ABOUT RUBICON COA
The Rubicon COA Origins
The Rubicon COA was created out of a personal desire to improve by leading oneself. When we lead ourselves, we become more effective at leading others.
Personal accountability is the root of leading self and links to all other leadership traits. Through a rigorous and systematic process, we instill leadership traits in the individual that they can use for the remainder of their leadership journey.

Learn to lead others by learning to lead yourself first.
The Eagle represents strength and courage

Our mission is to develop the skills to lead oneself, improve others, and prepare people to commit to a definite purpose and certain course of action.
