In 2018, the Abilene Chamber of Commerce began a unique leadership training program called RISE (Relationships, Insight, Service and Engagement). The goal of the program is to elevate Abilene’s emerging leaders. After experiencing the training first-hand, I believe the program is ideally suited for members of Abilene Young Professionals.
RISE is a nine-month, intensive and participant-interactive leadership training program designed and conducted by a proven and respected leadership trainer. Participants dialog with other emerging and key leaders in Abilene, apply the learning through their current role in his or her organization, develop and grow as a professional with stretching commitments, and build supportive relationships with the community of leaders in Abilene.
My RISE classmates and I had a very rewarding experience. You can read some of our comments, or get more information about the upcoming program on the RISE page. I encourage you to discuss with your employer and apply. Applications are now open here through July 25.
