Testimonials

You can best measure the quality of a company by its level of customer satisfaction. The following are direct quotations from Folke Institute clients about our services and the experience of working with Carrie Spell Hansson.

Ms. Spell Hansson is one of the most diligent and highly productive individuals that I know. Her intelligence is matched by her analytical abilities. She excels in finding programmatic solutions to organizational problems. In several of her positions, she found solutions to problems and completed projects that had plagued the organizations for years. She is innovative and inspires those who are around her. She is meticulous in her detail and thorough in her work habits.

Dear Dr. Spell-Hansson,

Thank you for providing a positive opportunity for growth for our children at the Children’s Home of Easton. The Intercultural Experience Mentoring Program that you have established truly fills a development need for our adolescents. So many times our children choose the wrong road, simply because they have not been exposed to a brighter path.

The Children’s Home of Easton

There is no substitute for the insights and advice you so generously gave our students and alumni, and we are appreciative of your support and involvment...The feedback was glowing in describing how helpful and encouraging you were.

I came away thinking that everyone in the room learned something about the barriers and assets those with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds bring to job search, to career development, to professional performance and achievement.

In the process of the online seminar I came to know and experience Carrie's warmth, diplomacy and impact. She is a dedicated life-long learner, seeking opportunities to challenge herself and the world around her.  She repeatedly demonstrated her understanding of group process by offering insights from her experience and practice in relevant and interesting ways. When other commitments and challenges appeared she was timely in letting the group know and in accepting responsibility for any delays.  She gives and receives constructive feedback in ways which help those involved move on mindfully.

She contribute[s] a sensitive and diplomatic voice to the process of understanding the full development of adult women and the issues they face.

Hi Carrie,

I hope all is well.  I have to tell you that ever since your class things changed around here. I finally had a long talk with my boss and she was shocked but happy at the same time...We let each other know how we felt and decided that from now on we would talk more and not let things build up the way they did.  Since, after all, we are on the same team...She even went over to the HR supervisor and thanked her for sending me to such a wonderful class. 

Anyway, thank you so much for your help. I hope I can see you again some time. You changed my work life in a matter of two days - imagine what you could do for the rest of it!!

Always,
Carmen Noboa-Espinal

"This has been a real eye-opener. I did not expect to get as much out of it as I have."

"I’ve attended the Dale Carnegie and other seminars and I can definitely say that this seminar really hits the target -- the best one I’ve attended. It doesn’t skirt the issue or use clichés. It gives tools for coping with real life issues. Thanks!"

"Carrie, your enthusiasm and energy are contagious."

"Everyone in the room learned something about the barriers and assets those with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds bring to job search, to career development, to professional performance and achievement."
