Leadership Boot Camp & Performance Coaching

Graduate Reviews

Leadership Boot Camp

"I found Academy Leadership helps leaders really think about what they believe in. It also makes your expectations crystal clear to subordinates. People want leaders they can predict. They want to know, up front, what's valued and what's not. That's what the personal leadership philosophy does for you."
Robert McDonald, CEO, Procter & Gamble
"Leadership Boot Camp is a fantastic opportunity to take a step back from daily challenges and spend some time getting to know yourself better. It provides you with information and tools to be a better leader. If you put a lot of energy into it, you will get invaluable results out of it."
