Mission

Leadership Montana exists to develop leaders committed to building a better Montana through knowledge, collaboration, and civility.

Description

Through our unique educational programming, we gather some of the most accomplished minds to deeply discuss current issues facing Montana. At the same time, participants enhance their own leadership skills through our curriculum, Leading in Montana, designed specifically around our class members’ interests and needs. Once participants complete the program, they join our esteemed alumni network consisting of the state’s most influential professionals. With an increased awareness and a commitment to service, our alumni shape Montana’s future with enhanced leadership skills and a deepened knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing Montana. Leadership Montana also provides training for the citizenry of our state through special programs and events like our annual signature event, The Confluence, and the Lessons in Leadership speakers series.

Programs

Flagship Program

Target Audience: Adult
Average Size: 40 - 50

At the heart of our work is our flagship program, an eight-month educational experience offering participants a unique opportunity to develop strong leadership skills along with personal and professional growth. Every month from September to April, our class of about 40 participants meets in a new Montana community to gain a deeper awareness of issues affecting our state, build powerful connections with their classmates, and connect with a network of committed alumni who live and work throughout Montana.

Masters Class

Target Audience: Alumni
Average Size: Less than 20

Upon graduation from Leadership Montana, alumni are invited to continue their leadership journey through our new Masters Class. Established in 2017, the Masters Class is a shorter and smaller class experience allowing participants to dive deeper into issues facing Montana as well as their own leadership journey. This three-day, three session experience will build on the Leadership Montana experience by digging deeper into community issues, leadership theory, and Gracious Space. We will utilize the leadership curriculum from James Kouzes and Barry Posner – Leadership Challenge, and accompanying assessment called the Leadership Practices Inventory. Their model consists of five behavioral practices that has been widely researched, has an intuitive appeal, assesses behavioral practices, measures behavioral change according to peers, and highlights the interplay between leaders and their partners. This is significantly different that common leadership training models which tend to focus solely on leadership characteristics and attributes. Without recognizing the behavioral interplay between people, and more important, not measuring change, poor outcomes will continue to be seen in traditional leadership training outcomes.
