Leadership Connect

Leadership Connect is a comprehensive Community Leadership Program that contains two components:

Community Awareness
The class will explore seven different areas of the community and learn how they connect with one another. Each month the class will be meeting at various locations throughout the area. The participants will finish with a comprehensive understanding of the community.

Personal Leadership Development
The participants will receive over 30 hours of leadership skill training. Each month a segment of the day will be spent on personal development.

Some of the skill sets that will be covered in the program are:

  • Understanding your leadership style
  • Teamwork
  • Problem Solving
  • Decision Making
  • Managing Conflict
  • Communication

Benefits for Class Members

Class members establish a strong foundation by gaining an understanding of their own leadership style and the style of fellow classmates. They solidify that foundation through a series of in-depth learning opportunities, which bring them face-to-face with local issues that will have an impact on their future.

Benefits for Organizations

Organizations that support Leadership Connect gain employees who are more resourceful and better prepared for change. They are able to apply skills that allow them to lead more effectively, enhancing their contribution to the organization and improving the quality of life in Northwest Ottawa County.
