“CCL gives participants great tools that they can use when they get back to their everyday job and provide the follow-up that is so lacking in other programs. There is an overall genuineness from the CCL instructors that other programs do not have and the instructors have credentials and life experience to back it. I left with tools, instruction on how to use them, and more importantly, resources that allow me to use them correctly. I highly recommend this course to anyone who has any feelings of moving into leadership or is in leadership.”
