After five months of training, Leadership Southeast Georgia announces the 2015 graduating class. Leadership Southeast Georgia is a regional program to equip and empower community leaders to effectively work promoting positive growth while improving the quality of life in the Southeast Georgia Coastal Region.
This year, 23 participants, including John Henry of the Effingham Industrial Development Authority, spent one weekend a month in surrounding counties learning about topics that effect local counties such as healthcare, education, economic development and transportation.
All of the participants live and work within Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties.
The Leadership Southeast Georgia program focuses on improving competencies most important to regional leadership. Those competencies include: emotional intelligence or “mastery of self;” integrity and trust; ethics and values; building and sustaining collaboration; conflict resolution and mediation through different interests; effective communications with individuals and large and geographically dispersed audiences; and systematical thinking and long-range decision making.
