NEW! Leadership Columbia Graduate Series
Tuesday, January 24, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM (EST)
Introducing the Leadership Columbia Graduate Series
Make the Transition to Senior Leadership in Your Organization and Our Community
The Leadership Columbia Alumni Association and the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce the Leadership Columbia Graduate Series (LCGS), a four-part series providing advanced training for civic engagement. Sessions will include:
Think and Act Like a Senior Leader (Jan. 24): Retired Maj. Gen. Steve Siegfried helps you learn the difference between putting out the proverbial “fires” and identifying and addressing the cause of the fires to make you and your team more successful and impactful.
Advanced Political Systems (Feb. 28): Take part in a unique role playing workshop during which you and fellow class members will become a city council, address a key issue and gain perspective on the inner workings of municipal governments. The South Carolina Municipal Association will conduct the session.
Global Awareness (March 27): Participants will enhance their global perspective and learn about the impact of international business on South Carolina's economy. They will delve into resource conflicts already affecting international relations.
Strategic Nonprofit Leadership – Focus on Mission Delivery (April 24): Learn skills to become a better leader by focusing on the mission rather than the organization. Become adept at develop partnership relationships and shared resources to help your nonprofit advance its mission. Gain practical knowledge to take you from the board of directors to the executive committee – or board chair – of your organization.
Registration is $300 for the series or $85 per session, open only to alumni of Leadership Columbia. LCAA members receive a $50 discount for the series. For more information, call 803.733.1123.
