Harry kept my attention throughout the 3-day seminar, I found the information that was provided, and the format was very effective.
Michael was an excellent trainer and motivator, I am extremely eager to utilize the skills I learned in the training to my everyday work life.
I thought Michael was a great instructor and very analytical in his teaching method. I learned a lot and he was really interactive with our group. Very cool, calm and collected and would slow down if we had questions or elaborate on an issue.
The course provided a fresh approach and perspective to leadership and management and helped me to unlock leadership potential that I will use and develop further.
We discussed a broad range of topics. The pacing and coverage was very good.
Harry is a very engaging instructor and is very knowledgeable regarding the course material. He ensured that the course was interesting and relevant during each segment.
Jim was a great facilitator, he did an excellent job weaving in opportunities that I shared with him, gave sound advice. Also, he did a good job with the pace of learning for me.
Jim definitely displayed that he is a seasoned trainer.. The method and process he used to teach/train the group was outstanding. Every topic was explained in great detail and had applicable reference points. I would/will be continuing to use AMA (Jim if available) as a platform for learning and gaining valuable experience.

Great learning Experience, really good Instructor.
I thought the course did a good job a giving an overview of management philosophies for new managers.
I appreciated the small group, the role play, and the many tools provided by the instructor beyond the materials in the course itself
The techniques were realistic and easy to apply. Helped me gain confidence in some things that I already knew how to do, I just didn't know how to put in to action.
It was a very helpful course for my managerial growth
Class was excellent, I really needed it.
Mike was very thorough and it was comfortable talking with him. He covered all different situations and listened to all of our personal experiences.
Excellent Seminar. worth it at all.
it was a lot of information to cover, hard to absorb; too much presentation, not enough practice; videos were outdated, could have spent more time diving into situational leadership . . . (maybe practice exercises with each other)
Great course with great information.
There was a lot of valuable information throughout this course. The instructor's energy was contagious.
Enjoyed Larry, he used his experience as a business leader to give us "real life" examples and how to use communications and coaching skills.
I did not agree with many of the points in this lesson. Specifically, the fact that you think managers cannot and should not motivate people. Great managers are also great leaders who can and do in fact motivate people and staff to be better and achieve more.
I enjoyed the extra items outside of the class but some videos outdated. The handout material was pretty plain and does not serve as a stand alone guide after the course. Instructor was great and clearly knew how to communicate with classmates in this format well.
the topics that were taught were right in line with what I needed to succeed in my new role as a manager
Dr. Mary was an extremely effective teacher. She was very positive and always helped to apply real world scenarios during the learning experience.
The content was mostly a refresher for me, which was good, but there were only 5 people in the class so I only got to learn from a few of my peers.
Mary, you are a wonderful instructor. I apprecaite your passion and enthusiasm for teaching this course.
Instructor was enthusiastic and knowledgeable
Great opportunities to interact and role play as a group. One of the best classes I have done to date
I love the diverse nature of the class and it was a lot of fun. Very informative and I will highly recommend.
Rafi is a great teacher. His life examples relating to the course was very interesting.
Great real-world examples and engaging hands-on activities.
Overall this training was helpful to me as a manager. I learned some new performance management strategies and came away with some good tools for giving feedback and delegating. I felt that the videos and some materials were outdated, which detracted from the feeling that this was a cutting edge professional learning experience.
Karen was Nice and very informative.
Outstanding seminar. Very well led.
Instructor kept the class interestingGreat topics and tools to improve my management skills
As someone that is just starting to managing people the course is perfect
Refael is a great teacher and makes the material very interesting
Great class and great instructor
Course was very informative and useful.
Interesting material, presented very well. There was a clear rhyme and reason to the course plan, and the instructor introduced new skills that could be very easily implemented in an office setting (and elsewhere, really). A valuable class.
I felt that the class had good material and that the instructor had an excellent background in the subject matter. He gave lots of relevant examples and anecdotes to help explain the concepts.
The instructor was warm, knowledgeable, and had excellent presentation skills.
Great program. Instructor was very knowledgeable and able to insert personal experiences to tie in and make it easier to understand. Instructor is able to also add his own additional information to presentation.
Refael was very engaging and knowledgable.
Rafi is amazing, great delivery style. I couldn't have ask for a better course.
The instructor was very informative. Instructor kept my attention and was not boring. The content was helpful and relevant.
Desiree's class was very informative and she kept the class moving and interesting.
I enjoyed the play out scenarios.
The training was not at the proper level. I would like more executive training. More course clarification would be beneficial prior to training.
This is the second training I have taken from AMA and I have found the instructors to be extremely competent and the training very applicable. I highly recommend it.
Exercises and examples were very helpful. Training was conversational, which helped to facilitate sharing of real-life examples rather than just theoretical scenarios. Videos and take home materials were also useful.
Excellent instruction of valuable skills for successful management
