Cultivating Leadership Business Award for March 2020


Education, enjoyment and inspiration are central to the mission of Flagstaff Area National Monuments. These themes are also vital to team development and growth.
This NPS team’s commitment to (1) leadership skill-building and (2) leading with strategy are exemplary. Knowing that they best serve the parks and visitors if they have a strong team rowing in the same direction together, they have engaged in team building events, a mini-leadership academy, 5-year strategic planning, and have offered various skill-building trainings to their employees (while inviting other parks to participate, as well). Thank you to the teams at Wupatki, Sunset Crater Volcano, and Walnut Canyon National Monuments  for being mission-driven, your commitment to serving us visitors to public lands as well as your role-modeling of professional development and personal growth!
