The Missing Piece in My Education as a Manager

I was working in a support role in a business office, not sure I was ready to apply for the top job, when my mentors recommended the Leadership Institute. I applied, was accepted and am forever grateful.

The Leadership Institute completed a missing piece to my education as a manager. My master’s coursework had laid the foundation of the basic skills needed to be a school business official, but the Leadership Institute taught me management of others and effective communication with others.”
