Doyon Welcomes 2017 DLT Participants
Doyon Leadership Training participants stand with facilitators, Nina Heyano and Tracy Snow, before their introduction to Doyon.
Doyon welcomes 2017 Doyon Leadership Training (DLT) participants: Marilyn Andon, Ellen Evans, Skar Sato, Rachel Saylor, Desiree B. Joseph, Melissa Kookesh, Cory Dobbins, Elisha Davis, Arnel Sargento, Larissa Sommer, Deanna Fitzgerald, Janelle Huntington, Maudrey Kriska and Tillila Beetus.
DLT is a 10-month, intensive, application-based program open to shareholders and Doyon Family of Companies’ employees. The program aims to build leaders among Doyon shareholders and those who are working for Doyon.
This year’s 14 participants began their 10-month journey with an introductory tour of the Doyon Plaza, insight into a senior manager’s career history and experience at Doyon, as well as leadership perspectives and tips from a panel of Doyon leaders.
“After being encouraged to apply for many years, I am thrilled to have been chosen to attend DLT this year. I’ve heard this unique experience is life changing and I am jumping into this opportunity whole heartedly,” stated Doyon shareholder and Doyon, Limited administrative coordinator, Tillila Beetus, who is a 2017 participant.
Many shareholders and employees do not get accepted the first time they apply to the program, but are encouraged to keep applying. Each application must receive a minimum amount of points as defined by the selection committee in order to be accepted into the program.
Doyon, Limited covers the training cost, airfare and lodging for participants who are not from Fairbanks to attend. The time commitment and any remaining travel cost is the responsibility of each participant.
“I don’t know of anyone who has participated in the program that regrets the time, energy and cost that goes into it. I have seen participants in my class who have completely changed their lives and perspectives from what was learned in the training. The experience itself is invaluable,” stated 2016 participant, Lessa Peter.
