Leadership 2.0 adds schedule flexibility

LISA GREEN | The Journal Gazette

Leadership 2.0 is changing its strategy.

Starting in February, the program will be offered as a monthly workshop series, but participants can attend a single session or all of them.

The change was announced Monday.

Leadership 2.0 is a program of Greater Fort Wayne, Inc., designed to provide advanced training for current and aspiring leaders. The change allows those with the busiest schedules more flexibility.

The rebooted Leadership 2.0 will continue offering sessions to help participants more confidently lead, regardless of their position in an organization, a news release said.

"We're opening up Leadership 2.0 to be more customizable, more fast-paced, and more user-friendly," said a statement from Barry Schrock, director of leadership programs at GFW Inc., a chamber organization.

"Participants can choose the training they need, get targeted instruction in as short as a 90-minute session, then take that knowledge right back to their teams and start making a real difference right away," Schrock said. "That's how we help people, businesses, and our community reach their full potential."

The first workshop, "How to Be a Super Connector," is slated for Feb. 11, offering techniques for navigating networking events and building genuine business relationships. Additional workshops will be offered monthly through October.

Registration is required, but everyone is eligible. Workshop fees start at $75 and sessions last 90 minutes or three hours, depending on the subject matter. Participants will receive materials such as leadership assessments, selected books, and training manuals.

Workshop registrations will be accepted on a rolling basis at Interested applicants seeking more information may contact Schrock at or 260-203-5756.
