Curious what past participants have said about the program?

“I have only positive experiences to reflect on from my time in LeadFit. The course teaches you many core competencies required to be a successful leader. It’s easy to see how effective the curriculum is in developing trust with employees, peers, or any relationship where the techniques are applied.” – Jason Sands, SM Energy

”LeadFit changed the way I think about and approach leadership. Relationships are the foundation of any business, especially for CPAs. Learning about how much relationship building involves introspection has been invaluable professionally and personally. Lorrie is incredibly knowledgeable and teaches the content of the program with passion and clarity. I would recommend LeadFit to any one at any level of the profession. It will open your eyes to the relationship side of the business that you wished you would have known a long time ago.” – Kyle Green, Wall Smith Bateman Inc, Alamosa

“LeadFit—I have been out of public accounting for about 10 years and wanted an update and reboot. The classes were very informative and learning new ways to interact is a huge plus. The participants were a great group of professionals and the relationships I developed are priceless. I would take the class every year if I could. Lorrie was a great leader and we had a lot of fun too!” – Elizabeth Christine Nickels, CPA, Wellstar Corporation
