“The Oak materials have provided us with an enormously useful package that has expanded our capacity to address the needs of leaders and emerging leaders, especially in the field of education, where there is a dearth of training opportunities in the skills and techniques of leadership and management. I can report that I have used them in re-developed format when coaching new and early stage educational leaders as well as at a 2-day symposium for the same levels of leadership. The response from these people has been enthusiastic and grateful for the insights provided.”
