“The tools that I learned from the M4S program and the support of my peer circle has helped me to understand my management style. I am better equipped with an understanding of working styles, the importance of giving clear instructions and feedback. This is especially important leading a small team that is responsible for relationship building in a large organization across a variety of sectors.”Olumide O.

Michelle Smith-Howard, 2014 Management Fellow

“The Managing for Success program allowed me to step back and take a deep look at myself in the context of my work.  By having a better understanding of how my personality translates to my management style, I have been able to be more intentional in how I approach leadership.  The Managing for Success program helped me to develop key management skills, to include building relationships, having crucial conversations, and results-based facilitation of meetings.  The mentoring and coaching that are integrated into the program provides for a robust experience and allows for an organic network of support to be created amongst participants.”Michelle Smith-Howard, Ed.S. Director, Early Childhood Development and Intervention, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington
