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.).

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.
" I thought the course was very interesting and the flow was very comfortable. "
" The amount of integration was a bonus - it keeps attention heightened. I also found the atmosphere to be very welcoming. Susan is a great instructor. "
" I was very focused all three days as the program suited our environment very much. "
" The course was highly interactive. Everybody was engaged and involved. It also addressed many real world situations. "
" The training was excellent; far more than I expected in terms of amount of information covered and the depth in which we were able to get into some of the topics. "

" I felt confident before the course and now I feel even much better while knowing the recipe and the rationale of the win-win negotiation parties. "
" Thank you for a great learning experience. I found that some of what was learned is good to get my private life organized as well. Thanks. "
" The course was very professional and friendly. Ms. Rose was a joy to be around and she made all the role-playing games not as intimidating as I thought they'd be. "
" I enjoyed the areas that focused on the process, as opposed to the project management side. "
" I enjoyed the speaker. Susan was organized and spoke well. The course will help me control my workload by using the task bar. I am excited about using it. "
