Opens our minds to problems and reminds us to slow down.


I found our two instructors were very informative in a relaxed atmosphere. They kept our attention throughout the day.


An informative and valuable course for all grades, and can help in our everyday life both in and out of the office. A non-‘stuffy’ course. Made us feel at ease.


We are dealing with more and more people who have a poor command of the English language. The course helps to convey to you how customers may feel. Helps you to choose your words more carefully or simply, and deal with stress.
