Excellent trainer and good course. I would recommend the course, always good to learn from others and share detail. Very good trainer.
A good course good strategy on managing team and keeping trust. Was a good session worked well in a small group setting allowing the trainer to offer more individual and tailored attention as necessary. What I found most useful was how to effectively plan, communicate and also evaluating and re-evaluating my approach to managing my remote team.
Excellent trainer and good course. I would recommend the course, clear and quite thought provoking.
