Program Outcomes

As part of the learning and development team for a global furniture manufacturer, I was looking for a program for our new managers to teach them basic management skills such as coaching and influencing team members. A colleague recommended Senga and I could not be more pleased with the result. We needed something that could be offered in a virtual classroom since our leaders are hired in so many different locations. Wayne and his team really listened to our vision for the program and have created an interactive, engaging program for our new leaders, which is receiving excellent feedback. Wayne and his team were extremely easy to work with. Their passion for creating a great learning experience was very evident throughout the process. I found them to not only be good consultants and course designers, but also great facilitators as well. I would recommend the Senga team to anyone and could certainly see working with them on other projects in the future.
