My MPOD Story

MPOD for me was a really unique experience! I was especially intrigued by the work of both David Cooperrider and Richard Boyatzis – their research inspired me to create my own model for Leadership Development while in the program. In addition, I enjoyed meeting Jeremy Hunter and learning directly from him about his approach to teaching Mindfulness. Through MPOD I also had the pleasure of connecting with Jackie Stevenson and participating in her amazing Experiential Learning with Horses Professional Practitioner Certificate Program. I think that MPOD was a good fit for me because I have passions and interests in both business and wellness – the program helped me to clarify some of my own thoughts around bringing those two concepts together in organizational settings to increase leadership effectiveness and enhance well-being.
