LEAD is a 3-session program where participants hone their collaborative leadership skills to become more effective community leaders.


Through a combination of workshops, discussions, and case studies, participants will develop skills and learn strategies related to building a team, stakeholder analysis, conflict management, and other topics focused on collaborative community leadership.


These skills are important to employers because not only will your employees be representing your company’s name when they are out working in the community, but they will also bring those refined skills and relationships back into their work life.

For Participants

LEAD is important because it teaches the professionalized, soft skills that you are oftentimes asked to use without being taught how to use them.

For instance: you may be asked to chair a committee and given a task to complete, but you’re not taught that the success of the project relies on getting the committee members to work collaboratively. Some people seem to be natural at such tasks, but in truth these are skills that can be learned, practiced, and refined.

LEAD unpacks what those skills are, and teaches you how to use them in collaborative settings.
