Lead Now

Lead Now is the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce’s premiere leadership development program. This skills-based program is designed for motivated people who want to strengthen their leadership effectiveness. This program allows participants the opportunity to build upon their own leadership strengths through dynamic learning experiences.

360° Feedback

The program is built around the Leadership Effectiveness Analysis™ (LEA) assessment. This tool provides feedback in six leadership functions: team playing, creating a vision, developing followership, implementing the vision, following through, and achieving results.

Understanding + Application

Participants receive a personalized debrief about the results of their analysis which provides the opportunity to set goals for development. Through 1:1 coaching and classroom interactions, participants have the opportunity to solidify understanding through practice and application.

Community Impact

Throughout the course of the program, our leaders come together to work as a newly-formed team to help area nonprofits thrive.
