Leadership Frisco

Mission Statement:

Leadership Frisco’s mission is to develop a pool of qualified, highly motivated individuals who are interested in expanding their leadership skills, deepening their sense of civic responsibility, and becoming more involved in their community as a whole.

Value:

Class members and Leadership Frisco graduates can utilize skills developed in the program for personal and professional growth and community involvement.

Goal:

To develop a pool of qualified, highly motivated individuals who are interested in expanding their leadership skills, deepening their sense of civic responsibility, and become more involved in their community.

Leadership Frisco is a nine-month community leadership program sponsored by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. Each class starts with a team building day and includes a full day each month dedicated to exploring the inner workings of Frisco’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, health services, and public safety. Members will also have the opportunity to learn about and practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community. Members of the program will also select and complete a class project during their year that benefits Frisco.

Reasons to participate or invest in an employee?

  • Class members work in groups to complete a community service project. This requires everyone to practice project management skills, learn traits of effective teamwork, assess their individual strengths and weaknesses and use organizational and problem-solving skills.
  • Class members interact with one another and with instructors, facilitators, and speakers, increasing their network and making valuable connections with people from a variety of backgrounds and industries within our community.
  • Class members are exposed to a wide variety of perspectives about the community. Each class session focuses on a different topic, ranging from business ethics and nonprofits to diversity and education. This helps them understand our community better and the resources available, which contributes to job performance.

The Leadership Frisco Advisory Council has closed the application process for the 2018-2019 year for Leadership Frisco Class XXII. Late applications are not accepted. Leadership Frisco Class XXIII Applications will be posted in May 2019.
