What do leaders say about SL?
Our recent leaders have this to say:
I've learned to think on my feet... to be more assertive.
It brought a new sense of a leader to me. Now I see a leader as a good facilitator.
After a year involved in SL, I walked out with a completely different understanding of leadership.
Several students thank [ed] me for helping them pass the course and it gave me a sense of leadership and pride that I was able to help effectively.
