Leadership training for Salt Lake City managers and executives

Designed for leaders at all levels, the Salt Lake City Leadership Excellence Course establishes each participant's Leadership Profile -- identifying personal leadership style and philosophy, and honing the ability to communicate them to team members. Three months of coaching sessions are included in the course fee so attendees continue to receive practical advice and reinforcement of key learnings.

Drawing on leadership training instilled at America's service academies

Academy Leadership uses a unique leadership development process based on principles used by West Point, the Naval Academy, and the U. S. Air Force Academy for instilling leadership, strategy and discipline. These strategies underpin today's successful corporate leadership philosophies to create leadership training programs guaranteed to give measureable results.

Course attendee Mike Hobson speaks frankly about his experience

Course participant Mike Hobson, Project Manager with NextGear Capital, explained, "I've taken several others, but Academy Leadership's course was by far the most valuable – and I've become a more effective team leader because of it. During the course I developed my own leadership philosophy, defined my team goals, and learned how to communicate that to my team. I found the follow up sessions after the course with instructor Steve Alltop were really invaluable, and something I'd never experienced in any other course.  I was able to talk through and apply what I'd learned in day-to-day work situations or challenges, and it has really helped continue the leadership style I've developed."

Course graduates qualify for continuing education credits

The Leadership Excellence course qualifies attendees for 36 PDUs from the Project Management Institute, 21 recertification credits from the Human Resources Certification Institute, and 36 CPE credits from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

Seats limited

Only 30 seats are available. The cost is $2,950 per person, with a special $300 per person discount available for groups of 3 or more. More information and registration is available at http://www.academy-leaders.com/salt-lake.
