LEADERBRIDGE TESTIMONIALS

Woldeab, Rafael - Copy.jpg

The first couple of months in my new role felt daunting and I experienced imposter syndrome. However, thanks to the Certificate Program, I learned that some of the challenges I had been facing were challenges that other executive directors 5-10 years into their roles were still facing. I feel more confident now as a result of the Certificate Program.
