Leadership Oakland provided me with an ideal opportunity to enhance my leadership skills and a way to connect and collaborate with other area leaders. The LO Cornerstone program offered a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Oakland County. As an African American female, I enjoyed having the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with 51 other leaders from across the region. In addition, I really appreciated how each cohort has an impactful community project. To be a great leader – we all must focus on how to leave our community better.
As an alum and an LO Board Member, I highly recommend taking this leadership journey.
Participation in Leadership Oakland allowed me to create a framework to discuss leadership in aspects of life beyond business. It provided me insights and reference points to use continuously and brought the results I was seeking. I’m thankful for the program, and the network of amazing people involved.
