"I didn't want to attend this training because I figured it would be a boring day of power point slides and useless lectures. Boy was I wrong! The three days went by quickly and I found myself totally engaged the whole time. I wanted more. I recommend this training whole-heartedly for anyone interested in being a top-notch supervisor or manager." Tomas - La-Z-Boy

We asked each trainee that has attended our leadership trainings over the past 24 months if they felt the time spent in this training was worth while and if they would recommend the training to others. 100% said "Yes".
