Program Summary

A sustained 6-week training and coaching program for forensic laboratory scientists seeking to expand their individual effectiveness and influence.

Participants are guided through weekly learning modules supported by videos, articles, personal exercises, assessments, and other tools designed to facilitate personal growth and reflection.

A one-hour private coaching session is held during the final week. Two group coaching sessions with professionally facilitated conversations occur in weeks 1 and 3.

As personal growth occurs, it serves as a platform on which to build each student’s individual effectiveness and ability to make valuable contributions to her/his forensic science laboratory.
