The trainer told us to get drinks, make ourselves comfortable and ‘do what we need to do’, then asked me not to read my phone. I only read messages from home but felt this easy necessary and contradictory. The examples and activities were too basic and some inappropriate.
I did enjoy the course however so far for day one I found it too Behavioral and not pragmatic enough for management and leadership skills. There was not a good balance in knowledge, skills versus behaviour however perhaps that is because I am used to more corporate based learning for management. I did find the modules slightly repetitive that you would find in many Behavioral courses. Nikki was however a fantastic facilitator and brought a brilliant energy to the room.
