I believe that the training has reduced the stress in the office to both the individuals on the team as well as to the management responsible for the individual teams ... Not only did the experience leave me with a feeling of accomplishment, but it also provided buy-in from staff, staff ownership of the process, and a path to follow to achieve our goals."
