This sequential, four-course, 8-day program is designed based on the Office of Personnel Management Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), and provides participants with ideas, techniques, experiential exercises, and contemplative reflections to apply those competencies directly to the challenges they face in the workplace.

The Key Experience

After 20 years in the Army, and many training events, I can say with certainty that the J Band training in concert with the one on one coaching is the best training/program that I've had...ever, Thank you TSA and AU for changing my life!

—Key Student in TSA Leadership Institute J10 Cohort on their experience with Executive Coaching

This has been one of the best courses and opportunities I have had in my professional career. I highly recommend Tracy, [Key Executive Coach], to any senior professional.

Key Student on their experience with Key and Executive Coaching

Great program. I particularly appreciated that the instructors gave time for us to learn from each other and didn't just lecture at us. They could have just lectured; instead they mentored and coached. The conversations we had were very meaningful. I already have a list of ideas that I want to implement. Thank you.
