"LMC is truly an experience I'll always remember from the friendships I've gained, partnerships I've established, and the endless opportunities to connect with the community. Each time we meet, it reminds me to practice mindfulness, get to know my neighbors and see all the things happening within the county."

Class of 2005

"Leadership Medina County has provided for me and my colleagues that have gone through the program more awareness that in the workplace, there are many different personalities and how to work together despite the differences.  In order to develop a good and productive team, whether working on a project or interacting one-on-one, we must realize each person’s strength (and weaknesses) and best utilize their strengths.  This results in not only a harmonious work environment and a positive business relationship,  but also allows the manager to encourage and support their subordinates and possibly mentor them as future leaders as well."
