I recommend the program without reservation not only because of the content but because of the quality of instruction provided by Jay Pullins. I appreciate his sincerity and expertise, and I am inspired from his teaching. You can tell right off the bat that he lives and breathes leadership. He is a great role model and the right instructor to lead this training.

Having known Jay for many years, I have personally benefited greatly from his leadership and have watched him in action as he has led and trained countless other individuals. It's rare these days to find a man who: leads well, can equip others to lead, and does so with integrity in both his professional and private life. I highly recommend Jay!

Rob Fischer, Author & Leadership Coach
It has been my distinct pleasure to know Jay for these past three decades. As a friend, his loyalty has been fierce. As an example, his life has been unparalleled. I am thrilled that he's taking on this challenge of growing up more leaders, and I hope the others find their time with him to be as enriching as my time has been.
