Here’s what previous participants had to say about the class:
“I am really happy I took this course. I learned a lot about myself and discovered ways I can be more effective at work, in handling challenging situations, in promoting myself, and in creating more positive dynamics with everyone I work with.”
“I liked that we had the platform to explore these “Women in Leadership” topics as a group. Amy, is a wonderful, sincere, flexible, cohesive leader and it was an honor to take this class. I also enjoyed getting to know the other participants and see everyone grow from this experience.”
“I loved the group of women — by the end we had evolved into such a safe, supportive group that I wish we could continue. The content is gauged very well to get us to look at our internal attitudes about our own capabilities and then gain confidence and move forward in our careers.”
