“Engaging! He presented realistic information and was very attuned to issues facing leading change.”

Cynthia Houston, principal, New Midway/Woodsboro Elementary School, Maryland

“Casey has taken a very ‘psychological’ view of leadership. It is so important. As leaders we must seek to know and understand our faculty/staff in order to bring out the best in each team member.”

Belinda McKinion, assistant principal, Saltillo Elementary School, Mississippi
