Leadership McPherson 2020- An Impactful Experience

Leadership McPherson is a professional development program of the McPherson Chamber of Commerce to develop effective leadership, open minds to perspectives that surround issues facing our community and enable participants to become more visionary leaders.

It has been an impactful program since 1982.  Leadership McPherson Class participants will learn to recognize their talents, skills and strengths and discover new traits to celebrate and appreciate in others.  The in-depth, educational program focuses on developing leadership competencies and giving participants the skills to move organizations and businesses forward.

In 2000 the Leadership Class curriculum began incorporating a class project to benefit the youth of McPherson County. Through the years, these class projects have touched many lives and continues to make a difference in our community.
