Inspiration Along The Way

From the time the S.H.A.R.E.™ Tools were conceived, October 1984, to the time we published the e-book, January 2014, we had a lot to wrestle with.  Our first big concern was whether the Tools worked as we believed they did.  So, we went into an R&D mode.  For the next few years we developed new courses, tested our assumptions and we were constantly satisfied with how well they worked.  Our S.H.A.R.E.™ Tools course ratings far exceeded our regular workshops and our feedback and participant appreciation was exceptional.
