We kicked off the last Downtown Leadership Club (DLC) meeting of the school year by celebrating and sharing our experiences and interactions with student ambassadors during our recent school tours. Employees who work in the Administration Building, Transportation and Operations Support Center were encouraged to go on a student-led tour in April. Many of my peers were excited to share what they observed on those tours.
Everyone at the meeting was then encouraged to share how they live the values in their everyday work and what effect they hope living the values has on our district. We also shared our honest feedback on the Downtown Leadership Club meetings – what do we find valuable? What should change? We will use your feedback to help these meetings evolve.
My favorite part of the DLC meetings are the shoutouts. We take the time to recognize our peers who live one or more of our organization's values: character, collaboration, communication and continuous improvement.
