How did you become involved with OCL?I took the CST course to evaluate its potential as an offering for my agency. Little did I know how impactful the course would be on my life. My communications, especially listening, have improved so much that I find myself speaking less in my everyday conversations (an amazing feat for me!) and understanding more of what is really being shared.
What is your hope for OCL?I hope that the skills and awakening in CST that I experienced can be shared with all. I believe OCL is the way to make our world a better place, one person at a time; it enlightened me, and my hope is that it will for you.
