The Expectations of Leadership Richardson

Leadership Richardson participants can expect to enhance personal and organizational leadership skills that are inherent in community trusteeship. The September retreat, October session and May closing session are devoted to leadership development. Participants are assigned to session planning committees that allow them to utilize the community leadership techniques.

Participants have the opportunity to explore all aspects of the dynamics of the Richardson community. From November through May, the class studies seven different topics in sessions that are a mixture of information, problem solving and interaction. The topics include Arts and Cultural Diversity, Business and Economic Development, Healthcare, City Government and Regionalism, Public Education, Public Safety and Social Services.

Leadership Richardson is a unique opportunity to develop friendships with people from all walks of life. After graduation, participants are eligible to join the Leadership Richardson Alumni Association. The Association provides graduates with a continuing opportunity to develop and renew business, civic, and cultural contacts throughout the community.
