I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand - 

Chineese Proverb

​Beck Leadership is NOT about taking notes, listening to lectures, or watching lengthy slide presentations. It's about learning-to-do-by-doing, by participating, taking risk, applying the materials on a daily basis, in and outside of the classroom. 
In a positive and reinforcing environment that encourages growth, you'll have a wide variety of opportunities to practice your communication and leadership skills. This proven, once-a-week for 5 weeks class, will equip you with the essential tools you need to become an effective, charismatic leader ... in any situation.
   
"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us." ~~   Marcel Proust

Course Outline 

Training is different from seminars. With a seminar you might watch slides, participate in discussions and take notes. Training is more involving and personalized to goals, and skill improvement versus knowledge. Even exposure to the truth will not enhance ability unless there is awareness, motivation, application, evaluation and finally, personal acceptance of a new technique. Therefore, training is conducted on a spaced-repetition schedule, allowing the process of learning to occur. It is impossible to change what we are not aware of, and equally difficult to improve, until we find a better, sometimes easier method and convince ourselves to use it on a continuous basis. Self-improvement is a process of self-discovery, closer to a combination lock, than a key.

"Nothing is ever real until it is experienced." John Keats
