“In the past, I have generally just winged being a leader.
I was not always effective. If I had taken this course prior to being a leader,
I know I would have been a more effective and adaptable leader."
“The Communication Leadership Academy Course was great! I
enjoyed learning about the different types of leadership, how they applied to
me in my personal and professional life, and what I can do to be a better
leader and communicator.”
