Class members of Verde Valley Leadership Class XII reached the halfway mark of their one-year class Feb. 16. The Filardo Group reviewed the principles of writing effective Vision and Mission statements as well as creating goals that align to them. Class members presented their individual vision and mission statements and received constructive critique from their peers, instructors, and VVL board members.

Dan and Patty Engler then lectured and interacted with class members on the extraordinary and heroic leadership of Ernest Shackleton and the story of his Antarctic exploration of 1914.

The afternoon was completed with Chris Heyer working interactively with the class using the TrueColors program on leadership styles and personality traits. The class worked collaboratively on a scenario leading to a mock city council presentation.
