KLC Grant Participants
“I am glad that I had the opportunity to attend You Lead Now. I especially liked the self management messages – realizing that you have a choice to make in situations that feel stressful. I have been reflecting that as I think about all the different settings in which I could experiment with the things I learned at KLC.”
~Catherine J., SoCe Life
“Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend the KLC program, “You. Lead. Now.” It was a wonderful and transformative experience.
