Patrick was such an engaging and relatable instructor who kept the course interesting and relevant for both the work environment and personal life. The course content was excellent as well.
The seminar was amazing and our speaker was truly an effective trainer!
This class was one of the best I've ever taken and the instructor (Patrick McWard) was amazing too.
This class was very informative and very educational. It allowed me to take the tools and knowledge from that training course and try to apply it to my daily life both professionally and personally.
I thought the curriculum was very rich and rigorous. I was more interested in Habits 1-3 than 4-6, but all was useful. I'm enthusiastic about committing to the habits. The instructor was extremely committed and passionate and wanted her participants to excel. That said, she sometimes wasted too much time with the democracy of having everything be vote (about whether or not to leave early, etc.). At other times she was very controlling about the energy of the class, which was useful in that one participant was very needy. While she was overall highly effective, the vacillation between the two was a little disconcerting
This seminar exceeded my expectations. The instructor was excellent and I very much enjoyed the material. I have integrated a good deal of it into my daily life and have noticed that I am both happier and more effective in my work life and personal life.
Overall the course content was good. I think though what really made the course effective was the instructor. I really liked Deb to the point that I would seek out courses taught by her. She was so much better than the other instructor I had in San Diego on a project management seminar. I would love to find out what seminars she specifically teaches
Excellent instructor, who stimulated a lot of group activities. The pace of the seminar was good. A lot of take aways which should make me more effective in business and privat. I really can recommand this seminar
Useful tools for both business and personal life...I look forward to applying these skills and mindset at work !!
I really enjoyed the class and found the material very helpful. I have already recommended the class to several of my colleagues.
Instructor and facility was great. However, I was very upset with the lead manager for the facility who gave me attitude when I asked him about seeing what I could do to get my parking validated. Nothing on my welcome letter stated that there was no parking on site and that I would have to pay $22 per day. The manger was rude, did not even consider what I had to say, and did not even attempt to address my issue/concern. This was a poor reflection AMA, mainly because of how rude he was.
The small class size we had of three people allowed for a very intimate experience.I thoroughly enjoyed the class materials. I wish there were even more resources I could review!
Janine was amazing. She probed us to open up and led us in a fun and inspirational way
The course opened my eyes to a lot of new things, while affirming some ideas and principles that I already new to be true. Each day I felt I learned multiple new skills that I was ready to implement immediately, many of which are already having a positive impact on my life.
The course material was good, however we weren't able to get our assessment results prior to the course, which is critical to understanding the changes we need to make as we go through the course. By not sending the assessment results, you severely limited the growth of the attendees. As we went through the materials, everyone kept commenting about how nice it would be to know where they were on that skill in relation to where they want to be, but that wasn't possible due to poor AMA follow-through. I would recommend the course to others, but would recommend taking it directly through FranklinCovey because their support seemed much more effective.
Instructor was excellent. AMA pre-course notices were not distributed in a timely fashion.
The class was extremely organized with a good flow. The instructor was wonderful and took the time to listen to everyoneâ€™s questions. She really got to know us and was able to use specific examples of how to apply the 7 Habits in our own work and personal life.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and very engaging. Led me to my "aha moment ".
Excellent Course!! The material provided and the instructor's presentation were top notch.
Class was very informative. Insightful ways to improve the daily struggles to achieve results.
I thought the class was excellent. The exercises we did during the class and the video clips were so enlightening.
Jen just a great consultant, I'm very happy to attend her seminar
Pauline kept the class motivated, engaged and interested. She was a great inspiration for me!
Very engaging and helpful class. I will remember this for a lifetime.
Pauline was an excellent instructor and kept the class engaged and lively through her excellent presentation style, mix of media, and standing/moving around on certain exercises. Even despite the temperature control issues in the room (A/C was out), she kept us on track and focused throughout.
the course was very well balanced between the book, videos, and interactive exercises . the course went very fast and was very rewarding
I think this class was a good experience in opening my eyes to the importance of work-life balance.
It was a very helpful class. It flowed very well together.
The material and pace of training were excellent.
The room temperature was occasionally too high, making it a bit of a struggle to concentrate - especially after lunch
Please make sure that the training begins and ends on time. Several days we went long which caused me to be late to meetings afterward. Also, this instructor presented the common misconception of what introverts and extraverts are, which is very different from the actually definition of these terms.
The instructor was very detailed and engaging.
This was a truly inspiring live webinar. Thank you so much!
Lots of opportunity to do interactive exercises and apply to our own situations. Practical.
I enjoyed the content and videos of Dr. Covey himself. A true optimist, loved his way of thinking. Joe was very informed and cared about what he was teaching. I enjoyed this work session/webinar very much.
So much to think about and learn. I'm looking forward to inmersing myself in the process of necessary changes.
Attending the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was a dream come through. I was first given the book in the mid 1990's. I found it helpful. However, I had always wanted to take the course but did not have the resources or opportunity. The minute I was presented with the opportunity I took it! I'm so glad I did.
I love the interaction between the book and the class activity.
The instructor was on point with his information and the classes materials were appropriate, The classroom and attendees were just enough. I really enjoyed attending and I am putting everything I received into practice.
Excellent program. Love the Franklin Covey courses. Great structure and format. Videos very helpful.
Love the class it was very informative and definitely insightful
I just want to say "thank you" for making me realize the things that are important in my life and how I can better manage my time so that I have more time to spend with my love ones.
Mr. Wiess was an excellent instructor..
Kurt is the epitome of professionalism. He knows his topic well and manages his audience with gentle dynamics. His interjections from personal experience are well placed, relevant and interesting. He is a good representation of what I believe AMA (or any organization) seeks in the corporate arena.
This course has helped me to gain valuable insight in myself. Kurt Weiss is extremely effective at delivering this course!
This class truly changed me as a person. I didn't expect to come into the class and receive what I did. I was concerned about not continuing with the practices from the class once it was over, but what really helped is the app that sends you notifications each day and it helps you keep the concepts in mind. I recommend this class to anyone who truly wants to unlock all the power they have within themselves.

The class had a very diverse audience. Our course lead was sensitive to participant concerns and viewpoints. She synergized the differences and helped us all find the commonalities that strengthened the lessons learned for the coursework. Timing and pacing were spot-on and we were able to maximize our course work and got to know our neighbors. Each step of the 7 Habits was reviewed and separated into the workings that make them powerful change tools. The emphasis was appropriately placed on the class, each individual learned to understand their insight and justification for the type of change necessary to be successful with the 7 Habits and ultimately their effectiveness.
Pauline is one of the best instructors I've ever had for a seminar. The content was thought provoking and well structured.
Great, effective class!
I enjoyed the experience, very enlightening looking forward to practicing the techniques.
The seminar was informative and enlightening. I would have liked more time discussing each of the 7 habits and a more thorough recap would have helped to solidify the principles for me. I enjoyed the instructor as she was very pleasant and had a genuine energy.
Joseph lives by the 7 Habits. He shared his own experiences during our working session which gave proof to the work of Stephen Covey. I would both recommend this course and Joseph as an instructor to others without hesitation.
The techniques can be applied to both business and personal lives.
Kurt was very knowledgeable and very informative. He provided very good information and kept it very interesting. This has been one of the best seminars that I have taken. The material was very useful and I will go back time to time and use them as a reference.
The instructor was engaging and knowledgeable. The class was inspiring both personally and professionally, that will have a lasting impact on my life. Best class I have ever attended!
I felt this was kind of generic information and way to much group break out sessions between attendees.
the instructor was fabulous! Great interaction with the class with a great and upbeat personality. Enjoyed working in groups, this gave a way to meet other people from different backgrounds and work experience.
I enjoyed the seminar. It was a pleasure being surrounded with like minded individuals. Patrick was so informative and patient. I left the class feeling like I had received some very valuable tools.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Signature Edition 4.0 seminar was life changing for me. The course content is effective, motivating and inspiring. The facilitator (Tracy) was fantastic and encouraged an open dialog and a team learning environment.
Great development of the 7 Habits - really helped me focus on how to apply the book.
The Speaker was excellent. He was very passionate about this course. This was a great program.
The Signature Edition 4.0 seminar brings to life the principles and practices taught by Dr. Covey in his classic book of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The combination of the well laid-out content, impactful videos, facilitation expertise, energetic participation of the students, and the individual and group activities provided a safe and effective learning experience. The challenge now is to carry through with the commitments made in the seminar and to practice the 7 Habits... so that they can truly become habits!
The app is a wonderful daily tool to utilize and establish these habits. What I have found though is that the app for Droid does not default to the correct day, but works well on the iPhone. For the iPhone, you do not have the option to submit your mission statement to the community, but you can on the Droid. I recommend that the app developers sit down and compare both versions to ensure that they are mirrored and then send an update to correct the issues. Overall, the course was phenomenal and I have received information to help to use my strengths to build up my weaknesses.
The class was not what expected at all. I honestly thought we were going to go over the book and have the habits read to us, instead it was a very well orchestrated personal journey with an instructor that was phenomenal.I can highly recommend the class to anyone in a leadership roll.
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire course. I learned a lot about myself. It was very informative and helpful not only for work; but, also for my personal life. The instructor was awesome--calm, straightforward, witty, and I think he is a Christian like me! He kept things fresh and interesting, presenting the material in a variety of ways as well as interactive. I was also provided with all the resources and tools I needed to get the most of this course. I would highly recommend this course to almost everyone. I think every person could benefit from this course.
The seminar was good because it covered many areas from time management to organizational skills. It provided a valuable methodology for life.
The seminar was extremely informative and gives you a basis on how to be efficient at work and life.
This class was very helpful and I could put it to work right away. The instructor (Harry) was fabulous, engaging the class in order to put the skills to work immediately. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that is searching for skills to better themselves in both work and personal relationships!
This seminar is a paradigm changer. It takes the focus off of the world around you and puts the focus on you. This can change every aspect of your life.
Ignacio Gerardo D.
Everything was very good. The materials provide, 12 attendees (great to be in an small group) and the knowledge and ability of the facilitator.Great experience and learning.
Harry was a great facilitator.
This was a fantastic class and Deb did a great job with facilitating! She had everyone highly engaged and was prepared with all the questions that were brought up. She helped guide us down this path of self discovery and helped us lay down the ground work to become more effective in our daily lives.
I think it was a bit too long. I could have learned just as much in a shorter time period. - maybe 1.5 to 2 days maximum. Too much role playing also - this also could have been shortened some. Otherwise, the concepts and principles were very helpful.
Pauline is an engaging instructor and the Crystal City facility is conducive to a positive learning experience.
Content was excellent. Leader was excellent. I think the leader, and the way the material was presented made all the difference. Group excercises, interaction with other attendees, and movement throughout the session was a very good idea instead of sitting in a chair for three days sitting and listening to someone else talk.I will be looking at other classes to attend.
Class was very informative and well planned.
Great content in this classic course. A+.
This class helped me open my mind to new possibilities for myself. It helped me realize that I am responsible for getting myself there and ways to approach self-improvement.
Great material and useful to anyone at any level within an organization! Well presented by AMA faculty. Highly recommend this seminar.
I felt very comfortable and learned a lot.
I learned a lot about myself. I will ensure to incorporate it throughout my professional and personal life. An excellent seminar to attend. I would highly recommend it.
The seminar was very inspirational and was taught with great enthusiasm that drew me in and made me excited in the prospects of applying the material to both my professional and personal life. I highly recommend this seminar to others who are looking to shift their own paradigm to create positive change in their lives.
Not only is the Covey partnership an excellent component of AMA's curriculum, but the facilitator (Pauline) was very engaging in imparting the lessons to this class. She allowed for unstructured and honest discussions, plenty of group and personal activity with follow ups, and fostered an environment of trust and openness that truly added to the quality of the course material.
This seminar is the best seminar I've attended with AMA; the material was easy to follow, the examples and activities were (for the most part) real-life situations I can see myself handling better because of the seminar. Jen, the facilitator, was excellent. You can tell she cares about practicing these habits. I highly recommend the seminar and Jennifer.
The instructor's genuine enthusiasm for the course made it even more interesting.
It's a great tool to uses in your personal and work environment.
already provided. excellent job by instructor
Stephen Covey did an exemplary job at discussing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People with the book and videos. This coupled with the instructor's, Patrick, enthusiasm and passion for the subject matter made it that much more interesting. I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to better themselves in their personal and professional environments.
Excellent workshop. Tracy was excellent leading us through the different exercises. Her dynamic personality and her experience help me get the most out of the workshop. I would highly recommend this workshop and I would highly recommend Tracy as well.
Fantastic course and the instructor made it very interactive!
This was a very well organized class, insightful and informative. These 7 habits should be practiced everyday and become part of routine living. Joe is an excellent instructor. He presented the course material in a way everyone wanted to learn and made the class interactive with a great amount of class participation.
I wish it had to do more with the Office and not personal growth, I am over 55 and really was not expecting how to build mind body and soul.
This course contains life skills that are invaluable as I look to find that work - life balance. Janine used real life experiences to bring home the Principles. Will recommend this seminar to others in my company
This teaching of the seminar was more than satisfying and over the top. Patrick brings a whole new meaning to teaching. He was enthusiastic, well prepared, interactive, personable and shared his life's journey to further explain some of the material. I highly recommend this seminar for everyone who wants to elevate to the next level professionally and personally.
I loved the class and workshops so very much that I've implemented some of the exercises into my own team meetings.
My company thought it best to invest in my future as a leader and I am so glad I had the chance to take that commission to the 12 Steps Class. The wisdom was a solid fire hose for the first day and a half, but by lunch on day 2, I was starting to see how to integrate it together. By the the time the class was over, I felt like I'd passed through a boot camp and Mr. Ward was our fiery leader. Good experience and already using a lot of what I learned to teach others in my organization.
Excellent content and very professional and engaging speaker.
great class and perfect opportunity to share experiences with other people from other places.
Very comfortable setting with an energenic speaker. I was impressed by the information and the diverse background of the class.
The class objective was clear. The course was interactive. I left the class with a new outlook on life and understanding the importance of communication.
This was an excellent seminar. The instructor and participants were enthusiastic and engaged for all three days. I felt like I learned skills that will be useful in both my professional and personal life. If you're interested in learning how to look at things differently and taking control of your life to reach success, this is a great seminar.
In my 18+ years of taking professional courses, this course has left the most impact on me in both my professional and personal goals. The instructor, Jennifer, was very passionate about the subject and it showed in her delivery of the content. It was the first class I had taken where EVERY student was willing to participate and they provided discussion-provoking feedback.
Great facility, Great facilitator, Great staff. I plan to take additional courses from AMA!
I felt the seminar was fantastic. Very engaging and worth the time.
The program is very valuable , I benefited a lot from it. The instructor very versed and has experience in training. Although the length of daily training hours , but I enjoyed the program.
I enjoyed the content of the course and the instructor's delivery. I disliked role playing and a lot of the group activities.
A lot of information thoroughly given in 3 days. The instructor was an energetic gem who really knew her stuff! She answered questions thoughtfully and followed up with the class regularly to see if anyone didn't understand something or had any problems.
This was an excellent and enjoyable class that was filled with a lot of great content. The take away is invaluable. The instructor Joseph was top notch. His presentation style was laid back and fun.
I really enjoyed the seminar. It helped me get outside of my comfort zone. The 7 Habits seminar provided some REAL tools for prioritizing and organizing my work and personal life.
I highly recommend this seminar, the instructor was so engaging. It has motivated me to work toward implementing these practices personally and professionally. The additional workbook and reference material has helped allow me to use the knowledge in everyday life. I have already recommended this seminar to multiple co-workers and I am looking to register for a similar course in the future.
I immediately began implementing the strategies, tactics, and techniques discussed in this seminar. The session allowed for hands-on learning and practice with fellow seminar participants, while being superbly led by a trained and informed moderator. The mix of lecture, discussion, and experiential-type learning approaches was a great way to drive the information home. I highly recommend this session for anyone looking to be better in the work and personal performance and relationships.
My name is Tahiry Rajaonarimanana, Hubert Humphrey Fellow at BU from Madagascar. This is really the best seminar I attended in the US for my 2014-2015 Humphrey Fellowship year because:-In addition to the topic, the quality and the methodology used by the instructor are professional: sharing of experience; team work and discussion; the quality of the materials; videos from Dr Covey-The wrap ups done after each part are short, concise, and straight forward-The exchange between participants coming from all over the world promotes multicultural understanding and open mindset-The levels of participants are higher leveraging the synergy during the seminarThanks to AMA and the Department of State/IIE for this amazing opportunity and hoping to attend new seminars in the next future.
The instructor Jen was very passionate in her teaching methods. She kept the class of 14 very engaged. This class has made me look at my life in a different manner. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in "Sharpening the Saw"
The seminar was not what I expected, it was BETTER. Love to refresh my knowledge in the program. Also I learned you can live the program, make the 7 habits a personal and mission statement. I'm planning to take more seminars and use the program to invest in the most important person of my world...Thanks!
very interactive, life examples, using games, instructors made the environment friendly and fun.
One of the best life experiences that I have ! It is beyound a training is a change mind set !
The 7 habits seminar was very inspiring. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their lives both personally and professionally.
One of the most helpful and effective seminars I have ever done. Linn did an amazing job as the facilitator and would definitely recommend this to anyone.
I took the course in Houston, TX. The content of the class was relevant, interesting, and informative. Joe(instructor) was enthusiastic, well-versed in the covered topics, and overall just a good teacher. Pam, the admin from AMA, was super friendly and knowledgeable. The course materials were first-class with their design and layout; they will prove useful for reference in the future. The class included a lot of teamwork exercises, short videos, and open discussions. Prior to beginning the course, I had read the first three chapters of the 7 habits book...this class gave me the opportunity to talk strategy and get advice from people who have already implemented some or all of the 7 habits. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their effectiveness in their personal and work lives.
Tze Lee P.
Excellent course for those who would like to become a better person and a good leader.
Best training I have attended so far. Highly recommended to anybody in any position.
The content of the seminar might not be new for those experienced workers, however, the seminar does an excellent job of putting the concepts together in a concise way that is useful for the individual. The group exercises are very conducive to learning. It should be noted that for the seminar to be successful, the facilitator has to be skilled. You must 'Be Proactive' and 'Seek to Understand, Then Seek to be Understood' to benefit from this seminar.
Loved the course. The content was awesome, we had a great group in class and the facilitator was wonderful.
I enjoyed this seminar and the amazing instructor!
The course material was so inspiring both personally and professionally and the instructor was wonderful.
I loved the information that I received.
I loved this course. This will help me in both my work and personal life. When I returned home my 15 year old son wanted to hear all about it. I was going over some of the 'habits' and he is very interested in learning more. This will be great to teach him the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
James was a fantastic course leader. He was engaging, knowledgeable and personable.
The best program that I have attended thus far. The instructor was very engaging and animated. He kept all involved with partner exercises that where more valuable to me than role playing. I very much recommend this style of learning with interactive exercises and no role playing.
The instructor was very versed and excited about the topic which helped with the flow. The subject was wonderful and I am already utilizing some of the lessons in my daily routine.
A real eye-opener. Engaging, enlightening, and empowering!
The 7 Habits seminar was enlightening!! The lessons and interactions shared during the work sessions will help with my growth as a person. It has provided me with new positive perspectives to improve my life and to better contribute to my work place and the world!
Well organized by the AMA team; Very Dynamic & effective presenter: Great material content. A very worthwhile seminar.
The leader was excellent. I enjoyed the experience, location and content of the class.
It was a great seminar and would highly recommend it to me there. Homero definitely made it even better and would absolutely take another seminar that he was teaching. I will be recommending this seminar to my coworkers when I retu to work.
This 3-day course was awesome! It taught me how to analyze myself, my habits and my direction/mission in life. It gave me the tools to begin changing and evolving into the person I truly want to be. I'm excited for the future!
Very informative. Eileen our presenter did a wonderful job delivering the information and keeping us engaged at all times.
Materials applicable and trainign was at right pace. Facility was o.k., issue with restrurant, lack of service or poor service.
Mike did a phenomenal job. I was unable to finish because my computer locked up before Habit 7 but I thoroughly enjoyed the course and Mike was an excellent instructor.
I participated in a live online program. I appreciated learning through visual media and the many engaging activities. The course leader was knowledgeable and really believed in the message - which helped us stay focused. Would recommend this program to everyone.
Amazing class. Best class I've taken in a long while. Helped me grow professionally and personally. Would highly recommend.
Outstanding program and an extraordinary facilitator from FranklinCovey!
This was an excellent course. I would recommend this course for the beginning employee to the most seasoned and any in between. I have taken several classes through AMA and believe this to be the best one for creating a successful employee and person as a whole.
I've read Stephen Covey in the past, but working through his teachings in a small seminar atmosphere was quite a different experience. Mike is an exceptional presenter. His wit, presentation style and sprinkling of life experience was not only insightful but entertaining as well. The 3-day seminar past very quickly. I would recommend this seminar to anyone at any stage of your career or personal voyage. It can be a truly life-changing experience.
This was one of the most influential training I have ever had. Such good material and applicable information. The instructor was amazing. really kept us all enagaged.
Course material was great, and the teacher was exceptional.
Great class and our instructor Lin made the class even better. The interaction within the groups was very helpful. Each participant was able to share stories from their particular background as it related to the 7 habits. I highly recommend this class for those interested. I plan to take this program back to my company and roll it out with in-house training so the principles of this program can be integrated in my company.
This was a great class. Renee was a fabulous teacher, had real world examples I could relate to. The material was presented in a logical order and we had more than enough time to have relevant discussions if needed before moving on.
There were a lot of times that we were having good, constructive conversation when we were in the groops of 2 or 3 that was cut short. I believe more time should be alloted for the exercises when the need arises.
Participating in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People seminar was very beneficial and opened my eyes to many things I had not previously considered. It provided insight into areas of both my personal and professional development and encourages deeper exploration of what we do today and why, providing logical ways to help improve upon current behaviors through practical and progressive 'habits'. The course encourages changing the way you think and act instead of simply going down your 'programmed' path in life. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of self and how you can improve your interactions and relationships with others in your life- again, both on a personal and a professional level. Great stuff!
The workshop was one of the best I have ever attended. The instructor was excellent. He explained things clearly with real world examples. I was able to relate ever subject to my life. Great class and I would recommend this class to everyone.
I read the 7 habits when I was going through a tough time in my career and life. It changed my way of looking at things and improved my quality of life substantially. It has been a few years now, and I wanted to re-learn the habits. Overtime you forget the things that help, and so I decided to take this course and was excited it was part of the available seminars offered at AMA. I was pleasantly surprised by the facility in SF. The parking is not something I agree with, especially after the cost of the class. I would be more encouraged to send my employees if the parking cost was included. The facility is nice though.The instructor was very good and I enjoyed his presentation.
I really enjoyed our instructor and got a lot out of the class that i hope to use not only in the office but also in my personal life.
Outstanding information presented and mind provoking. This seminar allowed me the opportunity to see myself in a different light.
This class was excellent. The staff was knowledgable and provided such great and relateable examples to better assist us in understanding the true meaning behind each concept/habit we discussed. It was an incredibly self-reflective experience with many profound "Ah-ha" moments. I would reccommend this course to anyone and everyone. Im excited to use the tools provided and implement these habits.
This was a great seminar packed information and tools.
Very good overall, however I am finding that I would have liked more hands on practice with the Big Rocks concept and planing using the 7x7 contract. That part seemed glossed over and that was the most important part for me.
The interaction and learning experience was immensely enjoyable!
Some useful information was gained but overall the material presented is not worth the cost.
Presenter did an excellent job reaching a very diverse group (we had people from a variety of professions)
This was an excellent session & the facilitator was outstanding!
Excellent presenter, nice facility.
The seminar was outstanding! The facilitator was awesome and one of the best. I am recommending the seminar to everyone I know.
Very interactive, loved the facilitator's personal stories and his soft approach to encouraging participants to dig deep and share. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the first three habits for some self-evaluation.
The seminar was very helpful in helping me understand the process of being succesful and making the best choices in my career and personal life.
I read this book back in 1990 and it literally changed my life. Over the years I have let the principles slip and needed to hit the reset button on being effective. Reminding myself of what is important and not urgent, reminding myself not to be reactive and to curb my defensiveness and reminding myself that I have many good qualities to build on - this was a very positive experience for me. Sharing information and lessons in a group setting gave me another perspective and also showed me that my struggles are not unique - they are simply part of the human experience. Thank you for three days of calm reflection on basic principles of how to be a happier and more effective person.
Seminar of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" was Excellent and I would recomment it to any and everyone.
The content of this workshop is very relevant to my personal and professional lives. I was able to immediately apply to my life what I learned each day. The materials, videos and classroom atmosphere all contributed to a highly motivating learning environment. The instructor was energetic, and he clearly knew (and believed in) the content. I would recommend this seminar to anyone who is looking to improve their lives.
Very insightful and full of many applicable concepts.Our instructor provided multiple life examples, engage each attendee, and kept the course at a very good pace. Glad I was able to participate in this opportunity.Thank you,
The topics covered, examples given and the phelora of experiences from the attendees, added to a very successful seminar
Marché was outstanding. A true professional, she treated us with respect and ensured we all had a positive experience.
This was one of the best leadership seminars that I have attended. I only wish I would have done so about 10-15 years ago. The 7 Habits are relevant to all facets of life, family, work, and any relationship. I am so glad that I decided to attend this course.
The content of the seminar is life-changing. Implementing the 7 Habits impacts both professional but personal relationships. The Franklin Covey facilitator was engaging and offered insightful suggestions during our group discussions. The videos and printed materials were superb. This was one of the best courses I've attended in my 25+ year career!
The instructor was PHENOMENAL. Very engaged, animated, knew his job, very personable. I can't say enough 'good' about the course. It will help me with my personal and professional life with what I have learned.
A very informative workshop that I will take with me and actually use. The instructor (Jim) was very knowledgeable in the subject matter, made the workshop interesting. Also met some great people from all over the country. I will be able to use the concept for both personal and professionally. Would recommend more people take this course as if we all knew and had the same way of thinking, the world could be a wonderful place!
Great information. Great environment.
Excellent subject matter; exceptional instructor
My goal was to learn and to "take away" from this seminar. The instructor, Homero, helped me take away SO much more than just knowing what the 7 habits are and how to remember them!
Great seminar taught by a person who not only has a clear passion for this principle-centered program, but also puts it into practice. Course content highly applicable to proactively managing both personal and work life opportunities and challenges. Please continue to offer this very informative and transformative course.
An amazing seminar and very well organized. I strongly recommend it.
As with my past experience, this seminar was fantastic. I left on Friday feeling recharged and motivated - something I dearly needed. I can't wait to attend another one.
Instructor Jeff very knowledge of subject, an excellent teacher, and great at facilitating group discussion.
Instructor was great and very knowledgeable and the new system was very engaging. The group discussions were especially helpful.
The seminar was fun, informative and interactive. The presenter, Annette, was always willing to answer any questions even after the class. Overall, an enriching experience for one's professional as well as personal life.
The seminar was extremely helpful with some insight on how to manage conversations with more positive feedback and how to disfuse a situation. Lots of info to absorb.
Terrific teacher, good materials. Really made me think!
It was a life changing experience. I learned a lot that I will apply in my personal and professional life
This class has helped me identify what I truly need to work on to become more effective and what I need to do to improve on those areas.
This is the best personal development course I have ever participated in - and that is important. Participate!!
This class experience was fantastic! The content was engaging throughout the entire class and the tips I received regarding not being a slave to distractions has already helped me to have a better focus personally and professionally.
I found this course brilliant. It was more uplifting than I expected. I went in with a very open mind and found this will help me in my work life and in my home life. If you can do this course, do!
Facilitator was great. did not dominate discussions and allowed the group to participate
Powerful tools to help us find our personal victories so that we can better contribute to those public victories at home and the workplace.
The subject matter expertise and energy of the facilitator makes all the difference in any training course/seminar. Homero's knowledge and expertise brought the seminar to life through it's applicability in every day life whether personal or professional. His energy throughout the seminar made it so much more interesting and engaging. His storytelling is compelling and effective in connecting with the 7 Habits.
I have definitely learned that I need to stop being reactive and become proactive, this is definitely hard to do at my current position but I will learn to make sure that I will begin thinking with the end in mid. I'll apply all the habits that are permitted.Thanks,
Mike, our instructor, was great. He kept the class engaging through a variety of participatory exercises. I will definitely use the information I gained in this seminar to improve my life at work and at home.
One of the best seminars I've taken. The instructor was fantastic and the content was easy to follow. I am looking forward to incorporating what I learned into both my personal and professional life!
I came into this seminar expecting just to go with the flow, complete the exercises and come out with a certificate of completion. Little did I know that not only have I gained skills to impact my professional growth, I am more excited about the person I want to be because these skills also transferred on a personal level.
The workshop content was well presented. The 'habits' were known to me but the ways to practice them and self assess was something new. The pre workshop questionnaire was very helpful in the sense that I got valuable feedback from the various people I work with. I would try to fill in the gaps which I knew existed in me but have become more aware of them due to others pointing them out too
Teacher was excellent and made sure we understood what we were studying. Wasn't too cool that we were in a basement in downtown Phoenix for 3 days. Also didn't like it that the hotel didn't offer discounts. I think our whole class had to stay elsewhere.
The video aids were helpful. The interactive exercises with fellow trainees were beneficial. The instructor was excellent.Would recommend to others for both personal and professional growth.
Mike did an outstanding job making the information understandable. He did a great job explaining the contents of the course as well as the relevants of the material. Mike kept everyone engaged in the class. Everyone seemed to feel comfortable and did not show hesitation in participating during activities. Overall, Mike did an outstanding job and this was one of the best management classes I have had the opportunity to attend. I look forward to attending more AMA classes.
I really enjoyed the course material and excercises. I like the principle of maturity continuum, it makes a lot of sense.I am quite eager to implement what I learned when I go back. I believe the put first things first is an area for me to enhance my performance.I know I am quite a competitive person and always play to win, however I need to learn how play with others to win-winThank you for a great course and experience.
Hayden was a great presenter and did a fantastic job reaching out to the individuals in the class and making the content personalized. I was very impressed with his content, delivery and ability to connect with the group.Many Thanks!
7 Habits uses a common sense approach to living a better life overall. Once the habits are applied, you can't go wrong.
Excellent Tools, so thankful for this class at this pivotol point in my life.
Very useful tips and ideas
Very motivational and moving in a way I did not expect.Self reflection - great motivator!
Jeff was a fantastic instructor and demonstrated a great deal of subject matter knowledge. He took every opportunity to get the class engaged in conversation and role play real life scenarios. I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the different groups in the classroom - it felt more personable than other training courses I have taken in the past.
The instructor was personable and friendly and professional. She covered the material thoroughly and helped make sure every person in the class understood before moving to the next talking point. The material itself was inspiring and relevant to my needs. I couldn't have asked for a better, more inspiring class experience.
I had a really good experience. Eileen was a wonderful instructor with a boundless knowledge on the Seven Habits. She was able to get me excited to put the techniques, from the book, to work in real life. The people I met were from all walks of life and all areas of the globe.Working with others in the same position has given me the confidence to plan ahead with real goals in mind. It has also given me further faith in my own plans for my team.I also made friends that I believe I can call on to assist me if the situation calls for it.I look forward to my next class.
Instructor Peggy was excellent. it was time well spent.
Interactive despite not being in a live classroom.
The instructor engaged the class well and facilitated great discussion while making the material easily applicable.
Few things in my life have had such a positive impact on my way of thinking than the three day training "The 7 habits of highly effective people" that I followed at the AMA. Thank you Eileen for your professionalism and enthusiasm and thank you Stephen Covey for sharing your knowledge.
Very informative! Thank you! I really enjoyed the activity of self reflection. How we perceive life and all it's colors it has to offer. I did not want to stop the assignment, once the pictures ended and the music cued us to start writing, I fell into this calming sense and every thought I had in my head about personal and family life just came out so easy in writing. I found it very therapeutic and it will definitely be a tool I regularly use to gather my thoughts and emotions.
This was an excellent course that showed me specific skills I could acquire to improve my effectiveness not only at work, but in my personal life as well. The instructor, Glenda, was outstanding! It was evident she not only knows and teaches the material, but she lives it in every aspect of her life. From the moment the seminar started, the information, strategies, examples, and exercises were all relevant, and Glenda did an outstanding job of helping us see how we could apply what we were learning. I would definitely rate this seminar as one of the top three I have taken with AMA.
Seminar leader was excellent, topics were well covered, and the videos were poignant - especially those featuring Stephen Covey. However, the technical issues were frustrating at best, infuriating at their worst. I would recommend this class wholeheartedly but not the live seminar format. Each week I missed at least 15 minutes due to log-in problems. My coworker was unable to complete week 4 because of these ongoing technical issues.
Material seemed a bit dated
The information and presentation are great.
Excellent course. J.D. was the best instructor I have had for an AMA class. Passionate, knowledgeable and motivating. He kept the entire class engaged throughout the 3 days. Highly recommend this course if you are interested in making some effective life changing behaviors.
Excellent program .
This was an excellent seminar and I would Highly suggest anyone that is required to multi-task to attend.
Mike is an excellente trainer. The class was very interesting.
Highly valuable instruction with knowledge and principles that can be used every day in both work and personal life.
I gained a lot of tools that can be used in the work environment and at home, as well.
Great class with a wonderful instructor. She made it an interesting 3 days and left us wanting more!
It was an amazing seminar which has provded me a whole new perspective on my work and how my personal life will influence my work.
This is a condensed course but it hit the important topics in such a way that it was not anything new but the perspective or paradigm as it was called in the class is what provided the most useful insight.
This was by far the best seminar I have ever attended. Vicki knows her stuff, and her presentation skills were excellent. She was engaging, and moved the class on when appropriate, so that we could stay on task. The small size and high participation allwed us to get the most from the seminar. I plan to use the skills to improve both my professional and personal life.
This was by far the best seminar that I have ever attended. The content will not only help me in my professional life but my personal life as well and the instructor was TERRIFIC!
Lin was the best.
The training and training instructor were very good and informative. The only negative was that the room that we had our seminar in was poorly lit. This made it diffuculte to read and by the end of the day my eyes were tried and irritated.
Robert (Bob) J.
The trainer and the materials were excellent. I am still going through the program and it is great.
Mike was a great instructor, I hope we meet again in a few years when I return to 'Sharpen The Saw'.
Great class with successful life tools to benefit from.Thanks;)
Very practical tools and information provided. I will definetely put into practice these concepts. Also, the seminar leader was very knowledgeable and kept things lively. I will recommend this particular program.
Great course! Peggy did an amazing job in delivering the content in an engaging way, which involved class participation activities, videos, and lecture. Highly recommend!
This is an excellent seminar for anyone wishing to have the tools and roadmap to raise their game and become organized. I particularly liked the emphasis on adding balance to our lives, not just focussing on the work side.The presenter, Ruth injected a lot of positive, personal energy and vibrance into the course, her life experience greatly enhanced this program.I came away from the three days (which flew by) with several very powerful tools, which I have now put into effective use, and also a lot more confidence in my ability to make incremental changes to my company to move it in a more positive direction.
The course was very useful, the facilitator was amazing and encouraged inclusive participation with all the delegates. I am certain the skills discussed and learnt at the workshop will be very beneficial in my work environment.Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
Overall the class content was good, although some of it I didn't find applicable. The instructor was exceptional.
This was a very eye opening experience for me. I loved the instructor and the teaching method was perfect for our group. I came away energized and much better equipped to be "effective" in my job.
An excellent course and the Instructor was very skilled at engaging the group and providing pragmatic examples.Thank you.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter. He was very engaging and all the students appeared to enjoy his teaching style. He provided great stories and examples to help us relate. Highly recommend!
Enjoyed the way the instructor conducted the seminar. Bryan kept the class interesting, shared his personal stories that drove the points home. I definitly walked away with several nuggest from this seminar.
Bryan was an excellent teacher and facilitator. He made learning the 7 Habits fun and interesting by creating a very comfortable environment where everyone felt engaged and open to sharing their personal and professional experiences. I highly recommend this course and teacher!
