Date: November 20, 2018 - January 31, 2019
Event Description:


Leadership Lab
Nearly twenty years ago, the North San Antonio Chamber locked in on a vision to design a leadership program dedicated to growing three levels of personal and professional development. The program known as Leadership Lab takes participants on a nine-month journey into self-awareness, steps needed to be a true organizational leader and community mindfulness.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary for Leadership Lab which earned Best New Program award from the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives in 1999. A recognition no other local chamber program in San Antonio has obtained. To-date, Leadership Lab has graduated 1,200 business professionals from 100 local businesses, leaned on the expertise, vision and commitment of 20 Chairs and has elected 80 graduates to the Leadership Lab Alumni Board.

Innovative Leadership
In early 2018, the North Chamber launched its second leadership program – Innovative Leadership. The six-month executive-level program centers on the study of innovation, including design and strategic thinking, big data, artificial intelligence and cultural changes businesses experience when teams are empowered to freely innovate. The inaugural class graduated 25 executives from some of the city’s most notable organizations.

Each program is uniquely designed for professionals at key levels of development. Innovative Leadership is ideally suited for executives seeking to take an innovative approach to business, while Leadership Lab is well-matched for professionals seeking to develop their own leadership style and letting it impact the world around them. Applications for both programs are being accepted from November 2018 through January 2019.
