I was very pleasantly surprised by how engaged in the online course I felt, perhaps having a bias on online programs before having participated in one. This course was excellent, the contact was smart, and the communication ability of the professors was outstanding.
Director, Human Resources
The professors were absolutely fantastic. I loved the asynchronous as well as the live events. Also, the video reaction exercises I found to be incredibly useful and insightful. My experience with staged videos are that they seem just that – fake and contrived. Not the videos in this program. They seemed quite realistic, even down to the reactions of different members of the group and even the problem they were solving for. Some of the best instructional videos I’ve seen.

While we all know intuitively I&D are important in any organization, many of us are clueless to begin with in terms of a toolkit to use. This program shows us the path which will help us move the needle in terms of navigating from conscious incompetence to the next level and hopefully beyond. The ability to interact with my colleagues in different areas during the live breakout sessions was valuable.
