My experience at the Leadership Institute was just great. Before the program, I lived in Lowell but didn't know much about my community. The program let me know so much about the city of Lowell and Lawrence and the resources therein. I now perceive people differently in a positive way. The Leadership Institute has equipped and empowered me to be more involved in my community. I met and made great friends in my class.

Great leadership requires self-awareness and purpose. The Leadership Institute can help anyone learn more about themselves and their capabilities as a leader. The energy and commitment generated by the group dynamic crystallizes purpose in a powerful way. These elements come together in this experience to create the inspiration leaders need to make positive change in their organizations and communities.

What helped enhanced my experience in the Institute was the people. The Institute created this setting where it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from or the status of your career, but a place where we as people of a community came together to discuss and debate about topics that really matter. The Institute created a lens where I can see myself fit in my own community, and contribute more through my growing network and my new commitments to lead.

Enterprise Bank is proud to have two Institute graduates who both rave about the contacts they have made and the way the program has broadened their view of Lowell and Lawrence. They are now more confident to take leadership roles in the bank and in the community which fits in perfectly with the mission of the Bank.
