So my next educational endeavor has been decided. There is a program here on the Island called Journey to Leadership. A former boss highly suggested I go through the program and told me to see him for a letter of recommendation when I sign up. Unfortunately, there are no upcoming sessions yet, but the training office will send out info on it when it is available. Anyhow, I asked my current boss (Boss #2) if that is a program that would be worth my time given I already have a master's degree in the same topic. She said yes and no. She said a lot of it will be repetition of what I learned at St. Ambrose, but she said the experience that comes from the job shadowing and the 30 day training portion will be greatly beneficial to my future on the Island. She said I need to go.
So... that's what I plan to do... It's all done "on Island" so I won't have to travel and it's done during duty hours, so I won't have to lose any time with family, which is awesome. I guess it contains masters level course work, so it'll be challenging too. It'd be so cool to add it to my resume.
