~ Press release issued by Lord Fairfax Community College
Time is running out to secure a seat in Lord Fairfax Community College Workforce Solutions’ second annual Leadership Excellence course, an advanced-training program offered between Sept. 8 and Dec. 15 at the college’s Middletown Campus.
Class size is limited to 20 participants, with up to three representatives per company. This highly-interactive cohort model encourages the students to learn from each other, share ideas and develop new relationships.
This year, Leadership Excellence will focus on three core leadership competencies: adaptability, communication and resiliency, all critically important in the challenging climate businesses currently face.
“There is a common misconception that there are natural born leaders,” said Carlene Hurdle, director of corporate training for LFCC. “The truth is, most leaders work hard at learning how to lead effectively and developing their skills so they can better motivate and inspire their employees. This year’s Leadership Excellence program has been curated to be relevant to the unique challenges we all face in today’s disruptive times.”
The courses will be led by Jay Foreman, a John C. Maxwell-certified trainer, coach and bestselling author.
Workforce Solutions has been offering in-person classes since July, following safety guidelines recommended by the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These include social distancing measures, requiring face masks and enhanced sanitation and cleaning.
