Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.)

Justin in trustee meeting Do you believe leaders are born or made?

Do you feel that strong leadership skills will help you get ahead?

Participating in MCC's Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) program is the perfect opportunity for you to discover or strengthen your inner leader.

L.E.A.D. is a series of workshops and activities to develop your leadership skills and abilities and explore the theories and practices of leadership. Experienced leadership and communication professionals help you examine what makes an effective leader and a successful professional. L.E.A.D. provides opportunities for you to practice what you learn as you participate in leadership roles on- and off-campus.

Workshops topics include community building, conflict resolution, making small talk, service excellence, personal branding, professional communications, leadership inventories, and more.
