What people say?

I gained from my experience the ability to manage through change. My mentor and I partnered on both managing my team through change and managing myself through change, and it was invaluable for not just the position I'm in today, but for future positions as well.

Through the program and my mentor, I received a lot of encouragement and gained a lot of confidence.  I really saw myself grow.
