What do our graduates have to say?

“FLiC taught me the importance of relationship building and how it directly impacts the work environment as well as the job at hand.”

“When I first came to this program I thought it was going to be about how to manage people. I quickly found out that it is more about learning who I am. What are my strengths, weaknesses and areas that I need to work on? You need to work on yourself before you can effectively lead others.”
