Attended: Smith College Leadership Consortium

“In my company, Johnson & Johnson, the Smith Leadership Consortium is a very prestigious program. It’s a focused Women’s Leadership program, and the participants have a very diversified background. That’s what makes the Smith program really different from other leadership programs I have attended. The curriculum, passionate faculty and learning environment are all very impressive and top class. The experience at the program had an immediate impact on my work when I introduced the StrengthsFinder 2.0 exercise to my team. I have also adopted some learning in real life after the course, such as self-reflection and paying attention to myself – I have even started the daily walking at 10,000 steps. I believe this is the best program for women leaders. It inspires you, makes you more confident and builds your network.”
