Leadership Development Opportunities

My participation in the Environmental Public Health Leadership Institute has had a great impact on my personal and professional life. The tools I have learned and the knowledge gained can be used everyday at home and at work. Through the Skillscope 360, Myers-Briggs, and Change Style Indicator, I learned a great deal about myself and my tendencies. This has helped me to become a more effective communicator. Understanding the various personality traits and the strengths of each has helped me become a better team leader. I am truly grateful for my participation in Cohort V and would like to thank the mentors, coaches, and staff of EPHLI for a rewarding and meaningful experience.
