Calm, knowledgeable, responsive and facilitating. Has a good balance between providing background, theory and concepts, and having the group discuss and try things out. Free of ego. Also a good balance between structure and responsiveness to what was happening in the group.
He makes participants talk and share their experiences and ideas and manages all these conversations within the time. There is no doubt at any point that Ryan is an expert and has practical experience with the topic he teaches. This combination creates fantastic learnings and relationships.
Ryan was attentive and flexible, and facilitated the course smoothly and with ease.
Great coach! The instructor was able to let us learn during team discussion and asking the right questions and summarize well the key points.
The course was well prepared and structured. Ryan is very experienced not only in lean change management, but also as a coach. He made sure that everyone participated in the course and could benefit from it, he also made sure no question was unanswered. The course was also highly interactive and the learnings were applied immediatly throughout the course.
