What Chiefs of Staff are saying

The mental models and frameworks were fantastic! Having a practical resource that I can go back to is really helpful. It was also great to hear about the experiences of more seasoned CoS' -- I found that to be particularly helpful for both new insights, and validation on my approaches/thinking.

Tangible products to take away from these sessions were very useful. While great to have the ‚Äúthink big‚ÄĚ conversations, it was also very nice to be able to walk away and come BACK to a real template or written framework to guide/reference.
