The goal of each program is to improve job performance and enhance the participant’s immediate potential and professional network.

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.

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.
