  • Janet Smith, New Zealand High Commission Ottawa Feb 7, 2019

    I have shared the course content and the forms with my High Commissioner and he is now interested in all staff taking the 7 Habits for Highly effective people as a group in the office. I found the presentation, the working in groups and the tools very useful. I found the video clips to be insipirational as well. She was very approachable, able to add personal experience to make he topics easier to understand. She made it interesting and fun. Kept to the time allotted. Very good and knows the topic very well. I have taken a few courses and I find everything from start to finish very professional. I also recommend the course to my colleagues in other countries. Also to the Ministry of Foreign and Affairs and trade New Zealand.

    Very easy to follow and retain. Not all applied to retail which was a bit of a time waster but I tried to take what I could use in my day to day which is quite a bit. Very well presented

  • Past Participant, Giant Tiger Feb 7, 2019

    I know the course was more generalized for all types of manager, which is great. Just have to adjust some concepts to better suit our needs as a retailer

  • Past Participant, Denso Sales Canada, Inc Feb 6, 2019

    Course was great. Laurel was a great facilitator providing key elements to every single question. She was able to understand questions and provide feedback on how to apply the tools provided on the course into my job. CMC is a great company and have the environment to provide great courses
