Training Participant

"For someone like me who was relatively new to the organization, the UFIT Leadership Cohort provided me with a timely opportunity to create a rapport with my colleagues across UFIT and significantly helped me to create my UFIT network that has assisted me in my day to day work to assist our constituents more efficiently and effectively. Additionally the presence and advice of our CIO during some of these sessions helped reinforce the CIO’s direction for example, stressing on taking responsibility and eliminating “Gator Bounce” for our constituents even if I was not the right person to assist the constituent – and I have found that it culminates with a happy constituent with a great user experience."
