I though the class was good but I think the course is way overpriced. Also, I don't like the role playing parts, I don't think it is necessary.
Instructor was well organized and highly responsive
Clarified Leaders, managers and coaches on a wide spectrum
More refresher techniques. Good general reminders to continue practicing.

Axel was an excellent presenter (he did a SUPER job managing a very diverse group) and the scope of the training materials was well done.
I really related to Axel so it was extremely easy to engage in this class. He makes it very comfortable to share and participate.
The instructor, Thomas, did a good job in making it very "applied" course.
Thomas did an excellent job with relaying impactful and meaningful topics with exceptional clarity. He was a great instructor and very thorough in approaching the material. His psychology credentials were clearly helpful in his insights to our student's concerns and challenges. The exercises, while repetitive, were truly enlightening and will challenge me to apply the techniques. Thanks also to Pat for her awesome support to the class. A great class all around!
Great content and instructor. I feel like there were at least 3 key tools I can use on the job.
He was personable, knowledgeable and ran a good class.
The seminar has helped me to start shaping my own voice of leadership, being confident of my strengths and figuring out how to work on improving my weaknesses. For my future, will be of significant positive impact on implementing effective leadership, particularly its continuous practice along the way. Ann did an excellent job in teaching us the manifold toolbox of proper leadership communication and always provided useful feedback on our performance during the training course!
Useful and interesting content. Engaging presenter who seemed to have a real commitment to making sure attendees learned. Very good at managing the room (i.e., not letting individuals take topics off track). Pace was perfect - just enough detail and time on each topic. Great facility. I dud bit find the advance/prep work helpful.
This is a excellent seminar for leaders who just started or in the role for a long term
I found the course content very useful, and I appreciated the instructor's delivery skills which often demonstrated the content.
Class didn't flow like other AMA classes. To many people from the same company so discussions were more of a complain session.
The content was very useful, the instructor was terrific. She provided concrete examples from her own experience that put the material into useful context and was extremely approachable - put the class at ease early on in the course - the handout and testing was extremely useful in assessing my own areas of strength and where I need to focus my energies in improving certain skills - overall I find the class extremely useful and have recommended it to several of my team members.
Trainer was good, knowledgeable, made sure that it wasn't boring, involved every one and interacted very well with every one.
This course far exceeded my expectations. I was engaged the entire 3 days of this course and the instructor's knowledge on the subject was superb. I definitely feel that the areas where I felt I needed improvement on were addressed and I will be able to take the skills I learned and apply them to all areas of my life. Leadership is no longer intimidating to me, now that I have the tools needed to succeed in that area.
Great engagement and stories
The class was good. My only comment is that the exercises took too long and limited the amount of content that we were able to get from the instructor.
Provided and excellent environment to practice storytelling, coaching and mentoring and influence styles.
The instructor provided tremendous insight and experience. I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching style, stories, methods and personal insight.
This course not only met my expectations but exceeded them due to the level of engagement from my fellow classmates and the teaching style of Ann. She is one of the best facilitators I have ever encountered; she challenged us with exercises that allowed us to practice new skills in a safe environment. "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you." ~Fred DeVito
The overall course was interesting and informative. The instructor was terrific!
The instructor kept us engaged and kept a very good pace
The instruction was good, the format is easy to access with plenty of setup help, and the material is good. The additional materials in the workbook are sometimes thorough and sometimes leave out major points from the talk (will have worksheets but not a representation of the principles being taught). I also felt as if some modules are out of order (the modules in lesson 3 seems to be backwards) and some areas ask for answers without support (if my management style is entirely different from another, how am I supposed to say what changes I will make without instruction on how to operate like the other type?). The time allotted to activities was often short, and sometimes laughably short.
Excellent course design. Poorly structured and delivered.
I feel the instructor did a great job of explaining the material and tying scenarios into the way you could utilize the techniques shared.
I was underwhelmed by the content as I thought I would hear information that I had not heard in tons of other leadership books and talks. It was good information for someone with no leadership training at all.
The training was top notch and I believe it will significantly help in improving my leadership communication skills and overall leadership skills.
Lot's of great content.
The content was appropriate and met my expectations.
Very good self development insight
Engaging, interesting, compelling
Carole seemed very knowledgeable on the subject matter and I enjoyed some of her real life stories to relate to the material
Good material. I can see this as beneficial when I return back to the office.
The training was good. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of talented, smart women - many of whom are struggling with some of the same challenges as myself.
I thought the training was insightful and full of thought provoking material. The engagement sessions were excellent and handled effectively. Jennifer was a fantastic leader- her energy and candid approach is enviable!
Material was well conceived, thorough and thought provoking. Kirk, the instructor was an excellent educator and facilitator - very knowledgeable.
Our instructor Kirk did a very good job of keeping it informative and interactive
It provided me with in sights of my Leadership style, it also allowed me to learn new styles, identify them and how and when use one of them to my situation.
Like the way the class was thought and motivated ..
Good material, very well presented
good pace, effective exercises
Great listener, good pace over all, went slow enough for everyone to understand and catch up. I have been to AMA before with an outstanding experience last year and was happy to see that Kirk could mimic that same experience after the bar was set so high. Definitely going to continue marketing how great these seminars to my colleagues thanks to people like Kirk and the ama organization. The last seminar was a game changer for my career and personal life. The leadership voice course continued my learning to deeper understand the psychology of leadership. I am more confident to shore up my gaps when I return to work and when I leave class today in the world. Thank you AMA.
Kirk was very attentive to everyone and he helped all of us individually. I will go back to my job with positive feedback and a great new way of ideas to approach different situations as a leader.
Jennifer delivered the course objection in an exemplary manner. Her instructional expertise was demonstrated in an exuberance fashion. As a manager, I learned how to build on my communication goals and leadership traits resulting in a more effective leader in the workplace. The interactive activities and participates feedback also contributed to my overall course â€œ5â€ rating.
Well presented. Information was useful. Good class interaction.
I think that this was an excellent class that was paced well and covered a lot of relevant factors in a thoughtful way.
The course was well-paced and included the right level of detail. Ted was incredibly knowledgeable about the material and invested in our learning. Room for improvement: classrooms with windows make my heart sing, and many of the slides were confusing and detracted from the content.
Ted is a truly amazing trainer and I learned quite a bit from him. My main piece of feedback is around how many of the slides were hard to read and seemed very outdated. I also thought pieces of the video that was shown was a little offensive (linking branding cattle to branding a nursing home company) and suggest updating the slides and videos.
Fantastic! I am usually a bit skeptical / cynical about soft skills training, particularly around leadership. This, however, was probably the best leadership-based training that I have personally attended, and was very helpful for my own development. And Wendy is great! She is genuinely passionate about her field, and a pleasure to spend time with.
This training provided me with many tools to do my work. Now I feel more confident about my leadership capabilities. Wendy is an extraordinary teacher. She kept us engaged and focused. There have been many opportunities for feedback, which is crucial in the learning process. I highly recommend this course for those who are transitioning from a supervisor/manager position to a higher level.
Knowledgeable of subject area, good topic related stories, high energy presentation which was good (I never once looked at the clock)
Training was on point and effective. I would highly recommend this course to other leaders seeking improvement.
I really enjoyed Wendy's excitement about the subject matter as well as personally.
Educational, useful and inspiring.
Although I don't agree with every part of every module, I thought it was an excellent course. It pushed my boundaries and made me think.
Over all is good
Course could be 2.5 days instead of 3 days
Very informative and interactive.
prior to taking this class, I was a bit skeptical. I had concerns about the value of the training being an online course. My doubts were quickly put at ease, right from day one- as the training Is so highly interactive- it is designed to keep people engaged through the entire session.
Great class with great materials! Instructor was excellent.
Mike did a very good job facilitating the course. Navigation and interaction in the course was excellent.
A very good class really enjoyed it
I love how this class incorporated several topics that surround leaders.
Excellent instructor. Very engaging class.
Provided excellent and actionable information for leaders.
The high level of expertise of the training course was evidentâ€‹ in the organization and breath of the material.
Course had various aspects that I can bring back to work. It also followed up on some of the other courses that I have previously taken from AMA.
The content of the course was spot on - when you read an agenda and sign up, you hope that the training will actually teach you usable skills in those areas. I was very pleased and feel that I received the right tools/training to help me improve. Our instructor, Kirk, was excellent in every sense - he facilitated the type of environment in which I was very comfortable giving my perspective.
Great course and instructor. A little long, but a lot of material to cover.
Loved Kirk and his style!
Great engaging instructor
The instructor was very engaging and the three day training flew by! The information was on point and while some was a refresher, it was presented in a way which made it fresh and new. I will highly recommended this training back at the office for others in Leadership or hoping to gain Leadership skills.
Great course content, which was conveyed by John in an easy to follow and an engaging manner.
John was excellent, can't say enough, game changer within first hour; the way he presented was integral to the seminar
Instructor was great. Materials were relevant and very applicable to my job.
The written content was good, but John did a great job bringing it to life. I was not looking forward to this seminar, however, I thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot from it.
Instructor was great and informative. I look forward to attending another class led by Axel
I learned allot about myself
Content was good. At times pace slowed
Denise sawyer- Johnson is excellent. She offers amazing feedback, pertinent examples and she listens to you.
Denise knows her area of expertise very well. She has provided real world examples and engaged attendees to share theirs during the course. Although most of the time we all knew the topics, it was a good refresher to remind ourselves what it takes to be a leader and to hear different views/stories.
The course content is excellent and appropriate and the methodology is effective
Content and delivery were Well organised. Course leader packed the session with Plenty of good interaction, exercises. Participants made it even better. It was enjoyable. New friends
Denise was very well prepared and took our time seriously. She brought great experiences and stories as well as helpful resources. She is very well spoken and willing to answer questions. The course provided me with applicable ways to be a leader.
This was a very good seminar that really helped me in my career. Even though some of the examples and engagement with others did not always apply to my type of business or job Title it was great to hear about these different companies and approaches to leadership.
Dave took the time to have team interaction and not just read from manual. This interaction assisted in a general and broad understating of the different leadership techniques and styles.
The instructor made great use of professional and experience-related examples to teach course material. She answered all questions with positive feedback and was very helpful in understanding how to apply course material to our different professional experiences and challenges.
An excellent seminar - one of the best I've attended in years. Good information and easy-to-use tools very relevant to the needs of my current position. Would recommend without hesitation.
Instructor really engaged students in every activity he instructed!
Lorraine was very keyed in to connecting the material to to make it relevant for the class attendants.
I personally enjoyed the practice and the feedback receive from my leadership conversations. I am really going to use the tools provided and look forward to practicing and increasing my leadership voice. The diverse group was an interesting factor that provided different views and actions
I toke many things away from this class, it has made look at leadership differently.
Lorraine was fantastic!
Knowledgeable, Skilled Instructor. Very engaging.
Kirk Hamshur is an outstanding instructor. Charismatic easy to follow.
We had a very small group and and the instructor got everyone involved. She drove home the major points.
I thought that Monica did a great job at leading the group in discussion. Some parts of the course were hard for me to partake in because I don't have a direct leadership role but she did a good job of making me feel included
Instructor was very good
I think the course was well designed. I learned a lot of valuable information.
Great material, wonderful schedule, loved the homework and videos.
Outstanding instructor - Angela
Angela was very knowledgeable and she helped us analyze real life situations
engaging presenter, valuable information and relatable content
Pre-req. was not at all beneficial or useful to the end learning objective. With no final assessment, there was no measure of classroom learning.Bill is a great instructor for this course and shares outstanding experience with the class.
Bill was a great instructor. Kept the mood of the class very light while also being very informative/collaborative.
Course would benefit from a couple of instructors in order to get different styles/perspectives
Great methodology for relaying information and feedback to colleagues.
Some of the peer practices/evaluations were not productive. Maybe there should have been guidelines on how to review someone before the third day.
I really enjoyed the stories shared about relatable experiences or even other stories to help drive the point home.
Outstanding course with practical and applicable ways to apply leadership techniques.
I really learned a lot and Kirk was the perfect trainer for this course. I can't wait to attend more courses in the future.
It started out slow however as group became more familiar the interaction got more richer
Great course. Would enjoy to see one specific to sales leadership.
Kirk kept us very engaged in the content that he shared with us.
Very informative and inspiring. Great instruction and materials.
I learned a lot to be able to use in my career
Great training. Greatly appreciated the ability of the instructor to include each member of the class with the wide vairety of backgrounds.
Overall this was a great class.
Recieved really great tools and perspective on leadership versus manager. Axel was fantastic!
Great information, support information and suggested resources to support learning objectives.
i enjoyed Axel and his ability to bring us as a group together and make it an interactive learning experience
Love the instructor, extremely knowledgeable
Training was good. I really like the way the training flowed. Instructer did a good job and kept our attention. She made the training interactive and the result was more than expected.
Topics well selected and facilitated. Leadership skills very valuable to me to improve my performance.
I had a number of ahah moments. The power of continuously using vision, mission, and values to inspire workers.
I liked the style, and method. However, the time was not sufficient. The last two chapters were rushed through without sufficient time to learn and digest.
I was very pleased with how interactive the seminar was. Michael was an excellent leader and I felt that there were several items I will take away and apply right away.
Excellent class and extremely well presented. The instructor was very informative and professional.
This is my first online course with AMA - It got better with each session
Great use of workshops in applying lessons.
As with other AMA trainings I have attended, I find that the materials can and should be applied to various facets of our lives, not just those that are work-related.
Very informative. I would prefer a little less role playing.
It was useful to learn new techniques to write story and keep the audience motivated
confident trainer; engaging; friendly; clearly communicated information and encouraged interaction
Fay know's the subject matter and was able to respond to everyone's questions with real life examples. She also kept everyone in the class engaged through team exercises and asking everyone to share their stories.
I learned something new practically . The instructor was very knowledgeable and had great command of the material. . She made it all real for us. I learned something new practically every hour of every day of the course even though I have been at the senior leadership level for over 25years. Lots of useful tools and methods that will help me deal with workplace challenges. The AMA business side of the experience could be improved however. How about a welcome gist and a brochure. How about a welcome email a few days before the class starts. Maybe a cookie?. Thanks!
The instructor was very engaging and made the sessions interactive and relevant. She solicited real life relatable situations to apply the topics.
I was there for 1 day, due to personal issues, and the training was going very well.
This course was unbelievably comprehensive and enlightening. I ws engaged and challenged throughout the 3 days. I feel inspired, educated, and prepared to go back to work on Monday and apply my learnings. Kirk did a wonderful job to control the pace and keep things moving while also being conscious in giving us breaks.
Many great topics were covered. More varied perspective and alternative methods than I expected. Instructor was very energetic and focused. This course content and structure was simply great.
it was a very good workshop. I learned the tools to be a great leader as well as how to express my thoughts &convey my message to the audience keeping in mind their different styles.
I seriously can't believe for all the money AMA charges for their classes that they don't feed their students. It is ridiculous. You could at least do a continental breakfast and a simple lunch of a sandwich and chips and cookies. You need to reconsider this issue.
I enjoyed the training. It helps me to think at different angles. Some of the concepts clarify my mind of what I had struggled before.
Axel was great! He was extremely knowledgeable on leadership concepts, and the course material was very good. It could easily be a full-week course, as some of the sections felt "rushed" and condensed in the three days I attended.
Facility at Marriot did not met expectations. Power went out twice, AC was blowing on last day and it was hard to hear the instructor, besides it being too cold. Other facilities (Vegas, Seattle) provided snacks besides drinks. Hotel rates too expensive. Instructor didnt use material/slides, more talking from own experience. Part of the tools (influence strategy) were used and presented in different training (communicating up-down-across organization)
The training was very informative and well worked onThe speaker did a great job
I attended the first day and found that the instructor's teaching style was not a match for my learning style. I was able to understand the concepts much more clearly by reading the workbook. The powerpoints slides were not used during the training and those would have been helpful to me as well.
The course was very interactive and exercises related to our jobs
Great content, outstanding instructor, and a very engaged group. Loved it.
Great seminar.Interactive and real
Excellent course and great facilitator with Kirk. Would highly recommend the class and instructor.
I can think of three things from the class I'll be using early next week. I found the techniques in this class particularly applicable to my experience, both in and out of the office. I would recommend it to anyone I was interested in seeing succeed!
Enjoyed it. The instructor was very knowledgeable and showed a heartfelt passion for the topic.
It was really great content with simple to use tools that can be implemented in my everyday life.
Ruthe was very effective in delivering the content - I'd highly recommend this to any leader
Wonderful interractions and information throughout
Very engaging presenter
I really enjoyed this course and I've learned alot! Just a little bit more room for discussions perhaps.
Ali Hasan A.
Kirk was very professional, knowledgeable, engaging, and friendly.
Liked learning about the different leadership styles and communication techniques. I will definitely practice these in the real world.
I have never attended an online class that was so engaging and interactive. I tend to shy away from group activities and breakout sessions, but the feedback and suggestions from the other course attendees was very useful.
The instructor and producer were both really good. The material was presented with enthusiasm and expertise and the activities and materials were well-organized.
I like the break out sessions so we hear others ideas.
I learned a good deal of useful ways to present material, deal with people, and to think about everyday interactions at work. It will certainly be useful in my work.
I always get so much more out of AMA classes specifically because of the diverse makeup of the class participants
While some of the information was repetitive from other management courses, I valued the discussions. I also learned new strategies and skills that I will use back on the job
I was too workbook focused with the same types of activities repeated. Mind map, create a diagram, discuss. It just felt dull and stale to me.
More real examples and group discussions.
Really enjoyed the people I sat with and the feedback and insights I got from the team discussions.
Attentive, took feedback, and taught us how we learned.
I gained a lot of practical information and processes that I can apply to my job immediately
Dave was a great instructor
Reba D R.
The seminar was outstanding and the instructor was extremely knowledgeable. Everything exceeded my expectations.
The facilities for this class was not up to the quality that I expect from AMA. First the room was painfully small for a group of 11 we had. We were squeezed in. Secondly, this is the second time that I have attended a San Francisco class, it is the second time that the hotel has been almost $400 a night. Finally, there was a Pokemon competition (no joke) going on at the hotel. I felt like I had to show my passport practically to get into the hotel and up the stairs. The hotel staff were not friendly. After this experience I am not sure I would attend a class at this location.
Thomas has a wonderful grasp of the material, he was a star to study under. Will definitely be sending more individuals from my company to your programs.
Teds style and sincere concern for the students and their learning were very welcomed. A full three days of learning is rare. This class exceeded all of my expectations
I thought the the training was excellent way above what I thought it would be. It wasn't a class that was lectured the whole time.
There were a lot of things I've seen from other similar training (which is not bad). There were a lot of unique ideas that I can see being applied very usefully.
The seminar was great. I have several tools to take back with me.
I felt very motivated and inspired after this course wrapped up! I am eager to utilize these new skills and information that I gained to apply and lead within my organization.
I thought the class was executed and taught in a very organized manner. It was engaging, enlightening, and very valuable.
Great course, the only criticism I have is that when we were split into groups to accomplish a task, we were given too much time. Once the task was complete people wanted to move on.
Very dynamic training with great assessments along the way
Really nice training. Great instructor that created group dynamic. Good depth of coverage on very relevant topics.
Overall, very good. Great instructor, content, and opportunity to practice and interact. The only (small) downside was trying to absorb the large volume of content in a short amount of time.
Instructors methods and subject matter held my interest.
This course offered valuable concepts for application by leaders in the workplace. Especially liked the STAR model. Recommend additional group exercises/interaction to reinforce concepts addressed by instructor. Some topics were not covered as thoroughly as others, but mainly just touched on (perhaps this was by design, based on level of importance felt by instructor), and some of the related exercises in the book were not accomplished. Recommend ensuring sufficient time is built into course to thoroughly address all major topics/concepts, to include the associated exercises.
This course met all my expectations. The instructor was timely and kept the group on task. The stories and experiences were all relatable. The group exercises were very engaging and she put the room at ease.
Kay has clear mastery of the subjects taught and provided not only insightful examples, but also inspiring stories with which to relate to the topics at hand.
Our instructor encouraged participation by all attendees. Involvement by everyone one in the class was very good.
This was a well-covered training session, there was a lot of content and Kaye did a great job at hitting key points while not reading straight from the book. She did an excellent job making it relative to each person in attendance so that we would have useful tools and advise to take back to our office.
Carole is a very knowledgeable and is highly experienced
I thought the facilitator was appropriate and very professional. The people who made up my "group" were outstanding and we all contributed and participated with such trust and honesty! It was a wonderful experience and well worth the investment. Thank you, AMA, for offering such relevant and pertinent information.
Really enjoyed the class and instructor, very informative.
Ruthe was knowledgeable and enthusiastic as well as engaging and eager to share real life experiences. The collaborative work in teams enabled us to hone in on the skills we were learning and to better understand other work environments. I learned a great deal that I can immediately apply in my work environment!
Our instructor, Ruthe, is clearly an expert in this field and her stories were relevant and meaningful. Having this class in a controlled AMA environment is ideal for learning without distractions.
Carole is awesome. She is so knowledgeable. She is also great about keeping your attention. I really enjoyed spending three days with her.
I feel like there were definite take-aways that will help me be a more effective leader. John's delivery of the materials was sincere and practical. Overall, I think it was a good use of my time and resources.
This was a great experience and John did a fantastic job in leading the class. He provided very useful scenarios and practical situations in how to us the material that we learned.
John is a wonderful speaker. He is very engage and presents everyday examples that I can relate too.
it helped that the qualitity of attendees was great, all professional, not afraid to interact, but nobody was too chatty. The instructor was fantastic, covering the material in a meaningful way rather than just going over the book/slides which would have been quite monotonous.
The course was vary informative and covered what I was looking for.
This course empowered me with tools I can apply to my work environment and increase productivity.
Ted provided a lot of examples to aid in my learning of the concepts and mastery of the skills.
I thought that the course was taught from a place of great experience. Often times the training course is taught be someone without real-world experience. He provided great insights from his past and I also appreciated the science-based approach when teaching certain concepts.
Sr. Katia A. C.
It met all my expectations and answered all my questions
Mike was fantastic. Clear and articulate and always checking to make sure attendees could hear him clearly, asked for questions, and listening via both the group chat box and raised hand questions.Best of all - he was so engaging, I never felt like I was in an 'online' session, he captured and held attention. I was a little concerned about taking this class online but have no regrets and would highly recommend. The break-out sessions with other virtual attendees was fantastic! Amazing technology that was easy to use.Shannon, our producer was also wonderful. She assisted several through some technical challenges and was able to resolve quickly, allowing everyone to stay connected and participate.
Enlightening and engaging course
Great trainer and producer. Good content, exercises and interaction.
Mike had great knowledge on topic, the interaction of the class was fantastic!
I liked the training and i gain alot of new tools to use.
Engaging instructor,balanced exercises
Course started off a little slow but picked up more the 2nd day. Facility was adequate but better chairs would be a bonus for sitting 3 days in a row. Also more movement would be great - standing, sitting, groups not at tables, etc. Since outside food was not allowed in, it would have been nice to have some snacks available mid morning or mid afternoon. Facilitator was a little too Considerate and could have been a little more Direct with assignments. Class participation was great. Not only did I learn the material but more importantly shared tips, tricks, and insights from other professionals. Definitely market the use of the train more. This was a great asset to avoid traffic in and out of the city and very convenient with the train stations extremely close to class. Highly recommended for someone not that familiar with the city. (I came from Elmhurst).
Great, great tools to use!
The learning center did not allow outside food. In addition to drinks they should supply something different than a candy dish. Some people need to eat more than just lunch.The security line was long and you had to check in daily. I think you should be given a pass for the 3 day training.
Kirk does a very good job as a facilitator.
I loved it, the examples given helped me to visualize What to do in different situations
Great information to get!
Really enjoyed the training. Got all sorts of new approaches and awareness to take back.
For me, this course incorporate material from EI and Coaching class I have attended in the past.
This training seminar was fantastic. This was my second training with AMA, and once again, the training was very useful and pertinent to my job. Tom did a great job of using real work examples of the material we learned. I really get so much useful information out of these seminars. Nice job once again!
Kirk was an excellent facilitator for this seminar. He was enthusiastic and engaging, and he brought great knowledge from the business world for real-life examples.The seminar was full of solid information, that will be applicable in daily business life,
Kirk was an engaging teacher, who demonstrated the seminar principles exceptionally well!
Kirk led a wonderful, inspirational and knowledgeable class. I will definitely recommend this class to other people in my department. Kirk is an asset to the AMA classes.
Wonderful Class! Provided very useful leadership tools. I would love to see this expanded to a 5 class course so participants could spend more time exploring some of the concepts further.
John did an excellent job leading the class! He was very professional and motivated the class with his strong experience and presence in the subject area. I would strongly recommend this course with this instructor to other professional leaders.
Excellent choice! The course is very engaging with many group exercises that reinforce the content to inspire and clearly communicate. I came away learning several new tools to help me improve my writing for communicating in tough & bad news situations. Other tools to help me with delegating and coaching employees.
lots of intense work - needed more breaks! Fay was amazing, I will def take more courses with her
Very useful information. Creates a good sense of awareness for self-assessment and improvement.
It was why better then I expected. Kirk did a great job presenting
Good materials. Strong leadership by Byron. This is very applicable for someone looking to expand and develop their leadership voice.
Terrific seminar lead by a knowledgeable dynamic trainer. Highly recommend the seminar to anyone wanting to improve their leadership skills and move to the next level in their management career.
Bill is a great instructor. The class materials are very helpful. Great class.
I can honestly state it is the first seminar that I have NOT struggled to stay awake. The instructor kept us engaged and developed the topics around participation.
Great location and learning environment. Instructor was very knowledgeable, however, this seminar seemed more for entry level managers vs. experienced managers.
Great class and Thomas, was a great teacher! One of the best from AMA I have ever experienced. Leaders from all level of management should attend.
Topics were relevant and helpful in my field.
Ted was very helpful in making the concepts applicable to my role and career. I would definitely take another AMA course and specifically look for Ted as the instructor.
The instructor was very energetic and kept the crowd engaged with the course outline.
This course gave me a good understanding of various tools and techniques to be a better communicator and leader. The leader of the seminar had an engaging style and made everyone feel welcome and valued.
Rich is always engaging. I have taken him twice now and learned something each time.
Great material, enjoyed the exercises, think we could have covered everything in 2.5 days versus 3
Well run with useful tips and tools. The teacher was superb and managed the group with professionalism, firmness and tact. I appreciated her willingness to add an extra element to the program regarding interviewing. This is a key first step in selecting and placing good employees and a good leader should put time into the job description and interview process.Excellent class!
The instructors self promotion of his business was a bit tiring by the end of the class. Day 1 and 3 content was useful, on Day 2, Chapter 6, needs additional work. instead of lecture, the parts were read from the book and the exercises were not helpful.
I really got a lot out of the material presented during this seminar. The instructor was excellent and there were many opportunities to relate the material to our individual work challenges. I left each day with several "AHA" moments and took away realistic ways to apply the concepts to my job.
it was repetition of other leadership courses, there was no specific focus on the topicGood for someone taking leadership course for the first time
This seminar provided me with several tools for crafting and delivering messages for maximum impact.
The course material. the instructor and the virtual class rooms were all impeccable.
I thought Fay was an excellent instructor. She kept the class moving yet still gave everyone ample time to speak and ask questions. What we learned was very practical and all leaders should look to implement the strategies and techniques we learned.
