Since 1983, our flag­ship Lead­er­ship pro­gram, now re­ferred to as Lead­er­ship En­gage, has ex­isted to unite and ed­u­cate our county’s most promis­ing lead­ers. Each class is made up of 45 to 50 mo­ti­vated, in­formed and di­verse pro­fes­sion­als who are se­lected for their lead­er­ship and ser­vice within Palm Beach County and be­yond. Par­tic­i­pants meet for one full day each month, from Septem­ber to May, and travel as a group on a bus to all parts of the county as they ex­plore pro­gram topics such as agri­cul­ture, public safety and health care. This pro­gram of­fers suc­cess­ful pro­fes­sion­als a pow­er­ful new net­work and a trans­for­ma­tive learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. We bring

to­gether the right in­di­vid­u­als and en­able them to see our com­mu­nity with fresh per­spec­tive and aware­ness.

Lead­er­ship Fo­cus is our pro­gram for those in­ter­ested in deep­en­ing their knowl­edge about Palm Beach County, but who just don’t have the time or ex­pe­ri­ence to par­tic­i­pate in our nine-month Lead­er­ship pro­gram. It’s a 2½-day pro­gram for ex­ec­u­tives and pro­fes­sion­als who want to broaden their un­der­stand­ing of our com­mu­nity, con­nect with peo­ple of in­flu­ence, and ex­plore Palm Beach County’s strengths, chal­lenges and ini­tia­tives.

Our Lead­er­ship Grow pro­gram, mir­ror­ing our En­gage pro­gram, en­ables 40 to 50 high school ju­niors to un­der­stand the crit­i­cal is­sues fac­ing Palm Beach County while en­cour­ag­ing them to ex­pand their lead­er­ship roles and build a foun­da­tion of in­volve­ment in their com­mu­nity.

Led by a team of ded­i­cated Lead­er­ship Palm Beach County alumni, stu­dents spend nine months gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence by hav­ing un­par­al­leled ac­cess to lead­ers from busi­nesses, govern­ment agen­cies and civic or­ga­ni­za­tions. This pro­gram is free to the stu­dents.

Lead­er­ship As­pire is a pro­gram of­fered by Lead­er­ship Palm Beach County (LPBC) based on a com­mu­nity needs as­sess­ment con­ducted in De­cem­ber 2015. As­pire in­cludes quar­terly four-hour work­shops pre­sented on themes such as lead­ing with emo­tional in­tel­li­gence, ef­fec­tive public speak­ing, con­flict res­o­lu­tion and cul­tural com­pe­tence.
