These meticulously designed training sessions are not just foundational; they are instrumental for the personal and professional development of each crew member, acting as the driving force behind the community’s ongoing enhancement initiatives.

The participants expressed considerable appreciation for the introduction to these models, acknowledging the potential transformative impact they could wield on their respective roles and responsibilities. For many team members, it was an enlightening experience that unveiled new perspectives on leadership and teamwork.
