– Anne-Paige Darby, Marsh & McLennan Agency
CONFLICT RESOLUTION TRAINING
“I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Batten Leadership Institute. One of my goals was to strengthen my skills on satisfactorily resolving conflict. Not only was I successful in achieving that goal, but through observations gained from the testing profiles I was able to better articulate a clear vision of my goals and aspirations within my organization. I plan to use what I have learned to help to make a difference in the success of my organization and to successfully coach others.”
– Carol Tuning, human services coordinator, City of Roanoke
