I am often asked about the difference between stage 1 and stage 2 and whether I recommend taking them both in one go over 4 days or split them over two sessions. Stage 1 gives you the basics and how to use LSP for team building. Stage 2 gives you the full scope of what is possible with the LSP method.
My recommendation is to take both Stage 1 and Stage 2 in one go, if at all practically possible for you. The value you get from doing that is significantly higher than first taking Stage 1 and then later on Stage 2.
