It was great! They both were attentive and answered all questions and made sure to take time to see that every one understood.
The content was great. Lorena did another fabulous job. Lee was great as well. We have adobe connect in the VA, but we can't do breakouts. So, I am always fascinated watching a good training conducted using most facets of Adobe Connect
I wish we had had more time to verbally share examples, however Lorena was great at delivering examples
I enjoyed the break out classes. Material was easy to follow.
Loved this seminar with Lorena. She kept it fun, engaging, interactive and informative. Highly recommend! I feel like I learned valuable techniques and great tools to use for better time management.
Overall, the training is good and helpful. The instructor paid attentions to the attendances' emotion, body language, and responses. It is good to promote questions, group discussion, and practice. It would be less stressful for me if the instructor can speak a little slower.
Patricia was very knowledgeable and provided excellent time management techniques and sources.
The course is great for tips and tricks for improving time management, and there was sufficient class time to build personalized time management strategies. Our instructor Patricia was excellent at presenting topics clearly and concisely and responding to individual questions. I highly recommend this class!
Janet has provided the best possible example of what to expect from a first time AMA student! I thought Janet was top 3 best instructors that i ever had, to include all Military Instructors I have had over the years!
Janet was fantastic. I enjoyed her course work, activities, and pace. I look forward to coming back to AMA soon.
Overall - the material was very well structured and the course was very informative. Could have used more information incorporating how we use technology and other applications to tackle modern time management issues. However, the overall principles which were taught were steadfast and timeless, and are applicable to my current role.
The instructor demonstrated knowledge and made the class interesting.Other: Recommendation: provide continental breakfast and snack in the afternoon. Also, a break room with microwaves to sit and eat lunch
Get course content and excellent instructor
The course was very helpful is decifering the aspects of time management where I was lacking and teaching techniques to improve. The course teacher was very effective in how he presented the solutions with a lot of participant interaction and group activities.
Great deliverables (slides, test booklet, course book) etc. Due to the short time available the instructor is obliged to skims the surface of a large amount of topics related to time management.
Pauline is a terrific instructor; her passion and enthusiasm are clearly evident and contagious. She is realistic in her approach to the subject matter and inspires attendees so they believe success is possible.
I liked every exercise we did. Pauline is the perfect person to teach this course and I am very happy to be a part of her class.
Pauline made the sessions interesting by including a lot of group activities and she also provided valuable insights during discussions.
The instructor was able to personalize her lessons for her audience. I was able to apply 2 techniques this week that I learned in her class last week.
The instructor did an incredible job. I am more confident than when I started and would continue to take courses through this organization.
Pats training style is very conducive and would recommend others to this class.
The seminar was very informative and I learned many tools and technics to improve my time management skill set.
Pauline does a great job at keeping the trading interesting. She mixes discussions, activities and a minimal amount of lecturing well!
Pauline was an excellent presenter, and her passion for the material was very obvious.
The seminar gave me some tools that I'm, right away implementing to manage better my time.
Pat was very clear and thorough in her teaching. She led well, made the seminar fun, and made us all feel comfortable to interact in group activities. I enjoyed the seminar very much and all it had to offer! The books and presentation in total made it a great learning experience. I was afraid I would come to a room full of people and it not feel worth coming, but I was wrong. The small group made it very easy to get to know one another and find various work techniques others may use in their daily work.
I was very pleased with the content and the instructor. The information was presented in a real-world manner and in such a way that I believe I can incorporate many of the tools taught into my daily work life.
Pauline is a great instructor! She showed me what I need to correct in order to perfect my time managing skills both work and personal!
Pauline is a great instructor, her infectious enthusiasm made the class so much more interesting! I will definitely be using all of my new skills in time management.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and intuitive. I enjoyed the seminar so much I wanted more days! She touched on a lot of things I wanted to work on and gave me useful tips via her dialogue and engagement of the group that I feel I can utilize.
Very helpful ideas and good plans for implementation.
I learned a few new tactics and ideas for time management. Some things I already knew, and others were not applicable for my position.
The class offered some useful tips to help me feel like I have more control over my day.
I really valued the lessons, approach and recommendations from David being someone who has years of experience in time management.
The presenter took his time with the information provided making it easy to understand.
I really loved Lorena's teaching style. Awesome!
Lorena and Ben did a great job. I learned a lot.
Nice building in Midtown
I learned a few very good techniques that will help me with my day-to-day tasks at work.
This course provided a good and practical evaluation of my time management habits and skills. It helped to reinforce that I actually have strong time management habits and skills. It identified a couple of areas where improvements be made and provided a set of techniques and tips to achieve results.
Overall, the class wasn't what I expected but I had some good takeaways. Though engagement with other professionals is always beneficial, I felt like more time could have been used by the facilitator to go over best practices or techniques. Though still relevant, the old video could use some refreshing.
I enjoyed this course very much. The course material was very easy to follow and our instructor had great insights as well as being very entertaining.
I thought that the class was very well balanced between text book, lecture, and class discussion.
Very good! Jennifer was a great instructor, and I feel as though I gained a lot from the class.
Very informative course with real world knowledge shared from others
Overall I found this class to be very useful and our instructor to be very effective. She provided great examples and also various ideas as to how to handle difficult situations and also great feedback on issues that I currently experience in my everyday life.
Trainer was awesome, and the class content was exactly what I've been looking for.
The Instructor was very good, and had a great sense of humor, made the class enjoyable.
I felt David was well prepared, professional and timely. He kept the class moving at a good pace and was engaging with the team. I found the information on the first day to be much of what I already knew however got a lot of "take aways" and "ah-ha" moments on day 2.
Overall the instructor and course were great. During the first day I thought I got a lot out of the course and my small group interactions. Our second day the material was just as good but our groups were moved at random. Due to this change I got a lot less out of the group discussions/exercises and was distracted from the material because I was placed in a group where the participants were less interested in the material and more interested in socializing. I believe that because of this I got much less out of the second day and will be reaching out to customer service about this.
Siu Ying S.
I thought the class was great and like the interaction. I enjoyed how we were able to look at our own situations and discuss how tho handle them.
Class was full of hand on interaction. Michael demonstrated and shared personal experiences in relation to the class material which increased my attention to what he was teaching. I have new arsenal of tools to use in my daily work.
It was a decent class, not overcrowded. The training was very informative. The instructor made the learning process fun and easy to understand. I really enjoyed the seminar.
Great job leading the course, engaging the class, and reinforcing the concepts.
Overall this was a very well run course. Properly broken up over two days, excellent useful content, and a great instructor to go with it. Patricia in a very competent instructor, and presents the material in a friendly and supportive manner. Excellent course if you are trying to get a balance in the workplace as well as your outside activities. 10/10
Instructor Patricia Q. was engaging, candid, helpful and the seminar allowed me to see where I can improve.
I did find the class interesting. I have found that some of my time can and will be handled a little differently.
VERY good topic, super relevant in today's workplace.
great content. DDDD (delete, delegate, do, deliver/divide) and outlook time mgt was most helpful.
Jim is a pleasant teacher he made sure all the students were understanding the subject and ensured everyone was involved with the discussions.
Always a nice environment for learning. Instructors are always knowledgeable and interesting.
should have done this years ago
Excellent course! Complete credit given to Patricia grasp of the course and teaching methods that included group activities and interactive discussions.
Facilitator was very knowledgeable and engaging with the class.
I really feel like this course provided me with the tools necessary to take my career to the next level!
It was a great peer to peer learning experience
Patricia was very engaging and did a very good job of taking what was in the book and applying it to real-life examples of things most of us do or don't do.
Darlene was great. The class size of 8 was very nice. The facilities were exceptional and I liked the coffee and soda fountain.
Katrina M T.
I think interaction with others in totally different fields of work, provides interesting perspectives. If I went to an entirely medical management course you would here that mostly everyone has the same issues, but solutions then tend to be the same. The differing environments creates different solutions and ideas. So hearing different perspectives helps me to think outside my 'blinders' of my position in healthcare.
Wonderful coverage of many issues.
Instructor was great and the content was fantastic! I can start using the skills I learned right away.
I really enjoyed the training. Our teacher was wonderful and very fun.
The training was very good. The instructor had a very practical approach to the course material and allowed time to discuss as a group which was very beneficial.
The facility was great and it was only a 10 min. walk from my hotel. Although there where other trainings going on you would not have known it had you not seen the people taking breaks or coming out of the other training rooms.
AMA hires good quality professionals that present material that is applicable to life in both personal and professional capacities that have bolstered my growth as a person. Carl is the ultimate professional, I really enjoy his approach of sharing practical applications by relating solutions to our everyday life.
Carl Huffman was an amazing instructor. I can't wait to sign up for another course that he teaches.
I don't know if there could be a better instructor for this course than Carl. The class went fast for a relatively boring topic, but Carl was able to address personal questions and keep the class going and we learned a lot.
Carl, Is a very intelligent speaker and taught us great techniques and ideas to implement in our daily life.
Patricia was excellent. answered every question we had. I will highly recommend her to others.
We saw a movie clip of 20 min, but at the end we did not have access to it, and I think it was important to have the access.
Patricia was excellent, held our attention and keep us engaged for the full 2 days!!
She is an excellent instructor - nice touch, kept it relevant and interesting throughout.
Patricia is very skilled in this area among others and made it a fun 2 days experience. I have acquired new skills and approaches. Thanks again Patricia.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and had good feedback and examples
I learned a lot more than I expected to and truly think that I will have a great impact on my professional and personal life
David provided a lot o great ideas for me to use when I get back to work
Lorena was an incredible instructor! I also loved the meeting software "Adobe Connect"
I feel that I benefited much more from this class than I initially expected. The instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging from beginning to end. The material was spot on and the instructor tied it all together very well.
Having both the AMA handout and the Time Mastery book was a little confusing. If there's an opportunity to have it all in one booklet, I think that would be helpful especially when you're trying to pay attention to the instructions and find the page.Overall, I am very happy that I took the class. Lorena was awesome and engaging and I will definitely keep in touch.
I really enjoyed this class and I will put everything that I learned to good use in the coming years!
The instructor was very enthusiastic and challenged the group to remain engaged in the class.
Very positive experience.
Very comprehensive and interactive. Sheila had a great way of communicating the meeting information so that all understood and were engaged. And not to take for granted, she ended on time! Proof that she is a master of her field.
This course left me with some great take aways and actionable steps to improve my time management. I left this seminar feeling empowered.
Overall, I really enjoyed this course. It really helped me find ways that work to manage my time and not to feel too overwhelmed at work.
Sharing personal stories and "weaknesses" humanized Marcia. Please include a reccomendatin for participants of this class to read the book "The Hampter Revolution" about controlling email.
Amazing teacher who kept the class engaged with stories, activities, etc. Everyone participated and it was a great experience.
Great teacher. Good curriculum.
Very knowledgeable and very help if you don't understand the material. Love the Time Mastery profile test.
I found the emphasis on how to set priorities and define goals extremely helpful
Very informative and concise.
Lorena was awesome and very accommodating since I fractured my finger and couldn't write (she let me use my phone to type notes).
Lorena was an excellent presenter
I truly enjoyed this class. It made me really take a step and look back my over job and prioritizing my job duties.
The class was enlightening on how much time is lost for the average worker because of poor time management. With some fairly reasonable adjustments to your day, more can be accomplished in a shorter time. Jim was great. He is very personable. He provided quite a bit of information that related to the material but not specifically part of the curriculum. All material was applied to real world examples.
Curriculum was interesting and Instructor was excellent. Provided great feedback and was very intuitive with his students. Constructive classword
I thought it was a little light on content, possibly a one day seminar at a faster pace. I thought there might have also been more "tricks of the trade".
The class was engaging and had lots of information.
Overall materials were well presented and within the timeline that was discussed in the agenda.
Maxine made this one of the more enjoyable seminars that I have attended.
Michael and Dehlia were awesome! They helped us when we needed help- explained everything thoroughly and made the class enjoyable
Barbara A. D.
Michael was highly engaged and kept all participants interested in course content. Great interactive exercises helped us all to collaborate together in a virtual environment. Very enjoyable course. Learned some great tips and tricks for time management that can be easily employed.
This course far exceeded my expectations! My colleague has never taken a AMA course and will be sure to recommend this to her.
I would have loved to have feedback on an indiviudal basis. Meaning the facilitator provide me with indiviudal feedback on my strengths and weaknesses.
This Time Management class presented interesting topics that are applicable to work and life in general. Few of the topics I will share at work and family. The instructor encourage participation and presented the material in an excellent manner.
Training was very good and informative. It could be shortened to 1.5 days, but not packed into 1-day.Patricia was excellent and worked great with the group, adapting to our situations and experiences.
I really enjoyed the class. Patricia was great! Her approach to questions and scenarios was communicated very clearly and in such a practical way. I really liked that it was very interactive and that she kept the class engaged both days. This created an open dialogue between the classmates, where we were comfortable sharing experiences openly. I found the course (and Patricia) very helpful. I am sure to make use of the new skills that I've learned.
Excellent information and discussion during the class. Fellow classmates were also involved which added to the overall, real-life situations.
Both the Instructor and location were great! I live about 40 miles from San Francisco (where my training occurred). It was very easy for me to ride the local Rapid Transit as the AMA Training Location is only a block from the rapid transit station.
Best AMA I've atttended out of the four I've taken
Choon Mei L.
It was very helpful! I learned many time management techniques I could use at my current job. The great thing is that it not only pertains to work; it can also help with my decision-making skills in my everyday life. I've learned to come up with alternative ways of saying "no" and delegating work (routine, procedural) to others to free up my time so I can work on other things.
I was very pleased with the seminar. I learn a lot of techniques that I'm planning t o put in use.
I liked that it was a small group of people and that the faculty member was able to tailor her presentations to include our individual issues we were there to work on.
This time management course was well set up and Patricia is a fantastic instructor. She tailored the course to the needs of the people attending and answered the questions we had with some great ideas. I would definitely recommend this course to my coworkers. Thank you and nice job!!!
The instructor was absolutely wonderful. I would take any course she taught. She kept the class completely engaged.
Material was relevant and teacher was knowledgeable and prepared to teach the course.
The facilitator was very knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information and tips that will be useful for my workplace and personal life too.
Teacher was very knowledgeable in the top taught. She provided a lot of examples and hand-on activities to bring about clarity on the topic.
Great experience, instructor kept discussion interesting and on point
The instructor was wonderful, engaging, and enthusiastic.
The course content was great!! I learned a lot about managing my time better. The instructor did a wonderful job!!
This course will most definitely help me with my time management skills in the future. What I learned in 2 days will help me in my professional and personal life.
Fantastic course. Lorena was engaging and well informed. I learned way more than I planned.
Great instructor. High energy and attentive. Not afraid to challenge the classroom. Great course content with practical and effective strategies to implement.
This training provided me with techniques that I was not fully aware of that are beneficial for anybody and can be applied to daily activities.
This class taught me how to better manage myself and my time to be more effective in my position.
The seminar leader had a cool way of engaging participants in what normally would be the reading part of the course. She turned them into flip chart exercises and had us move from chart to chart. It was a nice way of getting us out of our chairs and actively participate in each module.
Carl was an excellent teacher and provided great time management resources to our class.
The information was good and I liked working in groups but it would have been nice to be able to share more of our group projects with the trainer to possibly get some feedback on what we planned etc.
Carl is an excellent instructor. He his very knowledgeable and experienced. I love his practical examples from real live.
Relevant, transformational, and effective training course. Ray could not have presented this information any better. Class remained captivated throughout class time as well as intermediate periods. Excellence delivery style!
Ray is an excellent instructor and the class had full application for what training I needed.
Jim was very personable and insightful. The course content was just what I was looking for.
great experience. David kept it upbeat, plenty of cross functional play
I would suggest trying to group people by profession example manufacturing in order for people to relate and share experiences
I found that this training reinforced the "5 Choices" training I had in March and really tied everything together.
Always room to grow, and showing a willingness to adjust noticed. Asking questions, and or explaining what is required and what is not, can go a long way for first impressions. Also reiterating of course module questions involved for participant response, can improve participant experience. Thank you for the training refresher high points.
Ed did an excellent job of keeping us engaged and willing to discuss the subject matter. The group breakout sessions were fairly painless compared to the last course I took; Ed chose good topics for group participation and feedback.
An interesting training session providing a lot of tools to help management time more effectively.
Ed was a very effective presenter and the course was beneficial.
Great course! I went in feeling overwhelmed and concerned about taking 2 days away from work. I left the course feeling confident about turning the chaos in my office into an organized workspace and using my time more effectively.
I do believe the information presented by Carl will be life-changing. This is not an exaggeration. Today is my first day at work after the seminar and I have already started implementing many things that I have learned. Carl held my attention and interest during the entire 2 days. It was truly an eye-opening experience. I cannot say enough good things about Carl and the content of the seminar.
I thought the content was relevant, and I'm looking forward to reading both workbooks more thoroughly. I think the bibliography could be updated with more recent publications. I would like to have spent more time with the Time Mastery Profile, perhaps focusing on the top three issues and going over these in more detail. I learned a lot just focusing on one during the seminar. Also, I would've appreciated mixing up the seating on day two. The instructor knew the topic well and seemed to enjoy the subject as well as teaching. I feel motivated and equipped to make some important changes. I think Time Management could offer a Part II to check in with people.
Excellent trainer/coach.. Very engaging/
The subject matter is useful, and the presentation and discussion of the material was interesting and relevant.
Very, relevant and engaging.I feel that Patricia addressed specific areas of interest for all the participants.
we have received guidance on how to delegate up to managers and prepare our time log to show them how overcharge we are
This course was very helpful to me...I feel that I cam away with several tools to help me manage my time.I can see it helping me both professionally and personally.
I enjoyed this course so much. The course leader was outstanding and I will definitely be exercising the suggestions offered to better manage my everyday life.
This training was very helpful in managing my time going forward at work and in my personal life. I feel I can find that work/life balance with the tools I gained from the time management training.
Facilitator was excellent
The moderator was excellent. The only reason I only gave it good it is because the time was not enough. Even though Carl was very diligent managing the time (of course) we could have benefit from a third day or extra half of day.
This is a good course for first line supervisors.
The instructor was very good. Very well spoken and was awesome to deal with. I hope to have him in the future.
I was engaged and enjoyed getting to connect with the other participants and exchange experiences
the teacher was great but I would have liked the suggestions to be less nebulous and more concrete
Howard tailored the training to the people in attendance and wasn't "by the book". In my opinion, this is very valuable to all.
The class was very helpful. Couch gave me various tools to manage my time in a more productive way. Although only one out of the five modules we went through was appealing to me, the other 4 added knowledge to what I thought managers would do.
I received a lot of useful information that I can utilize in my position. The teacher was very informative, took time to make sure all our questions were answered and kept the class very focused with his teaching style. I am glad I was able to attend this course.
I feel that this seminar would be much more beneficial if it was tailored a bit more to types of positions and managerial levels. A lot of it was very basic for most managers and I was hoping to come away with more tools and systems to put into place to assist me other than email prioritization and tools.
The class was great. I learned some new things, and it was quite therapeutic actually. Just sitting, talking, and being with the new group was an experience in itself. Patricia was especially great. The French accent, the fact that she really seemed to care...priceless.
It was very helpful! I learned a lot!
Excellent tips from instructor and she really encouraged participation from everyone.
Very impactful actionable details
This was a great seminar. My instructor did an excellent job at tailoring it to the specific attendees.
Lorena was an excellent trainer. Kept the group very engaged.
Excellent instructor. He was very knowledgeable and equipped with the communication skills to train. The content was very much right on track with what I was looking for. I took away valuable tools as well as a completely different outlook on managing my time. This was time well spent!
The instructor was very knowledgeable and attentive to our questions
these were handed in to teacher
Wonderful experience. Highly recommended. Looking forward to taking future seminars.
Not everything applied to me and my field but I learned a lot about myself and goals I need to be setting.
Provided all the tools i need to focus my time more efficiently.
It was a good experience however, the material does not really apply to my position as there is nothing standard about my usual day. My job is more like a Chinese fire drill.
Instructor had and shared the ability to get participants in the class to think deeply about the subject matter and keep it interesting.
I like the instructor a lot and she was very good at what she did. She was also subtly but continually testing us to make sure we were listening.
very engaging class with a lot of learning material. instructor was very knowledgeable and in command of the class and all material.
I thought the course was good. I approached information overload territory towards the end of the second day.
The course was well structured and well instructed. Patricia did an excellent job providing the material which was presented clearly. She was warn and very good at keeping everyone on task. I learned a lot.
I enjoyed the group discussions - it helped me realize better scenarios of how to deal with my situations.
i think that most young people that have their first job and have been in that role for 6months to one year would benefit the most from taking this course. Obviously all benefit from it but i sure wish i would have taken something like this when i first entered the work force it would have definately helped me along the way.
The seminar was good and informative. There were lots of examples to help understand what really time management is about.
Although the group activities enhanced the seminar, there should have been a bit more of consulting by the instructor
I learned much from the program. I would have given it a 5; however, I found some of the strategies to be a bit vague without concrete examples of how to implement them.
I think Sheila did an excellent job, the class was not boring and it kept everyone engaged and attentive.
Good interaction, and converstaion by the team of classmates.
The class, materials and instructor were excellent.
This course was very imformative and felt like a therapy session. I was able to get in touch with my core values and how the apply to my every day. This will allow me to adjust my behaviors moving forward to better my self-management. I hope pam never stops instructing courses, she is great.
Facility was great and the trainer was well versed in the subject and was able to make it applicable to all.
This was a very informative class. It provided me with several tips/tricks to tiling in my very day life to be more efficient with my time.
I'm a new AMA faculty member and learned additional good tips and practices from Pam.
I have been able to hone in on the areas I need to improve to increase my productivity and effectiveness at work and at home. I look forward to implementing new habits, and getting rid of poor ones, to my daily routine. Pam is an excellent instructor!
I thought this course was a confidence booster, a new way to approach typical time consuming problems.
Great seminar with a lot of useful information.
Didn't feel like there was too many actionable takeaways. Would've loved a summary at the end of what we should be doing.
This was an informative and well presented seminar.I recommend it for colleagues.
The course was very hands-on, personalized and the class was kept invovlved.
The AMA Time Management course was great. I immediately began to implement many of the skills/ideas and suggestions as soon as I was back in the office. My only constructive comment would be: I wish it was three days long! We kept digging and digging into more and more interesting topics. The attendees were as varied as their careers but we all had a common thread and common experiences that we could all relate to.
Maxine was very professional and easy to understand. Her examples were spot on and she kept the class engaged which is something that is not easily accomplished in this type of training.
Carl was a great instructor and the class was very well run and extremely helpful.
Carl was an amazing instructor and he provided a wealth of practical information. My experience has been very positive.
Good class. I did a pre-class assessment but did not find any reason for me doing this.
Received many (professional) life altering tools to manage my time. However, the lecturer's lack of technological knowledge was evidenced by how he breezed through that particular section of the course..
I enjoyed the level of class participation as well as the feedback given by Janet throughout the class. I felt the flow and pace of the course was great and breaks were set perfectly.
Janet was a wonderful instructor who got the point across and facilitate the class well.
Good instructor, allowed everyone to elaborate on their challenges at work.
I think the length of the course was just about right, I was starting to go into overload towards the second half of second day. I think the instructor knew the content well and was engaging. I enjoyed the interaction with the other participants and learning about their job situations. The material is applicable to real-life situations. I would encourage others at my workplace to participate in this course.
Great Instructor with practical examples and effective course material.
Darlene had really great energy and kept discussion moving.
I was concerned to be honest about what can you possibly talk about for 2 days about time management. I am fairly decent with time management and I found this course extremely helpful. I can only imagine if someone truly needed assistance how beneficial this course is!!
Carl kept the class involved (and awake) both days. This was so much more than just a lecture!
very informative, good pace. instructor was friendly and warm, very knowledgeable.
Great class size (6 attendees), very interactive.
Very value added.
Contained practical and useful guidelines/advice which could be used in the office as well as in personal life
Darlene was a fantastic instructor who had addictive energy, who was informative, experienced and eager to let the class share their input, but who knew when to keep the lessons going. Anyone who takes her class is truly lucky.
Instructor overcame the constant interruptions of a participant who must have had a mental disorder.
Class was good I thought it was heavy on the project management side perhaps. Perhaps it would be nice to have a sales focused training
The course was able to help me identify where I am wasting time.
This will help me keep up with time and get things done efficiently and effectively.
Mr. Huffman was clear and direct.
