Wabash County, IN – Grow Wabash County is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2022-2023 cohort of the Leadership Development Wabash County (LDWC) program.

This eight-month program will invite young professionals and emerging leaders to attend monthly classes that will equip them with the tools and skills to better understand themselves, harness their leadership style and best apply their strengths to make an impact in Wabash County. 

Every month between October and May on the third Thursday, participants will attend class at various locations around the county to better acquaint these leaders with the many assets and resources Wabash County has to offer. Throughout the program, the cohort will learn about their abilities through the DISC and StrengthsFinder assessments while also completing at least 25 hours of community service outside of the classroom devoted to completing a project that will serve the Wabash County community. 

In addition to learning about personal leadership and the Wabash County community, presenters from Indiana University Kokomo and Asher Agency’s Anthony Juliano will present on topics relevant to effective leadership such as communication skills for today’s leaders, valuing differences, public speaking, emotional intelligence, effective meeting strategies, and conflict resolution. 

Tuition for this program is $700 for GWC Investors and $800 for the general public. The tuition covers all course materials, assessments, meals and snacks provided throughout the 8-month program. 

Grow Wabash County will also award full tuition to one LDWC applicant through the Jim Smith Scholarship, named for Jim Smith, who recently retired from his position as head facilitator for the LDWC program. Applications for the scholarship are due on September 15 by 4 p.m. and open now at
