LEADERSHIP USA™ — an exciting new nationwide leadership development resource. We are opening regional offices across the country in 2017 and kicking of the FIRST region right here in Denver with LEADERSHIP USA™ COLORADO.
LEADERSHIP USA is a membership organization that offers high-quality leadership development education for leaders of our member companies, via a monthly live seminar with world-class instructors, who present on diverse topics. We function as an outsourced training resource for small-to-medium-sized companies and as a supplement to established leadership programs within larger corporations. Since it can be cost-prohibitive and time-consuming for companies to bring instructors in-house each month, we bring them to our member community through monthly one-day learning events. Leaders from member organizations attend seminars in any region where they live.
Please join us for an informational networking breakfast on June 8, 2017 at our venue, CU South Denver (formerly the Wildlife Experience), from 8:30 to 10:00 AM to learn about the program and meet our local team. Leaders in HR, T&D, TM, and OD from some of the best companies in Colorado will be there, so it will be a great networking opportunity as well.
A representative from each member company will form a Leadership Advisory Council (LAC), which will meet quarterly and select the courses and faculty for the upcoming year based on their most pressing leadership development needs. The LAC is meeting this fall to plan our 2018 curriculum, and I’d love for you to be part of this planning process as a founding member of our region. LAC members attend the monthly learning events at no charge.
To see the quality of our educators (all Speaker Hall of Fame, Certified Speaking Professionals, or bestselling authors), please see the linked flyer below, detailing our first three seminars in October, November, and December! As a special incentive, we are waiving membership dues for the 4th quarter, so you’ll only pay the registration fee of $299 per attendee. I hope to see you at the breakfast! Please RSVP at Laura@LeadershipUSA.biz, or Online, or call 303-471-7401. If you’re not in charge of leadership development for your organization, please feel free to pass these materials along!

LEADERSHIP USA is now forming regions in major cities across the U.S., including COLORADO. Membership allows your leaders to attend seminars at reduced member rates in any region with one membership fee. LEADERSHIP USA functions as an outsourced training resource for small-to-medium-sized companies and as a supplement to established leadership programs within larger corporations. Since it can be cost-prohibitive and time-consuming for companies to bring instructors in-house each month, we bring them to our member community.
LEADERSHIP USA regions will hold a one-day leadership seminar each month (9:00 AM to 2:30 PM). These learning events are taught by Hall of Fame speakers, bestselling business authors, Certified Speaking Professionals, faculty from the top business schools, as well as your recommended educators.
LEADERSHIP USA is truly a collaborative leadership development effort of our member organizations. Each company will appoint one senior person in HR, OD, TM, or T&D to sit on the Leadership Advisory Council (LAC), which will determine the learning needs for the following season.
LEADERSHIP USA COLORADO monthly seminars begin in October 2017 (membership pricing: $299 per person).
