    This has been invaluable. Steve’s real world experiences really help reinforce the topics he’s delivering training on. I felt engaged the entire time & am energised & excited to get back to work to start applying some of the lessons learned this week.

    Very insightful, lots to learn & take in.Good examples of real life scenarios. Lots of material all very useful/valuable.Heavy on time and effort-could be a challenge for others, consider slight reduction in material.

  6. Erik Van de Wetering says:

    Hard work but pretty easy to stay tuned in. I reckon the ppt could do with a few more visuals/graphs. Thanks Steve for entertaining us!

  7. Geoffroy Schneck says:

    Coaching video is quite bad(old & cheesy).Pace could be diminished,homework outside of hours reduced or removed.All topics interesting, but some (KPI creations, survey design) out of scope of most 1st line managers who can’t decide on global matters.

  8. Franz Hassels says:

    Only issue was with the time of year the air con was not very effective. this was negatied by the copious amounts of ice-cream!

  19. Robert Mazurkiewicz says:

    Q5: The booklet is not always intuative.Without the talk track it would be hard to follow in some cases.In time referencing the booklet will be more challenging as you forget the talk track. Overall it was great-Thank you!

  20. Pawel Wankowicz says:

    It was a lot of material for a 4 day. Maybe stretch it to 5.
