Congratulations to executive director Desi Flerlage on her acceptance into the Center for Leadership class with Leading Age Kansas. Sixteen individuals from across the state were chosen for the competitive program and will embark on a yearlong journey to improve their leadership acumen.
To apply, Desi had to complete an application process that included an application, essay and two letters of recommendation. The yearlong program includes four in-person classes and monthly conference calls focused on discovering authentic leadership, advocacy and community relationships.
“The leadership class, so far, has consisted of a lot of self-reflection and self-development. We are learning so many great leadership skills and techniques but the personal growth and development has been the biggest thing I have gained,” said Desi.
