Very useful seminar. Thank you!
I really liked that this training provided tools that I could actually use to increase my effectiveness as a manager.
This seminar was very helpful. I learned many new things that I am excited to bring to my workplace. Henry did a great job of keeping the class engaged, and he had many great examples from his own career on how to be a successful manager.
I really enjoyed the course and thought Henry was a fantastic teacher. While I admittedly was starting to 'fade' on the 2nd day (not used to sitting in a classroom anymore!), I do wish we would have had time to delve in to some of the other content in the booklet and workbook.Overall it was inspiring and I hope to continue the practices and implement them in to my everyday life!
very engaged faculty member and allowed time for discussion
Trainer was arriculate, thorough and engaging.
Luz Elena B.
Very good teacher method and paceVery knowledge/experienced teacher in the topics discussed
Cynthia was an excellent presenter. Info given was real life and I was able to relate that to my work days.
Like the way he kept all of us engaged.
The instructor was simply amazing. He shared personal stories of leadership successes and really did his best to ensure that each of us were acknowledged and engaged in the 2 day session. The overall content of this course has been phenomenal. I learned many great techniques that will put me on the path to becoming a more influential and motivating leader.
Duncan is a talented and well spoken instructor. It was obvious that he has a passion for helping people reach a higher level of potential in their lives.
Very encouraged by how productive our time was and how knowledgeable our instructor was on the course material.
The seminar was so very well done in all aspects from materials, to education to interaction.
I felt the instructor was upbeat and kept everyone involved. The course material was one point and very useful. I'm looking forward to implementing the new techniques I learned.
Some slow points, some valuable areas
Provided a great structure for me to grow as a manager. Added new insights, ideas, and concepts while reinforcing other familiar ones. Provide actionable tools and resources that I will use going forward. Held me accountable by having me think about my own team and when I would implement important strategies with them.
it was very good training , I learned new important habits from it, I feel am different
Michael and Matt were great. Really enjoyed the interactive discussion in the class and the live seminar format.
This was a very good class and Michael was a great instructor.
Instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to present this information well.
Excellent course. Instructor was amazing.
Instructor was great.
Class was very informative, really learned from this experience.
I think, by far, that this course led by Henry was - by far - one of the best AMA courses I have ever attended. Henry was informative and interactive. He shared his personal stories, successes and some struggles, as he practiced these 7 habits professionally and personally, as he was transparent in letting us know that he is a practitioner and not a teacher.This was a two-day course, and on both days, the individual sitting next to me was not focusing and paying attention - as the person was paying attention more to her phone - later interrupting my experience and concentration. I do wish that as a facilitator, he took initiative (privately, of course) and spoke to the individual as to not be a distraction.Also, while the facility is great, there was another class next to ours and their conversations could be heard through the thin walls.Other than that...two thumbs up.
Great information. I felt engaged the whole time. Great instructor.
Small class room, great instructor and the course materials have enhanced my leadership/manager toolbox.
Excellent training and reorganization of material. Good real world examples and exercises.
I received several take a ways from this training course, the meeting planners and the 4quadrants spoke volume to me
Enjoyed the training.
Michael did an excellent job conveying the material and involving the class. He knows the material and did a great job presenting.
The training definitely had some key points that I will try to apply to my management style. I enjoyed the usable reference materials provided.
The information was clear and on point. All new management should attend the training.
The instructor was excellent, and the tools covered in the course will be very helpful.
Very good information on planing
Presented useful tools I had never encountered. Course Leader (Cynthia Cuyjet) presented material well and kept the group involved.
The course add me things that help me in my work
Wendi(facilitator/leader) was very effective in tying the Habits to actual situations which made the training very useful to those that are seeking a higher standard of leadership. The small group environment and expertise of Wendi made this a very good investment of my time (and money).
Wendi made this training amazing. Her delivery is top notch and made this memorable. I typically get tired sitting in these types of trainings but not this time!
Wendie did a great job...giving life relevants.
Great class and instructor kept it moving and interesting. I appreciate how she kept it real world and not just reading the material. She done a great job
Michael was focused and managed to cover the course material in the two days allotted. I enjoyed the class and found it very informative.
I believe that it is excellent tool to used since it is based on successful people practices
Cynthia was a great instructor! She kept a great pace over the two days, and had a wonderful balance between individual and group work.
I thought this class was very beneficial. The material was presented in multiple ways which made the class enjoyable. The teacher was knowledgeable but deferred to students to answer questions, which I thought was great. She did a great job of trying to relate the items to our real world examples and help us work through the process.
Micheal was a great and thoughtful teacher. This put a of the techniques I already use into groups or channels to better execute and pursue.
Great course that gives you the insight to create innovative ideas for OTJ training to develop your leadership skillset.
The course provided several elements that can be used immediately in the real workplace.
Useful information and examples to better manage myself and my team.
I enjoyed the class. The instructor was easy going and knowledgeable of the topic. The lack of pressure to participate made it easy to want to participate.
I think this training session was very good, the instructor did a great job in presenting the material over 2 days. It also help that the instructor was a practitioner of the 7 habits and was able to give real world examples from his past experiences.
Excellent speaker and very engaging!
Henry was fantastic, great facilitator and kept the conversation on point.
I would like to know what other classes she teaches for AMA?
Had some very good useable ideas that we will be implementing
Great course. Well organized and delivered. Time well spent!
Enjoyed the course. The instructor was very informative.
Cynthia was an excellent instructor. I have heard several of the 7 Habits principles before, but she was able to put a new light on them and make them seem more exciting.
The training will help me advance my leadership. There were several helpful resources to use.
instructor did a great job
Wendi was an engaging instructor and very familiar with the material.
This training was engaging and heavy with food for thought, most of which will have practical use.
Very good content. Really makes you re-think your approach as a manager
This was a make up session for me, having participated in Apr 2018; the information was so clear it's as if I took the first day yesterday
This webinar enlightened me to new possibilities and perspectives, not only to make improvements on myself as a manager, but to improve my team's work performance to benefit the institution.
The classroom was a great refresher of the 7 habits and the tools, resources and ideas are realistic. The instructor couldn't have done any better!
The 7 habits have timeless relevance and apply to my professional and even personal life. The instructor, Michael, was knowledgeable and engaging and AMA's live online seminar was even more valuable than I expected--and I had heard great things!
The instruction was clear concise and contained very useable and valuable tools to be a better manager.
The projected content was washed out by the lights over the screen and one of the ceiling speakers popped and hissed during videos, poor audio and visual quality. The community group in the large meeting hall next to our classroom was extremely loud the first day and it was very distracting, at times making it difficult to even hear our instructor. It is only these factors keeping me from rating the experience as excellent.
This training provides the tools that help you focus on what is important in your day to day work.
I found the training course to be a valuable tool in honing management skills and an enjoyable interactive program.
Interesting class - engaging instructor.
Interesting material and tools to help properly evaluate priorities and performance which will lead to a win-win situations.
Great course! Many useful tools that will immediately be implemented. Mary, our course instructor is a wonderful teacher.
The training was very interactive and included attendees from different professional backgrounds, which added value to the training.
Jen was enthusiastic, engaged in the entire program, and sincerely interested in us learning the skills.
There existed a good balance between lecture and group activities as well as applying what weâ€™ve learned
great class and Cynthia had a great way of teaching.
It was great training, not only did it get me thinking about different ways to manage my personnel, it also gave me different tools to use.
It have a very good metarial that i would utilise in my works & with my team
Provided many useful tools.
I liked the way the material was presented, in a way that encouraged participation and application to our own business.
Enjoyed the content and the instructor.
Well preparedDelivery was excellentContent is directly transferable
This was very informative and educational seminar. I personally learned a lot about how to manage properly.
Course material was relevant and delivered in a way that was easy to process.
Great instructor. Great material.
The information was good and the instructor knew the material very well.
Great topic and instructor. Very inspiring and transformational.
This course provided some good material for organization and great strategies for team leadership and personal disciplines that will help become a better worker and manager.
I enjoyed the training. It was very engaging and applicable. I would definitely recommend it to my colleagues.
The instructor was great. She was a very engaging teacher that helped put real life scenarios into action.
Supper nice school with gifted teachers.
Great class; able to apply immediately to my work
Mary was great fun
Siu Ying S.
Engaging and valuable course work.
Good managerial exercises to involve all class participants.
Very well paced and efficient course. The subject matter was particularly relevant to my role and was presented effectively.
Michael was a fantastic instructor. I would highly recommend his courses to anyone. He kept us on point, brought humor to the classroom and shared some of his personal experiences to illustrate concepts. It was clear he is a master of the subject material.
Instructor was knowledgeable, prepared, and interacted with students. He engaged everyone in the room. I have been enlightened by the knowledge shared. I now how tools to become more effective.
Good product material, great class participation for sharing of best practice, leadership by trainer very professional with lots of real life examples shared.
Nancy was very clear and easy to understand. She also made the ideas very applicable to daily life, I will definitely be applying what I learned from her. She was also friendly and enjoyable.
This training far exceeded my expectations. It was challenging but motivating. I left feeling enlighted and empowered. Excellent tools are provided so that students can easily put the materials learned into practice.
Nancy was great . Very knowledgeable.
Great content and presentation by all involved.
It was well presented, the pace was good and the presenter was clear.
Great coverage of the topic, exceptional facilitation, good balance dedicated to each of the Covey Habits with useful takeaways and tools for each.
Michael was extremely informative and engaging.
Mike kept the class exciting and individuals engaged.
This was a good class , but it was not geared to the medical field so a lot of the material did not really pertain. We did our best to take what we could and make it into our own.
The content was very basic. No real "Aha" moments.
Loved how Wendi was able to create synergies between the habit and each individuals way they could apply it to their industry/situation
Instructor was phenomenal.I learned a lot about myself.
Excellent instructor, great presentation skills, great overall class
This instructor had the right background and knowledge to give the training and include specific examples and experiences.
The instructor was very engaging and encouraged questions. the other students all had different experiences so that was also helpful.
Class size was small so it was a perfect setting for more one on one sessions
The training material is designed very nicely and Mike was extra ordinarily covering all the topics with great details but still keeping us on the timeline to be able to cover all the topics including the great discussion with all the brilliant people in the room.The course also included a lot of exercises which really enabled to apply the learning.The Resources provided with the course are awesome to be able to apply the techniques in my daily schedule and improve myself to move towards "The Effective Leader"
Very knowledgeable instructor, kept the correct pace. Added to the presentation from experience to make the lesson clearer. Course material was very helpful. Provided many insights to improve management skills.
R. Lillybeth D.
Great seminar made me learn more about myself as a Manager to be able to lead others.
I enjoyed the class and got a lot out of it. Really enjoyed the interactions with managers from other companies and found their insights enlightening.
There were some good takeaways, but overall I felt like much of the information was "fluff"
Mary was excellent. Personal, knowledgeable, a great listener and facilitator. I think the Covey material is good, but I question some of the content.
Very well done course. Excellent Instructor.
I thought the training was very informative and helpful. I think there could be a few more video's as explanation about how to do different things. Such as the 5 min meeting and those. Show start to finish. We did them and presented but to see it in action would be great.
I found the course very useful in improving my understanding of how to handle managerial situations. The instructor did a great job balancing between moving us forward and taking time to work through individual struggles we were having in the workplace.
Good class but we seemed to move a little quickly since it was a small group. Seems like we got all of the content and it was good and practical content.
The instructor needs to work on pacing for this program. The introductions were 1.5 hours, far too long and detracted from time to present course material. Either this should be a 3 day course, or timing must be better regulated. Both days ran long and the last hour of each day had materials presented in a slightly rushed manner. The instructor was good at presenting the material, but pace was distracting.
I have read the book multiple times and was really excited about the class but I thought it was average at best.
The 2-day course was informative, immediately useable and refreshing.
The instructor was great. I have never attended anything like this before. The room was a little tight. I got a lot of information that I have never seen or heard of.
It was well-organized and easy to interact.
I was very impressed and engaged during this training, which was surprising in a good way.
Liked the resources information and the video examples. They helped to apply the information received.
the group activities are not my most comfortable style of learning as i get the most out of lecture style seminars, however it was a very good two days. learned wuite a bit about myself and not just what my job is
Really great course. All participants very engaged which really helped.
I think I'd prefer the more frequent breaks on the hour of 10min. as opposed to the (2) 30min breaks.
The course was great, the instructor was knowledgeable, and sessions were very interactive for an online course.
I understand the reading quotes out loud makes it easier to pose questions to individuals verbally instead of over the chat, but it is reminiscent of the 3rd grade. Unfortunately, I don't have any recommendations on how to remedy this other than making them aware that this is an opportunity to answer questions, not just read out loud. It was also confusing to jump back and forth between Management Essentials and the workbook. A lot of it was redundant material and I would have much preferred to just have one book to work out of.
Great class, I learned so much
Hands on and useful info
I was worried this training would be repetitive of trainings and materials Iâ€™ve received in this past (not through AMA) but I pleasantly surprised at how much I learned and enjoyed this! Jen was amazing! She was very approachable and kept us interested and engaged. The way she taught kept us focused and I felt like I really understood the information. look forward to more classes!
Jen was amazing and really engaged everyone's learning style.
Great information given within the class
Loved the style of teaching, great class!!
Enjoyed the class, gave me some documents to be able to use with planning. Will use the win win performance agreements with my staff. Will continue to adjust my style and grow as an individual using these habits.
I enjoyed the practice, examples, and demonstration of the tools.
Excellent delivery of course material. Thoroughly enjoyed the course.
Good tools and dialogue.Very informal but direct and interactive.
Great content and examples by the instructor.
Great class over all, I would highly recommend this course to any of my colleagues. Duncan is a great teacher.
If I could, I'd give this somewhere between 4 and 5. I thought that the instructor-led portion was really well done, but I would have appreciated more time to read through the booklet and really digest the material. It felt as though 2 days made the training a bit rushed.
Instructor was very knowledgeable but sat the entire class. That was a different very low key experience for me.
I was very impressed with the entirety of this course. It far exceeded my expectations! I came away with seven practical new skills that I can apply immediately at work to positive effect.
Michael did an excellent job of really connecting the dots with the training content and my daily work life, which helped me to really understand the concepts.
Michael is an outstanding facilitator for management trainings. He genuinely listens and relates the topics to our work backgrounds. It is very difficult to leave the training without feeling impacted in a positive way. I canâ€™t wait to implement the strategies that I learned from the 7 habits for managers.
There were introspective questions that came at me from an angle easier to answer than the typical "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" type of question. Cynde was lively and realistic in many ways.
I really enjoyed the class! The exercises were interesting, the conversation was focused, and the topics were solid :)
This management training was mandatory for my position at my company. Regardless, I enjoyed the program and felt that I came away from the class with useful tools and broader perspective of being a manager.
The program provided me with several processes I could implement immediately to help better manage my work load. I also provided 'forms' I could use to better prepare for common tasks. I was extremely skeptical about the forms, but the proved to be unexpectedly useful.
Instructor was engaging, passionate and took time to help individual issues without rushing the class
Cynthia was a fabulous teacher that was engaging and knowledgeable. She made the whole experience very enjoyable!
Cynthia was outstanding! She made the material interesting and highly interactive.
Jen is a very skilled subject-matter expert on this topic and inspired this old workhorse to approach the job of team leader with renewed enthusiasm. Thanks, Jen!!
Great class that generated a lot of self awareness and out of the box thinking. Nancy did an excellent job of keeping everyone involved and I really enjoyed the class.
I thought the training course was good; however, for the price it should probably be at least a three day course.
this was my first time in a AMA course and it really help to Prepare my Daily plan in my job
The flow of the training was excellent. Our facilitator did an exceptional job relaying the information and moving us through each Habit. He did a great job making the content interesting and engaged the entire class. I really appreciated all the information that was provided and tools to apply to my daily practices at work with my team. Thank you!
Great trainer and really good material
Came away with great tools to be a more effective manager.
Itâ€™s evedint that the instructor have been doing this for long time so it was very routine. I expected a totally deferent aproach and level of delivery.
Wonderful course and instructor!
Mary was awesome
It was an extremely positive experience that I am sincerely grateful for. It was engaging and I left feeling like I learned skills that I will be able to apply immediately.
I will put this new knowledge to work immediately
great Material too little time
Michael was an excellent instructor. Christina was great providing all of the technical assistance.
I thought the facilitator was excellent in relaying the information and helping us apply it. The tools/forms at the back of the workbook are excellent and I'll be sharing them with my management team.
The course is good though some portions seem rushed
Michael was very professional and informative. He kept us interested and participated.
I learned a lot. Loved every exercise and enjoyed every minute of it.
Ms. Cynthia is well spoken, clear, and concise. a true pleasue
Good class insights help invoke some thought that will help me In my future
This course lacked discussion about real issues, and didn't seem to have the flexibility to deviate from course material to address my needs. There was a lot of emphasis on the management tools provided, which made them feel like a one-size-fits all prescription to solving management problems. The principles that were presented were good, but I would have preferred an environment where we were able to discuss and explore them more deeply in relation to the problems that we face. End the end, I felt like the agenda was to get through the course content, and that communication was one way to the class.
Michael was highly engaged with his class. He allowed us to utilize real life examples and events and incorporate them into the material. The information resonates and absorbs as an easier vehicle when you have an amazing instructor, like Michael, conducting the training.
Instructor was very clear and helpful
