5.0 out of 5 stars Great Turn-Key Package for Trainers
I just bought the Manager Skills Training program--very impressive work. Background: I have done six two-day Presentation Skills Training sessions so far; three of them for the same company! Thanks to Christee Atwood and ASTD, this has become my most popular training session (and I recommend that book too!). I anticipate the same success from this excellent work. It is...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly organized and light on substance.
Poorly organized information: you have to flip from the text to the tools to the activities - back and forth - to make any sense out of it. And, on top of that, it is very light on substance - basically reheated leadership pablum from back in the 80's and 90's. Very disappointing for ASTD to put their name on something like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Turn-Key Package for Trainers, July 8, 2008
This review is from: Manager Skills Training: Trainer's Workshop (Astd Trainer's Workshop Series) (Paperback)
I just bought the Manager Skills Training program--very impressive work. Background: I have done six two-day Presentation Skills Training sessions so far; three of them for the same company! Thanks to Christee Atwood and ASTD, this has become my most popular training session (and I recommend that book too!). I anticipate the same success from this excellent work. It is of the same quality and as easy to use as the Presentation Skills Training was. It no doubt will become a very popular offering from my workshop menu. If you need to train the next level of employees toward management, this is the tool for you too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing exciting, August 24, 2009
This review is from: Manager Skills Training: Trainer's Workshop (Astd Trainer's Workshop Series) (Paperback)
Manager Skills Training book is again a very old fashioned approach to adult training. I was hoping to find tools, exercises and tests that would guide me in preparing such trainings for my clients. I was disappointed. Nothing new and the concepts are pretty much what you could find in cheaper publications.
