The world needs better leaders. We need them in our community and in yours.
There seems to be a big misconception, however, around what it means to be a leader. So often the world tries to convince us that leadership is about money, title, influence, and power. The truth is while titles and influence may be helpful, they are just tools. They may make you a better leader, but they will never make you a leader.
Leadership Niagara is changing the way leadership is viewed and practiced in Western New York. We are looking for people with the right motivation who want to grow, learn, and change something for the better.
If this sounds like you or the leader you'd like to be, then we encourage you to apply now for Leadership Niagara's Class of 2019 and join our next cohort of 40-50 leaders.
Thank you to the hundreds of the individuals and organizations, industry experts, and leadership professionals who have contributed to growth and success of Leadership Niagara and who have helped us become a nationally recognized model for excellence and innovation.
Leaders will receive a practical understanding of what leadership is and what it is not, build a strong peer learning network, and gain knowledge of issues that impact our communities. Sessions will focus on self awareness, behavioral assessments (DISC), teamwork and collaboration, change and transformation, creativity and innovation, and other leadership competencies.
