Julie believes that people develop new capabilities by having a growth mindset and being open to collaborating with others and learning through failures (both one’s own and from others) that lead them to the right course correction or adjustments to become better. She enjoys bringing practical exercises and real life case studies to her courses to make them as interactive as possible.
