Dear Friend,

As we all prepare for the holidays (and the parties that go with them!), many of us are also planning our budgets for 2013. We wanted to remind you of some of our Corporate Training opportunities for 2013.

Are you interested in developing your leadership strengths? Do you want your employees to enhance their communication skills or their ability to handle change? Invest in yourself and your organization by registering for a leadership development program today!

Here are some testimonials from a few of our program alumni:

"Attending the course helped me gain a deeper insight and awareness, and that helped my career immensely." -- Rakesh Ahuja, Vice President, Center based Operations, IBM

"Leadership is not so much about what I want, but leadership is more about how I can contribute to the success of the team and the success of the organization, and that was where I was able to grow the most." - Franklin Fong, Senior Project Leader, Aerospace Corporation

"LEAP quite simply changed my life... My life has been greatly enriched by the self-knowledge and skill development provided by the LEAP experience." Margaret Ashida, Director, Empire State STEM Learning Network

"Nothing I had gone through prior to the LEAP (program) even addressed the whole cultural aspect. And what I found during (the program) and then certainly afterwards when I had time to think about it and reflect upon it, is that this was the missing piece in a lot of the other leadership courses I had taken." -- Thelma Kailiwai, Director on Staff, Engineering Strategic Development, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems
