Delta Dental has now put 12 executives through the Executive Leadership Program. Interestingly, graduates have independently described their participation using the words “life changing.” Indeed, there are noticeable changes in each graduate. They are more reflective, more participatory and more collaborative. The program is unique in that it captures the Jesuit traditions of discernment and service to others. These are healthy qualities for a corporation as well as personal well-being.
