In the beginning, I feel I didn’t have much of a defined path in my career, but that gradually shifted and changed as our sessions progressed. I appreciate the tools you gave me to help me become a better leader and team contributor. I am excited to continue using these tools and share them with my own team. I look forward to our growth here."
