Review by Louise Daker, MBS

"Hello Paul, I participated in one of your team leader training courses in June of this year that was undertaken by one of your consultants. I wanted to let you know that since the course, I have been working towards NVQ level 3 in Business Administration and have done further tests with the self diagnostic tool as part of my skills project. I rolled out Asters diagnostic tool to my team and they completed the questionnaires as an assessment on me as their team leader rather than an assessment of themsleves. My findings supported the diagnostic tool , as they were the same as my own assessment. This confirms to me that the managerial style grid and questionnaire are an accurate means of determining a person's management style. I really enjoyed the project and i have Aster Training to thank for that."
