Warm and Inclusive.

The class atmosphere was so inclusive! I often attend classes and don't have a sense of belonging, but did not experience that with this class. It was interactive rather than a lecture. Our instructor knew when to let us discuss ideas vs. "instructing" us. Persimmon knocked it out of the park!

Unlocked New Insights.

Amazingly enough, my favorite part was the ability to have 1:1 chats about certain topics or ideas that were shared in class with other people in the session using the chat feature in Zoom. I learned some things about myself and how I'm perceived, and shared similar feedback with others. Well done all around.

Truly Fabulous.

This was truly fabulous! Our instructor's inflection, ideas, examples etc. made it so engaging. She wasn't just talking at us. I always look at Persimmon training first!

So Well Done!

This is one of the best courses I've taken in a long time. Honestly, I loved all of it. There was no "filler" or fluff that wasn't specific to the course. Loved Persimmon's facilitation skills and affirmation of all attendees viewpoints. So well done.
