"My most important professional experience ever. Individuals in leadership positions hardly ever receive such significant feedback. Thanks to wonderful colleagues, experienced and generous faculty, and an amazing environment providing an absolutely safe and creative situation, we all could grow, assess and be humbled by the trust we were given. I have benefited enormously personally, and love sharing gained knowledge and ideas with my staff and beyond."
