“We hired CORE Leader for our incoming MBA class and the event was a huge success! The CORE team taught a sleek, military-inspired framework for attacking problems and then reinforced it through an obstacle challenge course that had the students raving for weeks. The CORE Leader team was incredibly professional and easy to work with, always keeping our students' needs at the forefront. Perhaps most importantly, our students bonded in an authentic way that we've found hard to replicate in other such events. We will definitely be bringing CORE Leader back to campus for future events: there is simply nothing else that can provide a similarly unforgettable experience with the convenience that CORE offers.”

"CORE Leader training provided our students with a unique approach to understanding leadership and teamwork. Our students were challenged in a number of ways - physically, intellectually, and in developing successful strategies to group problem-solving. CORE Leader training is beyond working around an obstacle course. It is about developing comprehensive and tangible leadership skills."

"As part of our efforts to increase high level team building skills and a cohesiveness among the Simon MBA Class of 2018, we brought in CORE Leader to instill the specific skills and thought-processes needed for successful teamwork, cohesion, and effectiveness as part of MBA Orientation. It was an incredible opportunity for our students to think strategically in a quick, fast paced environment. Every decision made, whether by one individual or the entire group, affected the overall missions put in place by CORE. Our students are entering this academic year as if they have known and worked with each other for years: the interpersonal and operational benefits are immediately evident. In my opinion, CORE Leader is the fastest, most effective way to create lasting bonds and help team members reflect on their own strengths and development areas."

“I highly recommend the CORE Leader program for any athletic team looking to enhance the development of leaders and the concept of teamwork. The CORE Leaders provide stimulating instruction, using real life situations, providing the students with a blueprint for problem solving that can be used in any situation. The program is designed to be physically and mentally challenging but the results we were looking for were immediately evident."

“As part of annual Leadership and Ethics Week at Columbia Business School, we were looking for an experiential learning program which would help reinforce previously taught management and leadership skills for our students. However, our experience with CORE Leader went above and beyond expectations and our students were introduced to a new way of thinking in terms of the Military Decision-Making Process which focuses on an action-oriented managerial framework. Our students were pushed outside of their comfort zones and truly left with a greater understanding of how to work as a unit to effectively communicate and adjust to undue pressures in order to succeed at the mission in a high stakes environment. We will certainly be inviting CORE Leader back to campus in order to allow more students to experience this impactful and important program.”
