We wanted to thank you for designing such wonderfully individualized training sessions. You both did an outstanding job making us feel comfortable enough to take risks and open ourselves up to criticism and we felt ok about accepting ownership for improving. All of us are excited about working together to make our 'community' a great place to work. Thank you again for providing us with such a wonderful opportunity."

Conflict Management Coaching Training
I wanted to take a moment to call special attention to Pattie Porter. I am sure you know what I am going to say, but to reiterate, she was incredible! Both as a coach mentor and substitute instructor, Pattie exceeded even my highest expectations through her approach and her observations of areas that I could improve upon. She was always three steps ahead of me in our coach mentor sessions, and I am incredibly grateful to have been one of her mentees. It was very valuable to have the mentored practice coaching sessions, but Patties insight really set this whole experience over the top!"
~Ryan O'Connell, VIAConflict
The importance of understanding that it is up to the parties to come to a resolution...not the mediator. Prior to the training, I saw 'resolution' as the mediator's responsibility...The role playing worked best for me. It gabe me an opportunity to see theory in practice...the quality of the training we received was outstanding!"

This training was an excellent, well-balanced blend of didactic and experiential learning. Pattie, you are a very thoughtful, skillful and engaging program planner and presenter!"
