Leadership Institute Class of 2020 Kick-off Session

Posted By: Kelly Veit ACEC WI News,

The Class of 2020’s began it’s journey September 12-13 in Wausau. Our first session, A/E Firm Leadership: Know Thyself Then Others, helped leaders become more self-aware and apply leadership techniques to motivate and engage others.

Industry consultant John Geddie led the group learned how to leverage their own strengths and compensate for weaknesses via the personalized DiSC assessment results. Understanding their own preferences and learning to recognize the preferences of others is key to communicating and leading effectively.

The session featured a panel of industry leaders sharing thoughts on leadership. John Kissinger, Kim Lobdell and Randy Van Natta shared leadership insights and lessons learned with the class. Hearing from current leaders brought the points to life.

In addition to learning from our presenter and panelists, Class Advisor Stan Sugden, Ruekert/Mielke, attends each session to provide real-world insights and serves as a resource throughout the course of the program. Participants also learn from each other as we share our own insights and work with accountability partners to set and reach goals.
We’re looking forward to working with the Class of the 2020 throughout the program and beyond!
