Found this class to be super helpful. I think it captures a lot of elements of management we think we all know but having it broken down and repeated is helpful. I will for sure be watching the again. The content was structured well enough that I could listen to this on 2x speed. Loved the recaps at the end of each video. Can't wait to apply things I learned!
