I was intrigued with all of these power points, I am planning to incorporate them for both home and work environment. It made a positive impact in the way to look at situations in different perspectives, rather than just having a fixed mindset.

I appreciated the tools provided to help with behaviors. I like the activity recommended to ask ourselves why the person may need to d something and also I appreciated the conversation to help us look at behavior from a different perspective
