"This program is great! I took this opportunity to certify RBLP-T because I did not know what I did not know. A dear friend certified RBLP-T and ever since then he has been more adaptive, listens more, and creates the type of dialog that inspires tangible change. That's the type of leader my Sailors deserve. I can tell you first hand, if you believe you know everything, think again. RBLP makes goodness into greatness. A can't miss opportunity."
