This training was one of my greatest milestones in my career journey. I have attended leadership summits and other conferences but this one was one of a kind and it topped in my rating.The training granted me special gates to learn how I can not only be a leader but a transformational leader. I now understand the fact that empowerment of a woman is empowerment if the whole society of both men and women. And empowerment of a young person as me, is empowerment of generations of both old and young. Therefore as an empowered young woman, I am the strongest!
Today I write about the great impactful virtual transformative leadership training. I learnt a lot; more on my personal growth that directly impacts my transformation in my leadership journey. All facilitators were well equipped with knowledge and were well prepared for their presentations.Generally, I applaud the whole team who made the training possible and the great impact they left with me.
As an educator ACTIL taught me the skill of teaching from the heart. The power in telling personal stories and things people can relate to. I have realized the mode of training not just the head and hands but more importantly the heart has great power to change people's mindsets and hence their lives. For me, it transformed how I deliver education. So grateful always for the opportunity.
