Senior Program Manager
Before the workshop, I used to reject the ideas of junior team members when thinking of design options. I preferred the ideas of more experienced people. Now, I listen to all concepts and inputs from everyone before presenting ideas to our client.
Senior Project Manager
The workshop was an eye opener. Before, I thought there was only one way to a solution. When I had been assigning tasks to my team, I had my own expectations. Now I appreciate different approaches of people and I am getting better results from this approach to managing people.
Department Head
The workshop was excellent and we enjoyed the learning today.
