A workshop focused on 

the pursuit of excellence in communications and leadership training.

In any professional endeavor or academic setting speech content is important; yet of equal or greater importance is the ability to convey that content to an audience and achieve specific learning objectives in sharing that information with that audience. This seminar-style workshop focuses on the critical thinking, analysis, and practical skills essential to express one’s reasoning clearly, both in oral and written form. The workshop will focus on how to present information in a credible, convincing, polished and professional manner. The workshop emphasizes elements of persuasive communication; how to design well-organized messages for various audiences including culturally diverse and possibly resistant meeting attendees. Teaching methods will include lectures, simulations, extemporaneous and impromptu speaking, videoed oral presentations, and in-class exercises. This workshop can be tailored to meet client needs ranging from 4 to 8 weeks.  


The DNA of Ethical Leadership & the Good Society
This seminar was developed by Marv based upon a paper he wrote in conjunction with the Masters of Science in Global Leadership program at the University of San Diego in 2001. The seminar examines the basic premise of leadership, specifically the primary factors that determine an individual's personal approach to leading others to achieve and succeed in a highly diverse and competitive global society.

Join the seminar and participate in a unique introspective learning experience that will reshape your view and increase your appreciation for the circumstances that influence character development and, ultimately, our destiny as leaders. If interested in tailoring a seminar to meet your organizational needs, please contact Marv directly to schedule a mutually convenient date/time.



Captain Serhan’s distinguished record as a naval aviator alone would merit our respect and invite a close reading of reflections on the essence and challenges of leadership. His essay “The DNA of Ethical Leadership and the Good Society”, goes beyond this in offering a formula that places the development of personal character at the very heart of our nation’s hopes for a better future.
