Event Description:
Leadership Bedford provides a unique benefit of facilitating today’s existing and emerging leaders. This 6-month program provides classic training in leadership styles and techniques while incorporating community knowledge. Students will participate in activities focused on developing strong working relationships between participants, identifying and evaluating the characteristics of leadership and distinguishing each person’s leadership style. “Community Focus” sessions consist of panel discussions, lectures, and community tours which include face-to-face discussions with top-level business, civic and governmental leaders.

Students are expected to attend all sessions unless other arrangements have been made. “Snow Days” will be handled on a case-by-case basis at which time all students will be contacted via phone AND email by Wende Gaylor. This year we have an intimate class and will make the most of our time together. While students are expected to provide their own transportation (with the exception of Chamber Day at the Capitol), rideshare options are available between morning and afternoon sessions. Students should dress in a professional manner for all sessions, wearing business casual attire that can also accommodate movement and flexibility (with the exception of the Low Ropes Course at the Bedford YMCA – See class description for details). The Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce will provide snacks and lunch for students during each class. Any additional Dinner attendees will be required to pay for their meal.
