You may find it empowering to share what you are learning and accomplishing in the program with your boss and colleagues. Remember, you are the lucky one to have a coach to work with and to be surrounded by selected participant leaders, so share what you gain with others. You alone must do it, but you don’t do it alone. Be a true partner. Your boss may offer to pay for the program – we hope that’s the case! And then, your boss may want to do the next program and/or identify others for future programs.
