Exploring Leadership graduates new class

This past week, our Mead & Hunt University (MHU) team held the Capstone class for our latest Exploring Leadership group. Sixteen employees from multiple office locations and disciplines became the 4th class to work through the program.

This exciting class is a popular one for employees. Participants spend several months learning about a variety of leadership and personal development topics and working with sponsors, who mentor students and help them continue their learning outside of the classroom. These sponsors were former students themselves.

“Please join me in congratulating the members of this class for all their hard work over the last few months! MHU would also like to extend a very special thank you to our sponsors for all they did to facilitate learning and growth throughout this process,” said Amy Russell, learning and development coordinator. “The class is over, but this group’s journey of self-discovery and professional development has just begun. This is an amazing group of that exemplifies what makes Mead & Hunt such a special place.”

Pat Peyton, a Middleton employee in our IT department, is one of the recent participants. “I really enjoyed getting to know others in the group – who they are, what drives them, where they struggle and where they’re powerful. This helped me better understand that asking the questions and finding a balance creates a trusting, honest working relationship.”

Pat also appreciated the dialogue between participants.

“The guidance and support of the trainers, partner and cohorts helped me turn a difficult situation into a round of open and positive conversations,” she said. “I heard where people are struggling, and what I can do to make their workflow easier.”
