Courageous Conversations Before Lunch!

2009 Scottsdale Leadership Class Reporter

The Scottsdale Leadership Experience
This is the seventh of a 17 article series recapping Scottsdale Leadership’s nine-month Core Program. The program educates, connects and empowers citizens who are interested in community leadership.

On December 4, Scottsdale Leadership class day was a bit different than normal. Instead of covering one topic the day consisted of three elements. Class 24 started with a Leadership Academy, continued on to Scottsdale Leadership’s 10th Annual Spirit of Community Leadership Awards Luncheon and then the class spent the afternoon working in on our Pay it Forward team projects.

How fierce is Scottsdale Leadership’s Class 24?
