I am a graduate of the Leadership program, HCL17. I went through the program virtually at the height of the pandemic. Before signing up, I wasn’t sure how effective/valuable it can be to do a transformative program online vs. in person. I must say it was every bit valuable and the virtual connections with the trainers and participants were visceral and real.
The exercises revealed to me how much of my life I wasted being worried about what others thought of me and the result was a diluted version of who I am. I cared too much for making people like me that I neglected to like myself. Leadership training showed me the value of living life authentically with integrity. That self love and acceptance is critical to one’s thriving in life.
I thought the training would lead to one big breakthrough at the end but I discovered it was more like an acupuncture avalanche of breakthroughs.
Since the training, I’ve been on a path of career success as well as physical and emotional well-being. It was certainly an investment that created a residual return of constant progress in my life.
