Leadership Studio Bike Challenge

The Ceco Leadership Studio participants recently competed in an internal challenge when two teams squared off to see how many bikes they could assemble for foster children who are part of the Jackson County CASA program in Kansas City, MO. The two teams used the community outreach event to build their team strength as well as work to overcome “management challenges” the trainers put in the mix during the event. Instead of going on a group outing, the funds set aside for the training were used to purchase the bikes.

Angie Blumel and her CASA staff provide the ages and and genders of the children in need, and our Leadership Studio — made up of Ceco Regional Managers, Senior Engineers, Senior Sales Executives, Senior Project Managers, Operations and Field General Supervision — went to work. Two members from Human Resources conducted quality control on the assembled bikes, and the Training Team developed and organized the team-building event.

The two teams assembled the bikes in just over two hours. Team “Noel-It-All” beat team “Roaring Chestnuts” in completed bikes and quality inspections. CASA is delivering the bikes to 20 foster children all over Kansas City. It was a great community outreach event, and both teams were happy and excited to be a part of it.
