Great format, presentation of concepts, and plenty of group discussion. The leadership seminar provides real techniques and tools that can be applied to daily challenges.

-Chris Rahl, Gordon Feinblatt LLC

I appreciated the immediate and continued team interaction. The course presented subjects and case studies that I recommend for self-awareness and leadership training.

-Stephen Shultz, Brown Advisory

The strategic planning seminar was thoughtfully crafted and executed exploration into the topic at hand. The instructor used a creative approach and extensive experience to deliver on the goals of the class.

-Michael Bamonti, Loyola University Maryland

The seminar on strategic planning was very informative. The instructor offered a concise look into types of strategies and supporting matrices which can be used to plan for competitive advantage in resource planning, product development, and more importantly, life.

-Belinda Edwards, The MITRE Corporation

After attending the seminar I fell more self-aware and prepared in dealing with business decisions. Prior to this session I would say I did not consciously consider strategy on a daily basis and will now make it part of my daily practice.

-Eric Fischer, RSM US LLP

I appreciate that the seminar really encouraged me to think about myself - how I make decisions, what my leadership style is, and what my own core values are. I think being more self-aware will make me a better leader.

-Todd Studney, Director of Finance, Healthcare for the Homeless

The seminar took the fundamentals of leadership and packaged it into a thoughtful tool that can be used in a practical manner in the workplace.

-Minh Nguyen, HRMS, Manager, Archdiocese of Baltimore
