"Just finished my online training course- just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for such an informative course. Your demeanor is very effective and despite being on line- I felt engaged and  my attention was captivated. Your examples were concise and applicable and I found the visual aids combined with your stories really helpful. (I can easily recall your vases and picture the sherpa helping you up the wall of china!).  Again- thank you very much for such an exceptional on line experience."
~ DaLaura, recent online training participant

What participants have said:

"I just completed Phase One of the online mediation course and I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying it. I have learned so much already. I think I am enjoying being online rather than in person as I can go at my own pace, take some time to think about the concepts, etc." 9/21/15 Training Participant

 "I was impressed with how much I learned during this process.  Before this course I didn't think I would be ready to begin my mediation practicum, but now I'm looking forward to it!" ~ Training Participant

"After 30 years practicing law, I expected this course was only a requirement that I had to check off to transition into mediation.  This course helped me to understand my clients better and taught me my style as a mediator." ~ John, Training Participant

"The mediation process was explained very clearly. For someone who is new to the process, it is very helpful to know how to start, what is coming next, and what the finish should look like. When that is laid out early, it is much easier to "place" the additional information & details that follow." ~  Training Participant

"I always enjoy a training where the instructor is prepared, is knowledgeable, covers all the material expected, considers different learning styles, and follows a pre-set agenda with still being flexible and in-tune with the needs of the individual. I learned a lot and enjoyed the whole week!" ~ Training Participant

"I feel like there was a 'take away' that I will use from every single component of the training. Thank you." ~Michelle, Training Participant
