Leadership Development Opportunities
My experiences with EPHLI have given me new tools to use in advancing environmental health. Systems thinking provides insight into the interaction of different departments and groups. It is easy to assume those who disagree with you are wrong; a systems thinking outlook has allowed me to see that there is a legitimate reason from another person’s perspective. In addition I have gained tools to use in helping change policies.
Meeting with Environmentalists from throughout the country has allowed me to common problems and how others have dealt with them. It is easy to get tunnel vision, EPHLI has motivated me to have a broader perspective. My IDP and development coaching allowed me to focus developing leadership skills.
