Service members who have earned certification through RBLP have a lot to say about the program.
I’d highly recommend this to all professionals, especially front-line leaders. I wish there were an opportunity like this earlier in my career. I would have been a better leader, quickly increasing retention and overall morale. Highly recommend members of the U.S. Coast Guard earn their certification.
This certification is an amazing way to translate all the leadership training service members receive, which all too often doesn’t translate to the civilian sector well.
The RBLP-T certification should be required for every new Chief Petty Officer in the Navy.
I have strongly encouraged my superiors, peers, and subordinates to consider this certification program.
I have served in leadership positions for a long time (>20 years) and I can honestly say this certification process is one of the best I have been through. It really helped me to refocus on the highly important priority of building resilient teams to create learning organizations.
