Dr. Shirts recommends the program very highly.
Participants work 12 hours a day for 6 days. They do not reveal
their names, vocations, or titles until the last day. They receive
feedback on their style from the beginning to the end. In Dr.
Shirts words, "It is the most effective training program I have

training world who truly practices what he teaches. He is the
world's best listener. He is offering a series of training programs
