Feedback from workshop participants
“I have always felt the need to speak when there is silence. I have learned to give people time to process and I have slowed down.”
“I tend to ask more questions – and follow up questions – to get someone’s whole thought process. I used to think my role as a manager and as a teacher was to teach, and I have learned much more (and my peers have too) by asking questions, and starting conversations, instead of telling what I thought I already knew as a fact.”
The workshop fee of $1,895 includes all materials, course instruction, and lunches. Enrollment is limited.
