Leadership Development Opportunities
When I applied for the institute I had no idea what was involved. I had a personal goal to develop my leadership skills and the EPHLI seemed like a great way to do that. The MBTI, SKILLSCOPE 360 survey and the Change Style Indicator gave me great insight into my personality and why I do things the way I do.
The institute was also my first exposure to Systems Thinking. I have now been using this as a tool to determine where system breakdowns have occurred and to develop long-term solutions rather than relying on quick fixes to the problem. The institute also gave me a great opportunity to network with others across the nation and to share resources. It was beneficial to hear about others’ issues in environmental health, their differences and similarities. My mentor and team were very supportive and helpful during the institute. Overall, the institute has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. I feel honored to have been given this opportunity.
