About Cyndi Wentland, B.S Education, MBA

10 things…

  1. I graduated from UW Madison because my parents met there while working in the catering department at the Memorial Union.  My siblings and I were strongly advised to attend (aka this was not optional).
  2. I score extremely high in endurance and determination.  Which has created a life of my dreams and adds value to the organizations and those I work with….and (despite back surgery and surgery on both of my feet) has allowed me in my 50’s to run my first half marathon.
  3. I am the one who is laughing too loud in a social gathering or training session.  It can be regulated in certain settings.  I also have to monitor my language.
  4. My husband and family are my foundation.  We share values, dreams, resources and an abundance of love.
  5. I’m a great listener.  I love to pay attention and truly hear. I am a closet introvert.
  6. A personal mission of mine is to sample as many varietals of wine as I am able.  If wine is paired with cheese (especially from my beloved state of Wisconsin), I transport to nirvana.  I have high cholesterol.
  7. I’ve worked in large organizations, small non-profits, and have been a self-employed entrepreneur.  I can argue passionately for the value and benefits of all of them.
  8. My quest for learning is never-ending.  College.  Grad school.  Certifications.  Podcasts.  Webinars.  Online courses.  BOOKS.  BOOKS.  BOOKS.  My love of leadership practices, of human behavior, and of social interactions is endless.
  9. I believe that at any age, at any point, people can learn, grow and change.  I’ve dedicated my entire life to that belief.
  10. I believe that everyone deserves to work with one great leader.  And I believe that you can be that leader.  On purpose.
