Leadership Training Overview.

The Leadership Essentials training is an experiential and interactive 21-hour program designed to help build a solid foundation to increase communication and understanding between leaders and their teams. Each course is designed to be innovative and fresh, providing real solutions to real workplace situations without the boring data that we have all heard before.

The premise of this certificate is simple: In theory everything works. But it’s the implementation and follow through that actually matters. You can google many ways to be a better leader, but the question is… how do you actually do it and what are tried and true methods that actually work?
