Leadership Development Opportunities

The EPHLI program has been a truly rewarding experience that has broadened my vision as an environmental health profession and as an individual. The tools of systems thinking coupled with action learning now provides me with a way to visualize a problem in terms of its relationship in a larger system. This program has pushed me out of my professional comfort zone and equipped me with new competencies to apply in the programs I now manage. I would like to thank all those who provided comments or input into this project.

 

Input on my skillscope gave me an opportunity to get feedback on how co-workers and managers viewed my contributions and leadership potential. I used that feedback to develop an individual development plan for self- directed professional growth and improvement. Finally, my partner, team members, and mentor are definitely some of the brightest young minds in the profession and working with them during this year has been rewarding. The work enthusiasm displayed on the conference calls, at the face to face sessions and office conversations is what I appreciate most about this experience.
