“This program is great! 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. RBLP through BWA makes goodness into greatness. A can’t miss opportunity.”

“Rick makes people feel valuable. He reminded me that my successes had little to do with the rank I held but in what I did for others on a day-to-day basis. He shows and doesn’t just say” that he cares – routine check-ins, sharing vital information, and constant availability are only a few examples”
