WAUSAU — Another group of Wausau area business people has completed the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce’s nine-month Leadership Excellence program.

Graduates were recognized at a ceremony in Wausau on May 8.

“It’s been the privilege of a lifetime serving all of the nearly 500 participants of the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Excellence Program these last fourteen years,” said Ray Mickevicius, who has led the program since 2004. “This year’s participants, now graduates, have shown remarkable consistency with all of their now-fellow graduates since the beginning of the program: they are eager, willing and ready to lead in their organizations and in their community. And their organizations and their community should expect nothing less of them.”

These 37 graduates were recognized at the ceremony: Brian Bailey, Colin Blair, Ross Bodenheimer, Kailie Boehm, Beth Brinkmann, Mike Buss, Keri Anne Connaughty, Dylan Cromell, Ryan Dallman, Bill Dittman, Jeff Fochs, John Gardner, Alison Hafeman, Diane Hanson, Connie Heidemann, Mike Jost, Bruce Kraimer, Carol Langbehn, Brian Meliska, Joshua Moen, Jared Morris, Brian Otten, Daniel Peters, Jordan Phelps, Jen Powers, Ben Punke, Thomas Ress, Chuck Richards, Michael Rosenthal, Heather Sahr, Jessica Scharfenberg, Duke Schlagenhaft, Bonnie Stange, Brad Weiler, Nicole Williams, Erin Witucki and Lynn Yaeger.

The Leadership Excellence program was designed to improve the ability of those enrolled to manage change, create synergistic teams and uncover positive solutions.

The Chamber will offer a new leadership program beginning in the fall of 2019. Transformational Leadership will be led by program designer and facilitator Bridget Wenman, president of Perspectives Training and Consulting. The program will include nine sessions totaling more than 70 hours of interactive learning and opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.

Registration for the 2019-2020 Transformational Leadership program is now open. The first in the series of monthly sessions will be held on Sept. 6. For more information on the program, visit WausauChamber.com or contact Sharon Baumann at 715-848-5943 or sbaumann@wausauchamber.com.
