Participant Testimonial:

"The classes were interesting, well presented, and engaging. The material was relevant and useful for those of us who are relatively new in leadership positions. The presenting faculty were knowledgeable and the presentations were professional.  As much of the challenges of leadership have to do with personal interaction, there was useful material regarding communication and team building. Additionally the subject of organizational change was most interesting and potentially useful."
