"I began this program as an new employee tasked with Project Management as the primary responsibilities. While I have experience in the this area of focus, I found the program to really expand my knowledge and help me think about the way in which I work with and interact with my team. The Leadership component has provided such great insight to understand people and personality styles but also who to look at conflict resolution from a more positive perspective. I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in this program and to work closely with other service providers with the organization."

The Future Ready Leadership program provides key resources and practical information to developing and improving upon skills for leaders in the workforce. By delving into and providing insights on effective leadership development, our trainer was able to administer and encourage a deeper conceptualization of exceptional leadership. Throughout this program, I was able to develop and explore new concepts aimed at motivating, inspiring and building team unity through effective leadership. Building on the foundations I already possessed, Future Ready Leadership enhanced my skills, while providing current and practical applications to effective leadership, which I use in my everyday work environment. This program is exceptionally beneficial to new and experienced leaders, with practical and effective applications for leadership skills building."

Sandra and Jack created an exceptional environment for learning and I looked forward to each session.

I have also maintained the contacts and network created with the participants from other municipalities who were in the same cohort. "
