Very well presented and the discussion was well developed by the moderator. One issue which was only mentioned once by Ms. Belveal and I believe needs a stronger emphasis is that sometimes you just have to walk away from it all. Most of the time when you realize that you've got a conflict you are already to far in to continue. Harsh outcome for everybody but sometimes it must be done.
Excellent course. Panel was direct and to the point. Didn't meander and didn't tell stories that failed to contribute to the course.
