Vision, relationship-building, listening, empathy, purpose, engagement, and the development of others were topics of focus for the November session of the largest cohort to date for Leadership Kenosha.

Starting at the Boys and Girls Club, ending at ELCA with presentations and tours by these organizations as well as United Way of Kenosha, and packed with sharing and reflection, including lunch and a visionary Q&A session with Mayor John Antaramian, it was a full day of growth. Participants learned more about local non-profit agencies, the value of generational differences in the workplace, and project management.

“Focusing on the Future Sets Leaders Apart”, and “You Can’t Do It Alone” were themes for the day, corroborated by our increased understanding of the community needs served by local non-profits. Thanks to all the leaders who inspired and shared, including Boys and Girls Club and ELCA staff; Tedi Winnett, Director of Kenosha County UW-Extension; Kamaljit K Jackson, Gateway Technical College; and Richard Rodenbeck, Interim CEO United Way.
