Mar. 15 - Leadership Southeast Georgia Continues 2018 Classes with Session Two in Liberty and Bryan Counties

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

March 15, 2018 - Leadership Southeast Georgia, a regional leadership development program, held its second of five sessions in Bryan and Liberty counties. The session’s focus was on natural resources along Georgia’s coastline and overall awareness of personal leadership styles to be able to explore strategies for development.

“This session was highly beneficial for participants in every field,” said Lee Beckmann, Leadership Southeast Georgia’s Board Chairperson. “Our state’s and region’s natural resources play a vital role in every field, and understanding the ins and outs of those resources will help participants make better overall decisions.”

On the first day of the session, the class traveled by boat to Ossabaw Island where they were given a tour of the island and the Eleanor Torrey West House. After departing from Ossabaw, the group traveled by bus to the Ford Plantation for a tour of the site, dinner and a presentation made by Trip Tollison, President and CEO of the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) on regional economic development. The class enjoyed a low country dinner and a social gathering while there.

On the second day of the session, the class traveled to Fort Stewart where they listened to speakers, Tim Beaty, Chief of Fish and Wildlife Branch for the U.S. Army at Ft. Stewart, and Doug Haymans, Director of the Coastal Resources Division (CRD) of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

The class then shifted focus to leadership with a review of the CPI 260 assessment and explored personal leadership styles for professional development. The CPI 260 (California Psychological Inventory) is a personality assessment designed to provide complex insights for use in executive recruitment and leadership development.

Since January 1999, representatives of business, government, education and non-profit organizations in 10 southeast Georgia counties have taken part in creating a leadership network for regional community and economic development.

The annual five-month program is designed to grow and inspire engaged community leaders to improve the overall quality of life in our area. This year, the class is sponsored by Evans General Contractors, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, the Savannah Airport Commission, Georgia Southern University, and The Sack Company (SACK).

The next session will be held in Camden County in late March.
