What Participants are Saying

I feel honored to have been a part of this process… Probably the best course I’ve been on in my 20 years as a police officer.

Awesome! It really was. I was challenged at so many levels and learnt so much. You gave some fantastic facilitation. You honoured us with your knowledge and practice.

I must thank you for inspiring me in this course. The principles and objectives make so much sense, and the logic so clear that it feels that almost anything is possible.

Thanks for all your help and wisdom. With the tools you gave us to work with, I think now our relationships at work will improve dramatically.

My expectations were high and were exceeded. I am taking away so much to work with and build into my practice, and am excited about continuing to share our learning amongst our group.

If all staff… were able to take this course we would work in a perfect world.
