Leadership Development Opportunities

Through the EPHLI institute, I have acquired many tools that I can utilize every day at work as well as in my personal life.  The institute taught me new thought processes that really get to the root of the problem.  It also has helped me tremendously with conflict management as well as helping me understand personal and organizational behavior. The institute also provided excellent networking opportunities and new friends.
