COVID-19 Message from Galina and VOnda

Comskil is here for you!


We understand that many of the issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic are out of our immediate control. But what you can control, somewhat, is your personal workspace. For those of you now working remotely from home, we have put together some tips to help you adjust and continue working to complete the missions of your businesses and government agencies.


Working from home can be mastered, but it does take some forethought and adjustment. While there will likely be challenges even with this - we can help. Comskil’s staff and coaches have been working from home and virtually for the 23 years we have been in business.

New Webinar!

Amp Me Up!


Craving harmony on your team, team members that go above and beyond, dynamics that produce amazing top quality work? Caught fantasizing about doing great work and it actually being fun? You are not insane. That is how we work at Comskil and how our clients work. For real.


It did not happen overnight, we had to work at it, our clients have to work at it. But we did it and they did it.


Our secret sauce you ask. Our president and CEO, Galina Knopman, researched, studied, prototyped, and continues to successfully implement the VPS (Visualize Personal Success) and OrGro (Organizational Growth) models with startlingly amazing results. The models are based on neuroscience, leadership and systems theory related to change, relationships, perspective and reducing stress. Amp Me Up! integrates VPS and OrGro, in one workshop addressing individual growth, organizational growth and the interplay between them.


Comskil’s Amp Me Up! workshop focuses feeling valued, appreciated, and motivated at all levels of leadership and staff. Your ROI is a team that is highly productive and exceeds the expectation of organization and team goals. In this workshop, Ms. Knopman will set the stage for individual self-reflection. The participants delve into self-awareness with exercises that evoke curiosity and self-acceptance, then into awareness of how each individual shows up at work and into taking responsibility for their individual and team participation, contribution, and growth.


Participants engage in individual exercises reflecting on questions that help them feel comfortable and are safely challenging. Conversations and dialog flow.

Each of us have different needs, some of us are more extroverted and some of us are more introverted, some may like to move around more or less, some work better with music or the news on or off. Some of us may be living alone, or with lots of family, with kids, parents, spouses, we all have different at home situations. How do we make this work?

There are many demands in the workplace and virtual workplace. We need to have the energy and focus to do our best work every day, to behave like a leader at work, at home, to think ahead, to keep our immune system strong, and to keep our frame of mind in check.

This workshop will teach you how to pivot from where you are into a place of productivity.


This webinar will provide the fundamentals of:

  • Resilience

  • Growth from the inside out

  • Discovering and staying in your personal balance


Duration: 90 minutes
