My favorite thing in the class, and what will be most helpful to me, was identifying the different tactics and neutralizing strategies for each one. Very helpful stuff.”  View Full Letter (PDF)

“I attended an Outstanding Management Skills Workshop, with John Males. Excellent highly recommend!!! The course content was great and covered many areas as a new manager that I felt were very good.
