Leadership and Organizational Development

UW-Extension develops programs and facilitates processes to assist organizations and collaborations in addressing issues, understanding complex situations, and developing creative solutions. Educational programs strive to increase participants’ knowledge and improve their decision-making abilities. Our educators facilitate collaboration, local leadership development, and community-based problem-solving.  Our educators develop community, governmental and lake leaders across Wisconsin.

Flagship programs include:

Leadership Wisconsin is Wisconsin’s premier leadership development organization with a national reputation for producing highly effective leaders. In order to meet community challenges and recognize opportunities, Wisconsin needs leaders who show initiative, listen intently, understand the breadth and depth of issues, assume responsibility, act with civility and exercise sound decision making.

Wisconsin Lake Leaders Institute enhances skills and broaden capabilities of people in our lake communities, champion effective and communicative collaboration, and foster responsive and useful networks that support lake citizens.
