    I was enchanted by following the course of Essential Skills of Assistant Manager. The content of the course expanded my expectations. First of all, the course was very well organized and was pleasant to follow. I found topics interesting and close to real life cases. Secondly, it gave me an overview of the most important aspects of the Assistant Manager position, as well as enlarged my professional vocabulary. I advise this course to any person interested in Team Management and Communication.

    I loved the real life role-playing cases because I wasn’t stressed at all! Who likes to be assessed? I personally dislike it and find it very stressful. Participating in these real case studies was though a very pleasant activity for me given that I had the chance to participate twice. The big question that helps solving any conflict is really revealing and effective in solving conflicts much easier.
    Calvin Burke
    It’s really impressive how you’ve succeeded in translating important insider secrets into common language easily to understand by everyone. I am aware that in a short while I achieved valuable knowledge that otherwise I could achieve in years of work and this will help me rise faster in my career. Most of us are visual persons, including me :), so getting practical information, tips and techniques through visual infographics, helped me remember them much easier.
    Jantina Van Wegberg
    Thanks to the clarifying feedback that goes with the right solution at each practical activity, I internalized much easier the information I got from this course. I found very useful the part with how to set smart goals in order to really achieve them. I applied what I found in this management course and now when I set a goal I am 100% sure that I can achieve it. A Big thank you, BigMainStreet! I will recommend this online course also to my work colleagues.
