"I liked how the Supervisory Skills Program sessions were only four hours long, so I could spend part of the day on training and part on work. The program was a great place for networking--a place to share common interests in leadership. Another great benefit was hearing from those in other industries and hearing about the challenges they face. Sometimes the problems you're trying to solve have already been solved elsewhere. By listening to others, you gain a much better understanding of leadership."

Jack Miller, system administrator, City of Napa
