This program shaped, sharpened and developed my leadership skills. AUA program prepares leaders including women to occupy leadership positions with confidence. Personally, the program improved my professionalism, increased my efficiency and effectiveness as a leader. As a result, I learnt that leading with the head and heart was crucial in leadership. Being people-oriented was one of the concepts that particularly intrigued me. I have emerged as self-starter who works well with others and believe in teamwork. I have come to appreciate the role leadership plays in shaping any organization and how everything “rises and falls on leadership”. Much appreciation goes to AUA Leadership Gurus and AUA family at large for grooming me to be such a leader that I am.
