Leadership. . . what is it and do I have it? Webster defines the term "lead" as, "to show the way, or direct the course of by going before, to conduct and to guide". Leadership Shiawassee exemplifies this definition and provides a mechanism to develop and enhance the skills and knowledge necessary for today's leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow's workplace and community. Good leaders know the importance of lifelong learning and networking. Leadership Shiawassee provides both by connecting you with emerging and established leaders who will provide their expertise to the program. These community leaders represent business, education, healthcare, government and human service sectors.
Leadership Shiawassee is a nine-month program, meeting monthly at a variety of locations. Our home base will be Baker College of Owosso with other locations and field trips to be announced. You will learn leadership principles, skill sets and how to apply them to your career and community service. The total program runs from September to May each year..
Candidates for the program are present or emerging leaders from the Shiawassee area's diverse community. To qualify, a candidate must have demonstrated leadership qualities in his or her profession and/or community and a willingness to contribute to the community's future.
Each year up to 24 individuals will be selected for the program. Candidates may enroll themselves or be sponsored by their employer, a community organization, or other recognized agency. New Graduates will join an elite and highly recognized group of over 307 leaders who have completed the Leadership Shiawassee Program since its founding in 1996. These leaders have advanced their careers, accepted leadership roles in area boards and organizations and emerged as respected competent leaders in our community.
