Thinking Out Loud

Leadership Hancock County

This the sixth year of Leadership Hancock County ( which begins on January 19th.  Deb Burwell and I have been the two instructors from the beginning.  We’ve developed a strong curriculum rooted in best practices, focusing on communication, decision-making, collaboration, conflict resolution, and networking.  Our host sites offer us opportunities to learn about different sectors of the economy, their vision and leadership challenges.  We have six diverse sites this winter and spring, and our participants cover a wide range of for-profit and non-profit organizations.

I’m truly looking forward to another great year!
