Director of Client Services
"The Leadership workshop reminds us that everyone has the power to be an influential leader, mentor, colleague, and friend.  Working together in a small cohort of like-minded individuals is crucial to building confidence and an important first step toward an engaging experience in building a community here at Chapman." 
Director of University Events
"I participated in the Leadership Workshop and truly enjoyed the experience. It is rare to have dedicated time to connect with colleagues across campus and discuss leadership values while strengthening friendships. A big thank you to the Leadership Development team for their hard work in producing this workshop!"
Director of Accounts Payable
"The Leadership Development workshop was very engaging, equips leaders with essential skills and techniques you need to look at challenges from a different perspective. It also allowed me to work with various employees in different departments, which promoted cohesiveness, teamwork, and sense of belonging."
Director of Purchasing
"The Genuine, Individualized Care workshop is arguably one of the best sessions I have taken during my (almost) four decades at CU. I believe all CU staff members should take this. Indeed, my outlook on the "work-life balance" would have been plausibly impacted, and I probably would have performed much better at work and in life in general."
