What People Say

It opened me up to new tools and techniques that I can use to improve our relationships with our clients.

If you have a chance to participate in Esther and Don’s workshops, do not hesitate and go for it. The style of learning throughout the workshop was amazing with its simplicity yet undoubtedly difficult to establish in such short period of time that two days gives us. The setup of the physical space not as much as the emotional comfort that their approach just emitted on its own. They have set up the emotional space for us to be as open as possible and vulnerable yet at the same time have the feeling of safety. I have not experienced that style of knowledge sharing/exchange in a long time. So much information was shared and exchanged without the feeling of material heavy session. It was all done through carefully thought out exercises that almost seemed to mask that this was learning and it didn’t feel like a torrent of data poured on my head, even that it was 😉
