The Leadership Academy is designed for people who want to build upon their leadership skills to successfully inspire others to take positive, decisive courses of action.
Line Employees, Support & Professional Staff, Shift Leads and Supervisors from Federal, State, County and Municipal organizations – as well as from business, not-for-profits and civic organizations – throughout the United States have participated in our leadership training and consistently report that the experience “exceeded expectations.”
