We Grow Leaders
The Leadership Academy is a 10 week training program designed for new and current leaders in a supervisory capacity to enhance leadership qualities, strengths and skills. The lessons cover a wide-variety of topics from strategic planning to ethics to team building to motivation: all topics vital to County leaders. Sixty (60) employees are nominated each year by their departments to participate in this program which culminates in a group project and graduation ceremony.
Advanced Leadership Academy
This program is a four session model during which employee’s leadership skills will be sharpened and expanded. Participants will complete a comprehensive curriculum on the Five Characteristics of an Effective Leader based on the bestselling book: The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes & Ponser, learn about County resources, and network across different County departments. The curriculum includes field trips to the Juvenile Justice Center, the Office of the Medical Examiner, UMC, the Jail Annex, and other County locations. This program only accepts up to 25 employees each year and prior graduation from the Leadership Academy is required.
