“What I have found is that executive leadership coaching and the Applied Leadership Seminar are transformational. Not only do executives improve their leadership ability, but when teams come together for a shared learning experience about leadership they walk away not only being better leaders individually, but the team is more cohesive, the team knows what’s expected of it, and the team knows how to inspire the rest of the organization.”-Al Bolea
What Clients Are Saying:
I met Al Bolea about 20 months ago in Houston when we were planning a restructuring of our company. This was a significant change and I needed commitment and strong leadership from my core team. On the first day of the seminar there was noticeable resistance in the room from some of the management team. Several of them admitted they thought, “here we go again another leadership course — can’t wait to get out of here.” Al’s course content, teaching style, industry experience, coaching and candid demeanor changed all of the doubters and resisters to raving fans. I have participated in many leadership seminars over my 35 year career and the one Al put on that week raised the bar significantly. Al has been a good coach and mentor since we first met and continues to communicate with the team today.

Two months ago Al Bolea delivered his Applied Leadership Seminar to 16 employees representing a cross section of the company from the top to the front line. I have seen a change already – the collective behaviors have advanced and a stronger team is emerging. We are dedicating the last half of our twice monthly operations leadership meeting to continuing the discussion that the leadership training has begun. In addition I’ve brought Al back for a repeat performance with another 16 employees. It’s all about the conversation and my senior leadership team and I have made the Applied Leadership model part of what we do.

For Petro Star and me personally, I found the Applied Leadership Seminar to be exactly what we were looking for to take our refinery management team to the next level. It was so beneficial we conducted an abbreviated version for our entire refinery operations department.
Outlier! Al was the top rated speaker at the 2015 Alaska State HR Conference. His session was packed and had to be closed to the disappointment of many. With 94 percent of the attendees giving him the highest mark, he was described as engaging, subject matter expert, energetic, entertaining, educational and fun.
