  • The LR was great! I learned so much about myself and my leadership team.
  • The level of engagement during this workshop is unmatched by any other workshop I have attended.
  • The retreat unveiled some things I would like to work on, but ultimately boosted my confidence in things I do well.
  • This experience was life-altering as I move forward to the next stage of my career.
  • Simply put, this was the best professional conference I have attended. It is exactly what I need to learn in order to grow.
  • Excellent. The conference was extremely well-organized and every effort was taken to provide an optimum learning experience.
  • The LR reconnected me with what I need to do to let my team shine.
  • It was great to have such a diverse group of heads together and sharing ideas.
  • The most important part of the retreat was getting to know the other school heads ... I got a good overview of leadership, how it can be defined, and what it looks like in action.
  • Well worth taking days at this very busy time of year. It was energizing enough to get me through to graduation and provided great ideas for planning for next year.
