"(Speaking as a Leadership Day Panelist) Thanks Audie – It was my pleasure. Having spoken to this group twice, I can share my impression that the students in this program (FRL) are deeply engaged. As a panel member, it’s an absolute treat to connect with people so invested in their own leadership development. I hope this helps! Meg."

"The Leadership Acceleration program pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to explore leadership in a new way. From emotional intelligence to difficult conversations, to innovation and the one on one coaching; it was a great opportunity to gain an understanding of both myself and the team that I work with."

"The Mohawk Future Ready Leadership program provided me with an abundance of leadership tools, tactics and techniques that I was able to apply immediately in my career, even before the program was over! The relationship built with my team-mates throughout the program was invaluable, as I learned to work with many different working styles as we pursued one collective goal for our project – that’s what being a people leader is all about."

That was a great cross-connection course you put together.
I was grateful that you were able to understand my job and to cater examples to my field of work. I found the course had a mix of different learning styles. I am a hands-on learner and found the best part was having time to take apart, rebuild and test BFs. The props in the class room were a nice touch, being able to see how they all worked made a big difference.
I hear a lot of people say this course is tough, I agree but that’s because there is so much information is coming at you. You found a way for that to stick in my head and it made it to be more than just about backflows, surveys and cross-connections. You made it interesting and gave me answers to plumbing issues that I wondered about for years. Most of all it was fun.
Thank you for all that you put in this, it was very enjoyable."
