As I go back to my command with feedback, I will “highly” encourage them to hold this seminar sacred as a “top tier” leadership development program for our “mover/shaker” Colonels and high-performing civilians. I got a “lot” of great perspective from this session that will benefit me as I progress in my career. I would enjoy coming back in three years to see how perspectives may change.Air Force Attendee, May 2014
This is a fantastic opportunity. I read a lot, but this showed me many areas where my historical knowledge is lacking and I am motivated to dig in!M.B., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar May 2015
