I have completed the pre-requisites to achieve my Standing TALL tag. This is hands down the best program I have attended on personal accountability. While the words in my e-mail signature may be just that, words, the simple task of putting down on paper what is taken for granted was more challenging than I realized. I have attended different programs that literally dance around the final and necessary step that the Standing Tall program requires… Write it down, display it and most importantly, Live it. I have these displayed above my desk alongside my degree because these two pieces of paper signify a personal conquest that I overcame and could not be more proud of my accomplishment.
Thank you for a wonderful program and I look forward every day to living my code.
