    HPLA profiles - Dan Karlin

    Dan Karlin
    County Engineer

    High Performance Leadership Academy graduate

    County: Lewis and Clark County, Mont.

    Number of years in role: 5

    Don’t miss this in my county: The Falls Creek Trailhead (and Falls), The Sleeping Giant, Lewis and Clark Brewery Tap Room and many more.

    Most influential person in my career: My father. He overcame limitations and worked hard nonstop for the betterment of others. He exemplified servant leadership.

    Biggest challenge: Funding. We are always working hard to stretch a dollar as far as possible.

    Motivation for signing up for HPLA: Great insight, and for me personally, the affirmation that my pre-course thoughts on leadership closely mirrored many great leaders

    Favorite part of HPLA: Actually writing down my Rules for Leadership and Oath.

    Favorite leadership rule: From HPLA: keep written communication short and to the point. MY RULE:Communication is the glue that holds everything together. Be honest. Listen.

    My oath or motto: Show up and lead by example with humility. Clear the obstacles through communication and mutual trust so the team can achieve the common goal and their personal goals. Adjust to other people’s strengths rather than making them adjust to yours. Stay positive, and strive to never show outward anxiety or insecurity. I will be a leader I would follow.

    In my spare time: Spend time out fishing, hunting, or camping with my wife and kids.

    I’m most looking forward to: Taking off the mask.
