“I learned more about myself as an individual and a leader after going through this experience […] [including] how to flip my mindset and become that leader or manager that my direct reports trust and want to work for.”
“I appreciated the depth of the program and how it delved into each ‘flip,’ citing specific things to work on and address as a new leader. It was helpful to learn that a lot of new leaders struggle with the same […] things.”
“I had several ‘a-ha’ moments while watching the videos and reading the articles which related to my […] experience. Hearing personal stories from others made me realize I’m not alone in this journey.”
