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.
Morris Taylor • Department of General Services • LGS Cohort 4 Alumni
I truly enjoyed the course materials and the class
dynamic. The concepts taught would be highly beneficial to
any first-time supervisor or upper-level manager. I look
forward to utilizing the skills I’ve learned in this course
throughout my supervisory career.

The LGS program is an excellent program, the instructors
are well prepared, materials were appropriate, and the pace was
good. I strongly recommend that all supervisors and
managers take this program to learn the tools needed to become
better leaders in the workplace.

This class has been thought-provoking and has challenged my
professional motivation. It’s given me many tools that I can use
and want to share with my employees.
