Dacotah Bank Celebrates the Graduation of the Third Class of The Academy

Dacotah Bank — (Aberdeen, S.D.) — Robert Fouberg, president and CEO, and members of management are excited to announce the graduation of the third class of The Academy. The Academy was developed to prepare individuals for future leadership roles in conjunction with succession planning.
Through a partnership with talent management and MDA Leadership, a leadership consulting firm from Minneapolis, Minnesota, the participants completed their journey through individual development, leadership skill-building, teamwork and Action Learning Projects. The Action Learning Projects were drawn from Dacotah Bank’s strategic planning efforts and three teams of seven participants developed viable solutions. The teams presented the projects to management on October 26 and thereafter received graduation certificates.
Fouberg stated, “I am very proud of each of the Academy graduates, Dacotah Bank’s future leaders. The time invested by the participants, their executive sponsors and the talent management team will provide financial and performance rewards long into the future. The results of their project work and the discovery of new ideas have already reaffirmed that Dacotah Bank is an employer of choice and dedicated to remaining independent and viable in the Dacotah Territory.”
