One of the greatest sources of satisfaction Doug has is when he assists someone like you to be more successful. Many of his past students tell him when they get a promotion or achieve something important after they put into practice what they learned from his courses. Doug finds this to be very gratifying, and it’s the reason he loves his work.
In some courses, you may see Doug's Teaching Assistant, Gigi Gonzalez actively participating in discussions. Gigi is highly accomplished and well-experienced in leading people and stimulating a positive workplace culture.
