I learned how much the need to protect my ego has played into my behaviors and decisions both personally and professionally. Having that awareness has allowed me to make clearer business decisions devoid of fear and do higher quality work that’s more focused on the goals of the company.

I was fortunate to be introduced to the LaL program.

Through the 1-year graduate program I learned to move toward issues rather than running away when difficulties present themselves. I am having more direct, emotionally centered conversations with my peers, direct reports and board members, which ultimately leads to better teamwork.
The program gave me the time and space to reflect on challenges that we’re facing as an organization today and how I could apply the tools to improve our approach. Upon returning I have already made some significant shifts in how I’m leading our non‐profit, in how I am delegating and empowering others to step ... Read More
