LeadershipPlenty® is recognized as one of the best leadership development programs in the country. In an analysis of leadership programs offered in the United States, Phillips Wyatt Knowlton Inc. described LeadershipPlenty® as offering “the strongest example of curricula” of the exemplary programs included. Building from modules that teach civic skills like taking action, managing conflict, and building partnerships, LeadershipPlenty® is a powerful tool to help diverse groups in communities large and small, work together to solve problems and assess the results.

The theory behind LeadershipPlenty® is simple — broad-based community leadership is critical for long-term, positive community change. LeadershipPlenty® is an experiential and practical tool for training emerging leaders that builds on individual experience and adult education principles. The goal is to make civic leadership training available to those who may not consider themselves leaders but have much to offer their communities and to strengthen the skills of those who hold leadership positions.
