Course Description: The Community Leadership Academy is an experience for individuals looking to enhance their leadership capabilities and connect with like-minded professionals in Eagle County. The program is intended to help participants develop strong values-based leadership skills, create a broad network of confidants, as well as build trust and consistency between agencies.
The Community Leadership Academy utilizes the “Inside First” model. This model is a continuous process that is always cycling and looping back. It’s a flow from inside reflection to outside action with relationships as a constant backdrop. It’s developed through a thoughtful process that helps people discover a deeper sense of themselves, their values, their beliefs and their purpose. A significant premise is that leadership engages us in others people’s lives, and before inserting ourselves, we should each know how to lead our own lives first.
