Leadership Kaua'i Welcomes You! Since its inception in 2003, Leadership Kaua`i, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit dedicated to cultivating strong and committed leaders on Kaua`i. We do this by engaging a cross-section of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds, and developing their leadership skills to serve our community collaboratively.
Our Annual Adult Leadership Program takes a class of 15-20 adults through an intensive ten-month mobile classroom program that consists of leadership development and networking through a guest speaker series, professional skills building - critical thinking, decision-making and communication, intergenerational and multicultural bridging in Kaua'i's unique island culture, global leadership, mentoring, collaboration and community service.
At Leadership Kaua‘i, our curriculum is designed to implement an evidence-based leadership model created by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. The Leadership Challenge develops 5 specific leadership practices and 30 behaviors within participants who, after internalizing these practices are able to lead by example to produce meaningful results in their workplace and throughout Kaua‘i’s community at large.
Leadership Kaua'i has a lot of news to share. To follow our daily and weekly activities, please visit our FaceBook page and "like" us to receive automatic updates via FaceBook. You can also click here to join our Email list and receive our quarterly newsletter and other occasional announcements.
