    The facilitator was very nice. I would have enjoyed a more lively facilitator especially on a 2 day course. I think an hour lunch was too long. The facilitator should have asked if we were willing to cut down the lunch time.

    I believe more emphasis should be placed on discussion and real life application. Also more time to be spent on linking the different steps together.

    The content was at a very beginner level. I think it should be marketed this way. I did not think Franca was a very respectful facilitator. She created an uncomfortable learning environment. She was inflexible, impatient, and even rude at times. She was unable to time manage herself and had to rely on the group to come up with strategies to help her. We spent 30mins on day 2 helping her decide which strategy to use. This is not a good use of 20 professionals time. She also put people on the spot, was abrupt and treated participants like they were children. The facilitation of the course was hugely disappointing. I would recommend to my organization that we do not continue to take courses from your organization.
