Leadership Workshop

Posted: Updated:

It is never too late - or too early - to become a better leader.

Skills for the future were exercised today by people of all ages and of many different roles in the community

The Rural Leadership Program is offered in an 18 month course, or a one-day leadership workshop like you see here.

The small groups are given a scenario for a city - they create a plan for that community's future - then they're given a new map of the same community five years later.

The new scenario includes a 'monkey-wrench' for the community --- for instance, a population boom, or a flood.

The groups learn proper ways to help communities plan, build networks, and how to inspire others to speak up.

Many in today's group are already active leaders in the community looking for ways to improve themselves.

(Marie Hvidsten, NDSU Extension Service Rural Leadership Specialist) "I think that's the key to an effective leader is always trying to find new ways, either to think about things and new information and as I mentioned earlier today we do things through people, building a network is really critical and this is a great way to build a network."

The Rural Leadership Program has been active for ten years --- they've hosted seminars all over the state.

The short course is $25.

And the 18 month course is close to $4,000 and includes three out of state conferences --- one international.

The leadership workshops are open to anyone interested.

Call your local extension center for more information.
