Kellogg Community College’s Nonprofit Education and Training Institute (NETI) is bringing a nationally known business consultant to Battle Creek next month to facilitate a workshop on leadership.

The workshop, titled, “LeaderStep 7: The 7 Steps of Intentional Leadership,” will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Headquarters, 1 Michigan Ave. East, Battle Creek. The cost for the workshop – which includes a light breakfast and lunch – is $25 in advance (by Feb. 1) or $30 at the door.

The leadership workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Gary McGrath, an author, business leader and college instructor who has been a leadership consultant since the early 1990s. Workshop participants will be provided with a clear path to effective leadership skills through seven steps that will help them learn how to create and apply a “personal leadership brand” that engages employees builds more productive teams.

Workshop participants will also receive:

  • Insights into their leadership foundation and emotional intelligence
  • Access to a research-based approach to understand and expand their unique leadership journey
  • A comprehensive workbook to use as a leadership guide

Kim Andrews-Bingham, program coordinator for KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department, which manages NETI, said the LeaderStep 7 program is offered nationally for $199, but event sponsors including the Battle Creek Community Foundation and Old National Bank make this “exceptional learning opportunity” available in Battle Creek at a deeply discounted rate. The Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce and Sam’s Club provided in-kind donations that also helped to bring the workshop to Battle Creek.

“This workshop is a great value and opportunity for our local nonprofits, in particular, which understand the importance of strong leadership but often struggle with limited budgets for things like leadership development,” Andrews-Bingham said. “This workshop will help participants at all levels of management across disciplines to learn how to lead more intentionally in their communities.”
