Ruben recently delivered his “Essential Leadership –“Propelling Your Organization Forward In Tough Economic Times” –—to my CEO and Key groups. This highly interactive program was very informative, immediately useful, and entertaining. My CEO group received the program first, and were so impressed that they sent many of their key executives—non-members of my Key group– to the other presentation. This program, and Ruben’s ability to engage and challenge the audience, would be very good for a MGD.
