We pre-recorded today’s conversation with Guy Curtis, Director of Marketing, Business & Industry Training for Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions & his guest Jeff Hill, Quality Assurance Manager for Thermo-Fisher Scientific to talk about Leadership Institute.

Guy explained that the program, now in its 10th year, has served 217 leaders and 35 companies in and around the LFCC service region. The Leadership Institute is designed to help a cohort of new and emerging leaders from the business community develop and grow their understanding and application of leadership skills. Participants will take a deep dive into several relevant competency-based leadership topics with dedicated time to collaborate and develop action items to implement in the workplace.

Jeff told us about his experience in the program – he’s a 2015 graduate – and the tools he learned that have guided his career.

Taught by experts with more than 15 years’ experience, Leadership Institute gives participants the chance to explore how leadership insights and real-world skills can provide relevant illustrations and engaging stories to help organizations deliver the type of long-term results they are capable of delivering. 11 sessions are held on the second Thursday of the month, starting on April 8, 2021, and concluding on February 10, 2022. Each session is 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and held at various local organizations.

It may be too late to register for this program, but Guy explained they are exploring the possibility of adding a second session. He also reminded us that LFCCWS offers many different leadership training opportunities regardless of your leadership level. For more information, visit:
