There’s not much difference between effective employees and leaders in any organization. Leadership Watertown has seen young members of the program grow into Presidents and Vice Presidents of local banks, dozens of local successful business owners, City Council members, State Representatives, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce and even a Chief of Police.
When it comes to employee retention, we all know that an engaged employee is a great asset to any organization and will likely stay with an organization longer and in most cases, become an employee that accepts roles of greater importance and responsibility as they grow within a business.
Leadership Watertown is designed to acquaint program participants with the knowledge necessary to effectively participate in community affairs by exposing them to community structure, problems, resources, people and decision makers that compose a community with a well-founded base of informed leaders. Course coverage includes: Welcome and Networking Activity, Manufacturing Tours, Healthcare Industry visits, a session with our Mayor & City Leaders, Education Facility Tours, Fun Social Activities, Executive Hot Seat and Public Services Facility Tours & more.
The nine-session course begins in January of each year, and concludes with a graduation recognition at the Chamber's Annual Meeting in September.
