Leadership Initiative Helps Attract and Retain Talent in Greater Lansing
The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) has announced that it is now accepting applications for the 2016-17 Leadership Lansing cohort. Leadership Lansing is a program in which established and emerging leaders develop a greater understanding of how important community institutions contribute to the overall quality of life in the region. Thirty-five leaders from a diverse group of businesses have participated in the first Leadership Lansing program, which concluded in May. The second year of the program will commence in October 2016 and run through May 2017.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the response that the community has had for Leadership Lansing and the success of our first year,” said Tim Daman, LRCC president and chief executive officer. “The feedback we have received from those who have participated has been very enthusiastic and many individuals have already expressed interest in enrolling in our next program.”
Leadership Lansing is an eight month program in which participants engage in seven workshops where they are exposed to key institutions, industry sectors and business leaders that are the fabric of the Greater Lansing region. Workshops this year focused on government, education, manufacturing, insurance, healthcare, home grown businesses and entrepreneurism, cultural gems in the region and the history of Lansing. Participants also received training in individual leadership skills including understanding how to identify and leverage their personal strengths. Leadership Lansing is facilitated by credentialed coaches and certified leadership instructors, Susan Combs, MBA, PCC of Susan Combs Coaching and Consulting, and Ross Woodstock, ACC of Kolt Communications.
Tuition for Leadership Lansing is $1,950 and includes all workshops, materials and meals. Applications for enrollment in the October 2016 cohort are now being accepted.
