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
Very informative and interactive.
Course could be 2.5 days instead of 3 days
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.
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.
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.
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
Course would benefit from a couple of instructors in order to get different styles/perspectives
Great methodology for relaying information and feedback to colleagues.
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.
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.
Our instructor encouraged participation by all attendees. Involvement by everyone one in the class was very good.
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.
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.
It was very interesting to see that much of leadership is about communication style and understanding to audience.Fay was a wonderful facilitator. She was able to get our class interacting (very quickly) and really knew her stuff.
I thought the content was fine enough, but it was trying to be too much for too many people. Some of the examples felt like they would work for the manager of a fast food restaurant, others for academics, in the end I felt over qualified and uninspired. We were 10 people and it should have been a small enough size to allow for more interaction, but I only spoke in front of the entire class twice over three days and many other people didn't speak at all. I was expecting more hands-on practice, more personalized feedback about where I could improve, and more energy.All told, I think I could have gotten 95% of the course content from a book for $15. I will indeed use some of the techniques I learned in this class in my work, so it didn't fall completely flat, but it wasn't worth my time or my company's money.
Instructor Ted was incredibly supportive of the learning process and several times through expert guidance, assisted participants me included to engage in the discussion and sharing process. Ted also encouraged us to change tables each day to gain knowledge through new dynamics. Excellent program and fantastic instructor!
The class was very intuitive.The materials was well organized.Angela was very professional and knowledgable of the subject. She did an excellent job in leading the seminar and precisely delivered the materials.
You converted a non-believer to become your apostel! Well done!I'm positively surprised that the format is well suited even for a soft-skill such as leadership. The workshop is very interactive with all delegates participating. The faculty is a very good communicator, knowledgable, knows how to deal with remote participants, adds some fun, and triggers everybody to participate. The producer sets the overall scene and ensures a continuous flow. She brings people who join later up-to-speed. She was very helpful when sending the recorded version of the session I could not attend.Much to my own surprise, I tend to prefer this format over the classical classroom delivery because it allows to take the workshop into digestible chunks with almost no 'time wasters' while encouraging a high-level of interaction with the faculty and other participants. If one cannot join a particular portion of the workshop, he can take the recorded session and catch up.
Great because of the small class size. Possibly too long given the redundancy of some of the content. Videos were OK, but once was far too dated and was distracting with how old you could tell it was.
Excellent seminar for my needs.
A solid course that brings the fundamentals of Leadership to the forefront of my daily interaction with others. Provided insight into myself and how to maximize my strengths as well as tools to develop additional skills. The information I learned in the course was able to be applied easily and effectively and I was able to see positive results immediately.
The trainer was excellent, and I was fortunate to have been in a class that was all very supportive of one another. Kurt kept us engaged throughout the whole 3-day class, and taught us things we can use when going back to our jobs.
Until this class I didn't really know the difference between management and leadership. This class was a wonderful learning experience and I can't say enough about the instructor. Top notch experience that I would totally recommend to anyone looking to improve their leadership skills.
This will help me in my everyday activities
Great seminar. Several important tools were provided for handling situations in the work place. Topics were current and covered all industries. Break out sessions provided a great opportunity to learn from others and to share experiences. I have been in a leadership role for several years and always enjoy the AMA seminars.
Great tools, tips and skills. Good practices also.We were fortunate to have a really good group of students along with a good instructor. Made for a really good training.
The workshop in of itself was okay, it was just very basic and more built around communications rather than leadership. I would also suggest that you have a true leadership person teach this course rather than a physcologist; nothing against the instructor, but it stayed more in theory and his examples were really not real world. An example was his insistence on private recognition and driving home the point of private recognition. Well private recognition certainly has it place, however, most individuals appreciate and flourish from public receognition, I think that was a big miss. He also allowed people to sit when they should have been standing while they were presenting, peopel have to learn to take advantage of safe opportunities when dealing with the fears of public speaking.Overall, however, the class was very elementary. I am not being critical to harm, but to help. If you want to take this class to the next level and really have people wowed, learn, and to recommend othe
This was another excellent AMA course. I feel confident and ready to apply all that I learned.
Yasir Abdulqiom S.
The course meet all my expectations, a lot of valuable information and the coach was amazing
This was my first formal Leadership training course and I thought the course was very good. I felt it was worth my time invested. What I learned in the course helps me understand better what I have self taught myself through my experiences in management, seeing how other leaders manage/inspire others/conduct their job, and from feedback I have recieved over the years. This gave me a basis for what leadership is and how to use it more effectively.
The instructor created a very supportive environment in which each student could practicie their newly learned leadership skills in a comfortable setting. Good and helpful information for one to take to the real world and practice some more.
This seminar was what I had been looking for. It provides clear analytic tools to determine the better ways to communicate in different situations, tools to design the communication to improve its effectiveness, and practice using them.
The facilitator, Mike, was extraordinary! He kept everyone engaged and focused; answered questions; and told relevant stories which drove important points home. I would take another online session with him.
Great seminar. Materials and breakouts were well done. Instructor was excellent. Will be promoting this seminar to folks within my organization.
I left this seminar feeling invigorated and ready to conquor the world! I would recommend this seminar to anyone looking to improve upon their leadership skills! Kirk was an inspiring instructor.
The Overall objectives of the workshop are achieved.The participants were kept involved in the seminar throughout by the instructor.Overall it was very practical and targeted rather than being theoretical.
The instructor Dr. Re' was really good in ensuring we had enough practical examples to do in the class. We participated in a small groups to practice many things listed outside of book. It was really nice to go over your own leadership style and recognize it in the process, however, I felt that we over looked many of the topics listed in the book.Instructor was extremely engaging and enthusiast to teach. Her style was really good for the small audience.
Instructor Fay did an excellent job of teaching, encouraging participation and pace of classwork.
The theme of cultural diversity and inclusion should be a part of the discourse.Thanks.
All the material covered was clearly explained in great detail and in combination with the labs we did, it was one of the best trainings I have ever gone to. I would strongly suggest that any leader from the novice to all the way up to leaders with many years of experience attending this training. It has given me a better understanding of how to truly inspire people to get better results.
This is the best leadership seminar I've ever attended. The 3 days were packed with very useful and practical information, directly related to my job, and concepts I can implement immediately. The trainer was also excellent, a true role model for the topics he taught. Thank you!
It was a great experience. The seminar was very inspiring and stimulating.The live-on-line format is an excellent concept for managers who cannot free themselves to join offsite training. Everything was well organized and communicated in time.The seminar was very well structured and the assessments, polls, group exercises made it a fascinating experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and well-prepared. He completed all modules in time and managed to keep everyone in the class interested and engaged. The technical support was always very helpful and responsive to fix any kind of technical problem.I learned which leadership style to adopt in which situation and helped me use different influence strategies. Thank you Mike.
Course format and materials provided a great learning atmoshpere, and the instructer made it a great experience. Very educational and professional, I will be recomending this course to my colleagues.
The content of the course was very well structured and will always be the most important dictionary on my desk/iPad.
The overall workshop was very benefitial and I believe that it will help me mature my communication and Leadership skills.
I loved the interactive nature of the presentation. All participants were engaged at all times.
This workshop provided several different tools to choose from to meet the situation at hand. I was able to put these tools to use immediately and even provide some new guidance to some of the managers I mentor.
This course did an excellant job at helping you look at your leadership style from an "outside" perspective. The instructor and the course materials then provided the tools you need to implement changes to allow you to become a more effective communicator and leader.
This was a very educational seminar. I feel that what I have learned in this 3 day seminar, will help me in managing and leading my employees for years to come.
Axel is an excellent course leader, provides very constructive feedback, and openly shares his many years of experiences. The training material is very good and includes a lot of techniques, certainly a must attend seminar, regardless if you are a begginer or a very seasoned expert, you will something great out of this 3 days program.
The seminar was great, and I believe it could be improved if more information on how to influence and emotional intelligence would be added.
The course content and the Instructor's knowledge of the subject made it an excellent learning experience.
I really enjoyed the seminar adn learned more than I expected. I loved the classroom environment and the hands on excercises performed in class. The structure of reviewing small sections of material and then applying that material into scenerios and excercises was more helpful than just sitting in class and being lectured. We also had a great instructor that kept the course interesting and constantly moving to keep your attention. I left the training session with a feeling that I gained useful information that will not only help me lead and inspire but also allow me to help others.
Great seminar, well balanced. Left with really useable toolset to improve everyday.
This was an excellent course. As an instructor, Lorraine was fantastic. She really brought of wealth of knowledge and experience to the course. A lot of information was packed into the 3 days, I definitely felt that I got my money's worth.
I think that I am a pretty good leader but this course allowed me to see my leadership styles and behaviors drawn out on paper. There were some things that I was strong in and the assessment showed that. There were some things I need to strengthen; the assessments showed that as well. However to get to view myself as other see me was a gift and to have a template to modify my leadership behavior was what I was after; and I got it.
The presenter was fantastic, and the material covered was relevant, although it really became too repetitive by the end.However, I have several complaints about the facility which may not seem important, but actually are:1. There were no electrical outs in proximity to our tables. I preferred to take notes on my laptop and could not.2. There was no wifi so I could not check in with work ALL DAY. This is unacceptable for a 3 day seminar.3. The coffee was very cold all 3 days even though the presenter complained many times.4. The room was so cold almost the entire time I had to sit on my hands, wear jackets... This was unacceptable.Lou Piermatteo
The leader, Fay, made the group very much at ease and got everyone to participate without feeling presured to do so. She kept the course going at a good pace, while hitting all the topics that were needed.
Discovering the interplay between the four basic Leadership Styles has opened my eyes to new ways of framing and pitching ideas and projects to other key members of our company¿s leadership team. By using these new found facts in conjunction with some Influence Strategies that I had not been leveraging in the past, I am convinced my good successes will move to great ones.
Great seminar, and worth the time as long as you participate. You get out, what you put in.....
A very comprehensive leadership course. I encourage all managers to attend if they desire to be a sucessful leader.
Great Facilitator, great course and venue ... I really enjoyed being part of it.
