Objectives

"This seminar made a definite and immediate change. I actually saw people come to understand how their communication methods can affect the performance and attitudes of others . . . I have to admit, initially I was a bit worried about bringing all these folks to work on a weekend. Luckily, the activities were so thought-provoking and engaging our staff barely minded being here on a Saturday."
