Shaping tomorrow's leaders today
For over a decade, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce and Volunteer Manitoba have partnered together to offer Leadership Winnipeg, a 10-session leadership program (plus class project), which runs from September through June. The program provides experiences that inspire and help individuals to develop an understanding of themselves, their community and their role within it.
The day-long sessions, held once a month, are hosted in the community and focuses on a theme. The sessions include tours and guest speakers, plus an opportunity to interact with those speakers. The program is primarily learning by experiencing as opposed to textbook-based learning. A portion of the day is also devoted to leadership development – providing the tools that will enhance the participant’s communication, facilitation, collaboration and time management skills.
In January 2016, Leadership Winnipeg launched a component of the program called Board Connect, which places graduates and alumni on non-profit boards and/or Board subcommittees within Winnipeg.
Due to an overwhelming response, at this time we are accepting applications for the wait list only for the 2018-2019 class. For further information, contact Program Manager Ellen Kornelson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (204) 944-8484.
