The image of a rope found throughout our website is a metaphor for this work. Each strand alone has strength. Weave these strands together and form something more powerful. It symbolizes each one of us building our own strengths. It also illustrates the community as a whole weaving together the talent and resources of its many leaders.

​Our vision is Strong Leaders. Collaborative Organizations. Healthy Communities., tomorrow and beyond



We believe more can be accomplished by working together, therefore; we offer a variety of Peer Advisory Groups at no charge for leaders of all levels. 



Assessments provide insight into workplace behaviors/leadership competencies. Coaching gives confidential support and accountability to take action for growth. A recipe for success!
