I love the concept, that you really showed us the value of asking questions and integrating that as a core component to design and facilitation. It showed this course really goes above and beyond the visual aspect.

The content was of high value - the different aspects of questions and the anatomy of them, is a great insight into how you ask, not only big, but also narrow and specific questions to help move a process forward.
