What is LEAPP Ahead?

LEAPP Ahead is an entertaining and educational series of skill-building programs developed by Jim McGraw, a former top executive at Marion Laboratories and Chairman of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The programs are FREE and reveal effective principles of business leadership that Jim utilized throughout his career. He shares them now as his way of saying thank you for a great career.
Jim and the LEAPP Ahead program were recently featured on the Pittsburg State University website.

“Jim’s presentation was perfect for students. It was such a nice mix of essential skills blended with a bird’s eye view into an incredibly successful company. To top that off, it was presented by an individual who was clearly interested in each and every student in the room.”
