At LEAD NC, we identify talented, diverse, civic-minded people and equip them with the skills necessary to be leaders in their communities and workplaces. We support North Carolina’s next generation of leaders so they can help North Carolina continue to be a great place to work, live and raise a family.
Leadership Education and Development for North Carolina (LEAD NC) exists to seek out, encourage and cultivate a new generation of community leaders for North Carolina. LEAD NC focuses on leadership development for North Carolinian's who strongly support the following ideals:
Leadership ValuesLEAD NC seeks to cultivate leaders who adhere to the following principles:
We are days away from the inauguration of a new President.
As he is inaugurated, join together with others who share our values on Friday, January 20, for lunch or drinks from 11:45am – 1:00pm at the recently re-opened Tobacco Road Café on Jones Street in Raleigh. We’ll break bread and raise a glass to the power we know and the goodness that exists. Let’s work together to change the State of our Union.
We’ll be raising money to support LEAD NC's efforts to seek out, encourage and cultivate a new generation of community leaders for North Carolina. Give a little, give a lot or simply come to be with others who share our vision of an inclusive, just and fair future for North Carolina.
All are welcome.
Donations are not required, but encouraged to help LEAD NC build a generation of leaders that hold our values. This event is casual and though food and drink are not provided, the full menu of Tobacco Road will be available.
Scout or Candidate – you decide
BECOME A SCOUT
Please join us as we work to find the best progressive candidates in the state. By attending one of our Scout training's you will learn how to identify the leaders we need on a local, legislative and state level. Before we recruit leaders, we need to spend time defining what we are looking for. What qualities? What behaviors? What work habits? What education or issue background? We need someone who can THINK, INSPIRE, MOBILIZE and EMPOWER! There is no cookie cutter that creates great leaders.
Great leaders seldom, if ever, just show up! They need to be identified, recruited and sometimes groomed for a significant period of time. There is no magic place to look, come join us as we teach you what to look for and how to approach the possibility of them becoming a candidate.
