"Conflicts can steal precious time from small business managers. Ghislaine Labelle has had years of personal experience and exposure to conflict resolution, and she brings great insight to MBA students enrolled in Managing a Small Business Enterprise program at McGill University. Her style and vast knowledge, seamlessly combined in her presentation, had a significant impact on the MBA students. The discussions that are engendered are always lively and to the point. Increasingly, MBA programs must rely on this kind of real-life expertise for the training and the development of tomorrow's leaders."
