I love the engaging format. Working with the team, learning how to communicate in an open and inclusive manner. So counterintuitive to how I have seen most training and education conducted
Thank you for your comments, wisdom and for facilitating my learning with behavior of others in an organization. This course help me build on my ability to be a manager, leader and to have the ability to formulate a plan for problem solving. Critical thinking or thinking outside the box is an essential quality for a person in the helm of an organization. This course has improved on my abilities and will be used in future situations that may arise.
I must say you sure wore your glasses on your nose (lolol). Every step of the way you were there pushing us in the back hard! (ouch). But I think I can now take a breather and feel like I’ve accomplished something. Even though you made us work, it felt like I was an entrepreneur traveling back and forth on the road. I was getting tired and drained at times but I hung in there. I think the entire class did also. I hope to always be in touch and continue to excel in my experience. Who knows maybe you might find me on here teaching a course (haha).
Thank you for helping me successfully complete my doctoral degree. I know my research topic wasn’t the easiest since it was on the edge of new knowledge. Your guidance was always timely and supportive.
I have to thank you for creating the environment enabling us to search for excellence and the good in ourselves and in others. It is quite possible that your course – and its inclusion of drive and personal goodness – will have the greatest impact on us – no longer students but as emerging leaders. With such lofty (yet achievable) goals… we can contribute to improving the quality of life for others and ourselves and the business stakeholders.. All while maintaining our integrity and expecting it from others.
I have learned so much from your mentoring through the dissertation research. Each step of the way, you were there for me with answers that guided me and challenged me. While I must say I didn’t like how you never just gave me the answers, but now I understand the wisdom of your guidance to teach me how to fish. I thank you for the great patience you’ve shown me. I’m a better researcher.
The Transcontinental professors were the most caring and practical professors I’ve experienced. They brought their consulting experiences into the classroom to make the theories come alive. I’m able to create proposals and gain respect at the national level because of what I learned. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to exceed in their careers.
I love the participation in our workshops and being challenged to use the tools and practices as a group during exercises. Watching the practices play out in a real-time situation is helping me grasp the information and recognize opportunities to implement the tools or improve my approach to the situation.
The knowledge I gained has helped me move from a lecturer to a professor and now a dean of the business school. I’ve been able to consistently publish in peer-reviewed journals with the research knowledge I’ve learned.
