The long-term success of an organization, institution or community often depends upon how successfully its values have been passed on to the next generation of leaders.
Several years ago, existing and emerging young leaders from around Anderson County approached established leaders with the concept of developing a leadership recognition/enrichment program. It was their feeling that in order for a committed group of their peers to emerge as future “replacements” for existing senior leaders, our community needed to develop a means of nurturing them into service; applauding their efforts to date – utilizing recognition as a means to encourage the involvement of others on the “sidelines”; to invest in their future leadership “development” by offering them exposure to potential mentors in our community, as well as leadership enrichment opportunities with regional, state and national figures. This led to the formation of LEADERSHIPnext.
LEADERSHIPnext is designed to engage, empower and enrich the next generation of leaders with the end goal of improving our community.
