testimonial-barbara-bowes"As a continuous learner, I recently attended a rigourous five day course  at the University of Manitoba, James W. Burns Executive Education Centre. The coaching certification course was delivered by Shana Ring, President of Destination Leadership from Regina. The program was outstanding, the instructor an exceptional leader and the Executive Education staff went beyond expectations. Not only is the centre an inspiring learning environment, the quality of this course, the instructor and the program materials went well beyond my expectations.  I’ve been coaching clients for over twenty years; I know I was a good coach but now because of this program, I am a much BETTER coach!  Thanks to U of M and to Shana Ring."
