"I would like to let you know how beneficial the Virginia Chief Officer Academy has been to me. During our week together we received so much information that is was almost too much to process. Now that we have completed one mentoring session and one coaching session it has reinforced all of those concept we received in class. This type of academy format has also made me realize that I have not been the mentor/coach that I need to be. With your help during our coaching session I am going to start a program in my own department to foster this type of leadership that the fire service is missing. Thanks again for all of your help and future help with this crazy idea."
