Prior to the session, the Leadership EXCEL class completed the Emergenetics profile survey. Through a series of questions, this survey identifies a person’s thinking & behavioral traits, and is used to create a personal profile. The day was focused on understanding the four thinking attributes and the three behavioral attributes each person exhibits. Through group activities, class discussion and detailed profiles, the participants were given great insight into thinking and behavioral preferences and how to use them to better work with others.
Leadership EXCEL stands for Experience in Community, Enterprise and Leadership. The program is designed to prepare emerging leaders to meet the future leadership needs of our community. Through the exchange of viewpoints and experiences, participants are exposed to the challenges, opportunities, and vital issues affecting Acadia and Jeff Davis parishes. Leadership EXCEL is a program of the Acadia and Jeff Davis Chambers of Commerce.
