Thank you so much for presenting such an amazing workshop yesterday! It’s been a really helpful and motivating journey to me, as I indeed learned a lot of new things that I have never thought before. I’m particularly interested in the “green, yellow & red” chart that helps to diagnose my best condition on working. And I began to think a little bit more about “myself” in work rather than simply catering to everyone’s needs.
