I found the combination of the experience and the coaching to be transformational.  As a practitioner of organization development and a coach for many years, I have been through many similar training and personal awareness exercises; however, this experience is special.  It provides a view across critical areas in a unique and creative way that creates self-knowledge, insights and energy for the future unlike any other process I’ve been a part.
