“The Leader Dogs for the Blind’s HPL program was a hit with our senior team. The hands-on experience with the guide dogs really cemented the themes Buss Brauer delivered in his unique, accessible presentations. Each of my leaders took different lessons from the program, but they all found it engaging and memorable.”

Dan Meloni: Sr. Director, Talent Development, ProQuest

“Research tells us that an emotional connection is required for learners to transfer short-term knowledge into long-term, have-it-for-a-lifetime, cognition. Simply put, Leader Dogs for the Blind’s HPL program is a great way to create that essential, emotional connection to solid leadership principles. And people love seeing the dogs – and experiencing those amazing creatures up close, for themselves!”

“Being a leader in today’s ever-changing environment is difficult to say the least. Leaders, like anyone other professional, must improve their skills. The Leader Dog Leadership Training provides real world leadership skills through the experiences of the training and use of Guide Dogs. My experience in this workshop ranks right up there with the best leadership training workshops I have ever taken. I personally teach leadership courses for public officials around the State of Michigan and the lessons learned here will serve me well. I highly recommend this training to professionals from any sector. Thank you Leader Dog!”

“The program was such a success that we already plan to return next year with 2019’s Student Senate. Student organizations, like student government, Greek life, athletics, clubs, etc., are ‘leadership laboratories’ that give the nation’s future leaders a chance to learn and practice their skills in settings conducive to their growth. That said, Harness the Power of Leadership was ideal for teaching them the foundational concepts of leadership and management in a way that was engaging, impactful, and fun.”
