  1. Thank you for this course. I appreciate the very clear and detailed presentation. I learned so many lessons in this course. One of these is that the leadership skills that you need to have to be an effective leader in one entity or in one company. I also learned the different styles of leadership. All the leadership skills that I learned today will be surely used by me not only today but also in the future. This is a big help for me.

  2. I have learned so much from this webinar. And one of the things I’ve learned is that members of a team working together will always have the opportunity to learn from one other’s accomplishments and failures. They’ll take an organized approach to learning new topics. The organization will not depart from its long-term or short-term goals since assignments will be allotted to those who can meet the specified goals. Collaborating in the workplace entails bringing diverse talents together to create a pool of diverse skills and information. Teams will have superior problem-solving ways when more skilled and experienced people are brought together. Working with people from various backgrounds in a team will provide you with additional opportunities to understand their uniqueness. They will undoubtedly compliment each other in many areas, and you can put them to work for your company. Even if the outcome falls short of your expectations, you will still reap the benefits of forming a partnership that allows you to accomplish a lot. Successful businesses always encourage their employees to work together. Members of a single department’s team collaborate not just within their department, but also across the organization’s departments. Because everyone in a company contributes to certain goals, it creates a great feedback loop that may be used for initiatives. Everyone on the team will be allowed to voice their opinions in order to better meet the company’s objectives. Other methods of bringing teams together cannot compete with the power of social media. ProofHub is one of many cloud-based collaboration solutions that may bring teams together. Coworkers are finding it simpler to communicate, cooperate, and stay in sync thanks to online tools. When working on a project as a group, each team member should contribute equally. From time to time, each team member should supply improved feedback, create unique ideas, and develop answers to various project challenges. All of this is made much easier by effective team collaboration. It also eliminates any potential roadblocks to attaining the project’s end goal. It takes longer to start and finish when an uninformed group of people gets together to work on the same goal. When a well-coordinated and collaborative group of people works together, however, the entire scenario changes. The entire process accelerates, and the ultimate result exceeds everyone’s expectations for the team.

  3. I’ve learned a lot in this webinar. It helped me gain more knowledge about leadership. Everyone should know that as a leader you are not alone in your organization, you have your team on your side.

  4. This is a very informative webinar. It enlightens me on the importance of leadership in the corporate world. The knowledge I’ve learned from here will surely be something I’ll take note of.

  5. I experienced being a leader and a team member. I totally agree that more than the skills and talents, character is far important in order to achieve the objectives of the team. People can be trained but a bad attitude cannot be easily changed. Thank you for this, Mr. Dyer and Ask Lex PH!

  6. As an Industrial Engineer, the knowledge I gained in training was important. Every information on Collaborating with Employees to Improve Culture and Processes is well illustrated and understood. Thank you very much, po. Thank you, Ask Lex, for the free certification. God Bless Ask Lex Academy!!!

  7. A very informative course it is. I took it because I will be assigned in a department where they focus on improvement (kaizen), and turned out, it is really helpful, especially on collaborating with colleagues in reaching the organization’s goal.

  8. I’ve learned so much from this online course but what struck me the most is when he said that enthusiastic productivity can go along way. As a leader, it is vital to realize that we are not alone in a team and to achieve our vision and mission, we should work and share ideals together.

  9. This is a very informative webinar. It’s true that we should not inject and permeate fear in workplaces for everyone in the organization is affected, even the success of the organization itself. Instead of being a dictator/authoritarian (boss), we should transition to being collaborative (leader). I have experienced this same problem in all the jobs I had before, and so if I become an administrator in the future I know how will I drive a healthy, positive, and enthusiastic team environment in my organization. Thank you so much!

  10. As an Industrial Engineering Student this is very informative and Helpful. On how important leadership and how it help in improving Processes. Thankyou Ask Lex Ph

  11. As a Industrial Engineering student, I feel very delighted to be part of this free online e-learning program. It motivates me more to pursue my dreams because I’ve learned that the distance between my vision and my dream is my action. The video and Mr. John made me realize that that by being a good leader is by a good communication skills not just the sustained improvements and Dr. Deming’s 14 points. Because the pathway to excellence is by applying the four (4) leadership styles with a very good communication skills and be a Good Leader and not just and excellent “Boss”. I would like to say thank you to ASK LEX PH ACADEMY and to sir John Dyer. Before I leave, if there is anyone reading this I would like to leave a parting quotes before I post this comment. I saw this in the Aquaman movie where it made me realize this applies to many companies out there, the quote says: “Well, what could be greater than a king?. A hero. A king fights for his nation. A hero fights for everyone.” This is very suitable between the difference of a Boss and a Leader.

  12. Its like a re-echoing those terms I have encountered in my previous yellow six sigma course. But the new thing Ive experience is the way he share his knowledge and how he execute it to his own company. It motivates me that to be able to improve theres no fear involve. Also I think achieving goals with the team, is one of the greatest achievement I want to feel. Thank you for nurturing our knowledge.
