I’ve reshaped my thinking…

I started Betty’s online leadership training course at the very beginning of the pandemic.  I used the information and resources as soon as I consumed them! This is a unique course, unlike any I have taken, and it helped me reshape my thinking about what it means to be a good in-person, remote, and now hybrid boss!
