What people are saying about Awareness Washington County

 
"This class has made me a better leader and person because of the tools I have picked up to help me in my journey. The skills I have learned will stay with me forever. I have gained a new confidence in being a servant leader!"
"I have learned to look at things from others' point of view. I have learned that my opinions matter & need to be shared. I have learned that it is ok to not be extremely lower right, & I am not always right."
"People do become greater and receive encouragement from what I share and think from me sharing my life story with them."
"I have changed as a person and a leader as a result of this program. I am a little more outspoken, when it comes to ideas, thoughts or concerns that I may not understand. I am more open to new ideas. I am more comfortable speaking in front of people now than when I started."
"I've grown by trying to step back, listen and process before I react. I vocalize with less bluntness with the person's quadrant in mind. The class raised my awareness of what our community has to offer and what our community needs in order to be better. I will strive to make a change in the community."
"I have learned to listen to others first. I have learned to work for the cause and not myself, after all, it's not about me, it's about us!!"
"I live each day feeling drained. My job is stressful and all-consuming. I want to do more than eat, sleep, and work. Awareness Washington County has given me back my passion and drive for this community. It has reignited my flame for servant leadership, and I'm so excited to share my light."
"I have learned new skills that have helped me grow in all areas of my life. I feel like I'm better equipped to accept people for their own style, and I have learned ways to "stretch" myself in order to be more open to all people. I feel like I've also gained confidence by being a participant in this class. Thank you Awareness Wash. Co. for everything you do!"
"The class allowed me to step out in a new community & get involved in different areas to better Washington Co."
"I have changed as a leader in that I know that anywhere I am, my ideas, thoughts, passions and hopes are not enough. I need others. I need to lean into others different from myself and value what they bring to the table, as it is only together that we are capable. As a person, I now can listen closer to hear what others say. I am a better listener and able to empathize with others. Awareness Washington County has improved me greatly."
"I feel like I am starting to open up and talk a little more in front of people. I've had a lot of positive encouragement on this and made a lot of wonderful friends!"
"I have changed my perspective of other individuals by seeing their learning styles as capabilities instead of crutches. My classroom has adapted to the ideas presented in the class and for that we have all grown (I as the teacher, and the class as the learners) This class made me grow wiser of communicating with my peers. I can see wheels turning instead of blank stares! Yay!"
"The changes have been subtle. I think I have learned to be more inclusive. I desire more input from those around me. My speaking in front of people has improved."
