Chautauqua Leadership Network was a critical piece to my career and leadership journey. As a young professional starting my career, both the curriculum and connections were invaluable in expanding my network and knowledge leading to future opportunities.

During my sessions, I gained practical skills and knowledge about my specific behaviors and traits that I continue to lean on almost daily. I continue to grow as a leader and I can’t imagine where I would be without the CLN experience.

The individuals I met in CLN, and have since developed relationships with, are the difference makers. They have compassion, understanding, and empathy for what is truly happening in Chautauqua County.


Chautauqua Leadership Network’s goal is to provide a continual supply of persons trained in leadership which is above and beyond the training they have in their chosen professions.
