Feedback from Recent Academy Event Participants:

 
  • From Identifying Your Leadership Style: Love it! Thank you all who make this available to us!
  • From Identifying Your Leadership Style:  Having gone to college with a management degree, I can say I know most of what Steve was talking about without necessarily being able to describe the concepts as well. He put context in theory... I learned a lot... a very good refresh for me.
 
  • From Residential Competitive Analysis: I have never seen competitors' equipment unless it was installed already in a home. Being able to stack them up side by side and compare the pro and cons made me feel much much better about the competition that’s out there. I believe in Coleman and this course solidified it for me. Great course!! I would recommend this to any salesperson in the industry.
 
  • From 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: ... wanted to tell you how much I took away from your training. It was by far the most beneficial session I’ve been in and was perfect for the place I’m in at this time, in my career and personal life. You do a wonderful job leading the group and teaching the 7 Habits. I was incredibly impressed and am so grateful...
 
  • From Spin Selling 2.0: What did you like most about this session? A generic answer.....but the course as a whole from start on DAY 1 to the end on DAY 2. It was that engaging! Powerful information and lots of value adds to take away. Very good instructors and the passion they have for the product. We will be sending more of the team to this class. Thank you very much for all of the training.
  • Very interactive and easy to apply in my current role. Thanks for also making the material entertaining.
  • Steve was a fantastic trainer. He delivered messages in a clear and direct manner that made the material easy to take in while relating the material back to my job specifically. Looking forward to other courses by Steve in the future!
  • The instructors made the class fun. I really liked the fact that’s they used relatable examples to make the subject easier to understand. Questions that were asked by all students were answered thoroughly.
  • I have 2 young boys at home so traveling for work is not my favorite thing. If I am going to travel for work I always tell my management that it better be worth our time. This course was absolutely worth my time. Thank you for hosting us!
     
  • Very challenging and informative. I felt comfortable and feel I learned a tremendous amount in a relatively short amount of time. Can’t wait for additional classes to be offered.
 
  • The course was as informative as it was entertaining. Steve took the time to explain each of the concepts in detail and provided a concise recap of each module. He presented ideas to implement immediately to help our team grow and be successful.
 
  • Great job, this was by far the best supplier-run training session I have ever attended!
