My experience, although early in the Global Leadership Training Program, has already delivered an immediate positive impact on how I view my position, roles and responsibilities, and operational discipline. The program structure provides pre-work case studies, group breakout discussions with peers across industries, and practical actions to implement. I have no doubt I will come out of this experience a better leader.
