Kathy A.

An excellent course – appreciated the great training + the abundant resources provided. Many strong learnings. I would highly recommend this course

Debbie C.

I think this training is relevant to anyone who attends meetings in general, not just facilitators. An attendee can use these techniques to re-route a meeting that has gone off the rails even if the "official" facilitator does/can not.

Dr. Shane T.

Thought this was an excellent course that I wish I had done 10 years ago, and it would have helped me be better overall. Dr. Shane Taylor
