    This is a useful and simple course that I would recommend to everyone who has to make decisions in their work. The materials provided support the teaching style and gave me great new resources I can use to make effective decisions. Candida was an awesome instructor. Her wealth of professional experiences and her teaching style (constantly changing our small discussion groups, getting us to write, brainstorm, etc.) helped me absorb the material and determine how it could best be applied at work and in my personal life. It provides a multitude of tools you can use to help you make effective decisions in all kinds of situations. The small group format helped create a comfortable environment with lots of discussion on how the materials could be applied in various situations.
