What did you like the most?

Transforming power.

The open forum and interactive training.

Active Listening.

Training format, class size and participation.

All the interfacing, verbal interactions and the stimulating exercises for the left and right side of the brain. Additionally, the relaxing form of exercise.

I especially like the quickness this group came together and trusted each other.

It helps show that you have to rely on others sometimes. When you work TOGETHER, good things will happen.

The communication that opened-up and the flow between the class members was surprising. I felt very comfortable after the first half-hour.

Light & Livelies, togetherness of group and team building.

The way the group evolved into a unit thinking and working together.

The trust you build quickly without realizing that you have lowered your “fences”.

The group presentation and participation.

I liked all areas of training.

I felt very comfortable.

Adjective names allowed you to reach everyone quickly.

What did you like the least?

Need more time to practice.

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like.

I enjoyed and liked all!

Time spent in problem solving.

Re-entries; felt obligated to say something so in order not to repeat said things that were not of as great a value.

The first two minutes were the only unprofitable moments, as we were uptight.

The course was too short.

The role playing [only because I am somewhat shy].

Talking about myself.

Breaks

It was not long enough.

Problem solving.

In what areas would you like to see more time spent?

It was a shame it had to end at all.

Need to have a refresher planned in six months.

Use of listening tools, thinking positive and role playing.

The time spent on each topic seemed appropriate to me.

The class could be a little longer and more time spent on personal maintenance through this class.

Power training.

Transforming power.

Problem solving.

Team building.

Everything was well planned.

Transforming power; more “how-to’s.”

Open discussion on problem solving.

The class could be a little longer and more time spent on personal maintenance through this class.

Problem solving and evaluations.

What would you like included that was not?

Nothing I can think of.

Management.

More time!

Team concept very good.

Time management and communication skills.

I would also like to have a refresher course or #2, #3 workshop.

More definite answers to questions pertaining to DOC problems and not just individual problems.

Bring in supervisors at this time to observe the teamwork they don’t practice.

More on personal conflict resolution and also resolution of conflict when time is a factor; “instant conflict resolution.”

Continental breakfast, free coffee.

What impact has/will this training have on you?

I hope to be able to improve my communications effectively with my co-workers.

Great impact, at home and at work. I can now communicate better with my wife. I saw a big difference after the first day.

A lot of ideas which I have believed and they were brought out in a less stressful mode and style.

I have a changed attitude in what people can do when they work together.

It will help my ability to communicate and listen.

I especially like the quickness this group came together and trusted each other.

That there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel and that if I try, I can make a change.

I hope I will remember when and how to use this in the future.

It already has by my attitude changing. Whenever conflicts arise, they are different by the fact that my attitude has changed.

A lot, I will view and value other people, inmates and their ideas with this information.

Had a profound impact on me.

I will try and use some of this training.

Only time will tell, but I hope a good impact on conflict resolution.

I hope to take back and use the listening and problem solving techniques that I learned.

It opened my mind to solve and identify conflict and problems; gave me ideas to use in problem solving.

At this time, the impact will benefit me for personal and family growth.

Additional Comments

If possible, let existing work groups and units take the training together.

A shame the department cannot function at a fraction of the level we learned to reach.

Absolutely the best training class I’ve ever attended through DOC.

Judge the reaction/progress to see if more is accomplished by being strangers or close co-workers. [Will you actual supervisor’s presence retard your participation and learning?]

This course should be mandatory for all DOC personnel.

Thank you all who made it possible for this training.

I will come back with more understanding and growth. Thanks again !!

The communication that opened-up and the flow between the class members was surprising. I felt very comfortable after the first half-hour.

Less time, closer to 1 1/2 days.

This class has helped to show a definite direction for me. Thanks a lot!

It’s not only been informative, but lots of fun.

Need to take it a further step if possible.

Thanks for a very good class. The class was very good and the format made it easy to understand.

Excellent – more people should have the opportunity to experience this class.

Great course. Keep up the good work. Need more professionals like you.
