Golden Triangle Leadership

 

golden triangle leadership logo

Golden Triangle Leadership (GTL) is sponsored by Columbus Lowndes Chamber of Commerce, Greater Starkville Development Partnership, and Growth Alliance. Our goal is to bring the leaders of the Golden Triangle together in order to strengthen the bond and development between all three regions. GTL will enhance the leadership potential of emerging and experienced leaders through 10 sessions from October until June. There will be one session each month, with the exception of two in October. These sessions are designed to offer a comprehensive, interactive experience for the participants, for them to learn about pertinent issues within our region, have networking opportunities with business leaders, and gain knowledge about our community. Sessions will cover team building, community development, economic development, industry, education, government, and media and leadership training.

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring the leaders of the Golden Triangle together by providing networking opportunities and sessions that cover important community aspects and address varying issues within our community through tours, speakers, Q & A, and hands-on experiences, all while teaching the GTL class how they can be effective leaders and effectively solve issues within the Golden Triangle. 

Strong Communities

We believe that strong leaders build strong communities, and strong communities increase the quality of life for all. The Golden Triangle area resolves to continue as a thriving and highly productive area of Mississippi. The mission of Golden Triangle Leadership program is to provide networking, leadership development, community problem solving, and partnership opportunities for residents of the area interested in enhancing individual and community success.

Enhancing Leadership Potential 

GTL will enhance the leadership potential of emerging and experienced leaders through eight sessions from October until May ending with a graduation in June. Each session is designed to offer a comprehensive, interactive experience for the participants, for them to learn about pertinent issues within our region, have networking opportunities with business leaders, and gain further knowledge about our community. Sessions may cover team building, community development, economic development, industry, education, government, and media and leadership training; however, sessions will be tailored to the needs of the group. 

Time Required

There will be one session each month that will require the leaders to miss one full day of work. Our plans are to meet the third Wednesday of each month. Although this is time away from the office, the benefits of employees being involved in the GTL program are substantial.

Details

Cost of the program is $500, which is normally covered by the employee’s business. The cost helps to cover transportation expenses and breakfasts along with a snack and lunch that will be provided at each session. Please see the following attachment for the tentative schedule and application. Applications must be submitted by Friday August 18, 2017 at 5:00 pm. Applicants will be selected and will be notified of acceptance by September 7th, 2017. For further information, please contact your local Chamber of Commerce if you have any questions.
