Educating, connecting and energizing leadersto serve and improve the community.


I learned a lot about the dynamics of leadership itself. On one of the particular program days we spent a great deal of time on decision-making. I learned that day SEVERAL valuable lessons that have helped me immeasurably about decision-making, and the importance of listening to everybody's opinions. It is always good to be reminded that no individual knows everything. These are extremely valuable leadership tools. There were many, many other benefits from my Leadership Winston-Salem experience, but this is the main one.”
