Leadership development opportunities:
The EPHLI provided a tremendous personal growth experience. The self self assessments (MTBI, Skillscope, CSI) was useful in negoiating my precieved strenghth and weaknesses. I am particularly impressed with the systems thinking methodology and found it a useful innovative way to find solutions and discover impasses to problems. The work at the numerous sessions helped tremendously in learning the many methods in solving complex environmental problems in terms of : assessment, policy and solutions. The interaction with prospective leadership fellows was invaluable in learning different prespectives on environmental problems and solutions. I was particularly impressed with the session staff which allowed for a well organized process and pleasant experience. The many lecturers had great command of their subject area and were leaders in their field. They engaged the groups at our various sessions and challenged our present way of thinking and problem solving. I am very grateful for the opportunity to study and participate in the EPHLI .
