Leadership Pickaway is a six-month program offered by the Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce. The program is a resource for businesses to help employees learn more about the county and the networks available to expand business reach. Participants will learn about various aspects of the county and meet leaders from around the county. Areas of focus include education, business, nonprofits, social services, agriculture, government. The program provides the opportunity to network with nearly 100 people.
During the program participants will learn about the many hidden gems throughout the county. Awareness of the diversity of the county, networking during the program, and learning more about the county allow participants to increase their leadership skills and make maneuvering business in Pickaway County more beneficial.
Ideal participants are rising stars in any organization, those who possess ability, have demonstrated commitment to community service and have potential for responsible and effective leadership. Participants do not need to be a resident of Pickaway County or an employee of a Pickaway County business to participate. They just need to be actively employed and committed to becoming a better leader.
Participants must adhere to Leadership Pickaway guidelines. Participants must be in attendance one day a month from 8:00 am-4:00 pm, January-June. Attendance is not only mandatory, but extremely important. We ask participants to respect everyone’s schedules and arrive on time. Employers will be notified of a participant’s absence. These are just a few of the basic qualities of a leader.
The next class will begin in January of 2024.
