What is Leadership Highlands?
Leadership Highlands is an educational program aimed at emerging and existing leaders in the Highlands community, offering an opportunity to enhance civic knowledge, leadership skills and network. Those selected commit to and engage in an eight-month curriculum, from March through October, that includes a retreat, day-long classes each month, a variety of enrichment workshops and projects, and a graduation ceremony.
Leadership Highlands brings together local experts and class members to engage and discuss topics such as Highlands’ history and cultural resources, economic development, government and public safety, health and human resources, education, arts and outdoor recreation. Personal leadership skills are developed through principle-based decision-making and team-building exercises.
Selection criteria includes civic involvement, leadership potential, diversity of perspective and commitment to the program and the Highlands community. A committee comprised of Highlands Chamber of Commerce staff, Board of Directors members and previous participants selects the class.
