Testimonials

"I have become more patient, and to listen to others solutions. I have grown to lead and have become more thoughtful of others’ ideas. I have learned to speak up and be more team oriented, instead of trying to do it all myself."

"I have become more aware of the various things others have done before me to improve our community. It made me realize that I need to contribute more myself. I am now more aware of the variety of other people’s back story and how it impacts them."

"I've grown by trying to step back, listen and process before I react. I vocalize with less bluntness with the person's quadrant in mind. The class raised my awareness of what our community has to offer and what our community needs in order to be better. I will strive to make a change in the community."

"The changes have been subtle. I think I have learned to be more inclusive. I desire more input from those around me. My speaking in front of people has improved."

"I have changed as a leader in that I know that anywhere I am, my ideas, thoughts, passions and hopes are not enough. I need others. I need to lean into others different from myself and value what they bring to the table, as it is only together that we are capable. As a person, I now can listen closer to hear what others say. I am a better listener and able to empathize with others. Awareness Washington County has improved me greatly."
