"It was great to see that everyone who participated could find some tangible part of the program that they were able to apply to their jobs to become better leaders. I thought it was a great opportunity to bring that to our front line leaders, so that they felt like we were investing in them and that they had some opportunity to grow outside of their day-to-day jobs."
