WE BUILD LEADERS
Leadership Cheyenne is the experience of a lifetime!
This program is for a diverse group of business professionals who participate in a challenging, interactive and thought-provoking nine month educational program, followed by a three month event planning process. The program is designed to promote a better understanding of the community, build and enhance leadership skills, and develop a strong network of future community leaders. Leadership Cheyenne encourages participants to share the benefit of their own experiences while they also learn from others. The goal is to inform participants about the diversity of our community in regards to government, education, business, economic development, and social issues.
A community is only as good as its leaders.
Effective leaders see where the community has been, understand its unique challenges and resources, and have the courage and skills to make an impact. Communities that make a concerted effort to develop leadership qualities in their citizens strengthen the economic health and provide other extensive advantages over other communities. Each Leadership Cheyenne Class is unique and finds their own way to contribute to the community. The best part of the program is the development of valuable relationships created along the way.
Be a leader who believes in the future of our community!
