Coming into this training I was like 'Okay, here we go with another training.' But I learned so much during this 12-week course and walked away with more of a positive attitude...90% better. 

--Tonia O, Goodwill

I am pleased to express my profound satisfaction with this remarkable and highly influential training program. It has been an enlightening journey, enriching my understanding of both my managerial role and the dynamics of the management team within my sphere.

Notably, Sandy Merritt, the coach, displayed an exceptional aptitude, offering astute feedback and furnishing the program with top-tier educational materials consistently.

--Sam M, Goodwill

This course has given me better knowledge of my role as a manager and made me more aware of where projects stand and what the work outlook looks like. It helped me establish responsibilities and time management.  We’re still getting it all instituted, but I can see progress and improvements. The insight was worth the financial and time commitment.  It’s eye opening.

After having everyone go through the management course, there was a significant change in the understanding of each individual's role and responsibility within the organi-zation. As the president, this has allowed me to focus on other areas and has provided a clear line that lets my managers know what is expected of them to support the company.

This experience has changed the way I manage as it has enabled me to give better direction and communicate information more effectively. As a result, my employees understand the direction better than they did in the past, which has improved communication across the board, and personally, as a result, I got a lot of my time back.

In my opinion, to get the most out of this course, it's important to collaborate with your team and encourage them to attend the training too. We had half an hour after each session where we discussed the results and shared our thoughts on what we were learning. It was a very positive experience for everyone involved.


--Clark Brown, President, DF&I


The 12-Week Management Training program was invaluable to our management team.  By collectively participating, we all heard the information first hand and it was much easier to implement what we learned as a result of this.  I have benefited from coaching over the years, and this program was a way to extend training to a wider group in my firm.  It was well worth the investment and we will continue our training with ActionCOACH as programs become available.

Sandy was excellent. She provided valuable insight and sug-gestions. She was available for one-on-one discussions regarding any con-cerns we had. I highly recommend her.
