Each letter in the program title represents a significant part of leadership.

Learn—leaders must be life‐long learners, continually gaining new knowledge and skills.

Engage—leaders must be involved in their work and create an environment where others can focus their attention and interest.

Advance—leaders are catalysts for professional development who promote the mission and vision of the organization.

Direct—leaders organize and energize processes and people, and empower others to share responsibilities and successes.

Why Should You Attend?

Whether you are an employee considering attending the LEAD Program, or an employer interested in sending one or more employees, LEAD is designed:

• To increase leadership capacity

• To develop effective leadership style, strengths and skills

• To apply leadership in your work, community, or volunteer position

• To support a “community of leaders,” as well as “leaders for our communities”

What do past participants say about LEAD?
