Leadership Gilroy

 What is Leadership Gilroy? Leadership Gilroy is an extensive nine-month program that consists of three major components: skills training, community awareness, and personal development. Topics for leadership training sessions will include: team building, communications, facilitative leadership styles, values and ethics, personal life balance, effective meetings, diversity and conflict resolution. Participants will also be responsible to complete a community project during the nine-month period.

General Information

One of the most important programs a community can support is the training of new leaders to equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to help their town thrive and succeed. The Leadership Gilroy program has been doing just that since 1998 and has a community of leaders to show for it!

Through our 9-month program, over 230 Leadership Gilroy graduates have experienced the multiple facets of Gilroy and today serve on various boards, task forces, non-profit agencies, councils, and in local business management.

We are looking for individuals who are committed to the community and are passionate and motivated to grow in their leadership skills. Class members do not need prior leadership experience to participate, only a positive attitude and leadership potential. You or someone you know may benefit from enrolling in the 2010 class. The enrollment process includes completing the application, an application screening and an interview process.

The Program
Interest, motivation, diversity and the commitment to serve for the long-term benefit of the community are the guiding principles of selection. Participants will reflect a cross section of the community: business, government, and community services as well as education, ethnicity, gender and community involvement.

The Goal
To develop leaders who will be instrumental into taking Gilroy into the 21st Century. Graduates of the program will be armed with the skills and confidence to run, serve, and be effective on councils, boards, committees, etc.
