Testimonials

Beth Flynn came out to the Newark campus to do a Civility workshop. It was very helpful and because of that I learned about Leadership Moments and signed up for them. I usually find something useful in each segment....

Terri Jackson, OSU Chemistry Lab Supervisor

 I just want to let you know that Leadership Moments are really helpful and motivating. They are very useful for me. I have always been waiting for these emails.

Leadership Moment Subscriber

I have been reviewing Leadership Moments since 2011 and they are good reminders of very basic leadership philosophies that we sometimes forget in our busy day. So they have been great at keeping me grounded and focused...

Keiva Wyatt, Human Resource Director

I have been through similar sessions...and Jeff (Dr. King) was head and shoulders above any instructor I have had in the past.  Kudos!

Workshop Participant

Honestly I thought this MBTI staff development wouldn't really have an effect on the things I do but I was wrong.  Jeff King is awesome and would greatly enjoy him returning work.
