    Job Search and Application Skills Training Course Reviews:

    I found it very refreshing not to do another personality type course on leadership, but more about applying the leadership style to the staff member's developmental stage. Great delivery, lots of hands on and lots of involving staff. I got my staff to do stuff they don't like doing which was really good!
