra preparation time she puts in and her passion for providing an excellent experience are apparent in her finished products!”

Starting with our team leaders, we have not only begun an education process, but we are building a stronger basis for empathy and understanding.

“Our training helped us to not only better understand each other, but also highlighted the importance of recognizing unconscious bias in everyday living and the need to embrace the diversity and the differences among all of us.”

“People3 provided a training session for our team on diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias. Daniel, who was our presenter, customized the training session to our mental health setting and helped us to explore the value of diversity and inclusion among our own team at Achieve, as well as for our patients and the community at large. After an initial group discussion, our staff felt particularly comfortable in the break out sessions sharing personal reflections and insights. This helped us to not only better understand each other, but also highlighted the importance of recognizing unconscious bias in everyday living and the need to embrace the diversity and the differences among all of us. We will be continuing our work with People3 and look forward to future training sessions that will allow us to continue this journey to build new skills and enhance awareness.”

“Candace listened to our specific needs to create a list of topics to address the specific challenges we are facing. She then designed a presentation and curriculum for those without making it seem like we were complaining or being negative with our team.

They appreciated her style, the content, and especially the opportunity to be heard and interact with one another!

We will definitely be working with People3 again to develop and train our caregivers on additional topics.”
