  • The session was wonderful and my mind is already going a mile a minute – can’t believe how fast [the] hours flew by. I appreciate your help in also working through the concerns I have in conducting productive solution sessions here and my own effectiveness. You certainly made working through one of my biggest challenges approachable and, dare I say, fun.
