WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT OF THIS COURSE...
"I really enjoyed the course, the course content and the facilitator. It wasn't what I thought but it opened me up to a lot more than I thought and I really enjoyed the open discussion and relaxed plan that allowed for side tracking and in depth discussion. It was effective in that it was real life based not theory based and not forced on you something that you could do gradually making changes. The facilitator created a really comfortable safe environment where everyone was able to open and be willing to learn."
