The course is amazing. It is very engaging with so much information on both personal level and professional level as a GP. It gives full information about coaching plus so many other resources that one can use.

I found this course to give me all of the basics that I need in a very structured and organized manner as a GP.

I know that when I am finished I will do an awesome job as a GP because I have been coached and I see the transformation that it has done for me.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone considering a career as a GP, or just wanting self-improvement.
