ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Leadership Northwest Missouri has begun recruiting for its 2021 class.
“2020 has brought extraordinary challenges,” according to a news release. “While life is anything but typical right now, we understand the importance of continuing to offer opportunities to lead, connect and grow within the Northwest Missouri region. Leadership Northwest Missouri is looking for the right men and women to fill its 2021 class, promising those who join an experience they’ll never forget.”
Often, seminars offer tips on leadership and networking, but this program provides a localized experience, offering leadership training, education on hot topics in the region and access to a well-connected network of contacts. Here is what some of the 2020 class participants have to say about their experience:
“Leadership Northwest has been a fun and challenging experience of connecting with and learning from a diverse group of leaders from all over northwest Missouri,” said Brother David Wilding, of Conception Abbey. “It has challenged me to grow in many ways, to think about issues outside my normal scope, and to stretch myself beyond my comfort zone.”
The 2021 class will begin with a two-day retreat at Conception Abbey, Jan. 20 and 21, led by Tim Crowley, Ph.D., a national speaker on personal and professional development.
Daylong, monthly classes will follow in various communities throughout the 19-county region, (Andrew, Atchison, Buchanan, Caldwell, Carroll, Clay, Clinton, Daviess, DeKalb, Gentry, Grundy, Harrison, Holt, Linn, Livingston, Mercer, Nodaway, Sullivan and Worth), with the class graduation scheduled for July 15, 2021.
“LNWMO has provided excellent opportunities to grow, both as a leader and as a person and to network with other leaders throughout the northwest region,” said Randy Mendenhall, of Oregon, Missouri.
Participants will have the opportunity to gain a new outlook on the workplace, enhanced leadership skills, hands-on team building exercises, communication and motivational skills, and so much more.
To create an effective experience, Leadership Northwest Missouri will limit the number of class participants. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1.
