Leadership CORE

Communicate. Organize. Relate. Empower.

Build the Future Leaders of Your Organization

Leadership CORE supports participants as they work to Communicate more effectively, Organize and prioritize goal-setting and strategy, Relate to others both professionally and personally, and Empower their teams to reach their highest potential.

Designed for new managers or for those striving to step into a professional leadership role, Leadership CORE will launch in the Summer of 2023. CORE will focus on the strengths and potential of the individual, highlighting the difference between management and leadership. With a curriculum presented by expert instructors and a built-in peer coaching element, participants will learn and practice vital management and leadership skills, and will work together to apply those skills to real world scenarios.
