"We thought this was a great opportunity for us to leverage Thayer Leadership as a way to become almost our Crotonville, if you will, and that's how we talk about it here. I think anyone who’s passed through West Point and gone through any of the trainings that we have, everyone writes me notes afterwards what a life-changing experience it was in so many ways. And in many cases, those classes are only a week long but it's a way for us to allow employees to really come out of their day-to-day environment, work in an environment that has an enormous amount of history, but more importantly, a tremendous amount around leadership and things we can learn. I think, for us, we want to promote from within as best we can and so we have to make sure we're creating the future leaders of the company."
— Margaret Keane, President & CEO
"If you want people to perform as if you were around, everyone needs to understand the organizational values. Leaders need to regularly communicate and reward organizational values."
