I’m happy to get another chance to invite leaders and potential leaders to consider getting involved in the Great Lakes Leadership Academy. Conducted by the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the academy has a mission to “promote positive change, economic vitality and resource conservation, and to enhance the quality of life in Michigan by encouraging leadership for the common good.”
The academy brings together current and emerging leaders to broaden perspectives about key sustainability issues and consider how leadership for the common good can influence Michigan’s future. I wrote more about the academy in an August 2010 blog entry.
You could be one of those leaders. Designed for developing individual leadership skills, the Emerging Leader Program meets 12 days between April and October in 2012. The academy seeks a diverse group of outstanding candidates interested in vitalizing Michigan communities, agriculture, business or environmental sectors and in growing their public policy work.
If you are interested in learning more about the Great Lakes Leadership Academy, either for your own interest or for others with whom you interact who are good candidates, you can check it out online at www.glla.msu.edu where you can also apply for the Emerging Leader Program. The deadline for applications is Nov. 15, 2011. Your leadership journey will begin in April 2012.
