Talk of the Town

Washington County Budget Analyst

"Every time I left the call I was inspired to work on my capstone project in order to make my organization and community a better place to live and work.  I thought the presentations were dense, yet tasteful and fun. The quizzes and games kept me interested, yet there was a lot of information to absorb. You drove the main points home - the importance of management and leadership coexisting; storytelling; and leading from anywhere in the organization."

Chloe Ross, 
Boise Strategic Initiatives Manager

"The capstone course was instrumental in the formulation of our overall strategy. Having the chance to connect with other cities facing similar challenges with a fresh perspective was very helpful and the curriculum provided tools to help consider and plan for the change management aspects of scoring and program evaluation."
