Steve, I have just gotten around to listen to your tele-seminar with Susan Wilson. It is fantastic! A really great “living” example of facilitation. The notes are great and I loved the fact that Susan’s “tips” were based on experience, not theory!
–Elaine Wylie, Coach/Trainer–
I REALLY enjoyed this teleclass. Susan, you are so clear in your approach to meeting facilitation and seem to have encountered just about every situation possible! You seem to role model best practice in your discussions of how to handle difficult situations and you have many creative and innovative ideas to connect with your group and then assist them in achieving their goals. Thanks for a great class!
