Leadership Woodford County
Your Leadership Woodford County experience will follow a basic format of day-sessions after the initial orientation. The outline below is meant to be a general guideline of each day and will give each participant an idea of topical concentration and scope of the particular areas to be covered. It is not meant to be a total curriculum but merely an overview. As such, it may evolve to include timely matters or to take advantage of specific events that may lend to the overall leadership educational experience.
The entire program serves up a multitude of benefits, from individual education to team- oriented training and learning. Class members will be called upon to actively participate in each session and in outside learning opportunities that challenge them to become involved in the community. It is, therefore, extremely important to recognize that commitment to the program is crucial due to the participation and team-building nature of leadership.
Employer sponsors, and individuals who self-sponsor, should be able to give the time necessary so results are full and meaningful. Each day-session is considered one session and class attendance will be strictly monitored. Participants may miss a maximum of two sessions before being dropped from the class. Once dropped, the participant may be considered for re-enrollment the following year.
