The Pryor Center for Leadership Development

"Thank you for your dedication each and every month including the times not in the classroom setting. You have made a difference in so many lives and have touched mine more than you will ever know. I wanted to learn more about leadership but I truly feel I have learned about myself as an individual which is a true bonus.  It has been a very wonderful experience and I have taken so many attributes from the class."
Melissa A. Best Ortiz
Vice President, Lawson Bank

Leadership development is a process. It takes time, practice, and feedback to grow the essential skills of effective leadership. By developing programs in which participants meet once-a-month over several months, we have discovered a higher return on investment and a powerful way to do leadership development. The Institute allows participants to interact with other leaders, learn and practice new leadership skills, and get feedback about their leadership style.

The Pryor Center coordinates this executive level training program for the Clay County Economic Development Council. This six-month program prepares leaders in the Kansas City area community by offering top-quality facilitation and experiential learning techniques. Applications are now being accepted for the Doniphan Leadership Institute. Download an application in order to register today.
