    Instructor was positive and energized, kept us engaged.

    Great energy, interesting examples, engaging, knowledgeable - maybe could be a bit more flexible in use of tools and add in importance of some of the softer skills surrounding them (communication, support, leadership, etc.). It's great if you have little to no Strategic Planning experience.

    I like the strategic mindset one better I think what I've found is that the synopsis of the course, though in retrospect makes sense, kinda made me feel like it was going to be a little more open as opposed to just following a process. very articulate and speaks from real experience

    Sheila had great energy and was able to relate to everyone's experience. Well done course. Could be a 3 day course. Worth it.
