Comments From Past Participants:

“This is a great course, and would recommend it to any supervisor, or any individual who is on track to take on a leadership role in the future.”

 “I loved the classes at different companies and tours.  It is always good to see a different perspective than the one you have every day.”

“As holding my first management position, this course definitely has guided me down the path that would have taken years to find on my own. Saved me a lot of trial and error. Great jump start.”

“This course has expanded my knowledge and provide helpful tools on how I want to lead. Most importantly for me, it has shown various examples and discussion on what an outstanding leader is, and provided me with a template of how I want to be seen as a leader. Following the template will ensure that I am effective in my career.”

 “It has helped me to better understand my role in the organization.  I have already seen situations that I would have handled differently before attending this class. I feel that it has made me a better employee and more valuable to the company.”

 “It has made me try to be more of a coach than a supervisor; made me to try to get more out of the ones that sit back and let others do everything;  challenged me to get to know my people.”

 “Being able to tour other industries in the area let me see first-hand how other companies operate and the kinds of goods/services they provide.   Most instructors kept the classes interesting and encouraged active participation.”

“Overall, the classes reopened my eyes to change awareness and seeing that we are not the only company that has problems hiring and retaining good help. It exposed some of the weaknesses such as delegating and conflict management so I can try to develop more on these skills in time.”

 “This class has completely changed my attitude. I was tremendously overwhelmed when I assumed my new role. Now, armed with the tools presented and insight from others, I feel empowered to apply what I have learned and effectively face my daily challenges.”

“It has given me much more confidence in my job and personal growth.”

 “There have been so many ideas that I have gained from these classes that I have implemented on the job. The discussion planner worksheets that have been provided to us have been extremely useful in setting the pace for any coaching session that we have and maintaining the focus of why we were having the discussion in the first place.”
