Earlier this year, I participated in the Driven to Lead program, hosted by the PMTC Young Leaders group and sponsored by KRTS and TransRep. By participating in this course I have learned how to communicate more impactfully and effectively with my team and different strategies for coaching, leading and building stronger teams within the company. By implementing the strategies learned, we as a team have created a stronger sense of culture within the company! The learnings and takeaways from this program are invaluable and serve me and my team everyday. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have participated in and completed this program!
