What educators are saying.
”It’s been my experience, after working one-on-one with over 500 CEO/Founders in the past few years, that the number of great leaders, those individuals who have proven success to lead and guide a large number of people in an impossible endeavor, are easily identified on one hand. At the end of the day it’s all about leadership, and Dr. Steve Constantino, along with my hero, John Wooden, are the BDP. Pull in two or three fingers on that hand and you’ll find the Outliers who not only can lead, but can teach others HOW to lead. Steve, and John, are the fingers still standing.Brent SappCEO, Navigator Inc.
