Here’s what they had to say about this course...

Becoming A Better Listener


Very powerful. I could see a lot of the bad habits I was making when having conversations with others. I would like to become a generous listener and have more engaging conversations, your course has given me the guidelines to help me move in that direction. Thank you!

Build Trust and Respect In the Workplace


Should be marketed, facilitated, and presented to HR professionals and learning professionals. This is invaluable for employees and managers to build trust and respect in the workplace and to promote collaboration and results.

Closer Relationships


This course is actually helping my communication with my husband of 34 years. Who know that after so much time we could grow even closer simply because of better communication skills. Thank you.

Engaging and Profitable


I thought it was fantastic! Because of the ridiculous overextension of my own daily duties, I found that I didn't save the five minutes I needed for the readings. I only read two of them, yet I was immediately able to profit from the imparted wisdom! The two I read were well-written and utterly engaging. I've saved the others for later.

Effective for Executives


Very good informative course. Last lesson especially good even for a former Hospital CEO

Life-Changing New Skills


Thank you for helping change my life and for reaffirming and consolidating these new skills into my brain.

Combatting Confrontational Situations


I have loved reading the material, and despite my 75 years of studying various subjects I have learned a lot. The last lesson was particularly useful as we all find ourselves in situations where it is necessary to confront others. I have done it and the person walked away... initially, but came back as he knew I cared. Thank you, I learn continuously.

Reflect and Improve


This course has helped me relook at my relationships and conversation style and the immediate improvements needed. I highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you Jordan

I learned to be assertive


This course has helped me to notice the importance of listening and taking in what the person is saying. It also taught me when to stop a conversation when it gets argumentative and walk away from the Alpha member. Thank you so much.

Practice advice
