28 Jan Markon Leadership Meets with The Clearing Founder

In late January, Markon’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) had its capstone session with our learning partner, The Clearing.  Jen Vanmeter has been our primary trainer from The Clearing all year and has navigated us through many leadership principles.  This time The Clearing provided a 3 hour session with their founder, Chris MacGoff.  Chris is the author of the book, “The Primes”.  Chris began the session with the statement “Imagine a better you.” and led us down a path of leadership topics including:  setting direction, allocating resources, inspiring actions, taking responsibility, context, problem/difficulty, “the good work project”, thank you/acknowledge, and feedback.  Chris left the group inspired to become better leaders and provided multiple frameworks on how to evaluate progress.  Markon and the LDP Class of 2015 has had an outstanding journey with our partner, The Clearing, this year.  Jen, Chris, and the whole team at The Clearing have been instrumental in the success of the Leadership Development Program.
