Vision Leadership



Connect, Create, Contribute, Celebrate!
An Intensive Leadership Workshop facilitated by Rooks County Economic Development.

A leaderful community is essential in the 21st century.  Everyone must have the capacities to make the community work.  This intensive workshop will help you understand what makes an effective community, discover your gifts and talents, and learn to create and work in performing teams, transforming challenges into possibilities.

NOTE:  The 2023 Vision Leadership program may be different than previous Vision Leadership classes.  We are considering an event that includes discussion of two books:  When Everyone Leads and 13 Ways to Kill Your Community.  Stay tuned for details.

Time:  The first session will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  All other sessions are from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
