The course was interesting and well-presented, but felt quite hectic. It would have benefitted from a smaller group, or working in the same breakout groups more often. I felt the "bring everyone together" sessions didn't really work with that number of people and typing answers into the chat as it all just raced by and there wasn't enough time to take it in. On the plus side, got through many different structures and the materials provided were great and I've already used them since.

Did you know...
...the way you treat one another either helps you come to a healthy resolution or keeps you from doing so?
It's straightforward logic, but no less significant. Even in situations where criticisms are necessary, try framing them in the context of alternative courses of action so that they don't feel like attacks.
