Town of Tecumseh to provide real-world scenarios for leadership education

The Town of Tecumseh is partnering with Continuing Education for the upcoming Applied Leadership Program.

As the industry project partner, the Town of Tecumseh will provide real-world case scenarios for participants to address, and will offer valuable feedback on the capstone presentations at the end of the program.

“We are honoured to partner with the University of Windsor’s Applied Leadership Program,” said Michelle Drouillard, director of people and culture for Tecumseh. “This collaboration is a fantastic opportunity for our municipality to contribute to the development of future leaders while benefiting from fresh perspectives on our real-world challenges. By engaging with the program participants, we aim to foster a dynamic exchange of ideas that will ultimately enhance the services we provide to our community.”

The online program offers participants a unique opportunity to connect with industry leaders, enhance their leadership and soft skills through teamwork, and develop effective communication strategies and leadership plans that align with organizational strategies.

Participants will be encouraged to motivate and inspire others by practising hands-on tactics and acquiring the skills necessary to lead resilient teams to successful outcomes. The experience culminates in an industry-sponsored capstone project, providing practical application of the skills learned.

Organizations are invited to send their key individuals who require leadership training or have been identified as potential future leaders.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Town of Tecumseh for this virtual offering of Applied Leadership,” said Jennie Atkins, executive director of Continuing Education. “Their insightful case scenarios will provide our learners with valuable opportunities to apply the skills they’ve acquired throughout the program.”

Registration is open to current and aspiring managers, supervisors, and industry leaders. The classes will be held online every Thursday from 5 to 8:30 p.m., from Oct. 17 to Dec. 12.
