Leadership Action

Activating Our Community's Leaders

Leadership Action

Leadership Action is an extension of Leadership Cincinnati that is focused completely on designing and executing a single project. The focus of each year’s work is grounded in the community priorities that have already been articulated by the United Way’s Bold Goals, Agenda 360 and Vision 2015. 

Leadership Action will help the participants move beyond the confines of their organizations to become engaged in the way public policy and decision making occur in the complex environment of the community setting.  That experience will be immediately valuable in their current positions and help prepare a cadre of experienced and wise community leaders for the time that they will be in the top leadership positions in their businesses and organizations.

The participants will learn methods to analyze the current state of affairs, ways to benchmark against best practices in other regions, ways to work effectively on highly diverse teams and ways to achieve results in a conflicted environment in which no single authority can unilaterally impose a solution. The result will be concrete progress on the community level and the development of highly skilled leadership cadre that know how to work across companies and organizations. 


To create a space in which a team of the brightest, most promising and passionate business, community and entrepreneurial leaders work together to drive change in the most important sectors of our community. 


The 20+ leaders admitted to the program each year will be drawn from the talented ranks of local businesses and not-for profit organizations who are on the path to the highest levels of leadership in their organizations.  They would be the people who know how to “get things done.” 

Seeking 20-25 leaders of all ages. Graduates of Leadership Cincinnati, WE Lead and C-Change are especially encouraged to apply.


Applications for Class 3 will be available November 2015.  


Leadership Action runs from May-April 2015 (12 mo.)


Program cost is $4,000. Application fee is $50.
