The Watauga Leadership Challenge is an innovative leadership
development program designed to meet our county?s need for the
active participation of informed and educated leaders.

Participants and their employers are asked to make a major time
commitment to seven sessions, beginning with a retreat-style team
building event in January of 2018. The class will meet two times
per month beginning in February and the coursework will conclude
in late April.

For the first time, Watauga Leadership Challenge will offer two
course tracks.

The Leadership Challenge Class features series of day-long sessions
that combines core leadership development concepts with
an immersion into the essential functions of our community. Participants
will visit local businesses and hear from key area leaders
that provide a first-hand look at how leadership skills are implemented
in our local economic landscape. Each class session will
end with a team-style leadership challenge that wraps around the
day?s topic. This course is a perfect fit for participants who are new
to the Boone community or those seeking career advancement into
management roles.

The Leadership Development Class provides more detailed focus
on leadership principles. Coursework will cover five key traits
of effective leadership while utilizing expert facilitators and
panelists to bring real-world examples into each step of the process.
This course is open to previous Watauga Leadership Challenge
graduates or to those that have completed similar coursework
in another community.

Graduates of Watauga Leadership Challenge classes enjoy
career-long networking opportunities with over 300 program
alumni. Annual alumni functions provide timely refreshers of key
concepts while connecting participants with new contacts that
have shared in the WLC experience.

Sign up today and take the
next step in furthering your own career.
