My time and Peabody and in the Leadership and Organizational Performance (LOP) program shaped me as a person and the vision for SchermCo. My colleagues in the program were diverse leaders in all ways - culture, race, work experience and more. Having such a unique blend of diversity and passions allowed us to explore critical issues in leading people and top-performing organizations. Further, the LOP program did a remarkable job balancing theory and practical advice - while encouraging us to test ideas and collect feedback in real time. This framework and the guidance to get our hands dirty really pushed us to take the leap from ideas to implementation. Studying such important issues at Peabody from performance analytics to innovation management provided a really unique graduate experience that helped me launch our organization and serve others working to improve public education. I'd put the LOP program and my experience up against any in the country.
