Watauga Leadership Challenge
The Watauga Leadership Challenge class gives participants the opportunity to broaden their understanding of leadership and to see themselves as agents of change in their associations, their places of work, their community, and in their own lives.
To develop the capacity to lead, one must have a keen sense of self-awareness, an understanding of others, a recognition of how people work together in teams and organizations, and an awareness of the greater community.
Watauga Leadership Challenge strikes a balance between understanding leadership and understanding the community. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with business and community leaders who are finding ways to bring people together for change.
