The Leadership Buckhead program provides thoughtful, structured opportunities to stretch your thinking, your capabilities and your definition of “success”. As a bonus, you will build new friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime.
The Leadership Buckhead program was an amazing experience and a true year of self-reflection. I took the time to sit quietly and reflect, which we often do not make the time for. I met some amazing people that are now some of my closest friends. It is hard to explain the experience to others, but it is something I am so glad I had the opportunity to participate in.
My experience with Leadership Buckhead was invaluable because it forced me to step away from my work and day to day personal life and take some time to reflect on what is really important to me. I have tried to do this several times through other programs but was not successful because I kept getting pulled back into work or other things and did not take the time needed to do this. Leadership Buckhead helped because they offered a structured program that made me take the time. Also, the relationships I built during this process always had me looking forward to our next meeting so I could see all my classmates again. I would highly recommend this to anyone at any point in their life or career. I felt like this program helped me in all areas.
Leadership Buckhead was an experience that I will never forget. I was able to develop a deep personal relationship with my class and an even deeper relationship with my community. The program teaches life skills that can be hard to find in our everyday life. During the program, I was able to reflect on my ethics & values, my legacy, and my community. I believe that Leadership Buckhead is helping to foster the next generation of leaders that will continue make Atlanta a fantastic place to live, work, or play.
The Leadership program caused me to examine my life from many different perspectives – my priorities, my strengths and weaknesses, and what I wanted to accomplish in life. In turn, those reflections, in part, caused me to make significant changes in my personal and professional life shortly after completing the program. I also made great friends through the program, with whom I continue to keep in contact. And our group had great fun along the way.
