The Solution: During travels in Kigali, Rwanda, trained 25 scholars in the Bridge2Rwanda program on servant leadership and how to leverage their natural strengths and talents using the Gallup Strengthsfinder assessment.

The Outcome: The students of the scholars program were some of the best participants that I’ve had the pleasure to train.
