Soldiers who have earned certification through RBLP have a lot to say about the program.

The RBLP-T certification program took my 20+ years of leadership experience in the US Army and gave me actionable ways to teach/help others build teams and organizations that thrive in the face of adversity and change. 

Teresa Bodner


The Resilience-Building Leader Program is by far one of the most valuable certification programs that every Soldier should add to their professional training pathway. 

Algrish Williams


This certification has enabled me to take the leadership, team building, and resiliency skills that the military has taught me over the past 20 years and utilize them in ways that I never thought imaginable.

Greg Freeman


After 19 years in the military, graduating from Grad School with a Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership; I honestly thought there was no other program or training that would challenge me, and prepared me for my current position and future opportunities. However, the RBLP-T program took things to another level. I honestly found myself applying everything I learned in each session at work and in my daily life. This program is a must for Leaders that want to change those they lead for the good of the organization and for the better of society

Ephraim Varela


Teams and organizations succeed not solely through individual success but rather by the forging of strong collections of individuals through teamwork and resilience where both mission and vision can align. The RBLP-T certification program took the lessons learned and doctrinal knowledge from over 20 years of service and nested them into a professional credentialing program that should be mandatory for all FLLs who aspire to lead successful and resilient teams.
