Expectations and learning outcomes: Stress Management training for Managers feedback comments
What will you do differently as a result of this workshop? In the words of the delegates …
As budget and time constraints are major considerations for our customers, we understand the requirement of meeting the expectations of delegates in our training courses. Whether our customers are considering an in-house training course or attending a public course, we understand that the benefits of the training to the business need to be justified.
With this in mind, we thought it would be useful for you to see quotes from delegates who have attended our courses, which identify their reasons for attending the training and then what they plan to do differently as a result of learning new skills. This feedback was gathered from online evaluations, allowing the delegates time to consider the effectiveness of the training.
