Linda Naiman introduced participants to a lot of new concepts and techniques that have applicability to all their “spheres of influence.” Many employees have applied the tool of reversing assumptions to help solve workplace problems since GenoPalooza.
Your workshop forced self-reflection and group discussion on a number of topics employees may not otherwise think about on a regular basis. The workshop handout materials have proven to be a great reinforcement and further learning tool.
