it was a very good experience
I overall enjoyed the course. Monica was a good instructor and made the class fun. I liked the role playing scenarios and the personality test we took. Overall the course was very good and I recommend to anyone who wants to supervise or manager any team.
Bob was very inspiring and I felt like I took away a lot of very valuable information.
Fantastic seminar. I received so much more than I thought I would in such a short period of time. I had very little knowledge of supervisory skills; after 3 days I feel much more equipped and was provided the framework I need to handle most situations.
I loved the interactive nature of the course and the examples and activities used throughout to make the information and concepts "stickier."
I found the class to be very valuable. Robert did a fantastic job of engaging the learners and kept it interesting.
Bob was great. Very good at making it entertaining for us and he didn't just talk the whole time. Bob kept us engaged through the whole course.
The course shared some good tools to work with but overall, it was not worththe cost paid. For the high cost for this course, AMA could have at least provided lunch and a facility which the students do not have to pay for parking.
The class was good and informative. Robin was an excellent instructor, I felt included in discussions. The guides Robin provided were helpful and informative.
Very Helpful; Got very nice feedback from other attendees and instructor.
This was a well taught and informative class.
The class was informative and engaging.
Bob did an excellent job - I couldn't imagine taking this with anyone else for an instructor. I was initially very skeptical about the usefulness of a course like this, but Bob's infectious enthusiasm changed my mind. This course is a great way to add structure to raw talent.
Excellent course for new supervisors taught by an experienced professional. I enjoyed learning new skills to use in my role as a supervisor.
Bob was a great teacher. Very engaging
This class is more introductory than I expected. I would not recommend it for individuals with MBAâ€™s as it was mostly review.
Enjoyed the class. The instructor was wonderful.
An excellent instructor with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Highly recommend to all
a lot of information
There is too much content that needs to be covered. The course is three full days, which is already too long in my opinion. We did not have enough time in three full days to cover the amount of material that was in the book. I'd recommend removing anything 'nice to have' and focus the material on what is truly needed to impact positive behavioral changes for the average new supervisor.
My Experience in this seminar was great, I was able to learn many skills for Supervisor. I will recommend this seminar to new Supervisors.
Really loved the training. Elizabeth was a great Trainer. She kept the entire group engaged. Tons of information to take back and implement into my day to day routine. I would recommend this training for all new Supervisors.I loved that the facility offered a breakroom. It was very nice that beverages were provided. However not being a coffee or pop drinker. It would have been nice on the cold mornings having had walked to have Hot Chocolate offered. Even just the packets would have been great. I liked also that the offered fruit. The only thing I didn't like is on last day we were told we could not bring food because there was a group having food. I felt maybe instead of having a spread in the breakroom for one group this should have been put in another room. There are multiple groups there and that just seemed wrong.
This class was very beneficial in developing me as a supervisor
It was an excellent seminar. I feel like I learned several skills that can help me in my new role. It was very interactive and everyone participated. I felt like we were able to bring our own unique situations into the group and get input from others as well as practice what to do in certain situations.
I thought the class was very beneficial and my instructor was very thorough. I would recommend this class for any new supervisor.
I thought it was great. It was extremely informative with good strategies on how to manage my position. The instructor was very well spoken and knowledgeable.
Trainer keep everything moving and interesting.
Marcus was an excellent instructor. He had a professional presence and spoke very eliquently. He was very detailed in the training and gave tips that he used and experienced when he was a manager.
Over all I believe this experience was very beneficial. Monica helped clarify a lot of things I thought I knew and helped me learn many new things that will help me become a better supervisor.
body language and point across followed by perfect examples.
Ed was very knowledgeable and communicated the information very clearly. The exercises were informative and helpful. The breakout sessions were a challenge because participation by some students was not guaranteed. For example, the role-playing exercises were challenging since many participants didn't know how to even start the discussion.
I enjoyed the interactive activities which helped me understand the information better and to be able to apply it to my new role as a manager.
The course content is very good. It really helps new supervisors improve their management skills.
For me, I found the method of teaching about types of people problematic because it stereotyped so much, and then tried to say not to stereotype people. Learning to see people as individuals and see their value a far more critical piece of being a good manager. I had a big problem with this major aspect of the curriculum.
Involved, did not lose interest
I thought the subject matter was great and the instructor was knowledgeable.
I thought the coursework was very relevant for me. I walked away with a couple key takeaways that I intend to implement
Michael was a great facilitator, engaging and gave great examples based on his experience
i got a lot more out of this than I had expected going in. It was very hands on and touched on several topics I had never even thought of.
A lot of material, well presented.
Bob was a WONDERFUL instructor! He did a fantastic job taking us through the material and highlighting topics that were most important to us. He made us feel comfortable asking questions and his answers were always genuine and thoughtful. I also enjoyed that he didn't read straight from the book/powerpoint. He always started each topic asking what we felt was most important/why. He was incredibly engaging and I found the content to be valuable and well presented.
I enjoyed the course, everything was very helpful.
I think that the material covered was very appropriate and important. The training was informative, interesting, and engaging. The materials provided were helpful. Bob did an excellent job as the instructor. He was clearly very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and he presented it in a way, that again, was interesting and engaging. There was a good balance between lecture, visual aids, a video, group activities/exercises, "Q&A", etc. Bob was professional, an effective speaker and teacher, and was very personable with good energy, as well as a good sense of humor.
Course was great, content was on point and relatable to many aspects of my current position.
Alvin is a great teacher, He makes the training interesting and enjoyable.
The seminar was very informative and the instructor knew how to relate the material to everyone involved. This class is worth taking whether you're a new manager/supervisor or you have been doing it for several years. You'll come away realizing your strengths and areas for improvement.
I love coming to these classes and dread for them to end. Very informational and eye opening on many aspects of life, professional and personal.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and led a very engaging class. The topics applied to my challenges that I face day to day.
Alvin kept the group very involved throughout the course.
Alvin was a great instructor! Very energetic, humorous and kept on task.
there was an attendee in the seminar that was very confrontational and difficult to deal. I almost thought this was an actor or a plant but nothing came to light. This became a Distraction. other than that I thought the seminar and the instructor did a great job.
I liked the way it incorporated a lot of information from different angles regarding Management.
Training was excellent, instructor kept everyone engaged
Robin had a lot of experiences relevant to the topics in which she shared at the optimal times during this course. Her teaching style is logical, upbeat, and hands-on. I returned to my office inspired, refreshed, and ready to get to managing!
I enjoyed the pace of the instruction and felt that the instructor was very skilled in teaching the course.
Monica was a very knowledgeable and enjoyable instructor to learn from. She made the class very enjoyable while clearly relaying the information in a fun and memorable way.The class material was very useful and I plan to save my papers to look back over in the future!
Such a fantastic course with a fantastic instructor! The three day time period was perfect before getting to the point of feeling 'burnt out' or bored during the class. I would absolutely take another AMA course again!
Amazing class. Good foundation for new supervisors. I liked that only 5 people.
Robin was very engaging and knowledgeable.
Very engaging class and good class size. Great perspective on how to look at different Management concepts.
Overall everything was good except the video about the generations was a little confusing.
I found that the information shared by the instructor was exactly what I was looking for. His knowledge was fitting for the class taken. I would highly recommend this class to others.
Bill is knowledgeable and brought in great real world examples from his experience. He kept us at a great pace, balancing time to dig deeper into certain topics as needed by the group, with the need to move through all the material in the time allotted. He did a good job encouraging participation from the entire group to help everyone find solutions to their specific situations and make it relevant for others.
The class was very interesting and interactive! The only thing I think needs to be updated is the video about different generations of colleagues. I found the content was outdated and information was not relate-able.
Was a great experience, we didn't have the time to see everything with details.
Michael was excellent and saved the class upon stepping in last minute. Darlene was not as relatable.
I thought Mike was great. Though, it would have been helpful for AMA to notify the class that Darlene was sick and we would have to wait 2.5 hours for a new instructor, as opposed to getting there and just waiting.It was good to have a lot of group work and feedback and I found a lot of the information useful and helpful.
I thought Mike did a great job of incorporating his real life experience into the course objectives.
I learned so much. I went into this thinking everything would be intuitive, but I learned a lot of new ways of thinking and actions to take. This class will be tremendously valuable to me as I take the next step in my career.My only complaint is that the pre-course communication was lacking. I had no idea what to expect going into the course. I didn't see an agenda or know what I could expect to gain, other than be a better manager. Tips on where to park, how to get there, etc. would have been helpful too.
The trainer was great and really challenged the way we thought. It was super fun and interactive. The best part was that he not only gave us the tools to manage others but also taught us how and why to use them.
- Trainer share his experience on the field and cover all the topics in a timely way.- More activities are required and examples of the different kinds o supervisor to make the learning process more interactive and vivid.
The course and instructor were great.
The experience was eye opening. I realized there were quite a few things I could do differently. I learned new ways that I could interact better with my employees without creating tension or animosity.
content was good, instructor could be better
Very informative and friendly while also being professional.
The layout of the literature is very informative and easy to follow. Like most seminars though, the success is based off of how good the instructor is. Yvonne is an excellent instructor that brought a lot of examples and life moments into the class. Great class!
The improvement on my coaching and performance appraisal was achieved, The presenter exhibited credibility in the material she was teaching.
The only thing I would suggest is moving the groups and giving us a platform for networking
Great content, very interactive, very refreshing.
Great course! Alvin our instructor was really good at putting us in situations that resemble real life scenarios and gave excellent coaching points on how to handle them.
Great atmosphere and very knowledgeable Instructor.
Alvin was a great instructor. He kept the group engaged and encouraged feedback and participation.
I enjoyed her style and examples. Great instructor.
Yvonne did a one on one with me that helped out a lot.
Very good class
Alvin was by far the best facilitator that I have encountered.
Alvin was an amazing teacher. Great attitude and very personable. Made the class fun.
Alvin was very knowledgeable in his teachings
Would not have been the same without the presenter. Bob is thoughtful, mindful, and eloquent.
Bob was an amazing instructor. He led the class through real scenario examples so that we could learn how to better utilize each concept.
The information was up to date and written in a way that was easy to follow. There was also a lot of opportunity to apply the information via hands on exercises.
Excellent teacher, patient and had good real live examples to illustrate the material
Extremely informative, answered all questions, fantastic stories relating to the topic.
Great, enlighting, introspective experience. Angela was very clear and concise!
It was a very helpful class. Showed me many ways to go about situations with Bosses/co-workers/employees
There is not enough words for me to explain how amazing of a job Elizabeth did. She was hands down the best trainer ive had in my training experiences. She was very detailed and made sure that we understood what she was trying to explain. The course over all was great. My hat goes off to Elizabeth for her patience and great examples on the covered material. Thank you Elizabeth.
Very well structured and presented material.
It was very good. A lot of material ... my only suggestion would be to make the material available digitally so one didnt have to carry around a bunch of loose papers, or at least make it all part of a single booklet so the loose handouts didn't get lost.
It was a great learning experience
Angela is by far the greatest instructors I've ever had. She keeps us so interactive that we love the class so much.
Excellent, the course was productive the Instructor was very helpful and gave me some good advice and ideas to me and my Supervisor row. Thanks a lot Susan hope to you in another seminar soon.
Best class Iâ€™ve taken in a long time. Angela is excellent and I learned a ton.
I think the content of the course its just right
I loved the course. Monica did a great job of keeping what could have been a very dry course interesting and engaging. I learned so much more than I thought I would and I am excited to use it in my daily interactions with my team.
Very interactive online seminar. The instructor did a fantastic job role playing to allow for attendees to experience how to apply the coaching method. Fantastic class!
The class was great. I appreciated that there were a lot of exercises that allowed us to help us better understand what we learned, put it into action, and use some real case scenarios to practice.
Ed presented the material in a very knowledgeable manner, infused with passion and personal stories bringing it to life.
Very informative. The instructor kept my attention well and was extremely knowledgeable.
Clear, went at a good pace, information was valuable.
Training was excellent - very informative. Great blend of both directive and interactive teaching.
Very clean and well kept. Great variety of beverages.
It was because of the instructor that I enjoyed the class so much. Bob taught from experience and not just from the book and he made us feel like he genuinely wanted us to succeed.
She is an excellent teacher.
Training content was very well thought and well organized.
The instructor "Deborah" was awesome!! She kept the class moving and covered many areas. I was highly impressed.
It was very informative and overall great experience.
Great content and knowledgeable instructor.
I wasn't sure what to expect going into the course; I was really pleased when it was a very small group in a classroom versus listening to speakers. The one-on-one environment gave us time to ask specific questions, role play, spend more time in areas where we wanted to discuss, etc. I think we could have gone a little quicker through day 1, but the second two days were informative and thorough.
Deb was a fantastic instructor. I felt like she really connected with the students and was very well educated in her field. I would love to do another seminar with her!
Very informative and interactive!
Informational, yet would have liked to do a little less instruction and more action. Becoming a new supervisor is a change indeed, therefore examples on how to handle situations would help put information into perspective.
I realized during introductions we did not talk about the line of work we were in. Might be nice to know what everyone does (other then supervise)
I had a very good time working with Desiree and I learned a lot! She created a light hearted friendly environment to foster our learning.
Day 1 was less informative than the following days, I found days 2 and 3 extremely useful.
I had a great experience at my seminar. I learned a lot. Bob was very enthusiastic.
Great class! Very helpful.
You could tell he was very passionate about the subject. It showed. I will recommend him as a specific instructor to colleagues if possible.
Alvin was educational as well as entertaining, I had a great experience and glad I was able to take part in this class.
Great class. It provided good insight into several issues that I need to work on as a manager.
Very knowledgeable and had great class participation.
my overall experience was totally awesome. engaging fun. got me out of my comfort zone and made me better for it. instructor was totally helpful can honestly say I was really interested and really wanted to hear and learn what she has to say. I learned a lot on how to deal with many things even outside of work and made me a better person overall. highly recommend!!!
The best seminar and presenter I've attended and listened to in nearly 20 years!
After a week I have already started a few of the practices. The interacting was helpful, and got into some conversations. Also nice to get different views from around the country also.
Laura was amazing! Straight forward, touched on real life experiences for everyone, was extremely helpful answering questions, stimulated ideas, and made the whole training really fun.
I received information that will help me manage my team and how to correspond with my supervisors
Laura was a great leader and keep conversation relevant.
pen and paper approach, excellent ! focusing on the individual one on one and interactive
Laura was amazing. She used personal examples to help show how to handle specific scenarios that each person had.
Very informative and positive. The instructor was pleasant and answered any questions we had.
I loved the information and the instructor who presented it. I felt like I learned a lot and she presented it well. There was a good combination of lecturing and group activity.
This course was a great overview of the supervisory role. Elizabeth worked through the content using the course material, additional information and drawing on the participants' experiences. She had a very practical and commonsense approach.I found it very valuable and I have a reading list from the external sources she cited in the course.
This class was a wonderful experience that encouraged participants to learn from the teacher and classmates.
Susan did an excellent job leading the training course. She made it interesting, informative and fun while still maintaining order and reviewing all of the material.
The instructor was knowledgeable, well spoken and presented the material clearly and effectively. I really took a lot away from her instruction.
The instruction was great! This training has made me feel more confident and equipped to do my job more efficiently. Thank you Robin!
The overall experience was great. The instructor was very knowledgeable she was able to use her experiences and relate it to the material. Which helped me follow along easily and to understand. She made the class easy to like with her approach and personality.
Best instructer ever had kept it interesting and very informative...overall great experience.Robin is the best and made some new friends.
Would like more time spent on time management. I think it would be helpful to review topics already covered (review).
The training was a good mix of relevant discussion topics and interactive exercises. We moved at a good pace through the material without being rushed.
Easy to follow, good disposition to answer any question and clarify any doubts.Good examples used, love the roll play it help me a lot
Her enthusiastic personality made the class fun and enjoyable.
Bob is an excellent educator. I left his classroom feeling empowered and fulfilled with so much knowledge. I appreciate his time, patience and his ability to make a multifaceted subject interested and fun.
Bob is a phenomenal teacher. In Bob's class, there was never a wrong answer, he asked the right question to get the best answer. The course ended on March 21, and I had the knowledge and confidence to have a meeting on March 23 and another scheduled for March 26. I got more than supervisory skills in Bob's class, I got self-confidence. Thank you, Robert.
I like the small class as it was very intimate. The small class setting allow everyone to participate and receive individual attention if required. In addition, the we were able to direct our focus on areas that were important to the group based on the conversation and questions asked during the class.
Robert (Bob) was a good trainer, but the course (not Bob) is lacking a lot of things. We really could have summed up the useful information in half a day or a day max. NOT worth the money we spent.
Overall, this course was extremely helping in giving me direction in my new position and the ability to embrace it with confidence.
Elizabeth kept us fully engaged, gave us all lots of individual attention and kept the seminar moving at a quick pace. It did not feel like we were in the room for 3 days!
Very very good class to take learn a lot and willrecermond to all the new supervisors out there
