Testimonials from past course participants
This course put some meat around the idea of burnout and what organizations can do about it by highlighting both the complex nature of issues and then breaking things down into more manageable and specific next steps.
Engaging. Pace was excellent. Good balance between activities and theory discussion.
Realized that we need to help ourselves in order to better serve others.
