What People Say about Steven Cerri

By far the most useful and applicable to improve my effectiveness in dealing with people … Over the years I have attended several classes and read some literature on leadership and management development. The insights and techniques I received from Steven Cerri’s courses are by far the most useful and applicable to improve my effectiveness in dealing with people… The information and exercises Steve covers are revealing and intellectually challenging. Steve’s informal and engaging presentation style is well placed and spiced with humor. I go back to the class handouts and notes i have taken again and again as a refresher on the subject… If you are disenchanted with the latest best selling ‘fad de jour’ books on management theory, if you are serious about enhancing your skills in interacting with colleagues and customers, attend one of Steve Cerri’s classes… You will happily return for more.” Bert Obleski, Engineer, Isys Technologies, “Influencing Without Authority” workshop.

(This course) will change my interaction perspective and approach permanently. (I will use this information in my) daily interactions with staff, peers, and leadership team. (I ) really liked the course. It was very insightful and useful on a daily basis. Larry Straushein, Engineering Manager RF Technologies at a large, high-technology aerospace and commercial products company, “Influencing Without Authority” workshop.

As a group lead without functional management responsibility, I hope to use the course material to guide those working for me to a success oriented positive work environment. As a Work Package Manager on a major program, I hope to use the course material to achieve positive results through better communication. I hope to use the techniques to improve team communication and again, achieve positive morale within the company. The examples used during the course, and the fact that Steve continuously used the process while teaching was most valuable. The reinforcement of the course material through example was the most effective way of getting the point across. Mark Heinemann, Senior Member of Technical Staff, Mechanical Engineering, Com DEV Canada, Space Systems, “Influencing Without Authority” workshop.

Leslie Buchanan Manager, MLI Center at a large, high-technology aerospace and commercial products company.

I think (Steven) is unique. I work with a lot of managers. My father taught at business schools. I met a lot of teachers at business schools. But I have not come across the knowledge Steven has. I think it is unique. Mark Andrews, Sr. Software Engineer, WildPackets Corp.

This class changed how I perceive interactions between people.It was a fun class and I learned a lot. Renee G.

You really speak the language of the engineer AND you understand management. I now understand I have to find the right person to fit the right function. Although I don’t think of your classes every day, I’d guess that I think about something I learned from your classes at least once a week. Every week I think of something I learned that helps with my work. L.A., Manager.
