In spring 2019, TEL contracted Metis Associates to conduct an evaluation of the implementation and preliminary outcomes for TEL's inaugural cohort. The evaluation included participant self-report surveys, participant focus groups, and review of program documentation. Overall, the evaluation found that the program was highly successful. Participants expressed strong satisfaction with the program, and self-reported outcomes were consistently positive across all areas of participants' inner and outer lives. Moreover, participants reported that many of these changes have impacted their organizations--due, in part, to changes they have put in place.
