Sixteen nonprofit, government, and education leaders representing fifteen organizations wrapped up the 2021 Leadership Institute hosted by the Community Foundation feeling empowered to tackle the new year. Here are some quotes from attendees:

“There were many lessons in the course which have shaped my development as a leader. Managing conflict and communication styles were some of the best.”

“It was a great opportunity to connect with leaders in different roles and organizations…It was great to get out of my comfort zone.”

“It was good to step away and focus on my personal growth and development…Understanding my personality better and why some people probably behave the way they do will help to fine tune my skills with staff.”

Thanks again to the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation for their generosity in sponsoring the 2021 Leadership Institute!
