upon arrival to serve as an Executive Leader for the largest military Medical Center located outside of the continental United States, I have a Masters in OD and this was my first time experiencing what OD is about in a real way. I'm convinced that we could never measure the positive impact of the Program in any comprehensive way. The results range from the incremental to the exponential personally, professionally, and from an organizational perspective. It's all about relationships and building an environment where teams come together in an environment where they feel safe and don't feel the need to waste time and energy defending and protecting themselves from supervisors or others. You cannot fully measure the impact of the Program. You can appreciate the change in the environment and culture. I attend the graduation and exit brief for each cohort. A common sentiment expressed is that it was the best Leadership Program they had participated and that it benefited home and professional life. This is only a fraction of the benefits of the Program. I'm thankful I had the opportunity to experience and see the results firsthand and on a daily basis."
