"The 2014 WCM Emerging Leaders Coaching Award has been extremely rewarding. Not only has it enhanced my leadership and management skills, but it also demanded more intentional thought on how best to leverage my key competencies and bridge the gaps. I was able to focus on how to best elevate the value that I can bring to my organization, continue to cultivate new development opportunities and reach some important milestones in my career."
