Here’s what attendees of the program are saying:

 “This program was excellent because it helped me to understand different aspects of leadership and create opportunities to improve the team. It provided me with theory and practice tools to make a difference in the department. It was a great opportunity to know myself and the team better, implementing change and fostering an environment with mutual respect and teamwork perception.”

 “The Emerging Leadership program has created a lasting impression on my leadership abilities. The program was full of valuable information about how to interact with colleagues, direct reports, and supervisors including everything from handling personality differences, framing important conversations, and building a team. I've used specific skills learned in the program in several situations.”

 “It was very beneficial working with other NSU leaders as our challenges are similar and it provides a cross-college experience. I have reached out to other groups on projects to involve them and to help get work done.”

"The single biggest way to impact an organization is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organization that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them."
