“Another thing I was able to bring back and use immediately was the idea that failure is part of success…We say that but we don’t put it out there. When discussing a current process, making time to talk about the setbacks and roadblocks allows those of us on the executive team to say, “What resources do you need, and how do you need us to provide them?”
"The value really comes when you apply what you learned in the program to your job," says Santha. "It's very practical. Each time I take a course, I always have at least two or three key points that I can take back to my work. People can see the difference -- that you're doing things differently. Carlson has shaped my leadership."
