“I knew the MOL program would help me realize my potential to be the best leader I could be, but I did not know how it would change my life in so many ways. This program teaches you that leadership is multifaceted and once you understand that you see a change in how you interact with others in all areas. Life is about building and maintaining relationships. This program teaches you how to positively impact others and connect on a deeper level.”
