This was without question the best training experience I have ever had. I felt that the combination of theory and practical application was brilliant. The facilitators were excellent. I believe that everyone, whether a leader or not should go on this course. It is such a valid foundation to understand yourself in life and work. How Often we create stories and build walls, to have these models of understanding and reflection is a privilege that everyone should have to fulfil potential
