“Lean in. Reach Out.” is the 2019 class theme and throughout the year, participants in the program will be challenged to look for opportunities to seek challenges, take risks and pursue their goals.
Class members have been selected from various industries, community organizations, government entities, religious organizations, volunteer programs and other organizations in Cobb County. Throughout the next year, the 50 selected participants will train and study the art of effective leadership through lectures, dialogues and retreats. The goal of their time with Leadership Cobb is to push their own self-discovery, expand upon their pre-existing talents and skills, and to take their leadership abilities from potential to powerful.
Leadership Cobb began in 1983, and continues to this day to be one of the most respected leadership programs in the state.
Kennesaw State University Coles College of Business Executive MBA Program is the Leadership Cobb class of 2019’s yearlong presenting sponsor.
