The Leadership Institute (LI), sponsored by the Puyallup Sumner Chamber of Commerce, is a premier leadership development program designed to identify, educate and motivate a network of community leaders and increase each individual’s capacity to serve the Puyallup and Sumner communities. Selected participants learn through seminars, team project development, panel discussions, direct interaction with community leaders, and a variety of experiential activities.
L I is designed for high potential employees who are ready to focus on core leadership skills and poised to move up in their organizations. For nine months, L I participants receive specialized leadership training frameworks from the book The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes & Posner. This transformative learning opportunity takes an individual’s potential and turns it into powerful performance.
