This was truly worth it!! My first course that I enrolled for with Udemy and I really enjoyed your class. I learned a whole bunch and would now give up the monkey and I know it will feel GOOD.

Biljana8 October 2020

Excellent course! I was expecting it's going to be a refreshment for me, but I still learned new amazing tips! I recommend it to everyone - people just joining the workforce or experienced manager/leader. It is fun and insightful at the same time. Enjoy!

Good speaking technique - clear and loud. A lot of stories included which allows the course taker to relate to the things said and explained. It was also easy to follow without watching the screen / video.

Well detailed and entertaining. While I'm not in a leadership role, I did find valuable lessons for situations where I do need to lead/coordinate I will use.

This is good for me. Some basics but also some very useful specifics. Using a story narrative to teach works very well for me as I can imagine and relate.

Johnny27 February 2020

I have taken a few of your courses and all have been very informative and have helped me greatly. I will be taking more.

Eslam27 February 2020

it was amazing and knowledgable // but it was too fast for someone who isn't a native English speaker to follow each word

Pavlos27 February 2020

Excellent management course, even for a beginner in the field. I will definitely consult it again in the future as a management manual !

Jessica26 February 2020

I have rarely had the opportunity to be a manager. However, I have had some really bad managers. And I have had some really good ones. This course helped me to understand a lot about leadership and management. It helped me to reflect on see how management decisions have affected me in the past and understand what my manger was doing better.

Nicko26 February 2020

Love the course. Definitely lots of practical leadership nuggets for everyone who aspire to be a leader. A good one. :)

Zozuko26 February 2020

In this course i learned many things i didn't know about leadership. This you should do and things you should not do when you are a leadership. I also learned how to speak to many people in a positive way.

William25 February 2020

As always, Chris humanizes any otherwise verbose matter into key takeaways with immediate returns. I recommend this course if your are looking to contextualize your leadership/ management style to your circle's needs. The Management Potato is brilliant!

Hilda25 February 2020

Super accessible and interesting stuff. Nothing really suprisingly (at least for me) but very good. Everyone should see this one once in a while. Chris is very nice to listen to and his humor makes is more easy to listnen to. With very relatable examples you can easily imagine situations. Thanks Chris!
