It is truly amazing that we have reached the end of our first year in the program! Time really does fly when you are having fun. As I have been working on my word press site (and reviewing others along the way) I can’t help but notice how much has been accomplished in this first year. It is evident that we have all grown significantly as leaders and professionals in our industries. I know this program has made an immediate impact on how I “see” myself and my organization as well as equipping me with more knowledge on how to improve both. Certainly this program can seem a bit overwhelming and extremely time consuming for us all…but it never ceases to amaze me that we manage to get the job(s) done. I wanted to commend you all for your ability to juggle careers, personal lives and this program. We should all be proud of what we have accomplished thus far. I know the connections and friendships I have established throughout the first year are going be lasting ones. I am very excited about our potential (both group and individual) for the years to come!
