Associate Counsel at the New York State Insurance Fund

“I have wanted to make myself a Growth Agent in my organization in order to make a significant contribution to the organization, grow myself as a person and a professional, and share that growth with my organization. I have been wanting to take myself outside of fixed ways of thinking. This course has been very helpful in my becoming a Growth Agent, especially through peer-to-peer coaching, study groups, live coaching, webinars, and supplemental materials that were provided on the interactive course website and discussion board. The course allowed me to confidently look at myself through three different lenses of growth. The first is looking at my role in whatever group I am a part of or working with. The second is how to interact with others, based on my own perspectives and mindsets. And the third is how I am able to look at myself as part of the organization. These lenses have given me a lot of personal insight into ways that I can be a more productive and more confident communicator and positively impact systems to which I am aligned.”
