Work With Us

Motivational Interviewing (MI) has been studied for decades. It is an evidence-based skill that is more effective at helping people change than advice giving.


MI is a CRUCIAL skill to have in your toolbox to effectively work with people! When you are fluent in MI, you experience a lessening of the effort & burden of trying to help others change. Conversation is more fluid, connection and engagement are smoother, buy-in to change increases, and clients are more likely to follow the plans they make. 


Here’s Where Bolter Consulting Comes In:

  • We empower you with tools to get really good at interpersonal relationships skills
  • We support frustrated professionals get more efficient and effective at helping people change

“When I worked for a big federal agency, I cannot tell you how many times I clicked through required training while multitasking. I’d print my completion certificate and honestly couldn’t tell you one thing about what I just half-watched. One of the things we know about learning MI is that people don’t implement new skills if they don’t have practice. Bolter Consulting provides live virtual MI skills practice groups so you can try out the skills, gain confidence in using the tools of MI and take those skills into your workplace and feel good about delivering them!”
