Leadership Programs & Services

The Leadership Centre is committed to offering programs and services for the development and enhancement of leadership skills.  The Centre offers three levels of the Leadership Networks courses. Participants are not required to start with Leadership Networks 101; instead, work with us to determine which Networks program is the right fit for you!

 "It doesn’t matter where I go in my work throughout the community, I can always tell the people who have been through Leadership Networks – they are the ones out there, they are making a difference." 
Former Mayor: Morris Flewwelling

The Leadership Networks program is not your typical leadership training program. What makes us unique?

  1. Quality Curriculum and Facilitators
  2. Capacity Building
  3. Community Based
  4. Diverse Participants

Through Leadership Networks, emerging and established leaders are immersed in a leadership experience that goes beyond the simple acquisition of information, knowledge and skills. Learning is enhanced by hands-on activities and builds on resources that currently exist in Central Alberta by turning our community into the classroom.
