Surround Yourself With Amazing People - Leadership Austin

When you surround yourself with amazing people the sky is the limit. Below you will find a seven minute video featuring many members of the 2008 Essentials Class of Leadership Austin sharing their opinions of what makes Leadership Austin a spectacular organization.

I just completed my year in the Leadership Austin program, and I cannot find the words to describe the experience. It is not just the curriculum that makes it great, but the interactions with a diverse and engaging group of people who challenge each other to examine their commitment to community service, leadership and success.

You will see in the video that the theme for everyone is their connections to the other people in the class. While I did not have the opportunity to get to know everyone in the group, I developed an unparalleled level of respect for these dedicated leaders.

Applications for the 2009 class are being accepted until June 16, 2008.

Have A Great Day.

I concur! I did the "Leadership Michigan" program back in 2003 and am still close to many of my classmates - 5 years and 3 moves later. And for those who long for this sort of experience -- check out your local chamber of commerce. Many run programs such as this. And as you say Thom, it is a life-changer. Hooah! TM
