Leadership Flagship

Overview

Annual Flagship ten-month program designed for established senior leaders who have demonstrated leadership experience and proven success over significant business operations. Flagship provides in-depth knowledge of our community and facilitates small group projects that give back.

Program Content

In addition to opening and closing retreat, the program spends eight days highlighting greater Huntsville. Participants examine the Economic Base/Innovation, Education, Human Services, Healthcare, Local, State and Federal Government and Public Safety. To support this goal, small-group projects are developed to immediately impact change throughout the community. Leadership Flagship is an intense, immersive group learning experience that stresses the importance of leadership through service and provides an opportunity for community collaboration.

Participation & Selection 

Class participants come from every sector of our community and are selected by a committee of Leadership Greater Huntsville graduates based on the following criteria: High standards of personal integrity, record of achievement in community activities, a desire to increase community involvement, the ability to set and attain goals, the commitment of necessary time and effort to complete the program.

I applied for Leadership ten years after having served as the Mayor of Huntsville. My application was due to a belief that I could share experiences with future leaders and not to gain much knowledge myself. It was a pleasant surprise that I was able to accomplish both, as well as to solidify many great friendships that will last. My expectations were exceeded by a large amount.
