On Wednesday, September 28th, the 2022 Leadership Emanuel class met at the Fulford Center to discuss Practices of Exemplary Leadership. The group covered the practices of leading by example, aligning personal values with your goals, and defining expectations of those you’re leading. The class then moved to America Knits for a tour of both facilities. The leadership class learned about the screen-printing process as well as the cut-and-sew process, each housed at separate locations here in Swainsboro.
Leadership Emanuel is a program sponsored by the Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce and funded in part by the Millcreek Foundation. Its intent is to build better, more informed leaders in our community through a series of sessions emphasizing practices of exemplary leadership, business and industry tours, and group discussions on issues facing our community both now and in the future. The sessions meet at various locations throughout our county allowing the participants to experience the opportunities available, better equipping them to be more effective leaders for the future.
