Testimonials from 2019 Leadership Intensive Participants:
Leadership Intensive is different than anything that I have ever participated in before. In the Leadership Intensive, you are in constant communication with Ian Hill about your daily, weekly, and monthly experiences. Ian helps you work on your strengths and weaknesses as an employee and as a person. This program is fun, intense, and personalized to fit you as opposed to you fitting the program.
While going through the Leadership Intensive program, you are able to use the systems learned and apply them into your own workplace. Participants talk with the group about how they are progressing, what they are learning, and what they are implementing at their job. You will have a difficult time finding a course that is this individualized to you. The information that I have learned from Ian and the others in this group are instrumental into helping me be the person and employee that I strive to be.
-Trent Buchman, Blue Valley Recreation Commission
I continue to be amazed at Ian’s ability to take broad concepts and break them down into small and manageable pieces that he is then able to articulate clearly to the rest of us through printed information, short videos, livestream training sessions, and personal interactions. What I have found to be most valuable, however, is his willingness to set aside an hour of his time, every single week, to meet with me via phone for a coaching session. In these sessions we talk about real situations that I’m dealing with in my professional life, and he coaches me through them to find the best possible strategy to get to my desired outcome. He’s taken me on a journey to discover things about myself so that I can build on my strengths and recognize the areas I need to work on, and through that process I’ve discovered positive changes and habits that have affected my personal life as well. I feel like he truly knows me, maybe better than a lot of people, and has given me the tools to learn more about those I work with in the same way.

I love being able to work with Ian one-on-one on a weekly basis. It gives us the opportunity to discuss issues I’m dealing with and he helps me solve problems individually rather than generically in a large group. As we go through the program, it has been easy to implement the systems he is teaching us and he does a great job showing us how to apply it to real life situations. The group sessions have been very interactive and fun, especially because it gives us the opportunity to tell each other how we’ve applied what we’re learning. Love the personal feedback and individual attention!
The naming of this program is spot-on, it’s intense!… but in a good way. This program has pushed me to be more strategic in my dealings with others and has helped strengthen my professional relationships. I have added a number of tools to my professional tool belt and am continuing to gain more and more knowledge every day. Having a personal coach to guide you through challenges while keeping you grounded has been the biggest game changer for me. For those committed to making a true change, this program is for you!
