"You kept us focused and on track..."

“Facilitating a group is a gift, and you have it. It’s not easy working with a group of adults, but you were able to keep us on track and moving forward. As a small group coordinator you interjected at just the right moment to turn the conversation back on track or to point out that the group has landed in a place of consensus so we could move on.
"Be trained, certified and mentored by the best"
