On Tuesday, March 28, founders and leaders of growth-stage companies in Chicago are invited to an Open House to learn about The Junto Institute's Apprenticeship program.
We're pleased to share the video from JuntoNight 2016, the graduation event for the JuntoIV cohort. In the video, thoughts and soundbites from the CEOs of the six companies - Arrow Payments, Cristaux, Link Capital, Red Caffeine, ReviewTrackers, and Schlep - are featured along with opening remarks from alumni who moderated the panel discussion.
We have something unique and special at The Junto Institute: nearly 50 Alumni who have been members of a JuntoForum over the past four years. Through the Forum experience, these company leaders have learned, practiced, and developed new skills and habits rooted in emotional intelligence, many of which have led to positive behavioral change in their lives and workplaces.
The JuntoTeam’s weekly huddles aren’t just quick meetings to update each other on our work, they are a safe space for us to be who we are and share anything that is on our minds. We express love for the business, love for the self, and love for each other.
Our team huddles take place every Monday morning at 9:30am. The agenda and flow is as follows:
Last year, I read a book that deeply affected me: How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness, by Russell Roberts. It's a book about an economist by an economist but - as you can tell by the title - it has nothing to do with economics.
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” - Voltaire
After every Junto Forum session, Tutoring Roundtable, and Mentor Team Meeting we close the experience with a round of appreciations. Everyone in the room has the opportunity to share something they appreciate, and since the prompt is a general one, anything goes.
The Junto Institute invites the founders and leaders of growth-stage companies to the following events next month.
Last week marked the culmination of Junto's fourth cohort, celebrated by our annual JuntoNight event. The evening featured a panel of founders and leaders from the six companies - five of them CEOs and the other a COO. Below is a summary of their reflections and shared experiences from their company's participation in Junto's Apprenticeship program.
Our fourth cohort completed its Apprenticeship experience last week, culminating in JuntoNight, where we celebrate their achievement. Over 200 people were in attendance at the energetic and emotion-filled event which honored six graduating companies: Arrow Payments, Cristaux, Link Capital, Red Caffeine, ReviewTrackers, and Schlep.
