Executive Director begins leadership class

Congratulations to executive director Christian Gilbert on his acceptance into the Center for Leadership class with Leading Age Kansas. Sixteen individuals from across the state were chosen for the competitive program and will embark on a yearlong journey to improve their leadership acumen.

To apply, Christian had to complete a process that included an application, essay and two letters of recommendation. The yearlong program includes four in-person classes and monthly conference calls focused on discovering authentic leadership, advocacy and community relationships.

"It's empowering, and motivating," said Christian. "So far, I have learned how to advocate for our seniors through the legislative process as well as the importance of establishing relationships with our representatives. I've learned a lot about my personal leadership style and have been provided with tools to help empower those I lead."
