The foundation of the Mandt System is built on the principle that all human beings should be treated with dignity and respect, and that the best way to guarantee that is by building healthy relationships between all stakeholders in an organization.

Much of The Mandt System focuses on our understanding that dignity and respect are created through an organization’s culture. The context in which The Mandt System is implemented will have a great impact on the success of the relationships built there.

While we are enormously proud of the successes we hear about every day, occasionally a success story is so compelling, we feel we must share it.

One such success story has entered a new chapter of achievement for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections at its  Lincoln Hills School/Copper Lake School facility.

We have linked to a copy of a recent press release regarding this success.

Among the highlights noted in the press release:

 – In a two-year comparison of 2022 and 2023 there has been a 44% decrease in the use of
mechanical restraints, a 32% decrease in use of force incidents, and a 50% decrease in
AC placements. There has also been a reduction in workplace injuries.

– DOC has seen a dramatic improvement in the percentage of staff members who reported
fearing for their safety. In 2019, that statistic reached an all-time high of 80% of LHS
staff. In October 2023 after Mandt implementation that number fell to just 16%.

The press release also notes a dramatic improvement in organizational culture as demonstrated by the general morale and job satisfaction of school staff.

We would like to congratulate the management and staff of Lincoln Hills School/Copper Lake School. Their commitment to positive cultural change as well as understanding of the relationships they create gets all the credit for their success.
