Information was flowing both ways and that was a great way to engage from day 1: we not only learned from Dr. Yasmin but also from all the fellows. This made it extremely valuable given the mixed backgrounds within the cohort: financial, HR, non-profit, law, engineering etc. In addition, personalized action plans developed for personal improvements to create habits were implemented with associated accountability, not only to coaches and learning teams with fellows but also with selected stakeholders at work.

Always take a moment to reflect on those important things that give meaning to a long-term vision for leadership. Taking the time to nurture myself, learn from others and add value to others leadership journeys should be a top priority at this stage in my career.
