Leadership Academy Testimonial

“This was the best day! Take aways included how to organize a meeting, how to respond to new colleagues (resisters, early adopters, etc.), and how to get your voice heard. Also, the conflict styles helped as did concrete strategies to deal with difficult people. I appreciate the underlying theme of principled decision-making. Today’s sessions were also well facilitated – with a mix of information, small group, and whole group discussion.”
