“I have just completed the Thayer Values-Driven Leadership Journey. I found that the level of interaction and camaraderie for a remote training has far exceeded my expectations. The combination of lecture, reflections, and team interaction has been well orchestrated and in sound balance. This past weekend, I was discussing this digital program with a coworker who is a 2019 graduate of the onsite at West Point program. After we concluded our conversations, I feel that the digital experience and training allowed for a more comprehensive experience than the 1-week onsite program. The combination of online and offline learning spread over multiple weeks allowed me the opportunity to understand and practice in real time the learnings during the work week that I would not have had in an intensive 1-week course. I truly believe the digital format will have a measured and long-lasting impact on my leadership abilities.”
