We currently are living in unprecedented times when our metal as a region is being tested.  We are requiring more from everyone to emerge stronger together.  The leadership programs offered by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce uniquely prepares you for the duty that we all will face.  As a participant in Leadership Cincinnati Class 43, we have tackled the many facets that are necessary to enhance our leadership toolbox.  Having active and formative discussion around topics such as regional competitiveness, implicit bias and leaving a legacy with other leaders in our region is an experience unmatched in Greater Cincinnati.

“Leadership Cincinnati is an amazing program to reinforce the fundamentals of authentic leadership, to better understand the challenges and opportunities within the Greater Cincinnati region, and to build deep and lasting relationships with a diverse set of individuals.  Leadership during crisis is even more important than ever before, and I have found participating in LC programs to be extremely valuable to help me approach the situation with new perspectives.  As well, the sounding board of classmates has been critical, and has resulted in win-win solutions such as the mask swap between Perfetti van Melle and St. Elizabeth.”

“Within just the first few weeks of starting WE Lead, I had realized real, tangible benefits over-and-above what was even promised to our class. Our focus on goal planning for both personal and professional development at the onset proved integral for defining and shaping my upcoming year. I still actively refer to my strategy map and vision board.”

"The Chamber is vital to our region’s success, whether through advocacy, lending its assistance to businesses in good times or in bad, or enabling an inclusive environment. And its success is enhanced by the Chamber’s professional development programs, including WE Lead and Leadership Cincinnati. As a graduate of both programs, I’ve grown professionally and personally, learning from diverse, talented groups ready to lend support and perspective. These programs are so important now to elevate a new group of leaders that will propel our region forward."
