"I did not realize that the 360-feedback would be so central to my development process. I have realized now that meaningful change is well within my grasp."

Challenges
After being promoted into a new management role in my organization I faced some difficulties with having to supervise my former peers. The program helped me to be clear and transparent in dealing with the issues head-on. I was able to learn some useful real-world applications in handling these matters and how to lead and manage effectively throughout this period of change.

Impact
I was provided with the tools I needed to be able to have both truthful and difficult conversations while managing both up and down. I am now more effective and strategic in dealing with issues that arise. The time spent in the program also allowed me the opportunity for some introspection to reevaluate strategic thinking and being more impactful. I am not only finding my way through the forest, but learning how to change the forest as I move through it.
