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.
" It was a small group, which made it more of a coaching and mentoring environment, enabling the participants to readily apply the new techniques and concepts to their own environments. "
" 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. "

" he fact that there were eight participants in the seminar was great because it made it more interactive with more opportunities to participate or ask questions. I also like the exercises we worked on. "
" I was very focused all three days as the program suited our environment very much. "
" Overall, an excellent seminar. I have recommended it to other dept coworkers already. "
" Lucie was a dynamic speaker and made the course materials relevant to my job. "
" The material was very appropriate and in-line with my previous training. I really enjoyed the section on dealing with conflict and the self-evaluations. "
