As a community leadership program, Leadership Ashland is dedicated to providing participants with actionable leadership skills that can be applied in their workplace, as well as in the larger community. Leadership Ashland is not just about leadership theories- it is about equipping leaders with the practical skills necessary to create effective teams and improve organizational performance. Through a combination of classroom and experiential learning, participants have the opportunity to develop heightened awareness of their strengths, learning style, and what it means to be a leader capable of facilitating discussion and building relationships on all levels.
Upon graduation, our Leadership Ashland participants are equipped with critical, 21st century skills necessary to be successful in their respective organizations as well as in the community. An example of enhanced community leadership that results from Leadership Ashland is seen in the number of graduates who are board members for agencies that serve Ashland County.
