"I have found the programs at GISC to be an excellent blend of theory and practice, an opportunity to explore leadership issues with other senior leaders, and a coming together of like-minded people who bring an optimistic attitude to the challenges that face organizations and the world. GISC's Gestalt leadership model provides a foundation for balancing the demands that we face as leaders. I have strongly recommended the program to others."
