Leadership Academy Overview
You have a vision, now you need the skills to execute
The final test of leadership is results. A leader needs to execute a strategic vision using political and managerial competence: the ability to mobilize, negotiate, engage, and coach. These skills can be acquired, and are independent of charisma and personality.
The Cornell - BLG Leadership Academy is a fully integrated, cumulative program that trains individuals in the skills of pragmatic leadership. The program is based on over thirty years of sound academic research and real-world application, bridging the gap between academia and the world of practice.
The BLG Academy will provide you with the pragmatic skills to become a better leader.

"Sam’s lectures are entertaining, full of dramatic turns, well paced and leave you with the feeling that you learned something profound in spite of yourself. They also leave you wondering where the time went and wishing the session wasn't over"
