With their classwork behind them, members of the class of 2016-17 are working on their community projects and pointing toward their graduation from Leadership Hancock County.
On Wednesday, March 8, the board of directors of Leadership Hancock County set the calendar details for the class graduation. The celebration will start at 5:30 p.m. on May 3 in the conference center at NineStar Connect, 2243 E. Main St., Greenfield.
The class finished the classroom portion of its studies on Wednesday, March 1. Leadership II Day featured presentations from a coach from Dale Carnegie in the morning; and an afternoon session led by Hancock Regional Hospital CEO Steve Long on situational leadership.
The topics were a fitting conclusion for the 25 class members, who received pointers on public speaking that will help them when they present the results of their community project during the graduation ceremony. They also learned an important aspect of effective leadership: adapting a leadership style to fit the environment and/or to get through to a person you seek to influence.
The class was held in the conference center at the Wortman Cancer Center on the campus of Hancock Regional Hospital in Greenfield.
