Information was presented in an easy to follow manner - each concept building upon the next. I found the activities to be just challenging enough to test whether I really understood the concept. The instructor was engaging and energetic.

This course is beneficial to everyone and should be made part of a company's training curriculum. It brings awareness to the individual with regards to their defaults (thinking style, preferences, biases) and encourages learning and collaboration-oriented mindset.

Overall, I thought this was a great class. The pre-work and availability of the slides prior to the class were very helpful in preparing me for this class. The class itself was laid out well and the scenarios were helpful to applying the skills we were learning to see if we actually understood what was being taught.
