Very informative and will help me with my development in my position
I enjoyed the face to face interaction. This was my first classroom attendance and I've attended on line sessions previously with AMA.
I think this was the best class I have taken from AMA. Joseph was awesome in his delivery style, questions, insight. He's fantastic.
This course was very well organized and helped me to recognize some of the things that I have been doing were correct. This course also helped me to know that what I have been doing and WHY it seems to be working. This will help me to better assist others and not just say, well this is what I do but also here is what works.I picked up several new and good pieces of information that I am going to be able to implement in my personal and professional life.
I originally wanted to do this class in-person. Due to a conflict, I had to reschedule to an on-line...I admit, I was skeptical. But this WAS fantastic. It was interactive, and easy to follow. The hard copy materials mailed in advance were perfect for following along. GREAT class.
excellent training! very practical and helpful!
Joe is GREAT!
Very good course with some new nuggets and many reminders of things I should be doing to be more effective. Focusing on your Q2 roles and supporting tasks is key. This is where I will focus immediately.
I left this course feeling energized and motivated to make some positive changes in my professional roles as well as tools I can use in my personal life. I highly recommend this class.
Very beneficial. Look forward to implementing what I learned into practice.
Excellent course, better than the last. Changed my work life! Loved the outlook skills improvement section.
Instructor was very knowledgeable. The pace of the first day was much too slow in my opinion. I would have preferred more time to implement Choice 4.
I thought the training was great and informative
Very interesting content. Pauline was amazing!
Pauline was an excellent instructor and knew how to grab and keep your attention.
Super talented. Excellent presenter
Good seminar and instructor!
Our Instructor Sydne, was very engaging and insightful.
The 5 Choices program is well organized and packs a lot of content in a simple and easy to understand program. Overall the presenter was excellent and having the in-person programs is great to gain insights from other participants as well.The one challenge was that the pre-work came less than a week before the seminar, not allowing sufficient time to have it completed efficiently before the seminar started for most of the participants in our class
The instructor was so knowledgeable and easy to learn from. She presented the info with enthusiasm and had great stories to back up her teaching points.
Desiree was very involved. Took her time to answer everybody's questions, made sure everyone participated, and got the most out of the class. Her realistic and involved approach to teaching is very effective and successful.I would highly recommend her classes, as well as the class format to anyone.
The instructor was fantastic. We had 8 people in the class, which was the perfect size. Lots of excellent information was taught.
I had several good take a ways from this class that I can implement into my work and life.
This course was incredible. I feel empowered to reorganize my priorities through the quadrant framework.

For a productivity workshop that discusses efficiency, the instructor was very inefficient and did not manager her time wisely.
good objectives and ideas
I thought this seminar was extremely interesting and very helpful. It is going to motivate me to make very positive changes.
good content. sequenced well. knowledgeable and articulate trainer.
Received great information and tips from Instructor as well as other students
Enjoyed the course - very informative
This course offered valuable insight on what it takes to achieve great things with practical and timely steps to help me get there. I would definitely recommend everyone take this -- no matter who they are or what they do for a living. We all have potential to do great things, we just have to make different choices to get there.
Very good speaker and very engaging presenter.
I enjoyed the content. It touched on very relevant aspects of professional life. I took away a lot of insights into making changes that will allow better productivity.I realize that time constraints affect how in-depth the course can get, but I felt some deeper exploration of the core values in choices one and two could be beneficial.
James was probably the best trainer i've had so far.
Are there any people teaching courses such as these that concentrate more on mastering the technology rather than deciding whether the task is Q1 or Q2 and then never doing any Q3 or Q4? Seems any course I go to is instructed by some OCD person that is so organized it seems they would have little time to do little else. Not making eye contact is not a good way for me to stop the phone from ringing or stop emails with unreasonable time constraints for a reply.
Overall, this 2-day course was great! Pauline was smart and engaging. She made the material relatable and digestible. This class is great for those who are feeling "burnt out" at work.
Relates to both work and personal lives.
Great class, really helps with time management as well.
Love her energy
I learned a tremendous amount that will help me be really productive but more importantly, better focus my attention on the areas that will create the biggest impact.
Instructor was excellent. Only reason I didn't rate course as excellent was because I thought it could have been just as effective if it were completed in a day or day and a half.
Pauline is great instructor and the material is excellent.
The instructor and the information provided was beneficial. The only part I could have done without is the pairing up activities. Also, I think they may have overlooked telling us to bring our laptops with us to the training.
Didn't really meet my needs.
I loved the material in this training session and can't wait to put it to use.
Sydne was a great trainer and the class was very interesting and helpful.
I thought Sydne was very engaged and gave clear instructions/advice. She also paced the content well, and engaged the students.
I am so excited to get back and start utilizing these tools and techniques.
Pauline made the course material easy to absorb and had us interact with each other in teams to work through the material. She is knowledgeable, engaging and an extremely pleasant leader in conducting the course.
I think this is an excelent excellent course. A lot of eye opener for me that made me aware of which areas or things i need to keep doing and make better and things that i really need to get serious working on.Something that i can really use for the important things in my life. As what have been said, if you stay focus on the important things, everything else will follw.Thank you to our amazing course leader, Pauline, Great Job!
Unbelievably wonderful 2 days. Amazing instructor - would very much like to take more classes with Pauline teaching.
Excellent. Extremely helpful professionally and personally. Highly recommend!
Pauline was a great instructor. Her delivery and integration methods with the class were spot on.
Great class and instructor.Helped rethink my roles and priorities.Provided excellent tools to help achieve my goals.
Friendly, energetic trainer.
No indication was given to bring laptops in any of the materials I had with Microsoft outlook loaded on them.Class was fun, but extremely distracted due to malfunctioning AV system.
Great pacing of material, thorough understanding of concepts and great examples from the instructor, made this an incredibly worthwhile commitment of time and money.
The content and the leader were great. It was a lot to pack into a day and a half, and I think would be better as five separate modules spread out over a longer period of time so some work could be done between the modules.
Joseph was excellent, so engaging and knowledgeable. I really felt like he cared and wanted to see us succeed!
much more informative than expected
Marie Manette C.
This was by far the best professional development course I have attended. From the content to the Instructor, the information was presented so well. I am excited to implement this at work and home. It's like a fresh start.
Great class!! Thank you very much Glenda.
When it is just a two day class, not having the printed material for the first day really impacted the course, created additional work to move information into the books and made it a little harder to keep things organized and to track.The content presented was very pertinent and is what I needed to hear to start transforming my work habits.The group exercises and one-on-one role playing was wonderful, and I found it very applicable. It was a great way to reinforce what we were learning and to show us shared issues across many industries.
Very good information/materials. Excellent facilitator.
Great Class. Very refreshing.
He was entergitic and worked hard to make sure everyone learned
this was an expensive 2 day class. it didn't need to be two days as 1/4 of the time was spent on some students filling stuff out online on their personal laptops, while others waited to get home to their own computers. The first day, we didn't even have the course book. this could easily be condensed to a GOOD one day course with the proper script and instructor. Two days out of the office makes for a ton of gravel to sort back at home instead of trying to implement the big rocks.
The training was excellent. I would highly recommend to others that are interested in transforming from what you already do daily at work and at home to learning to be creatively productive.
The day 1 material was very helpful, but the day 2 material on outlook usage was not. The presenter, while engaging and informative, was mostly reading off a power point slide. The course material did not show up until day 2.
Great material, production of videos, and work books. High quality class. Would have liked the teacher to remind people not to have sidebar conversations which became a little distracting the second day. Choice 4 which covered Outlook could use some refining. More videos and overview, less step by step guide. I would have liked an overview of what you can do rather than a step by step of how to set up in outlook. The booklet provided contained the setup information which I thought was sufficient. The overview could also accommodate other mail programs.
One of the best training courses I have ever attended. This gave me a whole new perspective on planning my day to day activities.
W. Thomas S.
This class was well organized and kept everyone engaged.
I think this was an excellent class, very structured and well organized. The instructor was highly motivated and very engaged.
The instructor was very well versed in the course subject material and very effective in conveying the principles.
I wish we would have had more hands on time with the email/tools section.The 2nd half (after lunch) we needed more interaction/movement.
good pace, excellent information
This being my first AMA class (but having attended many leadership/management trainings), I wasn't sure what to expect. But this course really opened my eyes to some new opportunities for better planning, focus and productivity in all aspects of my life--which is exactly what I was looking for. I learned some great new tools to live my life the way I want to.
First online seminar but worked great. Very interactive and no opportunity to be distracted. good videos. pleasant pace and with enough breaks in between.
Sydne was very knowledgeable about the topic and provided great examples. She also involved the class by creating team practical exercises.
I thought the training was very informative and the facilitator kept everyone engaged. Great Class.
too much fluff not enough meat. big picture ideas and inspirational stories are good but useless without dissecting them and really exploring the constructs of the overarching ideas
I thought the course was really good and has the potential to be very helpful. The instructor kept everyone involved and it was a very interactive training.
Great tips and teaching process.
I loved the course and will recommend it to my co-workers. The content and support materials were very up-to-date and relevant. I thoroughly enjoyed Desiree and would look forward to one of her other classes. One recommendation it to provide the take-home tools & bonus modules via the internet vs. DVD as most new computers do not have a floppy drive. If you don't want people to have access when they didn't take the course, make it password protected. Otherwise great job!
Instructor and small group was perfect.
Synde was entertaining, knowable and kept everyone on schedule. It wasn't a dry class and she had everyone engaged.
My only complaint is that there was an entire section on using Outlook, but we were not asked until we were there if we used Outlook or not. A few others and I use Lotus Notes. If the instructor had known that ahead of time, she could have been more prepared for those of us not using Outlook. Instead a guide for Lotus Notes is to be sent to us later.
I really appreciated the holistic framework of the training and found all parts of it incredibly valuable!
Interactive and good information. Using simple language with good examples.
Class was taught very well. Good balance of lecture and group activities.
Training was great, a very good overview of time management and how to go from ordinary to extraordinary.
Mary Jo W.
The content was extremely valuable. If applied, it could be life changing. I would have like to see more real life examples of the 5 Choices being applied.
Very informative course.
Great course! Great learning tools! Great presenter! Great information to use both at work and at home.
Great course. It really is about focusing on productivity and not just time management. The course creates a paradigm shift in the way I think of how to be productive. I would have liked more time to be available for maybe one-on-one sessions or ask the instructor. We took a 1 hour break on the first day in addition to lunch. Recommend that time be offered as one-on-one assistance from the instructor.
Very happy to have taken such a great course which can assist professionally and personally
Best online training I've ever taken! Loved the layout of the course and participation opportunities. Videos and take home points were great and very applicable.
I really enjoyed this course, and I very excited to start using what I have learned!Thank you to Joseph for facilitating and Matt for all producer support!
Instructor was very engaging.
Pauline perfect trainer! Very engaging, knowledgeable, passionate-made it fun!
was done very well
Good course practical info you use immediately
The course was very informative. I enjoyed the way the instructor encouraged us to engage with each other. I am looking forward to living an extraordinary life!
Best AMA program! I believe constructive guidance in this small group setting, outside of my organization, helped me to evaluate my current prospective and potential possibilities more objectively. I believe I will benefit greatly from this training both professionally and personally.
One of the best virtual courses I have taken, which I will be able to apply to both personal and professional aspects of my life. The instructor was fantastic. He kept me engaged and taught ways to incorporate and apply what we were learning to our own lives. There were also many health facts that were brought to my attention that I was not aware of, which I will use, try or keep in mind for becoming a happier and healthier "me". I would recommend this class to everyone who is looking for tips to become more productive and better organized in their lives.
Great disciplined system for making effective choices and using tools to achieve YOUR goals and enabling you to make a difference with your life!
well conducted, on schedule, relevant, valuable
Great material to use to achieve extraordinary
Sydne did a phenomenal job of engaging our class and allowing an open dialogue between all 4 members of the course, while still keeping us on track of the curriculum.
Our instructor was great. Engaging, changing it up so we didn't get bored - we were able to move around the classroom.
Very good instructor
Pauline is an awesome teacher and AMA is lucky to have her!
Many common sense practices that would serve me very well if I made them more common in my life.
Great tips that will be very useful - I plan on acting on them immediately
Outstanding trainer and training materials are most useful; also we had a great group.
While Kurt presented material well, AMA set him up to deliver a sub-par event. Items relating to AMA's shortcomings are listed in a later field.Please note: To instruct the course it may be wise for the instructor to be aware there is a hardcover book available for purchase.
I enjoyed the course and learned a lot from Kurt on how to better use calendaring to my benefit, along with other important tools to identify the importance of requests (even though I already use calendars for others, I haven't used it to block time for myself in the past). I look forward to using the principles that were taught in the course and better manage my time with productive tasks, rather than waste my time on "tasks" that do not matter.The only hindrance I encountered was when I could not create "rules" in Outlook due to not having internet access. As I already know how to create rules, this was only a minor nuisance to me. However, for those who may not be familiar with the subject of creating rules in Outlook, this would pose a greater learning roadblock as it pertains to Choice 4 of the course. Additionally, it seems that the resources in DVD form could use an updated format; perhaps an online link to follow? I still have a separate (personal) laptop I can use to view the DVD, but my work laptop does not have a CD port.
The training focuses only one one technology (outlook) a lot of people have moved away from this mail/calendar system, half of the second day was absolutely useless.
Jon Paul D.
For as expensive at this training was, wifi access should have been included. On site food would have been nice too.
Thought the course was well taught and organized. There was no WiFi available in the hotel, unless paid for by the attendee, and WiFi is needed in class. For the cost of the class I was expecting at least light snacks or a small breakfast provided, like fruit, juice, pastries etc.
Despite that there was NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY available through the venue reportedly because "we'd have to pay for it", and the fact that I had to pay over $50 for parking, the course itself was good.
The training was great with lots of good ideas. Kurt was a wonderful and engaging instructor. There was no wifi in the room, so that made it a bit of challenge to practice the tools in Outlook. Also, with many computers not having built in DVD players anymore, there might be alternatives to providing a DVD that should be looked at.
Kurt was very nice and knowledgeable. The course and curriculum were interesting, though the methods of instruction were a little repetitive and unimaginative. it was clear Kurt was following the Franklin Covey syllabus, which was a little dry and predictable.It was ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE that you did not provide wi-fi in the meeting room AND/OR inform us before the class to make our own arrangements. I have gone back through my communications from AMA and there was NO mention that wifi was needed and not included. Had I known, I could have made arrangements to provide my own. Instead I was caught unaware and therefore practically the entire second morning (1/4 of the conference) I was unable to take part in the activities rendering it largely ineffective. For a seminar on productivity this is absolutely counterproductive. Also not having materials for MAC - ie flash drives rather than CD's and MAC versions of the guidebook - is extremely short-sided in this day and age. in order to implement the methods discussed I will have to google instructions. Again not very productive...
Our instructor was great but not having Wi-Fi while trying to train is on how to more efficently use out outlook was a problem. Made it so we couldn't try a lot of the things that we were going over which was a disappointment.
Engaging, fun presentation, Practical and useful information and tips.
The materials were excellent and easy to follow. Janet was an excellent instructor and did a great job presenting the material as well as keeping a good cadence and managing time.It would be very helpful if we had access to some of the supplemental slides the instructor presented.
Loved the optimism in the message. Well organized, attainable, and useful.
transformational approach !!
Joe was excellent. He engaged the class and set out a clear path for success. Highly recommended for anyone.
This was an excellent course with a top notch instructor. The course exceeded my expectations and I truly believe it will help improve my productivity.
energetic and honest trainer, good and engaged group
I really enjoyed this course and I am glad that I took it a few months after the 7 Habits course. The 2 are very complimentary.
Overall I felt like the course was very beneficial. I liked the instructor so much that I wish that I could have an opportunity to follow her trainings, such that AMA lists the instructors. To improve the class in the future, I would not bring up social issues into the discussion. For example, I was incredibly disgusted by the class discussion on the homeless in SF that was started by the instructor talking about a city tax on dinning in on restaurants. That had nothing to do with the course material, and instead made me frustrated with the high level of privilege in the attendees. There was also another topic on styrofoam which, if your taking a course in California, you better know that your talking up points that counter our recognition of the environmental destruction that they bring. Outside of those two conversations I was very pleased with the actual course material.
The facilitator was really good. She explained everything in an easy to understand way and she drew from personal experiences, which was helpful. Our group had very specific questions and she did a wonderful job answering them. The room was a bit tight, we had several participants and it was a small room, so perhaps a bigger room would have been a little bit better. Overall, I thought the facilitator did a wonderful job!
Overall the training was great. The instructor was engaging and helpful. The venue, though a beautiful hotel, the room however, was small and cramped which for me was not helpful in learning the material. When asked for a wifi password from the hotel staff, I was informed that the wifi would have to be paid for. The expense of 15 people to use wifi for at maximum of 20-30 minutes per day wouldn't have been an issue for the hotel, yet it wasn't offered. Desiree was fantastic and she worked well with what she was given.I personally use lotus notes as did a few others in the class. This should of been clarified prior to the course so we would of had correct materials to use and follow during the event.We ended up not having to pay for parking which was great news, but it wasn't a due to a perk it was because the gates were open for an additional reason.
Very helpful content for prioritizing, based on an expansion of Covey's 3rd habit. A very engaging, personable and knowledgeable presenter.
I have attended previous AMA classes and I am pleased to say that "The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity" was the best to date. Joseph is an outstanding instructor and he knows how to make the content real and relevant to our circumstances and situations. He is a master at "making it real" and at answering questions and providing examples that help you understand how to improve and become more efficient and productive. I wish he could come work with me for a week or so at my office!!
I enjoyed the content and my instructor. I also enjoyed that the class wasn't too big.
Great class, I learned a lot of helpful tools help me be more productive!
Very well done.
Mike was an excellent instructor! He added so much value to the course. Our class really enjoyed him.
Very helpful and although I was a little afraid of taking this on-line, it worked out very well. Could hear perfectly and the tech support was great!
This was a great course with a great instructor.
Desiree did a great job going through the materials. The group chat is really nice - makes an online course seem more personal.
great tool to use in personal and business life
Pauline is very professional, inspiring and has a unique way of motivating people. I highly recommend this class to those people who are stressed out whether at home or at work.
Susan was fantastic, in addition to the tips provided in the books, she provided additional Outlook tips and shortcuts that will make my life easier.
I learned a lot of valuable skills that I was able to apply to my personal and professional life after the first day of training.
Material covered was excellent. Lot of good information with the focus on improving my projects and tasks.
Great real world useful information on becoming more productive
Susan does a great job, and the course content is practical, useful, and applicable.
Class was very informative and I really liked the Outlook section.
Money well spent! Just the tips and tricks of the trade in organizing/using Outlook was well worth it.
The experience Susan brought from her one-on-one executive coaching was an excellent addition to showing how the content could work in real life with people who might already have been perceived to be successful. It shows that even 'successful' people have room for improvement.
She was knowledgeable, energetic, effective, and attentive at all times. When we went off subject she would gently redirect us. Each person in her class was greeted with warmth and respect.
The training facility per se was very nice; the instructor was awesome: she was engaging everyone, super energetic, it was really great. The downside -which isn't to blame on the instructor or AMA- there was a lot of construction noise in the training room. That was disturbing.
I found the subject matter fascinating and the instructor, Pauline, was awesome!
very well presented, great interaction
I was feeling more organized before even leaving the seminar. I received lots of great tips on staying organized and on top of my workload. Email is huge! Thanks!
This course is ideal for those that want/need to improve their productivity. It takes a wholistic approach to improving productivity including critical attention to reining in technology and making it work for you.
I enjoyed the seminar, it made me think of better ways to prioritize my life personally and in my work life.
Kurt was a great presenter and kept the class involved and engaged.
This was an excellent course for review of goals and goal management.
Great course that emphasizes and builds upon the 7 habits of highly effective people. I would recommend that Learners have an understanding of these habits, but it is not required in order to benefit from the course..
The Instructor held the attention of the class very well. The Information was very valuable.
Training was well organized and presented nicely. A lot of useful, common sense information was provided.
Great class; great professorI feel like every AMA class I attend is a unique experience (not canned delivery) and is adaptable/useful for what I do.
Class was great instructor and receptionist were great I highly recommend this class it really opened my eyes
This seminar was engaging and informative. The information was valuable.
AMA and Joe provided an excellent environment to learn.
I enjoyed the class, and think that it will be helpful for me to develop better habits in both my work and personal life.
Too long. Cut out role play and discussions with others about goals.
The instructor did a great job engaging all of the attendees.
Very informative. I think it is going to greatly increase my productivity
Excellent, life changing workshop!
Great presenter, great content
Jeff was great! He used real life examples to help us understand the materials. This was very insightful. I feel that I will be able to take this information and use it personally and professionally.
The material was spot-on and very inspiring. The instructor, Jeff, was incredible.
Jeff was outstanding. Very knowledgeable on the content and I had a wonderful experience with this seminar.
Kurt facilitated self-examination of both my business and personal life that has resulted in helping me to focus on this rather than just ride the wave. This process of self-examination has deeply affected my thinking.
Enjoyed the workshop and the facilitator was very knowledgable
instructor seemed to be knowledgeable of the topic and did a great job getting everyone involved during the training.
I was very pleased with the training, and the instructor seemed very in tune with the subject matter. I liked the approach, and the classmates I had were enjoyable to work with.
Very good program that covers ways to recharge, reorganized and mostly repurpose you work and social life. Its an easy to use format that can bring benefit on many levels
Kurt was a phenomenal instructor! He was so insightful and fun. He made the course material (which was excellent) come alive.
This course represents the best use of two days for a training. The course is very effective in providing the tools to enable professionals to manage the job hurdles successfully.
Best instructor ever. In just two short days she delivered content she clearly believed in and challenged the class to grow personally and professionally. At the end of two days many lined up to hug her! Content was very useful, small tips on time and goal management in Outlook and big tips on managing our lives.
The instructor was great. The materials were great. Looking forward to putting the information to use for a more productive work environment.
Though the 5 steps are good, I wish there was more specific discussion around how I could implement them at my office. It seemed that some attendees could easily implement these with their office culture, but I would have a lot more difficulty.
Great subject matter, superb tools provided, Instructor fantastic/superior/marvelous...wow what more can I say!!! Only complaint is that the color (light green) used in the graphics made them hard to read.
Deb is an awesome instructor! Great course! I wish the facilities were more conducive to learning - lots of noise distractions and climate control issues. It would be beneficial for non-techies like me to have a hands on segment during the 4th Choice phase.
I'd like to think I'm pretty updated on the latest trends but I always walk away from my AMA training with a new tool to help me at work and in my personal life. The instructors are knowledgeable and build rapport quickly.
The course provides helpful strategies to improve one's performance and productivity.
Joseph is great instructor, reinforcing material in different ways and engaging the class in open communication about the topics. Materials for class are right on and provide info that can be applied right away in personal/home life.
Great course - the Q2 principles will really help me. I could have used more time focused on implementing technology changes because that really trips me up. But I am excited about trying some of the ideas that I learned here.
It was an informative and enjoyable session
Excellent course and presenter.
The instructor was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and engaging. The course content was very good and the additional guide book and DVD is appreciated.
Deb is truly an outstanding teacher; professional, knowledgeable, intuitive - all the while presenting the material in a very inspiring & fun way!
Deb was engaging and knowledgeable in all aspects of course.
I came away feeling energized for all the possibilities these learnings can bring me in my life. Deb was a terrific facilitator. You've got a real gem on your hands with her.
Great structure to the course in terms of content and how it was presented with a great mix of lecture, activity, and video. Very engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Great reference material provided.
This was a great class and I am really glad I attended. Lots of tips and tricks for productivity.
Gave new tools for managing work and home.
I enjoyed the training. Desiree did a great job of explaining/teaching the 5 Choices. She was very kind and helpful and had answers to all of the questions. I learned a lot. Great job Desiree!
Desiree was extremely engaging and presented the content in an easy way to digest it all and make it fun.
Very well timed and paced. Videos added a lot of info and bonus material to the course.
Excellent class. This is the fourth class that I have attended and plan on more.
Very clear. Facilitator used this platform to interact with our comments. There was a good flow to the class overall.
Pauline is a gem! She immediately established rapport with everyone in the class and facilitated a comfortable environment for sharing information. She is kind and engaging and very effective as an instructor. It was evident that everyone in the class really enjoyed her company and the wisdom she taught us! I learned so much from her about management and leadership in a brief two days.
It was well-run and organized, and provided great insight on how to determine what tasks are actually important or not.
The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and fluid in the presentation of the materials moving from review of the materials, watching videos and interactive sessions seamlessly. I benefited greatly from the course and am working to implement the lifestyle processes.
I focused on the use of outlook in the class and brought my laptop. However, only 1 other student did so - until Day 2, I was wondering if the link would be made -- it was made in Day 2. I spent lunch on the first day going through the technical manual and made the connection but it might be better to raise up front.
The instructor Pauline was clear, very engaging and knowledgeable of the subject. Excellent material and life experiences were shared which helped make the material real.
Pauline is absolutely fabulous! This can be life changing; if you are open to trying new things and commit to change!
The instructor was great, but the structure of the course was hit-or-miss. A couple of the big points were good, but a couple seemed unnecessary (i.e. setting your personal goal, how to "relax,"), impractical, and too touchy-feeley for what I was hoping would be a course on how to really drill down and focus/achieve more at work.
This was an awesome workshop. My instructor kept us well-engaged and had a wealth of information around the 5 choices class. I left the seminar feeling charged up and ready to put my newly acquired tools to work and am excited to bring the information back to my colleagues at work!
The instructor and participants worked really well together, which made the seminar very enjoyable and educational.
Sydne knew the material and kept the participants engaged throughout the 2-day course. I can't wait to implement the material in both my professional and personal life.
The class moved at a very slow pace. The first day was going over all problems and no solutions. Then the main solution was making sure we go back to our workplace and teach our boss and coworkers the "language"??? I needed solutions that would help me and not have to be learned by our entire workplace.
Sydne is a great instructor and very well trained with Franklin Covey's trainings
Based on the course description, I thought this course was going to be different than this was. The course could have been completed in 1 day.
I did not attend the second day, do to such a poor overall impression of the first. There was nothing that the facilitator did that added value to the videos or slides presented. I could have just stayed home and read the training manuals.
This is the best seminar I have done regarding making the right choices and personal development
Very engaging instructor
Outstanding course with an excellent and informative intructor.
Online format was excellent, and the teacher did a great job of communicating with people as well as including them through out the class.
5 Choices provides you with a specific action plan for making sure you are working on your top priorities and then gives you tools and tips to maximize your efficiency at getting the right things done. Desiree is a great instructor!
I've started to implement what I learned and I am accomplishing soo much more!
The course was structured well to provided a deeper understanding of the 5 Choices of Extraordinary Productivity.
Tze Lee P.
It was a great seminar. The instructor (Sydne) was engaging. I learned many tips and tricks for organizing Outlook. I will be adding rules to my inbox!! Thank you!
This seminar was very interactive and motivating. I have incorporated many of the methods into my everyday life. Sydne is a (beyond) awesome instructor. She's spunky, swift and dynamic. I fell in love with her and I wish I could have her in my daily life!!! She's a truly gifted spirit.
