Why Leadership Bootcamp?

The framework of Leadership Bootcamp includes the below three sections focused on different areas of leadership. Each week, we’ll explore one or two topics on a proven leadership methodology taught by an expert in that field.*

  • Personal Leadership
    Sessions include a personality assessment, emotional intelligence, public speaking and goal setting.
  • Leading Others
    Sessions to include developing a rockstar team, instinctual leadership and conflict management.
  • Leading a Business
    Sessions to include strategic planning, hiring best practices and workplace culture.
  • *Sessions subject to change based on speaker availability and needs of the Bootcamp participants. 

    Here’s what previous graduates of Leadership Bootcamp had to say:

    “This program is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills and form lasting relationship with fellow leaders in the community. I would highly recommend the program to anyone interested in personal and professional development!”

    “The program was great as it gave me practical tools that I could take back to my office and begin implementing immediately. It also gave me a great deal of insight into my management style and how I could be more effective.”

    “A must have for anyone making the transition from employee to management”


    Space is limited to 30 people. Candidates for the program come from diverse backgrounds and each person contributes to the group dynamic. Participants must be able to commit the time needed for completion of the class, eager to learn and willing to get involved.
