    Useful course. Some areas (networking, in particular) were fairly obvious. I found it effective overall, but perhaps aimed at people in less senior roles than the members of our staff that took the course.

    As a newbie to a leadership role, I found this course to provide me with 2 key things: 1) confidence. I was able to see that my insecurities were internal and not perceived by my audience. 2) knowledge. Though, only scratching the surface. I was exposed to a wide array of tools and concepts that have "started the gears in motion" for my own further exploration and learning into leadership. Overall, I think when I look back, I'll see that this course was instrumental in my career.

    I really enjoyed taking preparing for leadership. The small class size was great and Ann was very engaging. Ann was an excellent facilitator. She shared valuable knowledge and personal stories that helped apply the information we learned to real life situations.I thought that the class was great. It made me take some behaviors in to consideration such as asking more open ended questions, leading vs. managing etc. I thought some topics were slightly drawn out but Ann was good at managing what topics she thought we would find useful. Overall great class. Thanks Ann.
