Leadership Trust Initiative

Leadership isn’t defined by something a person does or a position a person holds. True leadership is revealed by who a person is, how a person lives his or her life, and, most importantly, how a person uses her or his personal strengths to benefit other people and the community.

Leadership Trust Initiative (LTI) is a signature program of the Foundation that is building the capacity of up-and-coming leaders and re-energizing current leaders. Since 2009 LTI has been helping individuals uncover their strengths and utilize these strengths as citizens and leaders within their communities.

About LTI

LTI is comprised of nine day-long sessions conducted from March to November. Curriculum topics include Leading with Strengths, Deep Listening, Resilience, Wellness & Life Balance, Strengths & Passions in Action, Creativity & Innovation, and Leading Change & Transition. Participants work collaboratively in small teams to research and design community projects or initiatives.

Through participation in LTI, individuals:

  • Gain a deeper awareness of self and the intersection between self and others.
  • Discover and nurture personal strengths and abilities.
  • Gain resources and practice experiences that utilize their leadership skills and assist others in doing the same.
  • Expand their understanding of themselves and their community and find ways to make their community a better place to live and work.
  • Explore their creative potential and opportunities to express it.
  • Strengthen social networks and develop inclusive community collaborations, partnerships, and alliances.

“LTI is a leadership experience unlike any I had ever experienced before. It showcases an all-new way of thinking and living, both personally and professionally. The relationships formed through LTI and the collaboration opportunities were incredible. Best use of my time, EVER!” ~ Lisa Woletz (former participant)
