"The McColl School program has been more than an educational learning experience for our organization...it has been a transformational learning experience. The McColl School provided Horizon Lines with a stimulating, thought provoking leadership program for our senior leaders and managers that has played a significant role in the development and execution of our strategic initiatives. They have a first class faculty who used their experience and extensive knowledge to help us design a structured program around our specific needs and objectives. One of the best attributes of the McColl School is that the relationship doesn't stop at the end of the program. They are genuinely interested in the success of your organization and they stay engaged to make sure you achieved the results you were looking for with their program."
Chuck Raymond, CEO
"The McColl School Executive Leadership Institute worked with us to develop a unique program for the education and development of our executives and managers. The program fits our needs perfectly. "
Ernie Schaub, CEO
"We looked at a number of different schools. The difference is that the McColl School clearly focused on what Clariant needed whereas other schools offered a package of services and programs that weren't unique to what we believed was in the best interests of our company... (Participants) come back very energized...they don't come back with a bunch of generic business concepts. They come back with ideas on how they can be applied to specific Clariant issues... As part of our program we put together Action Learning Teams and everyone of our participants worked on a real live Clariant issue, whether it was an acquisition, a divestiture. We have a new business we started up last year and many of the fresh, new ideas for that business have come out of classroom sessions at Queens. They bring real life experience and real life energy toward Clariant issues and opportunities back with them."
Ken Golder, CEO
"The McColl School participants returned loaded with action items to discuss strategic issues regarding their businesses. I must admit that I am surprised how much more wide ranging their perspectives are after spending a few days in the classroom. I am getting questions and debates I would never have gotten before. Very positive development."
Paul Baldetti, Division President - Garlock Sealing Technologies
"Although all of us docs are perennial students and enjoy the process of learning, these sessions have been special and memorable and beneficial in ways that we rarely experience. It's rather like being introduced to a new wing of my house that I never knew existed, and which has many features I've longed for. Now it is up to us to furnish and employ our expanded intellectual space! Although our time is almost over, I'd love to do it all again."
