      "I can just go on and on (about The High-Impact Leadership Program), but it was just really eye-opening in terms of taking a look at who I am, who I really am, looking at the mistakes that I made over the last year as a leader and the kind of things, even little things, I can do to make a difference in how I lead the individuals that are depending on me. It's been very valuable for me."

      Bernadette Montgomery, Executive Director, Miami Dade County Public Schools

      "The quality of the program exceeded my expectations. I would definitely call this a world class program and I would say that it rivals some of the ivy-league programs that are out there. I am going to talk to my team a lot about how we can build this program into our high potential leadership retention and development. For me this is? I hope to make this a big part of what we do in terms of developing future leaders at Burger King."

      Jenn Crenshaw, Vice President, Human Resources, Burger King Corporation

      "I was very impressed with the quality of instruction- I felt that all of the presentations were tight, the instructors were prepared and what really impressed me was the research that backs up some of the things that we talk about- personality, career derailers- things like that. The research is solid and I hadn't been exposed to that type of "metric" if you will, in any of the previous thirty years of leadership development that I've done."

      Colonel Scott Malcom, Director of Public Affairs, United States Southern Command
