Lead with Emotional Intelligence

Leaders develop their self-awareness and hone their behaviors informed by attuned emotional intelligence.


Application Based

Supported by Mentors

Leaders are personally assigned an experienced SLG Certified Mentor to assist them in applying the curriculum in real time.


Empowered by Accountability
