PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING AND CONSULTATION SERVICES
I constantly strive to balance the five basic dialectics: giving knowledge and facilitating understanding; theory and application, helping and challenging; maintaining rigour and encouraging creative experimentation; and respecting and supporting a wide diversity of audience and audience needs while maintaining balance and fairness.

Underlying team ethos, assessment and data procedures,
Reaction of team to feedback,
