  • The Pyramid Approach taught in this course provides a quick understanding of the techniques of writing.
  • Within the first few minutes, I realized that I write most things backwards. (The story telling method.) That “Ah Ha” moment starts you off with an open mind to the course. It makes you want to sit back and think about how you used to write, and how you need to write in the future.

  • The instructor was fantastic and made a dry topic very interesting.
  • I am a better writer and communicator because of this course.

  • The course is extremely helpful in forcing technical professionals to 'get to the point' and use a more logical and goal-oriented approach to writing.
  • One of the best seminars I have attended in my 30 year career. 
  • The course does exactly what we learned:  It gets to the point and is Clear, Concise, and Complete.

  • The course was very well structured and the instructor’s charisma and sense of humor helped us stay focused.

  • I was impressed by how engaged I was by a course on professional writing.

  • Often these types of courses are too watered down; That’s not the case with this one. 


Communication Skills:
  • Very good course. I would recommend it to others, and would take other courses presented by RGI in the future.
  • Although this course was just 1.5 days long, it has made a big difference on my ability to communicate.
  • Good mix of instruction and practical tips that I will incorporate into my work.
  • This course will help reduce the number of communications mistakes we experience.
  • Excellent.  It was informative, a perfect pace and the instructors were great.  Well done.

  • I was surprised at how well this fit in with other courses I have taken:  "managing emotions under pressure", "effectively communicating in the workplace", "technical writing and public speaking", etc.  
  • Lori is a sharp teacher, and it was nice to see her respond to questions and situations.  She would get us back on track.
  • This was a significant course for me because it made the understanding of "Ethics" more personal.

Conflict:
  • I am more confident dealing with conflicts now and will not run from them.
  • It gave me a better understanding of “me” and how I need to adjust to deal with different people and events.
  • I now have the skill to head off a potential conflict or how to resolve one in progress.
  • All managers need to take this course.
  • I can now identify conflict earlier and address it to keep in productive.
  • This course opened me up to new ideas on how to build stronger team relationships.
  • This something I should of done years ago.
  • I was resistant at first but the instructors created a comfortable environment.
  • I never thought conflict could be a good thing.  Now I understand that.
  • I would like to commend the Instructors for keeping the course moving. This is not an easy topic to teach, and interest could have faded quickly.
