Chuck Appleby, PhD
" I know it’s been over a month since the class,
but I wanted to tell you how much I got out of it, and how much I appreciated
the way you facilitated. The content is of course extremely powerful and
useful. I am self-employed and eagerly looking for opportunities to apply
what I learned. Regarding your facilitation, you were enthusiastic, interesting,
respectful, present, flexible, open and eminently practical. I am a professional
facilitator too, and I think I recognize an excellent job when I see one.
Well done! And I can see it all comes from the person that you are. Thank
you for an engaging and energizing experience. "

not found in a regular classroom setting."
