Clarification of key themes

This course was very valuable in clarifying fundamental areas, both the positives and the challenges. In other words, Dr White managed to get to the heart of the various issues in a straightforward and simple way. He also manages the fine balance of confidence and modesty in the way he presents. I liked the quiz because it made me realise how much I had understood through listening well. I also found the PDFs valuable as they built on the learning from the videos. I think it would be great if Dr White did some more work on finding a way to positively reach the people he describes as 'toxic achievers'. I feel confident that he could help them, if he did some research through group work with a range of people on that spectrum.
