My experience in the Executive Seminar Program fundamentally changed the way I frame issues and approach work relationships at every level. I learned to think more strategically and gained specific skills for building coalitions and engaging with partner agencies, potential adversaries, and the general public. Besides that, I had time and mentoring to develop a personal leadership plan, met amazing people and made new friendships in my cohort - and got to do all this in some of the most beautiful natural settings of our region.
