UPDATE: We have been monitoring efforts to keep people safe from the COVID-19 virus as governments, universities, and businesses prepare to reopen. After much consideration, we have decided it is not possible for us to achieve our learning objectives and deliver the same invaluable and impactful experience that previous Fellows had the opportunity to receive given the current situation and restrictions this fall. We will continue to monitor the situation and potentially offer a spring cohort if conditions change. The application will re-open when we are able to have a program again. Thank you for understanding the situation. We encourage you to sign up to receive a notification when the application reopens for the next offering.

This course will change you—professionally and personally. Are you ready?

  • Do you want to make a greater impact in your organization?

  • Are you ready to be a stronger and more effective leader?

  • Do you enjoy inspiring others to higher performance toward a shared vision?

If you answered yes to all three, then Leading for Results might be for you. This intensive two-week program is designed to develop leadership skills for local government professionals. Participants graduate from this program with a deeper understanding of their individual leadership strengths, skills for improving their organizations, and a renewed passion for public service.

A group of 25 individuals will be selected as Local Government Federal Credit Union Fellows for each of the two cohorts.

Why a “cohort”? You will not just attend a course. You will become part of a cohort of dedicated professionals—a group of people who will inspire you to be a better leader, in class and in the future.

Who should apply? Qualified candidates include local government department heads, supervisors, heads of special projects, fairly new managers of small jurisdictions, or assistant managers of larger jurisdictions.

How to Apply: Sign up a the top of this page (https://www.sog.unc.edu/courses/leading-results-lgfcu-fellows) to receive an email notification once the application opens.

Tuition: With the generous support of Local Government Federal Credit Union, individuals selected as LGFCU Fellows will attend this program tuition free. Participants’ organizations pay for hotel and travel expenses to attend the classes held in Chapel Hill.
