6-Session Leadership Development Program

When we have the opportunity to work with a team of senior leaders
once per month for 6 months, good things happen. Behavioral change does not happen with one workshop. We oversee the process with each team to ensure that EVERYONE is engaged. This is the only way to get the results you want to protect your investment. Managers from over 20 County Government agencies from Santa Barbara to San Diego have attended our workshops.

“One of the best leadership courses I have attended. Great job, guys!”
