“I’ve played with ‘Yes, and’ before, in different contexts, and this is the first time I get what ‘Yes, and’ means! I watched as the group embraced it and applied it, and I saw how it helped us grow as leaders and communicators.” – Joan Bluestone Landorf

“I consciously employ additive communication practices frequently. It has made an observable difference when engaging with folks who are notorious for being ‘difficult’ to communicate with, and it has generated a sense of cohesion and camaraderie with others.” – Katrina Hoffman, President/CEO, Prince William Sound Science Center
