Testimonials of Graduates from the Leadership Development Program

“I feel very honored to be one of the selected students in Class 2018 of the CPAC-TD leadership program.  I have learned to use the DISC model to understand myself and others’ strength & challenges; practiced relationship management strategies and applied DMAIC Model to solve problems. Also, I’ve learned how to build relationship, develop Self-Awareness and use Lester Model and ASBI Model to receive and provide feedbacks. These practices and strategies are hallmarks of a good manager in North America. After the training, I have become knowledgeable in many areas where I had lots of confusions before the training.  A significant change in my understanding of how to be a good leader is that applying the tools and processes I have learned from this program to my daily work is the essential first step.

A big thank-you to CPAC and the sponsor TD Canada Trust from all students of Class 2018. Thank you so much for the great training and the opportunity for us to become better leaders. “ (Pingping W)

“CPAC leadership program has been one of the most enjoyable and valuable courses I have taken in a long time. The program consists of 6 days of concise leadership/ management training seminars on weekends, with 2 months of mentorship and ongoing alumni networking activities afterwards. The instructors are top-notch and knowledgeable experts in the areas. Classmates are professionals with impressive backgrounds and fun to work with. Staffs are supportive and helpful. I make a lot of new friends through the program. The environment is friendly and safe for us to develop our leadership skills. I already feel inspired after the seminars, and I am looking forward to growth in the long run. I will definitely recommend my friends and relatives to join the program.” (Eric T)

“Participation in the CPAC Leadership Development program has been proven to be a wise decision. The content rich six sessions delivered by accredited speakers and coachers widened my view and equipped me with practical tools to apply in daily workplace and personal life. Meanwhile, I was also amazed by the quality of participants in this program and enjoyed every moment spent there.” (Amelia Li)

“I highly recommend the CPAC Leadership Development Program because it not only addresses the common challenges faced by all career-oriented professionals but also provides meaningful tools and systematic approaches to tackle the challenges. All workshops are led by expert instructors who brought highly valuable insights from their own professional experiences. Plus, with the help from the sponsor (TD), the cost of the program compared to other professional associations or network event I attended, is surprisingly affordable at this quality level. It was also a great opportunity to expand my professional network and make friends. In a word, with my view, it’s one of the most cost-effective programs delivered by CPAC and it truly benefits the community in a long run.  Last but not the least, I have to say “thank you” to all the like-minded classmates, volunteers and snack sponsors. Without you, the workshop could never be the same. And of course, thank you, Lily, for all the efforts and time you’ve put in to this program.” (Joyce R)
