is an act of the heart as much as it is an application of
the mind. Great leaders, in my opinion, inspire as much through
their spirit as through their vision. I attended Living Leadership
because it provided me the opportunity to leave behind the
day-to-day demands of running a company to explore the deeper
and more subtle aspects of leadership: heart, spirit and trust.
The program is an inspiring mix of learning, introspection,
dialogue and group dynamics. I recommend Living Leadership
to anyone interested in exploring their relationship with
this powerful but less-well understood side of being human.
It has helped me be a better leader both in my company and
in my personal life.”
Jim Roche, President & CEO, Tundra Semiconductor Corporation,

It has been four months since I returned from Living Leadership.
I know how incredible I felt after leaving the program, but
I was curious to see how I would operate in the real world.
Now four months later, my life is better and more enriched
than I could ever have anticipate. My success in business
since returning has been greater than any other period in
my life in business. My personal relationships are deeper,
my relationship with my wife and stepchildren is strengthened…I’m
personally speaking to all my friends and business colleagues
about all the programs that Constellation Learning offers.
I truly believe in the work that Constellation Learning does,
and I will continue to support your programs as long as I’m
breathing on this earth.”

my sense of personal power – a feeling I haven’t

I need to do is trust and be myself.”
