The LGS program is a fantastic learning and growth opportunity for any supervisor. The curriculum provides students with a leadership ‘methodology toolbox’ to achieve more effective change management, workforce retention, and decision making, just to name a few. Most importantly, I learned about emotional intelligence, both mine and others’, and why that is important for effective leadership. This program gave me the tools I needed to be a more effective leader and helped me avoid common pitfalls as a new supervisor.

I have taken various leadership classes throughout my working career in the military, Federal Civil Service, and I can testify that this LGS class is one of the top 3 classes involving leadership that I have taken. I would suggest that this LGS class be made mandatory for all supervisors in state service. This class would improve the performance of all supervisors and benefit every State agency.
