Lake Washington Institute of Technology has established an internal leadership development program designed to provide professional growth opportunities for current and future leaders of the college.
Application for the 2018-19 LEADS cohort is now open through June 29, 2018. See below for information on participation and application requirements.
Learning about yourself, leadership, the college, and the higher education system.
Experiencing new relationships with colleagues and mentors, as well as activities designed to foster growth.
Achieving new insights about yourself as a future leader.
Developing new skills and competencies as an individual.
Succeeding in moving towards your professional goals.
As a learning organization, LWTech is committed to creating an environment that supports employee growth and achievement, including professional development and training opportunities. Such an environment will not only help us better serve students, but will also allow us to attract and retain a diverse, high-quality workforce. Additionally, LWTech is committed to fostering campus leaders who are focused not only on the implementation of the college’s vision, but who are committed to employees, value collaboration and accountability, and model respect and transparency.
A leader is far more than a label—leadership is about taking actions to create sustained, positive transformations within an organization.
The 2018-19 program starts in the Fall quarter and will complete at the end of the
instructional year. Meetings will typically take place on the second Friday of the
month with a few exceptions.
Typically the meetings will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m..
