What They say about Adelina Chalmers’ approach:

“I realised I was expressing disagreement in a negative and demotivating way. Somehow, Adelina has managed to make me become much more conscious. It gave me a workable method I still reuse in real life. Based on my team's and manager's feedback, they perceive me as more patient and less blunt than before." Patrick Wohlschlegel, Senior Engineering Manager at ARM
