Employees Gain New Perspective on Leadership Through Training

21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

Amy Twellmann (standing) leads employees into interactive group sessions during the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership training on April 15.

An ambitious group of maintenance employees embraced an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills through a two-day training course last week. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership course provides employees with lessons on how to increase effectiveness, gain influence and identify unknown weaknesses.

The leadership course is offered as part of the Maintenance Leadership Academy. It provides in depth lessons about how practicing the 21 specific laws of leadership leads to personal and organizational success.

“This training helps employees identify their strengths and weaknesses. It helps them realize what areas they need improvement in, while also showing them what they are extremely good at as well. At the end of the training, I received a lot of positive feedback about how the class really helped them,” said Amy Twellmann, assistant district maintenance engineer.

The second half of the training will continue in June. Some employees have already expressed their eagerness to complete the course.

“I found this training class to be extremely beneficial and I truly enjoyed the group discussions. It gave me a much better understanding of leadership as a whole. I look forward to implementing the valuable lessons that I have learned from this training into my career here at MoDOT,” said Bennetez Meeks, senior maintenance technician.


District Blood Drive Helps Save Lives

Margaret Bruns donates at SL District Blood Drive

Margaret Bruns donates blood at the MS Valley Regional Blood drive held in front of the district office on April 15.

Thanks to the generosity of some St. Louis employees, more than 60
lives will be saved throughout the region. The district blood drive, held earlier this month, collected 22 lifesaving units of blood for patients in
the area.

Everyday blood bank supplies fluctuate and the need for donations are consistent. The St. Louis district takes great pride in helping out the community when in need and will continue to host blood drives bi-annually.

The district’s next blood drive is scheduled in the fall of this year.
