The LEAD Course is a high-level leadership development course focused on the critical skills, awareness, and perspective that will make all the difference to your success as a leader in the municipal utility industry. The LEAD Course is designed for utility and/or city staff at all levels who lead and influence others in their work. Employees who currently have, or anticipate having, leadership responsibilities will gain the most from this curriculum.

This is a one-year course. Those registering should fully intend to participate in each session as they must be taken in order given. The 2020 dates are: January 15-16, April 22-23, August 12-13, and November 18-19.

The curriculum will consist primarily of various articles and materials provided electronically. Some sessions will have assigned reading prior to the meeting--typically a book on leadership. Students will go through an assessment to help the instructor and the students understand their styles, strengths, and potential deficiencies in key competencies.

Students will have tasks to work on between sessions and will be expected to do some journaling.

Each session is a crucial building block in developing the skills, awareness, and perspective of a true leader.
