Leadership on a whole new level!!!

After attending the Intentional Leadership and the Master Leader and Presenter classes (I HIGHLY recommend both! They will change your life and how you view leadership!), I have listened to this podcast on a more frequent basis than before. It’s like I’m in class all over again but without getting to speak. These podcasts definitely keep me refreshed and going while continuing to build my leadership skills to fulfill my purpose. Thanks Dean for sharing all your wisdom on leadership that can be used not only in our professional lives but our personal lives as well.

Outstanding podcast on Leadership

I just met Kelly today in Randolph Massachusetts. Dean was teaching a class that I heard from cops was an outstanding class. Although I have followed Dean and his work including his book, I had not heard of the podcast until today. Simply put I listened to a couple of episodes and it is outstanding. It science based but what I love is he brings the art of leadership and field research into it. Theory is great but this putting leadership into practice is the key. This podcast will help all leaders from the frontline to the administration in improving their style and effectiveness.

Valuable Law Enforcement Leadership Podcast

Dean

I was a student of your on FBI LEEDA and enjoyed one of your milestones in Lewisville, Texas.

Your lessons are great and the leadership advice you give is definitely it in the BS zone.

Keep up the great success at LHLN and this podcast.
