Gulf Cost Educators Federal Credit Union, Class of 2019

There is so much value in relationships and personal growth. Leadership Clear Lake provided multiple opportunities to cultivate lifelong relationships and growth on a personal and professional level. We started with a strong foundation with the insights discovery and were able to use that knowledge to build month over month. The field trips helped support what we learned and gave us an opportunity to see things in action in our community in all different aspects of education, legislative, industry, small business, nonprofit, etc. I am a better person and a better leader for having the opportunity to participate in this program. It is a community I am proud to be a part of. I am thankful to my employer for giving me that opportunity.

Leadership Clear Lake was a very engaging and diverse experience that continues to benefit me both personally and professionally. The program led me to take an introspective look into myself as an individual and provided invaluable insight into the importance of great leadership. Through personal assessments, meeting successful leaders in the community, and learning from the experiences my classmates shared-- I obtained many takeaways that I still continue to implement in my own career. I'm grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this program which helped lead me on a journey to strive to be a better leader. No matter what stage you're at in your career, Leadership Clear Lake has something to offer everyone.

Emily T. Krone & Company, PLLC, Class of 2019

Leadership Clear Lake was one of the most impactful and transformative experiences I have been through in my adult life, both professionally and personally. Beginning with the revealing Insights test results that provided a very intimate and in-depth look into who I am as a leader and person, and continuing through the fantastic "field trips" we took visiting the various industries and institutions that make up our community (legislative, military, educational, non-profit, for-profit, municipal, etc.), every meeting was worth it. I grew as a person, first and foremost, and saw this growth trickle into my becoming a better employee, a more courageous business woman, a more confident mom, and a more effective and impactful leader. I am forever grateful to my employer for sending through this program.

Working with great current leaders and future leaders of our community was enlightening in many ways. I learned that community standards and value of collaboration amongst different industries can dynamically impact the lives of people around, including jobs, pay, education etc. It was an amazing experience and learning to be a better leader can never go wrong."
