One of the most valuable parts of my Executive Masters at NYU was having coaching sessions with Breandan. His experience, preparation, intelligence, and equanimity were essential for this process to be successful. I felt heard, understood, and motivated. After sessions with Breandan, you leave with a very clear plan of how to face important decisions. I encourage every student and professional to seek leadership coaching sessions with Breandan.
Testimonials from Workshops and Classrooms
I found all of the topics in Breandan’s sessions useful – I especially appreciated universal design, language, and intersectionality. I wish we had more time so that we could dive even deeper!
Every single reading, assignment, video, discussion, case-study, and exercise was relevant and necessary. The level to which Professor Ward brought forward diversity, equity, and inclusion into every single topic in the most thoughtful ways was truly exemplary and every other professor should be made aware that this is how you do DEI!
Courses like this are the reason why people (particularly the younger generations) come to NYU, it is a shame that it is not more widely offered. This course exemplifies everything we claim to uphold on standards and values, so it really must be more widespread and compulsory.
Breandan’s class covered different topics than any other course I’ve taken, and I wish more people have the chance to engage with this course material! Thank you Breandan for leading such an engaging set of classes.
Prof. Ward was extremely gracious, collaborative, attentive and funny. He made a 9am-5pm class fly by. The readings were interesting and relevant, the topics all felt very current, and our discussions included both the theoretical and practical. This has easily been one of my favourite courses!
This is one of the best courses I’ve taken during my time at NYU. Professor Ward is incredibly well-spoken, well-thought out, and organized. He’s also open to feedback from students in real time and makes adjustments accordingly.
