This is what some of our class participants had to say about their Leadership Northwest Missouri experience:

“Leadership Northwest Missouri offers one of the most unique experiences for leaders in our region. Like many, I thought Leadership Northwest Missouri would be like other leadership conferences or retreats I have attended. I thought I would take a leap of faith because other leaders had informed me that the sessions were beneficial. I assumed my time in these sessions would be formed around lectures and thought-provoking questions with little fun or collaboration. However, my initial thoughts were dispelled on the first day. We laughed, and we learned about others’ strengths and weaknesses. And we learned traits that would make us not only good leaders in our profession but good leaders in our communities. The stage was set for collaboration and fun. And fun we had! Each month we would meet with our class to discuss our personal and professional challenges and address strategies we could implement to aid our roles. These class sessions are not the traditional leadership lectures; Tim is AMAZING and integrates fun and learning every step of the way! While we addressed personal and professional challenges, we were also allowed to understand the strengths and challenges of various Northwest counties. The skills and relationships we have built through our course sessions together will impact all of us. Changes can be made if you are willing to take a leap of faith! So, what are you waiting for, take the leap!”
Brooke McAtee, Ph.D., RN; Maryville/Nodaway County

“Leadership Northwest Missouri is more than leadership classes and networking. It’s a place to grow as a whole person (personally, professionally, emotionally, etc.). Prior to classes beginning, I was burnt out, stressed, and needing something more out of life but could not quite put my finger on it. Fast-forward seven months and I’m excited about my life and new opportunities that have been made possible by the encouragement and support that I’ve received from Dr. Tim, Deb, classmates, and alumni.”
Kendra Pickering, RDN, LDN; Sheridan/Worth County

“Leadership Northwest is not just about professional development, but focuses on your personal journey as well. It’s a great program that allows people at every level to further their leadership skills not only in the workplace but in their community as well. It’s a wonderful opportunity for anyone who would like to apply.” Lesley Delaney, Carrollton/Carroll County 

“Saying that LNWMO met my expectations would be an understatement. The program was inspiring, educating, and overall, an incredible learning experience giving me the opportunity to utilize tools from this class in my professional and personal life. Most of all, the fellow leaders in this class are now lifelong friends. My experience in this class was incredible and I’m so thrilled to continue my involvement as an alumni member.” Shane Lynch, Trenton/Grundy County
