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.

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
Keep you focused and engaging
Delivery style - Excellent; Pace - Excellent; Personable - Excellent
Excellent Class! Cynthia was really knowledgeable!
Very well run class. Great content.
Cynthia did a most-excellent job in explaining the material
Really interesting topics and things to think about.
Overall helpful, inspirational and with lots of little nuggets of good information.
I really enjoyed the course. Countless applicable resources. I would love to rewatch some of the videos if possible. Also glad we invested time in the application of all the supporting resources.
Instructor was very easy to follow.
Henry was a great instructor. Very engaging and very knowledgeable. He provided great insight. He was very friendly and made the lessons very understandable and real-world applicable.
Henry has inspired us to improve our time management and effective skills with clarity and good examples, he is an inspiration to us.
He was excellent and provided real life examples on the topics being taught.
The material provided for the training and the level of expertise demonstrated by the instructor were excellent.
the instructor was awesome, he keeps the class interesting, fun and you learn at the same time..
Facility is nice. would be great to have a seating area with tables to bring lunch to.
The training was quite good and the instructor was very knowledgeable about the subject. It was not what I expected going in. The materials were a little more basic than I would have liked.
Course was good, though I felt that in a few instances the instructor could improve the pace of the presentation. One example was the first 30 minutes of the second day, which were essentially a spoken review of the topics of the first day, and it seemed that class engagement drifted a bit at that point. Additionally, Henry skipped many of the slides in the presentation and incorporated information from other presentations, which left me wondering if some of the material skipped might have been useful...?
Great course. Very good examples
Outstanding course and presentation.
Henry did a masterful job at conveying the material and engaging everyone
Great instructor. Kept everyone involved
I really enjoyed this training. Henry did an excellent job leading us through the 7 Habits, reinforcing each one with exercises, videos, and anecdotes. The pace of the training was just right. I was pleasantly surprised by the content of the training and think it will be useful in my work.
Henry was great. Very engaging and knowledgeable.
I'd recommend this class to any manager or potential manager. There's a lot to be learned from this course in managing not just people, but yourself, your relationships with others. Our instructor, Wendy, was very good at relaying the information, allowing conversation to develop throughout, balancing teaching with providing real world examples and allowing us to coach each other as well.
Course was scheduled at an appropriate time. Instructor was very experienced with material. Felt rushed trough the 6th habit, and didn't get to cover the 7th habit due to time constraints. Instructor spent too much time on certain sections.
very informative class/seminar.
I thought the pace was good. And moving from videos to exercises, to reading helped keep it interesting.
I love the enthusiasm of the instructor!!!
Very engaging and informative instructors
I picked up a ton of great tools and tips that I will definitely use in my daily work practices.
Well spoken and attentive. Via the Web is not a hindrance. Material is spot on.
mike is amazing-and kept us all engaged even though it was a web-based training, the power of his skill 'jumped' through the computer screen. What a blessing he is!
I have done some online learning in the past and this way by far the most productive and engaging.
Overall the course was engaging and the instructor was very clear and systematic in his approach. I appreciate the interactive elements being included.
I felt there was too much interaction, which sort of hindered the learning process
Mike did an excellent job he was very imformative and engaging!
Excellent class, excellent instructor. Material flowed comfortably through the two days.
I found this seminar enormously helpful on a personal and professional level. Mary was a fantastic teacher!
Good topical material, examples and engaging trainer.
The provided material was good.
great course, very helpful
Materials provided and instruction given was very good. Really like how the training booklet is laid out. The class would probably be better served if it was a 3 day or 2 1/2 day course.
Class will be very useful
Overall a very engaging experience.
Great course with lots of useful examples and tools to take back to work and apply.
Jen was very knowledgeable and informative on her topics and teaching. She blended a strong mix of real life examples and book readings to apply her curriculum.
The hotel is located next to several eating locations. The hotel had a great room, lights and beverage service.
I cannot say enough about this seminar, from beginning to end. I will push everyone I know to take this course.
It was lively, interesting, practical, and timeless-- the principles and values taught goes down years but never fails and is full proof.
Duncan was an outstanding facilitator and provided great insight to the theories embedded in the program by thoroughly covering the content and sharing real experiences.
I liked the fact that we were actively engaged not just listening to our speaker or watching videos.
The one criticism I have is that the material covered is extensive and two days is an ambitious schedule.
Michael was a fantastic instructor and the curriculum for the two days was incredibly helpful. I learned ways to manage myself, which is formal training I never received in my 10 years as a professional. I found that to be extremely beneficial.
I liked the way the training was presented.
It was a good course overall. I felt that it was difficult to apply some of the concepts that call for measurement metrics, which are more applicable to sales type occupations, in my particular responsibilities where our outcomes are more success vs. failure.
Overall the training was excellent, but because the room was too big for the group, there was a sense of being 'lost' in the environment. This was not in the control of the facilitator and I still benefited tremendously for the training.
The interactive setting was very effective
the instructor was great; the content was so-so. felt gimmicky.
This was an excellent seminar/course
Really enjoyed content. Instructor was very dynamic....he offered great applicable personal scenarios and rich experiences.
Michael was a great facilitator and instructor. His approach - using the materials, eliciting responses/experiences from attendees, and drawing on his own experiences - was helpful to learning the material and staying engaged on the applicable topics.
The course was the right pace and provided plenty of opportunity to interact and engage with fellow participants. The course struck the right balance between instruction, activities, and visual media.
Michael was extremely knowledgable regarding the course. His delivery of the course was extremely effective
The course content and presentation were good. Given the amount of information covered, it moves pretty fast, and not a lot of time is available for the concepts to "gel" before moving on to the next topic.
Great class, I will definitely use some of the techniques in my daily work.
Well structured, organized, and timed. Instructor was great. However, a little change in teaching dynamics would be helpful to keep focused through a long day of training.
Very informative and helpful.
Dave was a great instructor. He provided good examples and kept me engaged throughout the entire training session. There were a number of "light bulb" moments that I have already implemented into both my personal and professional life. I'm so glad I took this course. It was well worth my time and will be a valuable asset in my career.
I found this training very applicable to both work and personal life and I was able to start using it immediately afterward. I would highly recommend this class to anyone open to improvements.
Was skeptical about doing this via webinar instead of live but it was really great and interactive. Looking forward to my next webinar
I just took 5 choices to extraordinary productivity and there was some overlap material. The rest was very informative.
Dave was an excellent instructor. I appreciated the training - diverse activities, instructor-led PPT portions, written materials, exercises, and videos.
Very helpful. Identified problem areas and actual solutions. The videos were fantastic.
The instructor was excellent, and a great facilitator. I especially liked that the class was not too crowded and we were able to talk more freely about our different environments. I liked that with each topic examples were given and the facilitator was most excellent in providing their experience in different scenarios as well. Great training!
Wonderful course. Very excited to take my learnings back and apply.
There were a few topics / concepts where we spent an extensive amount of time on that I felt could have been shortened. But, overall, I enjoyed the content of the course, and I always enjoy the discussions with other participants - there is a lot of value there.
Wendi did a great job teaching. She was well organized, witty, and fun!I do believe that participants would get more out of the session if they read the book before attending the training. Only 2 of 6 read it in our class, which surprised me.
Overall, good information - definitely took away some new skills to organize my day into what is truly important. The pace of the course was a little slow for me personally. I would have like a bit quicker pace.
Instructors were well prepared.
Michael was a thoughtful and charismatic leader who kept the agenda moving along and on target. The course was very insightful and will be very helpful in my day to day work.
Wendi was amazing, she truly made this class an excellent experience. I truly enjoyed and took so much out of this seminar. You truly have an amazing trainer and if I could I would take every seminar that she presented at.
Everything was great.
Class was great. Well spoken and clear.
The 7 Habits for Managers seminar was a compact, interesting and helpful class but also fun experience. Each individual habit is very well explained, trained and discussed. The teacher, Henry, made it a very interesting class to understand the habits and learn how to utilize them in the daily work-life but also private-life. The provided trainings material and literature is sufficient and supports an easy recap and reminder what the habits are and why it's important to adopt them.
It was really insightful and hope to practice the skills. It felt slow at in the beginning, would like more interaction to practice the skills.
Instructor was very enthusiastic and did a excellent job presenting material. Material was well structured, well written, relevant and very useful.
Mary was very knowledgeable and she worked to make sure that we all felt comfortable.
Mary is a phenomenal instructor. She keeps the class fun, is well versed in the material and uses pertinent examples to bring the material to light. She understands that the students are professionals with busy schedules and she ensures that they get adequate training and the most for their time and money.
I absolutely loved this course. Mary Lewis is such a wonderful instructor. I was fearful that two days might be boring, but when it was finished, I was sad it didn't last an additional day. Her style of teaching is both effective and entertaining. I can tell she has true passion. I am excited to take more courses and I credit that entirely to Mary.
