As a leadership team, we are very grateful to you for all that you have accomplished with us. You have been able to bring out things out within us that will allow us to grow as individuals and as a team. And I need to say that i am so impressed with Tony's growth. He is surprising me everyday! With all this being said, I believe, as does the group, that it is necessary for us to continue on the path that you have been guiding us on to continue learning and to encourage practicing our new tools.

As far as I know, thinking “outside the box” is a phrase that emerged about 30 to 35 years ago. For awhile, everyone said it when they thought they heard a great idea. “You mean I don’t have to tie my shoes anymore? That’s thinking outside the box, man.” So the phrase is overused, and I apologize for using it here. However, Dorothy Garlough makes you think outside the box. Regardless of whether you listen to her, or you read something she wrote, you can actually feel gears turning in your head. She has a way of making you realize what tomorrow could be like, the day after tomorrow, and every day far into the future.

Creativity in dentistry is something that most of us haven’t thought about, but after partaking in Dorothy’s program, I see that it is key to success. Gaining skills that enable us to re-learn how to be creative is the currency of businesses today. This course offered us skills that promote us looking at challenges in our practices from a different perspective and in a creative way. It was engaging and interesting, promoting critical thinking and collaboration. As President of HPDHS, I would highly recommend this program.

Dorothy’s presentation on Developing a Powerful Culture through Diversity was valuable and well received! The Thunder Bay Dental Hygienist Society found Dorothy to be a strong presenter. Her perspective gets others to think and her program helped us realize that diversity in the workplace is a SMART thing to do The implementation of the ideas will advance the culture in any office. I would recommend Dorothy to others and you will not only learn but you will also be inspired!

Last but especially NOT least, I want you to know that I’m sooooooo grateful to you, Dorothy Thompson Garlough, for being my friend, partner, and supporter. I admire the diligence with which you stick to our process, your flexibility to adjust as needed, and, most of all, your courage to change and converse about challenging topics.
In the Influencer Course, I had to list role models that had influenced me in specific ways. A nice surprise surfaced in my mind: YOU! I’ve known that you’ve been an inspiration since the moment I met you but I had not realized you had been an influencer. The Toastmaster that I met more than 6 years ago used her voice to express such genuine and passionate content that I realize today that your manner sparked the awakening of my authenticity. Yes, you have influenced me to be a better version of me!
THANK Y♥U from the bottom of my heart for being the true and truer you in all you do!LUVU tons

"Dorothy’s course offered a unique and fun opportunity for our staff to work on team development outside of the office. Instead of focusing on an outcome, we started emphasizing the process, and were able to develop a good understanding amongst all members of our team about what makes our office work. It was a chance to gain some perspective on how to better our team.What's this item about? What makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention..".

Thank you Dorothy for all you did for Dad. Physically and spiritually. He spent the last two months in the hospital after the stroke that he took while at the cottage. I am so grateful. xo
