Leadership Waterloo Region Class of 2013

In 2007, I was invited to volunteer at Leadership Waterloo Region to support its marketing efforts. As I learned about the organization, I became intrigued by its community-based experiential learning approach to leadership development and realized that the people associated with the organization were inspirational leaders with a passion for their community. I soon found myself reflecting on my own community involvement and leadership skills.

The Core Program enabled me to enhance my leadership style to something more grounded in science and best practices. I gained valuable exposure to a variety of topics including business models, practical leadership skills and the softer people skills. The relevant and interesting content was taught by local experts using local examples and the community projects enabled me to work with local leaders to explore issues their organizations were facing. And my network now includes people of all ages and backgrounds, working in all sectors and at all levels right here in Waterloo Region. What other program delivers all this?

Today I am a better and more connected leader who is more aware of, engaged in and invested in my community.
