I really liked the strategic planning part of ADVANCE and all the material covered will be great for managing and leading people. Perhaps the most valuable part for me will be the greater understanding of myself that I obtained from the feedback I received during the program.

The tools Jerry and Kate gave us are particularly valuable. I have found myself frequently referring to the QuickLists I brought back with me, and I have used them with my staff. They are a chance to practically apply what I learned at ADVANCE. I enjoyed the ability to interact openly and honestly with other managers experiencing some of the same things I am experiencing. In many ways, ADVANCE felt as much like a facilitated discussion as it did a workshop. ADVANCE is an opportunity to look yourself straight in the eye, discover the ways in which you can improve, overcome inertia with the help of peers and professionals, and begin to make real change for yourself, your team, and your organization.
