Living As A Leader has exceeded my expectations. The training sessions are very interactive, using numerous training techniques that my managers can relate and respond to. The bonus part of the program is the small group coaching sessions. This is where my managers can work through and get advice on their real-life leadership issues.

The Living As A Leader System offered our business leaders a common language to enable them to achieve company goals as we were experiencing significant growth through acquisition. As a result, relationships between the leaders improved as did the overall culture. By strengthening the leadership team, our company effectively brought the new locations into our culture in half the time of previous acquisitions, with less than five percent employee turnover.

Wonderful series of sessions - very workplace situation related and each month is different. I like that it's interactive - people sharing experiences that are similar to mine. "We are all in the same boat." I liked the Living As A Leader program so much that I recommended it for all of our management staff at our Pleasant Prairie location. Currently, we have over thirty leaders from various levels within the organization participating in a new onsite Series including myself for a second time! I also appreciate that the materials being covered are being refreshed and kept current with our ever-changing environment.

Living As A Leader is proving to be a great asset to me and my department. It's giving me the "momentum" to take my Focus Factory to a new level. The tools and personal expertise my coach and this development Series has given me is by far more than I had originally expected. Communication of subjects is excellent and very professional, and your knowledge of Series' subjects and how they become part of and are implemented into our daily situations is outstanding. One last FYI - you all do a great job in bringing humor and enjoyment to these training sessions.

Living as a Leader was an excellent opportunity to learn new methods of coaching for growth and improvement, as well as refreshing some already gained knowledge as a manager. Coaching sessions that covered each lesson were extremely beneficial to relating all content covered to how it can be applied successfully to our organization. It’s not only a great class for individuals new to leadership, it is also beneficial to those who have been doing it for years..

Completing the Living as a Leader course has made me a more self-aware and thoughtful leader. The workshops provided content that aided in the improvement of my leadership and coaching skills. However, the most beneficial aspect of this program for me was the one-on-one coaching provided by my coach. She guided me through, and helped me to apply, the coursework to real-life work situations. I found her insights and experience to be thoughtful and very helpful as I strive to further my development as a leader. While this development will remain an ongoing process, I feel that this course has set me on the path to continue to grow as a leader in a way that is positive, supportive and intentional.

Taking the Living as a Leader course has very positively impacted my organization. My coach has been WONDERFUL! I've taken multiple leadership classes and read numerous books on the topic, and this class stood out among all of them. The modules are easy to navigate and give you a lot of actionable advice. Meeting with my coach once a month has been so helpful to talk through actual problems my business was going through. I would recommend this class to anyone!Taking the Living as a Leader course has very positively impacted my organization. My coach has been WONDERFUL!
