Leadership Shakopee

Leadership Shakopee

Leadership Shakopee is a seven-session development program designed to give emerging and existing leaders a behind-the-scenes look at our community and the role it plays in our state and global economy. During the seven sessions, the class participates in a series of educational and hands-on opportunities designed to inform and inspire leaders. In addition to going behind the scenes, cohort members will engage in discussions with local elected officials and senior leadership at many of our companies and city/county departments.
