"The Leadership Academy was very beneficial to me and would be for other leaders, whether they are seasoned veteran's or new in the leadership role. I appreciated the fact that all of the professors had real-life experience prior to beginning to teach. During the three-month course, I developed new leadership skills that have aided my professional growth and I made great connections with other insurance professionals. This was a very good investment all the way around!"

"The Independent Insurance Agents of Texas Leadership Academy is a must take for anyone wanting to improve their management skills. In a short time I improved several important skills: interpersonal effectiveness, putting together and organizing effective teams and customer service.
