Pleasantly surprised - the results were better than I'd expected
Surprised – I thought corporate Canada was taking this more seriously
Only surprised by just how poor the results were
Not at all surprised – I knew we still had a long way to go

What Can WCM Do for You?

"The 2014 WCM Emerging Leaders Coaching Award has been extremely rewarding. Not only has it enhanced my leadership and management skills but 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."

- Sophia Soofi, Executive Director, CIBC & 2014 Emerging Leaders Recipient
