Here’s what they said about Leadership DELI and its impact on their organization:

“It was great.  We took so many things back to our org and will be implementing over time.  Most useful was probably making the connection between value prop/business model/vision/plan.”

“That we are actually on track and already doing a majority of the lessons outlined.  Learn how to maximize our existing work and processses.”

“Appreciated these courses very much!  Like the courses on Tuesdays so we had Monday to get caught up on the weekend and set up success for our class the next day.  Great trainers and food!  Thank you so very much for making this a possibility and all of your hard work.”

“The session on training was life changing for our organization.  I am much better at explaning things now.”

“That persistence is key.  And being a leader in whatever areas you are working, matters to the overall effort.  It takes the whole team and doesn’t fall to one person or role.”
