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. John Males engaged us in what he was teaching, and used many activities and role-play models where he could see our strengths and weakness.” View Full Letter (PDF)

Thank you so much for the great two-day outstanding workshop! It was very inspiring, informative, really well presented and I enjoyed each topic offered. I look forward to implement the tools and utilize my knowledge by practicing. The most interesting part for me was the behavior style and communication skills sections. Recognizing people’s different behavioral styles, understanding how to interact more successfully with others and be open-minded on different approaches can help tremendously in life, at my workplace and in my personal life.  View Full Letter (PDF)
