Adult Leadership Academy preparing for 2018

Posted: Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Huntington County Leadership, Inc. and Purdue Extension are partnering to offer the Huntington County Adult Leadership Academy again in 2018. The academy offers training for individuals who are willing to give their time and talents to serve the needs of others and their community.

Confident, skilled and knowledgeable leaders are needed to inspire, lead and build dynamic and viable organizations and communities. Graduates from past academies are actively using skills they developed during the series as directors and board members in the community. This series of workshops will increase the capacity of existing and emerging leaders through an eleven module leadership development training program. The academy is hosted by Purdue Extension educators, facilitated by trained extension staff and based on research-based curriculum.

The sessions will begin January 17, 2018 and continue every other Wednesday through May 30, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. A variety of topics vital to serving the Huntington community will be discussed.

Topic include: Getting to Know Huntington County, Identifying My Leadership Style, Leading Through Interpersonal Communication, Building a Healthy Community, Managing Conflict, Getting Involved in Huntington County, Serving on Non-Profit Boards, Exploring Economic Development in Huntington County, Exploring Education in Huntington County, Learning How County Government Works and Exploring Diversity in Huntington County.
