Excellent material as usual, with engaging and interactive content. The CEDAR method seems very helpful, and running through the 2 case studies was a great way of learning it.
The most useful part of the course for me was to highlight the difference between leadership and management, and to highlight what leaders do, and how to lead effectively.
I thoroughly enjoyed the four courses with Impellus.
I found doing the ‘Process, questions, objections and value’ course first really beneficial as it set a good foundation to build on. It’s a great course for looking at your job role and what you, as an individual, add to your organisation. It could be used as a motivational tool for anyone feeling a little discouraged.
Effective Communication is a great skills course for any level of staff. It has a good enough mix of exercises and theories to keep you interested and even the most experienced in the group agreed they had learned something.
I found that I have a better understanding of my management style and where I could be improving and adapting my style. And also to better understand which approaches are best for what kind of situation.
Trainers were very knowledgeable and facilitated the courses in a fun and enjoyable way.
Following the courses, the team got together, competed presentations showing what we learnt, how this will effect our roles moving forward and also how this effects the long term plans of the business. We also discussed our own communication styles and how we could better improve the communication as a team and across the business.
