Dr. Richmond-Garza was highly engaging and was able to transmit an incredible amount of material to us in only a day’s time. The organization of the material and use of theater techniques was very interesting and useful. What I’ve learned will enable me to pursue a more cognizant and consistent approach to understanding motivation.

The way Dr. Richmond-Garza conducted the class introductions and facilitated the entire seminar was highly effective. Her use of drama and making the participants part of a cast for a production was quite unique. Our class was also full of international participants. The intimate and global setting enhanced the learning experience.

The seminar was great. I really enjoyed the professional nature of the course and the caliber of discussion with my fellow participants. The concept of identity and motivation, and how that is taken into account in our personal and professional lives was very thought provoking.
