Leadership Development Opportunities

The Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has assisted me in my professional growth and development by introducing me to a wide range of people from across the United States, who may perform the same work that I do but approach it from a different aspect. Learning about the Iceberg Theory and System Thinking really assisted me tremendously in thinking more strategically and thinking about unintended consequences. Those two theories/thoughts are now a part of my everyday lexicon. An essential tool that I recommend for future classes to use is the individual development plan coach/mentor. By using an unbiased person outside of your organization, to access your Skillscope 360 to develop a plan for improvement specifically tailored for you, was the best thing that I got out of the class. Hopefully, with an improved skill set in place, I can not only rise but prosper in my current organization.
