“When I went back to work after TEP, I was more mindful as a leader in how I interacted with colleagues with the understanding that they may be dealing with hard things that I was not aware of. I was able to have more constructive conversations and have always sought to put the person at the center of my leadership approach.”
“TEP really covers all aspects of development – ethical, business strategy, physical. The faculty model leadership because almost all of them have worked in the private sector or do some consulting. The way in which they conduct classes, they’re not just teaching a case study and saying this is how you do it – they’re modeling it in the way they teach.”
“If you are serious about capacity building and developing leaders who can take your company to the next level, TEP will open your leaders’ minds and help them look at things differently. You will walk away with a new and innovative perspective to improve your professional life and the state of your organization.”
