Are you seeking a transformative experience in your local government career? Are you ready for a fresh perspective and eager to connect with other public servants making a difference in their communities? The Great Lakes Leadership Academy and MSU Extension Center for Local Government Finance and Policy are partnering to offer a 1-day leadership intensive for local government staff and elected or appointed officials. 

Join us for a 1-day Leadership Intensive to learn more about the Great Lakes Leadership Academy (GLLA) way! We believe in leading from any chair. Whether you’re an elected or appointed official, department head, or staff, you have leadership potential to nurture.

In this unique accelerated learning opportunity, you will better understand the core values of GLLA, explore your unique leadership path, and discover what it means to be a value-guided leader. You will identify a relevant leadership challenge and set a strategic goal for your future with the help of our trained professional coaching staff. Through this highly interactive workshop, participants work their way through their leadership challenge in a way that is aligned with personal and shared values using a group-coaching model of applied learning.

This workshop is a great opportunity to get introduced to GLLA if you’re new or for alumni to reconnect with our content and faculty. Participants will receive a certificate of completion and access to additional resources after the program.
