There was so much information imparted that will be helpful in my career. I wish I could have taken this course 20 years ago! There was a lot to take in, but the different exercises and Desiree's teaching style made it possible to really understand the concepts and put them into practice. I recommend this seminar for men and women.

This class introduced many skills to apply in everyday interactions. I particularly liked the opportunities to practice during the class. Putting these skills to use will be the biggest challenge, but now I have some tools in the tool kit.
