“Each module has proved invaluable for giving me the tools and business strategies necessary in navigating through a very complex file I was called to resolve. ‘Problem Solving in Complex Environments’, has been particularly instrumental  in bringing practical solutions to conflicts and challenges within various  teams. ‘The Personal Leadership Development’ course has served to bring self-awareness regarding my particular style of leadership. This has all helped in giving me a confident calm assurance as I brief all levels of the executive chain. The way I handle conflict and pressure is very different now.”

— Terry Smith,  Program Manager CAE

“MBCPL has enabled me (an engineer) to be more comfortable in the “grey zone” (where most projects lie) I wish I had these tools years ago! I use them every day in my work environment”.
