"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your presentations at the conference this past week over Critical Dialogues. Your content was not only powerful but skillfully delivered. I was a special education teacher for 20 years and now I am a new counselor in a very challenging district and can apply many of your techniques. It was refreshing to watch and learn from someone who is so passionate and knowledgeable. I am thankful that I was selected to be a participant in this years conference. I hope I get to learn from you in the future."
"It has truly been a pleasure meeting and learning from you. You have not only inspired us, but most importantly, you have instilled the courage to have the critical dialogue needed get clarity and address issues which are not always pleasant. You have taught us that there are five different styles of conflict management which must be intentional used to address conflict. Not one is good or bad all the time. We have to be intentional in what we are trying to accomplish."
"I just finished writing you a love note earlier this afternoon. I can't thank you enough for your thoughtful and thought provoking session. Three different people, with very different backgrounds, asked me after the session whether I could persuade you to come back again and two others suggested that they would enjoy a series of Sundays with you.
Your introduction opened the door and your brief treatment of the concentric circles in your model helped us think through the complexity of the stewardship of relationships. The real key, however, was how we deal with the relationship with self. That thought had not occurred to any of the seven people at my table and when the light went on, they understood that that was the crucial relationship that influenced all others.
We are indebted to you. Thank you so much for taking the time to be with us."
