Hear from Past Participants

​National Director, Federal Accounts, UCB

​“Since my time at Stanford, I have had three promotions. The tools provided helped build strong relationships with my colleagues and company leaders. At Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, leadership created a position specifically for me. This led to an opportunity with UCB Pharmaceuticals, where I directed a national sales force. I now serve as vice president of government accounts for Walgreens.”

​Former VP and Corporate Controller, Terra Industries

​“I learned so much about how I can develop my emotional skills to further develop my leadership skills. The concepts are simple, but extremely powerful. The weeklong program was amazing and very revealing to me on a personal and professional level. I will continue to use these skills for the rest of my life.”

President and CEO, ThedaCare

“The Interpersonal Dynamics course has been an eye-opening experience. It took me out of my comfort zone and helped me connect with the leader I aspire to be. I truly believe that this experience was essential to get me to where I am, president and CEO of ThedaCare.”
