Orly, your presence in the education system and in general is not only essential, but air for breathing!
Thank you dear Orly! The course was fascinating! The way you convey messages in your course was a role model for me! The insight I received more clearly was that anyone can become the best teacher and facilitator! The facilitator everyone listens to, who sweeps the audience away! Anyone can be charismatic (it’s not innate) by practicing the skills of good facilitators and teachers. Yes, even I can be one, and it’s possible!!!
It’s amazing to see how the 3 Conditions Model can work in practice. This is the second course I’ve taken with Orly Katz, and I enjoy every moment – listening to her life wisdom.
Before the first session, I didn’t know what to expect, but very quickly I started understanding the potential of this course and its ability to help me at my work. I consider the 3 Conditions Model for Group Facilitation in this course to be the basis for any learning and teaching! Thank you!
I’ve acquired lots of great tools here (this is my third course with Simply Me). Thanks, Orly, for providing tools for us as professionals – how to approach, how to convey a message, and how to conduct a great lesson.
