One of the things that has been a resounding AHA! moment is that it’s created this sense of awareness, of self-awareness, for all of us that I know is one of the goals of the entire program.
The ability to pick and choose what’s right for your company was very good because I don’t like canned solutions.
Of course, we had our doubts, but they proved us wrong. 360 delivers every year for the last three years. We have conducted thousands of days of training. They believe in the program, they care about the participants, they go the extra mile. Also the trainings are taught in Spanish.
Many of our retailers have benefitted from the marketing processes they implemented.
A lot of times companies want to take one event, or one series of meetings and boom, it’s going to fix everything but it’s more of a process. You have to make it part of a program. I’m a CFO so I could cut this from our budget but you really have to make it part of a long term program.
Our participants, they love it. They truly enjoy their workshops and feel they’re beneficial to any body.
I was stunned at the quality of the materials. The stuff was leading edge, very well-produced and very high caliber.
They were truly the first people to really “get” what we were talking about. In that very first interview, we were able to start working toward what we actually might do and how it might work.
The assessments have been extremely beneficial to me. Because in order to manage people to the point they can be the most successful, you have to understand that person. It’s not about understanding that person between 8 and 5, it’s about understanding who that person is, what moves them, what motivates them to the greatest level of success.
“Our interview process, we managed to change it based off things they showed us. The improvements have been good. We’re seeing it with the new employees coming in, we’re building a better team, we’re interacting with them more.”
