    Notes

    Prepare for a facilitated workshop style course. There will be a participant's manual and a Powerpoint presentation as well as a variety of learning activities that will cement your learning. This is also a great course in which you will learn what other students are doing that is both working and causing problems in their organizations. The instructor often receives feedback that the discussions in the class were extremely helpful - this is not a 2 day lecture.
