Testimonials:
I would strongly recommend Leadership in the 21st Century for any professional looking to hone in on their personal leadership style, as leadership comes in all different forms. Not only is Paulette a great leader and coach, the program helps you to take a serious look at what qualities define a true leader, and helps you to realize that EVERYONE has the potential for great leadership! You did deep, you get personal and you walk away with not only having forged a great bond with your cohort, but also a renewed desire to begin zoning in on your GREAT leadership qualities.” - Gamble Hayden, State and Federal Communications, Winter 2017 Participant

The Transformational Leadership Program has provided me the ability to grow further both professionally and personally.  Through resources and tools provided in the course, such as the 360 survey, participants have had the opportunity to learn more about themselves and areas in which we can improve.  Paulette provides an atmosphere for women to be able to openly discuss areas impacting all the participants --- and fosters a great setting for sharing ideas.  This course has been well worth my time, and I look forward to continuing to participate in WGR offerings.”
