Life Cycle Engineering testimonial

Life Cycle Engineering, a commercial consulting firm and defense contractor, talks about ethics, integrity and how leadership is critical to the success of their business.

ROBERT BENDETTI: Leadership is critical to the success of your business. It's the single greatest limiting factor of any business, and certainly Life Cycle engineering. Life Cycle Engineering is a commercial consulting firm and a defense contractor.

KELLAM WHITE: One of the things that impressed me most about Life Cycle Engineering is the motto, shall we say, do the right thing, the right way. Because in our business, ethics and integrity are everything. And the fact that we actually practice what we preach is extremely important.

ROBERT BENDETTI: Before the Leadership Institute class, I had been really successful in my career as a problem solver, but not every situation at work is a problem. I would also had a very confrontational or, sort of, a frontal attack since we're a Navy defense contractor, and that's not real effective all the time.

KELLAM WHITE: One of the issues that I found that I was having before the Leadership Institute was that I am very, very focused on the task at hand. I just assume incorrectly that everyone is 100% ready to go, let's make this work.

ROBERT BENDETTI: I've been so successful with the frontal attack and the problem solving for so long, but it wasn't going to help me here in a new role. And the Leadership Institute gave me new tools so I can learn to listen more, still working on it, and interact better with a team environment, and still working on that too.

KELLAM WHITE: At the Institute, I learned a lot about myself and how others perceive me when I'm in that mode. So I got basically a whole new toolkit of things that I can do to get to know my colleagues more. Spend time smelling the roses, and just understand that yes, we're going to get there. We just need to slow down a little bit.

ROBERT BENDETTI: I think it's absolutely worth it. It's a great investment. Investment in me personally that helped me both personally and professionally, but also a great investment in other team members. It's good to have another person in my department who we have the same vocabulary. We have the same, sort of, a shared experience. And so we have, I think, a greater bond because of it too.

KELLAM WHITE: Absolutely. I wholeheartedly recommend it. It was a fabulous experience. I just—I really want everyone to be able experience what I did. Life changing event. I think the mastering leadership dynamics class was the best leadership training I've ever taken in my life.
