"If you are looking for a leadership program that you can actually apply to your daily life then this is it! In a short span of time I have felt the impact of this course in how I communicate, deal with conflict, influence others, and develop a leadership mindset. Highly recommend!"
Director, Sales Training
"I don't technically have a leadership position in my line of work but I encourage people who don't to take this course if that need to gain confidence in themselves. This course has helped immensely in being confident in how I speak and taking initiative in things that I believe in."
User Experience Designer
"Speaking as a Leader has shown me that every communication is an opportunity to inspire and motivate others, in other words, lead every time you speak. The leading can be in a hallway conversation, through email, or face-to-face, the opportunities are there and I learned that I need to take those opportunities to speak as a leader."
