MANHATTAN – The third class of Leadership KFB kicked off its yearlong study program Jan. 12-14, at the Kansas Farm Bureau headquarters in Manhattan.
Participants included Mindy Andres, Morris County; Alfred Crawshaw, Wilson County; Jessica Flory, Douglas County; Jacquelyne Leffler, Lyon County; Leigh Ann Maurath, Riley County; and Jackie Mundt, Pratt County.
The program focused on creating influential leaders who will engage, create change and look for solutions, not only in agriculture, but also in counties and communities across the state.
Six learning sessions are held throughout the state and include a capstone in Washington, D.C. The program helps participants gain understanding about their personal leadership style, as well as different approaches to problem-solving and conflict resolution. Training in communication skills ranging from public speaking to traditional and social media are also included along with opportunities to engage with leaders on important issues.
