“I applied to the NELI Ascending Leaders Certificate program to develop my confidence and competence as a leader, in hopes of accelerating my track to a senior leadership position.
It was extremely valuable for me to engage in self-assessments to identify my strengths and my leadership style. I think about what I learned pretty much every day. I'm now better able to articulate the strengths I contribute to projects, and build teams that bring in other styles and strengths to complement my own. My organization is hiring now, and I think that I'm better at vetting candidates - and will be a better supervisor - because I've deepened my understanding of different leadership styles and how best to draw on and motivate each style."
