  • The Course was really great! It was easy to understand with the videos and lot of great things that apply to our work and personal life. After this course I will be able to improve my Work Life Balance. Anonymous
  • The content was simple and good, yet reached depth beyond what I expected. I was taken back by the science behind simple concepts and the impact it can have on how we live and how productive/successful companies can be when intentional plans are put into place. The list of powerful corporations that have gained an edge due to the implementation is impressive. I think the content can be applied to daily life as well as the number of hours we dedicate at work. This course caused much reflection for me as I reflected on how I work/interact with others.
