Instructor was able to relate and relay content to classroom members by personal stories and real life examples.
instructor was patient & very knowledgeable
I thought the course and instructor were both fantastic. The instructor clearly knew the material thoroughly, had given a lot of thought to the presentation and provided ample examples of the applications of the principles to real life situations. Before the course, I was unaware of how much psychology there is behind managing principles and was struggling to find my management style. Now I appreciate there is no "one" management style and you have to adapt your style to the needs of the direct reports. Very illuminating and thought provoking.
I thought the class was very well run and had a good amount of practical examples
Refael was engaging and knowledgeable.
This Faculty was very knowledgeable of his materials, and kept the class engaged.
Thought the class could be done in 2.5 Days vs a full 3 days
Excellent information and not overwhelming.
Instructor very knowledgeable. Works well with people. Insightful.
This was a great class that was a perfect balance of lecture as well as group activities to apply the concepts. The professor was extremely knowledgeable and I learned new topics and exercises that I can immediately apply as I manage my team.
The presenter was definitely the SME in his field. Presented the information in a clear, concise and comprehensive manner. Kept me engaged in learning exercises through out the course.
I was pleased with the facility and the instructor. Harry kept the material interesting and conducted many exercises including making the class collaborate with each other. This was a great way to get a real feel for the material he was presenting.
Great instructions and presentation.
Provided tools I will use
Joe is an extremely knowledgeable and effective instructor
I really enjoyed Desiree's relatable experience and stories that she shared regarding the course material. I think this course should be a 5 day workshop. I felt like we rushed through some material at the tail end.
Great training. Went in not knowing what to expect and i now understand the developmental process and styles of my team.
This was the best management training I have attended. The instructor was very personable and really spent the time to answer all questions and gave excellent real life examples. I would highly recommend this course to any manager.
Very much appreciated the instructor modeling good management practices through soliciting feedback and acting upon it.
love the interaction and participation with teacher
Jim was a good teacher, he had experience and examples for each module which helped make learning easier
Jim is an excellent speaker and did a great job of keeping the entire group focused and engaged.
Shawn was an amazing facilitator.
Great class. Shawn has great energy to lead this class
Excellent real world examples- helped make lessons from the book seem relevant.
This class had a lot of valuable content. One of the videos on DVD didnâ€™t work and was rather dated.
It was very interactive. This was not a class you fell asleep in!!
Great course, but wish we had more time on the topics. (A lot of information to digest)
very knowledge filled lots of take a ways. Building blocks to be a better manager.
Very interactive and knowledgeable instructor. (Howard) And support was extremely helpful. (Louise)
As a fairly new manager, I found this course to be most valuable.
Great training. Instructor provided many real life examples and her personal experience on each topic. Many opportunity on role plays to practice what we have learned.
A lot of insight in to the psychee
Good class very engaging instructor. One things about the class is that I wish the pace was a little faster and had a little fluff.
Knowledgeable about material and very interactive! Liked the role playing and participation activities. It was great to hear past experience and what worked and didnâ€™t work.
I felt like this course was very eye opening and I learned a lot about management skills.
Loved the shared experiences and recommendations on various scenarios. Ruthe is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
the instructor was really active and helped us to participate. he also gave us a lot of good real life examples and shared experiences that helped understand certain situations.
I felt that Pat was great and has great experience and advice. A lot of the material covered was very useful.
The instructor really knew the material and was very effective in real life application
The second and third days were more informative.
This was a great seminar, my only real feedback would be to add an extra day to this class. It is a lot of information to cover and absorb
Very good personal and individual management techniques on how to manage employees' depending on the individual task and it's difficulty.
Pat explained everything very well. And gave me several tools that I will be using at work with my team. She had us do some hands on training of the management tools, which was very insightful. Overall the training was excellent and I now have a path to inprove my management skills.
Plenty of useful tools. Amount of material seemed a little overwhelming at first.
The course itself was outstanding. I went into it not knowing what to expect or even if I would learn anything terribly new, but with an open mind regardless. I really appreciated the tools-based approached to the situations I'll be likely to encounter, rather than just focusing on a bunch of nebulous theory. I've come out of this with some very useful methodologies to fall back on when I get stuck in the less-fun, difficult moments. I'm very grateful I've had the chance to be involved in this.On a personal note, Pat was great. I could intuit the years of experience backing everything she said and it seemed abundantly clear, having only observed her poise and calm, measured confidence, that she is a formidable woman that you mess with at your own peril. I'm quite fortunate to have encountered her as a teacher and will carry the things she shared with us long into the future.Whatever you're paying her, increase it. Keep Pat happy.
The tools and tips taught in this class are great resource for new or aspiring managers.
I thought the class was fantastic. Shawn took content that could become somewhat cumbersome into a fun, engaging experience.
Fantastic! Shawn was genuine and his approach to the material made it that much more valuable!
This was a great class and our instructor Shawn was amazing!!
Excellent class with an excellent instructor.
Shawn is a very energetic, knowledgeable instructor.
Facilitor was excellent. Had a lot of energy fun while delivering the materials. The class was very informative.
Refael was absolutely amazing. I have taken several outside seminars in addition to seminars in my company, and he is the best instructor that I have met. The context of the course was very good. I have been a supervisor for 16 years and a manager for a little less than a year, and I learned many new skills. He is extremely intelligent, however he taught at our level. He was very engaging and made us feel we all contributed in some way even though our answer may not be the correct one. Sharing his personal and professional experiences was a great way to apply the specific material he was teaching. In every module he was able to give "real life" examples which reinforced the theory. Some of the material I was familiar with, but he taught it in a different way and it increased my knowledge. The various videos that we saw enhanced the whole experience. I was fascinated by the science aspect of coaching an employee. The strongest trait of Rafael was that before we moved to the next module, he recapped what we learned, reinforced the concept and asked us if we had any questions. At end of the day he did the same thing and the following morning. This was great reinforcement.
Whether you are a new manager or have been managing for a few years, this course is very worthwhile! Don't let three days out of the office discourage you, strengthening or improving your skills after this class will be valuable.
Very interactive and engaging!
The overall experience was enlightening as I realized some mistakes I had been making in dealing with my team. I know have a new mindset and some great ideas to implement that will definitely make be a better manager overall.
This is a very interesting and exciting workshop, and I've learned something new, which open the door for me to a new area.
A well run course. Useful information and good interactions
Rafe Haham was knowledgeable, personable, and informative. I would recommend this course to others.
actionable real world material
Some of the wording for the exercises in the work book were worded in confusing ways.
I learned more in three days more open minded about more skill manager
Engaging. Susan did a good job keeping us tuned in.
Susan kept everyone engaged the whole time!
Oustanding Class. Excellent Instructor that taught material superbly and made sure that everyone understood. And if they didn't understand, he would explain it differently until they understood.
Tremendous instructor, well laid out curricula, engaging assignments and scenarios.
Mike did a fantastic job as a facilitator of the course, showing mastery of the content along the way. He kept the audience engaged all 3 days and handled all questions with ease by linking them together with other concepts from the material and real life examples.
Overall this class was beneficial. It entailed a bit more role-playing than I am comfortable with. This session got the gears turning so to speak and really had the class thinking. I enjoyed working as a team and coming up with ideas together as well as debating and understanding where others are coming from.

Many of the materials in this training are dated (2008). The role plays and examples are not current - no reference to multi-generational work forces, webex meetings, pay transparency, social media, transgender, religious accommodations etc. Updates are needed to address current challenges facing managers in the work place.
Great reenforcement and different perspective on material I was already mostly familiar with.
Deb used many stories and examples which really helped in learning the fundamentals.
Great instructor and class!
Excellent course. Exercises were very helpful and Deb delivered the content very well and keeping our interest peaked. My self and others in attendance all talked about how much we were walking away with.
I enjoyed the class and brought back some significant information and tools that I will put into place in my role immediately. I felt that Gwen brought a high level of training and experience to the class.
The seminar is so amazing. There are a lot of Aha! moments. I have learned a lot in such a short time from Gwen. Looking forward to take more classes.
Only negative feedback is Shawn over used his multiple companies he owns and how well he is financially. Heard it about 5 times each day, got old.
The course has been enlightening and inspiring, providing so many concrete ways to better approach managing a team.
Ruthe is a wonderful teacher with tons of real-world stories.
Very tangible tactics that I can put into place immediately
Ruthe rocks! Very informative and engaging.
I learned a lot about situational leadership
Very relevant training. Instructor did a great job engaging students and delivering the message.
