The information was so much more in depth than the trainings I usually take and the instructors had so much knowledge and experience to share! I especially enjoyed the breakout sessions and the group activities that allowed us to take on and role play some of the different techniques.

Excellent training experience overall. I like the pre-read materials which not only provide some knowledge but also an opportunity for self-assess and reflect. A lot of practical tools for enhancing the management and leadership skills. The instructor was great to keep the team highly engaged.
