testimonials

“ Learning to Lead taught me how to become the best, most confident version of myself. ”

“ Minerva showed me that it is possible to be an empathetic, reflective leader while still being strong, determined, and focused. I don’t have to choose between the two. ”

“ I thought my leadership skills were somewhat lacking because I don’t look or feel like a conventional leader. I thought I would emerge from this course looking or acting like something different from who I am. At Minerva I learned that my leadership qualities come from my natural strengths and core values. I learned that I can show up as my authentic self. ”
