I signed up for the [High Impact Manager] course because I feel like managing staff in the last 5 years has changed as the workforce changes. I wanted to learn how to manage the young staff and have them be productive as possible.


If I met someone on the fence about taking this course, I would tell them “Do it!” The course homework is time consuming but the takeaways and personal growth is totally worth it.


I am so glad I took the course. I learned everything and more than I thought I would. I feel like I learned so much about myself through the process and built some great relationships with amazing people. I have some goals that I hope to tackle in the near future for myself and the team I work with, making us a well-oiled machine.
