Pest Control Company Invests in Leadership Training

The Cingo Vision Builders program has twelve new graduates. The primary goal of this leadership class is for team members to develop and enhance skills to be used in both professional roles and personal lives. The program began in 2009 and has proven to be a great asset for the Cingo team.

Business coach Tim Fulton took the lead on this year's program. Tim is owner of Small Business Matters, is Lanny Allgood's Vistage chair and has played a huge part in the professional development of Cingo in the past few years. This year's program kicked off in May. It was composed of three day-long sessions that included topics such as leadership in the 21st century, making better decisions, financial management and having "fierce conversation."

Cingo team members were selected based on individual applications and recommendations by their immediate supervisors. A selection committee thoroughly reviewed each candidate application and extended 12 invitations. The 2017 Vision Builders leadership class graduates include the following individuals:

  • Stuart Beasley - Savannah
  • Shawn Brantley - Augusta
  • Mandy Garnto - Customer Care Center
  • Rena Hackle - Support
  • Shane Henry - Augusta
  • Billy Hughes - South Georgia
  • Henry Lamb - Middle Georgia
  • Chris Landing - Middle Georgia
  • Nelson Pitts - Savannah
  • Rocky Thomas - Augusta
  • Jeffrey Williams - Support
  • Brian Zbierski - Charleston

"I had the opportunity to sit in during most of the sessions and am truly impressed by the quality of this class. It's great to see the initiative and effort that everyone puts in to make this a personal learning experience," said Bill Ballard, program director.

Mandy Garnto, a member of the Customer Care Center stated about the class, "The 2017 Vision Builders class provided me the opportunity to look at myself and my behaviors in a different light. Tim Fulton's insight into leadership styles, motivation, and how to be a team player has helped me not only here at work, but in other aspects of my day-to-day life. I plan to use the valuable tools he provided to be a better employee, sharpen my leadership skills and support my co-workers to the best of my abilities."
