Leadership Training Program – A Lifestyle of Leadership

Start Here: A Lifestyle of Leadership

Hesston College’s Leadership Certificate program draws on the leadership competencies outlined by the Kansas Leadership Center and the expertise of program faculty to create a well-rounded, holistic curriculum that is customizable to a company’s leadership needs and goals.

Taking management to leadership is about working on the individual. The program teaches leaders to become more in tune with their strengths and vulnerabilities as well as their personality and conflict styles, thereby becoming more effective leaders.

“More programs talk about ‘Here are the five tools we want to give you.’ Because tools make sense. What was lacking in that methodology is understanding how you interact with the tool, how you interact with the people. And that’s something I think Hesston College and their instructors know very well.”
– Lamar Roth, Director of Human Resources, Excel Industries, Inc., Hesston, Kan.
