Testimonial for Influencer Course:

Mike, you do a great job of trying to engage us in this new world. I know how difficult it is to go from a classroom setting to a virtual setting.  Getting participants to join in the learning is difficult and I learned a lot from listening to you. You do a good job of bringing relatable stories for to fit the material; which assists us in grasping the purpose and transfer learning. It will also help us be able to grab that knowledge later from that file cabinet to set up our own stories. As a fellow trainer, I felt extremely overwhelmed with the concept of training online but watching you has reduced my anxiety a lot. Thank you for letting us join.  Your timing is well done and the once a week is great because it sets up concepts in this training about ensuring we have influence. Great job! – Michelle Qualls Orange County Probation

“I found the MBTI Workshop super interesting. It makes you aware of how people can work differently based on their personalities. The team can vary in strengths and this workshop helped us to identify how to approach, react or gain perspective of one another.”—Ana M., Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder

“I found taking the MBTI and doing the workshop afterwards really beneficial in understanding how I can work better together with my colleagues.  We all have different work styles, thought processes, and ways we approach our work and projects. It was nice to see how we all can benefit and learn from one another even though our styles are different.  I feel like it helped us to recognize some of our strengths and weaknesses and how working with those with different attributes can help us all to improve in our overall performance.”—Sherry A., Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder

“I appreciated the learning experience and the insight into how I process information and relate to others. It also provided valuable context on how others might observe things and the thought process behind certain decisions. Although there were some technical difficulties during the workshop, I liked having the material regarding my personality type available for my own review.”—Danny M., Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder

Testimonial for Internship Program:

My internship helped me better understand how County processes and procedures work, and it allowed me opportunities to learn various functions in HR.
