Leadership Indianapolis

Our LEAD program is designed for emerging and experienced civic leaders who want to be more effective in their community leadership endeavors.  Throughout our four sessions, we help our participants develop and hone the key skills necessary to achieving success in the civic arena, and provide the opportunity to practice them.

Participants see what real-world leadership looks like and explore strategies for pulling everything - and everyone - together so that they can find success in challenging environments.  And we know that the skills we focus on in LEAD are also helpful to our participants in their work lives.  Many of our participants have told us they have experienced increased effectiveness at work and in their civic leadership.

LEAD helps participants develop the skills to achieve the following:

  • Build trust among a group of people

  • Cast a clear and compelling vision

  • Motivate a team to achieve success

  • Develop and sustain the confidence to lead

  • Managing conflict to stay focused
