What our learning partners had to say

The EDP presented a new opportunity, and a new challenge to learn and expand my skillset. It has served as a platform for me to make great strides in my career, and I believe it positively contributed to my recent promotion.

The EDP has reenergized my leadership style and helped me with tools to make more effective decisions. This course allowed me to get out from my comfort zone and change employment to a global firm. My key take away was understanding myself and my role in society in any leadership position.

I believe the course was an absolute mind opener; it certainly gave me insights into asking questions with a difference and phrasing the questions to get a more overall inclusive answer. Nothing stands in isolation and hence the need to understand the collective. This has helped tremendously with the startup of my own business. On a personal level, the reflection everyday has become an excellent habit and tool for me and I still practice reflection and advocate it. I really believe I came out a better version of myself after completing the EDP and I am using a lot of what was taught in my own business.

I live and work by EDP lessons and experiences. Whenever I see a shortfall in the way a manager operates in the organization that I work for, I encourage him or her to complete USB-ED’s EDP. The good thing about the EDP experience is that it does not only apply to a workplace; it is a recipe for success in life generally.
