"I really enjoyed the conflict training class that Joan presented yesterday. She is an excellent speaker and instructor and learned a lot. Even better, she really got me thinking about myself and how I present myself to others, and the different ways we communicate. I usually hate role playing, but Joan made it a great learning tool for all eight of us in the class, without embarrassment or feeling self-conscience. She spiked enough interest in me that last night I ordered a couple of books she suggested!'
