Hear More from Leaders of Organizations like Yours


Student Photo“There are many good programs on leadership and a few good classes on crisis management; but no where have I found both of those presented so well together.  Having a forum with faculty who have been “boots on the ground” and can speak directly to the big and small moments of being a leader during crises was invaluable.  The principles and practices weren’t just taught “in theory” but rather demonstrated out of previous experience which made everything more relevant. And, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the peer group, the quality of my classmates was top notch and I’m so glad to have connected with many of them.”

“The NPLI is a great laboratory for interagency coordination and activity. The challenges discussed in the curriculum were truly interagency as were the teams and the solutions.”

John Washburn
Deputy Director, Commander’s Action Group
U.S. Northern Command

“NPLI changed my perspective on leadership. This course is broadly applicable, way beyond preparedness and response planning.”

“I especially appreciated leaders walking us through real-world examples that they had lived and sharing a lot of detail and insight with us. The best day for me was when the tech wouldn’t work to send us to breakout rooms and we had a vibrant Q&A discussion, hearing everyone’s thoughts and freely using the chat window to further the discussion…”

It’s been said that it takes a village to raise a child.  This course emphasizes that it takes a community to succeed in the midst of crisis.  This program offers participants a new “community” to consult and lean on when needed. “

Brandye Terrell
Deputy Chief of Staff, Veterans Benefits Administration
Department of Veterans Affairs

“This course has already been invaluable, and my new skills have already helped change the dynamic in my team, and we are applying the principles every day. Lets put it this way, I’ve  asked to come back for the advanced session. Can’t wait to come back. I would recommend this course to anyone. From a budget and practical standpoint – the ROI on time and money, is without question one of the best on the market. Every minute counts at the moment, and this was worth investing every one of them. We were all sad to see each session close – which has got to be the highest accolade to a course.”
