Who should apply?

Leading for Results is for emerging local government leaders in North Carolina.

These individuals can influence organizational strategy and change and are eager to lead and develop others. They are committed to an upward leadership trajectory and have the potential and desire to continue growing as the next generation of local government leaders. If the following statements describe you, you are probably a good candidate for the program. 

  • I want to gain more leadership skills to improve my team’s or organization’s performance and effectiveness.
  • I have moved from technical or administrative work into a leadership role and want to grow my leadership potential/impact.
  • I am passionate about public service.
  • I am committed to gaining skills to develop others in my organization.
  • My organization is invested in my leadership growth and will support my full participation in the two-week Leading for Results program (including covering the travel costs and allowing the time off).
