“The eight week Leadership Certificate Program developed and taught by Dominican’s Barowsky School of Business delivered exactly what we needed to create a common understanding of our vision and equip our management with a primer on how to get there…fantastic program…next year we will collaborate again to focus more in depth on key requirements.”

Lee Domanico, CEO, Marin General Hospital

“Dominican’s “The Making of Visionary Leaders!” has had a tremendous, positive impact on our key senior managers. We have benefitted from their personal growth as well as the value they bring to the organization. One of our executives initiated a companywide program to create a much more focused account management, which will help us improve customer profitability. The investment in the program has been well worth it.”

Russ Colombo, CEO, Bank of Marin

“The leadership class has given me the tools to make positive personal changes to be the absolute best for the District. As a leader, I am encouraged to raise my standards and be an inspiration for others. It is my goal to be committed to excellence in order to support the District’s Mission Statement and ultimately the customers we serve.”

Carmel O’Hara, Payroll Manager, Golden Gate District Transit Authority

“Through “The Making of Visionary Leaders!” I have challenged my old leadership concept of control, stability, competition and self-centered focus. As a result, I have transformed it into a new reality requiring empowerment, change, collaboration, diversity, and focusing on a higher ethical purpose. This course challenges those seeking to take charge to use new strategies that rely on human skills, integrity and teamwork.”

Bradford D. Simpkins, Vice President, Ghilotti Construction Co.

“From day one I found myself, both at work and at home, implementing techniques suggested in class discussions, and to my surprise they proved to be working. People are more willing to cooperate and goals are achieved quicker. I have learned that being a leader is a decision one should retake every day, that it comes with responsibilities and risks, as well as excitement and achievements. But most importantly, I was encouraged to find that Leadership is a skill that can be learned.”

Tal Ronnen Oron, Lab Manager, The Buck Institute for Research on Aging

“Dominican's leadership program has taught me to think, act and respond differently to everyone around me. It made me a better leader at work but also at home and as a high school football coach. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone wanting to be a strong and respected leader.”

Joe Murphy, Area Manager, WBE Inc.

“The 'Leadership Certificate' was a very valuable experience. As a Human Resources Director, and someone always challenged to develop leaders, this was the best. We have engaged Dominican Exec. Ed. to customize their approach to address our future challenges, and are regularly offering the experience through a rigorous application process. It has become a powerful mean to help us transform our culture.”

Joanne Peterson H.R. Director, County of Marin

“Most importantly, I want to say thank you. There are times when I am more ready to hear and learn than at other times, and I can honestly say I was ready to take it all in, and subsequently act on it. It has made a difference for me, and in me. I now stop and “look for” and “look at” the strategies of what I, and my organization, are executing or planning. It’s my responsibility as a leader to dig into this. It’s not for someone else to decide or to own. The collection of professionals that led?? the sessions were excellent. Dr. V, your knowledge and wisdom are inspiring. Thank you for mentoring me. Thank you - period.”

Anna Nogueiro, HR Director Nelson Staffing

“Our five year partnership with Dominican University of California's Executive Education has, and is, producing the desired outcomes. They developed an 11 session “Leadership Academy", which is highly sought after by our employees through an application process. The program is delivering on two major objectives: foster the development of self-starters who can think strategically, as well as actively move our culture to be truly customer focused. We value this partnership to support our talent development, and we highly recommend it.”

Matthew Hymel, CAO, County of Marin
