Leadership Development Opportunities

It has been an honor to participate in the EPHLI program over the past year. The experience has been intellectually challenging, eye-opening, and very gratifying. The EPHLI curriculum gave me a much-needed opportunity to pause and reflect on my career, my development as a professional, and how I can best contribute in my workplace. The Leadership Project gave me a reason and opportunity to dissect an issue that has long been on the “too hard” list for the Coast Guard. I hope that I am able to take the results of the project and continue to make positive change in our hearing conservation program. It has been a pleasure working with so many passionate and talented professionals over the past year, including my coach, Keith Keene, and mentor, Steve Hicks. I am so grateful to everyone in the cohort and on the EPHLI staff for sharing their knowledge, enthusiasm, and humor with me over the past year.
