2007 Gold Award
Canadian Management Centre is the proud 2007 recipient of the Gold Canadian Award for Training Excellence, awarded by the Canadian Society for Training and Development (CSTD). Our winning entry, Make It Happen: Leadership Fundamentals Series is a program designed and developed in partnership with our client, LoyaltyOne™ (formerly Loyalty Management Group Canada Inc.). It ranked high in all categories of the judging criteria and was awarded based on the following:
Originality. The modular curriculum offered unique elements to keep participants engaged throughout the series.
Instructional Design. The curriculum was designed to meet the needs of the target audience while respecting adult learning principles.
Evaluation Strategy. Kirkpatrick's method of evaluation was built into the program to evaluate satisfaction, retention and behaviour change.
Packaging. The materials were branded to suit the needs of the organization and offered visual appeal.
- Communication Style. The program used straightforward business communication, relevant to the target audience.
" This was very interesting and useful given that is was delivered in the context of real life experiences and the workplace rather than approaching it from a theoretical point of view. "
" I liked the fact that Harry covered not just the hard skills, but also the soft skills. He showed a real interest and went out of his way to help us learn. "
" I like how open the course was - open discussion and not following hundreds of pages in a binder. "
" I found the course interesting and progressive in its approach to explaining a fairly dry topic. "
" I liked the small group setting, friendly atmosphere, and that all participants came from a different field of work and shared their experiences with the group. "
" Rob was a very experienced instructor for detailed project management with hands-on knowledge for the PMP exam. "
" Gives me ideas/strategies to apply to real life, not just text book (school). "
