I consciously started inculcating the positive values of the [Science of People Master Classes] in my communication with my team. Previously, I used to get agitated on seeing poor performances by my team and immediately question the efforts put in by the contributors. My objective was to bring the best in them and make them better at their work, but instead, my style was probably having an opposite effect. I took almost every lesson from this class and started applying them to my mails, teleconferences, and one-on-one conversations. I was surprised to find an almost instant positive reaction from my team members. My biggest takeaway from the class was to introduce positivity in every day life, empathize with different perspectives, and articulate my viewpoint in a collaborative manner.

I got valuable learnings from this Master Class like every change is possible if you have the right strategy and tools for it, and that taking small steps can lead to a big change. The stories about great leaders in the modules made me feel confident that this is the right way to go. I loved the great leader quotations – so much that I asked for a Churchill biography book for Christmas, and I’m half way through it! Additionaly I really liked the fact that I could watch the videos and work through the modules at my own pace without any stress, in my safe environment. It was also very helpful to read opinions of other course members about different topics, and it was surprising and comforting to see how many people think the same way I do.

The materials were thoughtfully selected, focused and relevant for the objective of the class.The various techniques and tips that were shared in class were explained in a simple manner, which was easy to follow and very impactful. I'm excited to put the learnings into practice immediately. This class was an investment in which time and money were well spent, and I highly recommend this class for anyone interested in honing their feedback, coaching and leadership skills.

I have benefited significantly from the training this Master Class has given me on how to coach. I have recently applied these coaching principles to an individual on my team, and I have noticed a positive change in behavior as a result of my coaching. I have found that she has far more determination to do well than I initially realized. She has been more centered and engaged once I have started coaching her, and the quality of her output has improved substantially.
