I recently took training from Crystal Jonas at my Bureau of Land Management office. We were given one-day sessions on “Power Up Your Productivity: How to Reclaim Momentum, Energy and Drive and Love Your Job” and “Social Savvy: Advanced EQ (Emotional Intelligence) Principles That Every Successful Professional Knows.” Crystal offered excellent advise and tips in these two courses that I was able to put into action the next day.
Even the most productive employee and best communicator at your office can benefit from these sessions.
Ms. Jonas is a very engaging speaker and has the depth of experience, education and training that make her training sessions valuable whether you’re in need of a tune-up or a new employee in the public sector.
Thanks for the great sessions and helping me change my work habits and improve my communication skills!
Connie Craig – NOAA/Dept. of Commerce Boulder Labs
Thank you for the fantastic job you have been doing with NOAA/ Dept. of Commerce Boulder Labs. The four times you have been to NOAA, you have conducted outstanding seminars that keep the class fun and engaged with your extensive knowledge and wisdom. These classes not only help in the workplace but also in your personal life.
NOAA has a policy in place that we must contribute to a sustained and vibrant climate and culture in which every employee at every level of the agency feels they are professionally valued and that their contributions make a positive difference. Cultivating a culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility and fairness enables individuals to contribute to their full potential. Crystal’s classes help NOAA meet these values.

Crystal’s presentation of Developing Your Emotional Intelligence was one of the best training events in which I have participated in my 30 year career. Although I was quite familiar with the concept of emotional intelligence before Crystal’s session, I learned much from her. Her depth of insight–and her exceptional ability to listen to others and build on their ideas—distinguish her as a truly outstanding trainer and facilitator. And, it’s not just me who had this reaction: The other participants in this session gave her some of the highest ratings I’ve ever seen. We will definitely invite Crystal back for future sessions.
Dan Detlefsen, S-13, Scott Air Force Base
Outstanding Course Instructor! The absolute best instructor I’ve ever had the pleasure of learning from. It would be a huge disservice to Scott AFB personnel if Crystal Jonas was not scheduled to return and teach Scott AFB Leaders/Team Members from her extensive repertoire of knowledge/wisdom/expertise, ASAP! Civilian and military would benefit. She keeps the audience riveted from opening statement introductions to the very end. Never dull, always inspiring and professional while at the same time fun! If you think you know a lot about leadership, you’ll find out that you really don’t and you’ll learn in three days what it took you to learn in maybe 15 to 20 years.
Percy Singleton, GS-13, Scott Air Force Base
We just had a class with Crystal Jonas. And let me tell you something: You need to get this class done because, not only is it good for your job, but you can take this home to your family and your community. And I really suggest that the millennials take this also. It would be good for them too!
Lori A. Maurer, Associate HR Business Partner, University of Notre Dame
Kudos to Crystal for engaging a group of employees that I thought might be slow to warm up to ‘Amazing Moments-Customer Service the Notre Dame Way.” Within minutes she had the group laughing and interacting, which led to a very successful session. Crystal’s interest and diligence in learning about the College of Engineering’s mission and the duties of the staff was instrumental in delivering a quality program.

Crystal Jonas rocks the house! I first met Crystal at a workshop two years ago, and from the start I knew she would become a trusted mentor. I’ve seen her handle the toughest situations with superb skill and grace. She is incredibly intentional and heartfelt about the presentations she puts together for people. If she does not believe something will transform people’s lives, she does not put it on the market. Her coaching provides me with tremendous wisdom that is custom tailored just for me and my current needs. She has helped me make pivotal shifts in my thinking, sometimes about topics I had struggled with for years. Whenever I work with Crystal I always walk away with more self-confidence and enthusiasm for the future. It is a rarity in today’s world to find that kind of authenticity and caring. I highly recommend Crystal for whatever speaking, teaching, or coaching needs you or your organization has. She is an impact player in her field who adds great value to her client’s lives. In my entrepreneurial journey, I count on her advice and mentoring to get me unstuck, build momentum, and achieve my dreams. Give her a call, and give your life or organization the new direction it deserves.
Nicole Prichard-Hilliard, Project Director, PPCC
I had Crystal Jonas come out to speak to our students about Superb Self-Confidence. I think she did a fabulous job. It was funny, it was quirky, it was informative, and I would have her come out to speak again at any point in time! I would highly recommend her and anyone would be blessed to have her!
Craig West, Town of Hillsborough
Fun, energetic, informative. Crystal is by far the best presenter ever! She is a riot, extremely charismatic, a positive person who makes you feel good just being in the same room with her.”

Crystal was extremely knowledgeable, powerful and enthusiastic. She made this experience FUN yet informative. She had everyone laughing!

Crystal’s talk about Joy on the Job hit me in a way I cannot explain. Crystal Jonas changed my life. I realized that not only was joy on the job important, but Joy in everyday life is essential.
Dee Hudson, Director of Operations, Swan Employer Services, AK
Autumn Needs, Administrative Assistant, Randolph Construction Services, Inc.
Truly captivating. I walked away knowing that I could be a better person by putting aside my ‘preconceived notions’ and judgments of others and in turn become a happier and healthier person.
I’ve just spent the last seven hours with Crystal Jonas. And I’ve got to tell you what an amazing, amazing teacher she is. It’s been quite incredible because of the amount of knowledge she has and the way she delivers it. And I’ve got to tell you if you are considering a membership, or seeking training or anything along those lines, I’ve got to let you know that you can trust this woman’s wisdom. She is incredibly experienced, and I was taken back by just how well she presented all the topics. I was just so impressed with how she was able to impart this knowledge. How she was able to give examples, real life examples; her own examples, but also just bring it home to us, and let us know that one: we’re not crazing for going through the things we’ve done, but two: let us understand that this is the first day of the rest of our lives in the area of the conversation of this topic. It doesn’t matter how much something costs when you find amazing value and I know that membership to this organization is worth every last dime because of what you are going to learn from it. If you are seeking a trainer or a speaker, she is worth it, she’s worth it, she’s worth it. She’s really incredible. The enthusiasm, the excitement, the motivation that everyone has left this room with has just been contagious and I can’t wait to go back and take all of my notes and write it down and just commit it to memory because she said, ‘You know what, you’ve got homework for life.’ And I appreciate that because I think that we all can be learning and growing and we should be doing it every day. I’m just really excited she’s given me this kind of foundation to just go from.
Karen Gonzales, Financial Aid Director, Vista College, Las Cruces, NM
Fantastic! I have never been to a training that I have gotten so much out of!
Carolyn White, SPHR CoastHills FCU
Crystal is an absolute burst of fresh air! Amazing ability to deliver content and keep the class engaged. In my 30+ years of experience with our Credit Union she is definitely one of the best presenters. Many compliments from the participants hoping she will return. Applies real life experiences to the material and gets all involved in the learning process. One in a million and I will be looking for ways to bring her back.”
Manhad Malki, Coca-Cola Sales and Marketing Engineer, Palestine
I’m from Coca-Cola, Palestine and have been working here for the past 12 years. I’ve been the sales and marketing engineer for Coca-Cola Palestine. Recently we have taken training with Crystal Jonas about emotional intelligence. The training was great! She did very well. In fact it’s a new idea in Palestine. It’s great to have. I really recommend other companies in Palestine to go for this training. It’s really important and helps people in day to day life, day to day activity. Wonderful!
Before going through the Power of Purpose I felt like I was living in a fog, both professionally and personally. I was great at positive thinking, but needed Right Thinking. Now, by using techniques I learned from the Power of Purpose, I feel much more focused and directed towards achieving my goals and maximizing my natural abilities.
Today I attended a seminar on Managing My Emotions in the Workplace. It was amazing! The consultant was Crystal Jonas. She brought very, very good ideas to all who attended today. Particularly for myself, I do operations in about five restaurants between the states of Delaware and Maryland. She gave me wonderful ideas that I can take back where I can actually interact with my employees now, and get the results that I want to get; positive results, results that are going to assist us in increasing sales, increasing better customer service in our stores. I’m not going to ask you to hire her or to ask her to consult for you, I’m going to tell you, it’s a must! Crystal jonas, Excellent!
David Monroe, Deputy Director, Small Biz SBA
Crystal taught her course with energy and passion which made the class a lot more exciting and easier to comprehend.
Joyce B. Jackson, Director SB Admin
The training tips were spot on!
Julie Linsey, United Blood Services, Las Vegas
Oh, My Gosh, it is amazing! I think what I’m going to pull away from this more than anything is, Her quote, her copywrite, “The universe does not reward hard work, it rewards recognized results. So oftentimes, we are result driven, but we don’t realize it is the recognition that gets the results. You know what I’m saying, just take it, you find out! You’ll love it, she’s fabulous! Go, do it, do it!
Charles L. Jones, Jr., Supervisory Loan Specialist, SBA
Taught with passion and experience, Crystal connects!!!
Tina Lindell, Chief of Staff, Air and Raid Operations Center, Homeland Security
I just attended a seminar with Crystal Jonas on Emotional Intelligence and it is phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal! Emotional intelligence is definitely an area that every single person needs to brush up on. At least understand themselves and to understand others. It will help you in your personal life and your professional life, and Crystal has a way of just breaking down these conceptual theories into actual, practical applications that anyone can do, any time of the day, it only takes a couple minutes. And I definitely encourage anyone who’s even considering it, to definitely take a class with Crystal.
Ken Richly, Manager, Southern CA Edison
I attended Crystal Jonas’s class on Emotional Intelligence. You know, you can spend your money in a lot of different places. You can buy books, you can buy CD’s. You can do webinars and Frankly, I don’t think you can spend your money in a better place than spending it on Crystal Jonas’s class. And let me tell you why. The work and the material you get is material you can apply to your real life. You’ll find something that applies to you. In fact she starts off the day by asking the question, “What is it you want to get out of the day?” And then she checks in half-way through and says did you get what you were looking for, and at the end of the day you’re going to say yes, absolutely! She is the go to person for emotional intelligence training. I highly recommend her!
Erik Carrillo, Career Service Specialist, Goodwill, AZ
Crystal kept the energy in the room at a high level to keep everyone involved and entertained. She taught well and thoroughly.
Judy Heatwole, College at Southern Idaho
Hi my name’s Judy, I’m here at Twin Falls Idaho with the College at Southern Idaho. I just went to a presentation with Crystal Jonas which was absolutely inspirational for our leaders at our college. She facilitated such wonderful activities and gave us such great and dynamic ideas. I think we’re all going to leave here today feeling very inspired to go back to work and do such a much better job. Not work harder, but work better! Thanks Crystal.
Marvin Lowe, radio host, The Inside Pitch, Markleville, IN
It was a privilege and a pleasure to assist you as PC at the Airport Radisson in Indianapolis on Friday, July 29, of last week. You are, indeed, gifted as a speaker / presenter and it is obvious you love your profession.
Tammy Page – Director of National Sales–Rocky Mountain, The Broadmoor
Crystal is a genius who is fun, funny and a real delight!! The presentation (“Communicate with Credibility and Confidence”) was absolutely fabulous, VERY enlightening and polished. Her content and knowledge is amazing! “WOWED” our group in every sense of the word. Never had I received so many positive comments. One of the long-time members said Crystal was the BEST speaker he’d ever heard and many others agreed! If you are looking for a fresh and empowering speaker that will energize your group, I would highly encourage and recommend you to book Crystal.
Trevor Owen — Maryland General Assembly
Well worth my time; the instructor was very charismatic. Well done!”

Best workshop I’ve been to in 37 years!
Terry Liepmann, MS MLFT, Executive Director and Rick Williamson, PhD, Clinical Director, Fuller Psychological & Family Service
Wonderful training (“Working with Difficult and Demanding Clients”). Feedback has been unanimously positive and several of our departments have formed regular follow-up groups to review their notes from your class and to implement their new skills. Several others have stated they now feel empowered with important knowledge to improve difficult working relationships. We look forward to future trainings with you!

Has everyone’s best interests in mind. Ensures all participants have a thorough understanding of the subject.
Andrea Reif – Learning Consultant, The University of Iowa
Thank you for presenting “How to Manage Emotions in the Workplace and Excel Under Pressure” . . . I’d like to share a sample of participants’ feedback:
- “The instructor was the BEST! She employed the right amount of fun and entertainment with an enormous amount of information. She just kept going and going.”
- “The speaker was UNBELIEVABLE! I just wanted to fold her up and put her in my pocket! She knew her stuff. . . very knowledgeable”
- “Crystal was vibrant and kept your attention. . . upbeat. . . I walked away from this seminar feeling very positive and confident that I can implement these ideas not only in my work life, but also my personal life.”
It was a pleasure having you, and I will recommend your work to other organizations.
Sally Slemons, Editorial Manager
Crystal is the most brilliant trainer/speaker I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. She should be on PBS.
Shirley Martinez, Colorado Springs Utilities ADA Coordinator
Thank you for presenting “Raising the Bar” for Women’s History Month. Your sessions were inspiring, introspective, good energy, and [provided] fun information on powerful communication skills. We appreciate your enthusiasm and help in investing in our organization’s growth.
Leslie DeWitt, Brooklyn AIDS Task Force
Crystal’s approach to training is as close to perfection as I have ever experienced. She made a topic I was less than eager to explore rewarding, a joy, and personally profitable. I found the concepts taught applicable to all aspects of my life, not just my position in the office.
Kathleen from Colorado Springs Keynote
I came in feeling kind a blue, not really sure how I felt, but by the time I got through my list of what am I happy about, I honestly felt happier! And so I’ve learned that, at the end of the day, three times a week, I’m going to write a gratitude journal and think about what I am happy about.
Jennifer Esser, Director of Education, Wisconsin Credit Union League
Hi I’m Jennifer Esser, I’m Director of Education at the Wisconsin Credit Union League. We are hosting a leadership workshop featuring Crystal Jonas. She is a dynamo! I will definitely have her come back for our convention in 2016. The level of engagement with our participants and helping them further understand the concepts and how they can bring that back to work at the credit union. Just a phenomenal day, you should hire Crystal Jonas!
