This was a valuable and broad spectrum exploration of the human dynamics that influence the quality, awareness and depth of our relationships and decision making! Thank you.

This was very informative, and I learned a lot personally as well as for corporate and control settings. Means numbers and emails. There are times when it felt like we were moving quicker then it would’ve been helpful. Sometimes it would’ve been more helpful to go a little deeper by wanting to get through the content rather than hold things up.

“Real Essentials Connect” is an energizing two-day experience with The Center of Relationship Education. I left the workshop with tangible frameworks and actionable next steps that I can bring back to my company. I believe this workshop will empower my colleagues to connect with each other in more meaningful, intentional ways.

Excellent and practical training. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it wasn’t “soft/fluffy” training. It was practical adult learning that would fit into and corporate or business learning program.

Real Essentials Connect couldn’t have launched at a more critical and relevant time, providing corporate teams with training to enhance connections both in the workplace and at home. The content and facilitation was done to perfection, providing both trainers and participants with the tools and materials needed to bring the lessons to life in a manner that can be implemented and practiced.

This training experience was life changing. We were given practical tools and strategies to implement with teams, in our workplaces, with couples, and even in our own relationships. There was plenty of time to connect with others in our training- which was an added bonus. Moreover, it was valuable to share and listen to stories that brought the modules and lessons to life. I would highly recommend this training to others who View More
