The Executive Leadership Experience program helped me to shift my focus to be more strategic and provided tools to accelerate this transition. This program help me better grasp the role of organization leadership and how vital it is to the ongoing success of an organization. By applying some of the technique taught at Belmont, I was better able to influence my peer, support my team member and provide a vision for my area of responsibility. Lastly, my coach and supervisor were able to tailor growth opportunities to stretch my mind and ability beyond my capabilities thus leading to a promotion. I would recommend this program to emerging or new leaders to help them transition from managing to leading.
