Human Resources Director Completes Advanced Training

Posted 6/30/2015

Grace Lutheran Foundation is proud to honor Human Resources Director Bryan Bessa for completing the Leading Age Wisconsin I-LEAD program. The program is designed to help train future leaders in the senior care industry in Wisconsin.

“I’m honored to have been chosen to participate in the program and thrilled to bring back the skills I learned to all of our great employees at Grace Lutheran Foundation,” Bessa said.

The I-LEAD program stands for learn, empower, achieve and deliver. After many months of work, studying and face-to-face group projects, the few leaders chosen for the program developed new skills in a broad range of subjects such as diversity, leadership, motivation, mentoring, learning styles and collaboration.

Mike Christensen, Grace Lutheran Foundation’s C.E.O. said, “We are grateful for leaders like Bryan Bessa who desire to continue their education which will directly benefit our friends and neighbors who we take care of on a daily basis, as well as our valued staff members throughout the organization.”

Grace Lutheran Communities consists of Syverson Lutheran Home, Grace Edgewood assisted living, Grace Willowbrook assisted living, Grace Woodlands memory care, Grace Barstow and Parkside apartments, Grace School-Age Childcare and Grace Adult Day Services in both Chippewa Falls and Altoona.

Grace Lutheran Foundation has been helping its friends and neighbors in communities all over the Chippewa Valley since 1966. The non-profit organization specializes in rehabilitation, assisted living, skilled nursing, child care, independent living and adult day services. The foundation also manages senior care facilities for American Lutheran Homes and First Lutheran Foundation.
