Amy Olson, Administration Team Lead, Aprilaire

 I found the classes very useful and have been implementing the skills I learned. 

Brian Knapp, Public Works Supervisor, City of Waukesha.

This certificate series helped me learn how to manage and communicate with my team, especially in virtual/hybrid environments. It also helped me learn different leading styles (coaching, mentoring and managing) and how to plan and implement difficult conversations successfully. It also helped me recognize areas of strength and areas of improvement, so I can be more self-aware and mindful.
