    Given the sensitive subject matter, a little less interaction might have helped me absorb the content of the course rather than put me on edge. The facilitator seemed a little "off" like she was sick or something. She could be very condescending on times and it made me uncomfortable. She could have used a better tone with the 3 students in this class.

    Overall the course was informative and provided me with information that I can apply to my work environment. I am pleased that I took the course. Franca was a very knowledgeable and enjoyable instructor. She provided real life examples of how we can use the material to benefit us in our daily lives. I enjoyed her as a facilitator. As my first course with CMC, I found it very enjoyable and a great learning experience. The instructor made the 2 days very enjoyable and effective.

    The facilitator was sensitive to the fact that introversion is often negatively viewed. I appreciate that she made it clear the purpose was not to become extroverted, but rather to find ways to be an introvert in an extrovert-focused world
