Of everything that the Carlson Consulting Enterprise offers, the most memorable outcome of the experience was personal development. I had the opportunity to be a team lead and help my peers work together to create recommendations with real impacts on our client.  Working with my team to help them understand the direction of our project was challenging and rewarding.

Of all the skills I learned in the process I think structured problem solving was the most valuable. I think it's difficult to pinpoint what you should solve. My time in the Consulting Enterprise has shown me what to solve and how to solve it. Structured problem solving will be a big part of skillset going forward.

Starting in the Summer of 2015 I will be joining Carlisle Companies in their Rotational Leadership Development Program. I will be engaging in 3-month projects across all of the company's business units for the first year. I will be moving with my little family every three months.
