Leadership Kenosha — February 2019

“You either lead by example or you don’t lead at all” 

With picturesque décor and neat and tidy spaces, Uline welcomed our Leadership Kenosha team to their beautiful corporate building. Matt Thomas, the Cash Applications Manager, gave us a warm welcome and prefaced our day with a further understanding of Uline’s operations and company model. Touring the corporate building gave us a closer look into their facilities and amenities for employees. Uline is certainly a leader in its industry of distribution and customer service, so it made total sense to have them host our group on this day.

To further understand the underlying theme of the day, our colleagues Natasha, Teresa, and Vicky did a great job recapping the chapter of this month’s reading. We also learned about mentimeter, a helpful online tool that can generate group input via questions and tabulating the responses in bar graphs for comparison. A takeaway for me from this session included a reflection of my experiences in leadership and how that has helped me become the leader I am today. With that in mind, we transitioned to our panel with various representatives who elaborated on the theme of leadership and also referenced the economic aspect of our county.  (more…)
