On September 28th leaders from across all sectors of Henderson County attended the 7 Habits for Managers: Essential Tools and Skills for Leading Teams training at Blue Ridge Community College. Park Ridge Health partnered with FranklinCovey to bring this leadership development seminar to the community at a low-cost of $99 per person.

“The 7 Habits for Managers training was an awesome day of learning for business, non-profit, and educational leaders from across our community.  The powerful message and leadership frameworks shared were empowering tools for so much more than personal and professional growth,” said Dr. John Bryant, Associate Superintendent of Administrative Services. “Each participant was equipped with opportunities to better serve where we work, where we learn, and where we live.”

The proceeds from the event benefited the Henderson County Education Foundation and the local Leader in Me initiative raising over $11,000. The Leader in Me program is FranklinCovey’s whole-school transformation process that teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

“The Education Foundation is so grateful to be the beneficiary of this community leadership event. This will allow us to continue to expand The Leader in Me initiative to more schools in our school system,” said Summer Stipe, Executive Director of the Henderson County Education Foundation.
