4.9 stars The instructor was very good at providing real life examples of the concepts that were discussed. There were very useful tips provided for Outlook use. Also, several worksheets alternatives that are likely to be useful in my daily work.John Briers

4.5 stars Jeanette was about as good a instructor as you could ask for when it comes to time management. It's a breath of fresh air when an intructor brings in their own experience and metholody to a course as opposed to just following the training materials. A good instructor uses those materials as a base to build their course and expand in the most relevant areas. This course really helped me step back and take a look at myself and how I handle my day-to-day work. Now I'm just excited to get out there and use these new skills. Kyle Snyder

5.0 stars I really liked this course! I felt I learned a lot! It was more than just time management but overall happiness in the workplace. I think that having a small group was extremely beneficial because our instructor (Lena) could hone in on our personal issues with time management and the workplace. Lena was very skilled and well-read in time management and life management. She brought very valuable topics and experiences to the table. I would definitely recommend this class to others!Julia Brenner

4.9 stars I was very engaged in the class. Juana was very personable. She has a great personality and uses a lot of real world examples to explain the tools learned in class to really help them to sink in. I would recommend this class to anyone that would like to learn effective time management skills. It opened up my eyes to areas that were taking up my time that I never even considered. The facility was also very nice and I was impressed with the classroom setting. It did not feel like i was sitting in a classroom at all. Ralph Strzewski
