"Thank you to Tess for an excellent program. I found the course material succinct. It included some helpful tools and excellent references to books, blogs etc and it was great to learn from other participants. Changing my mindset to ask ‘Yes And’, instead of ‘Yes But’ is now a habit thanks to the program."

"Tess was a wonderful facilitator. Warm and inclusive yet able to challenge us and push us to new ways of thinking. She was an excellent listener, drew out the quieter members of the group and created a safe space for people to share."
