JACKSON, WY— To the question “are good leaders born or bred,” Sandy Hessler answers “yes.”
“I think there definitely are people who just woke up and had that ease and grace to motivate people,” Hessler says. “That being said, I think all of us can be leaders.”
Exactly how to be a leader is what Hessler hopes to facilitate as the instructor of Central Wyoming College’s new Leadership Studies Certification Program. The program is offered in a series of four courses. The first, “Foundations of Leadership,” begins January 15.
Hessler is co-director of CWC’s Start-Up Intensive, which has helped countless small businesses build their foundation in Jackson. Still, Hessler says, too many people don’t understand what effective leadership should look like, because no one’s ever taught them.
On the second episode of Buckrail’s new podcast, we sit down with Hessler. Take a listen below, or download the episode on Apple Podcasts.
The first course of the series, “Foundations of Leadership,” meets every Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 from January 15 through March 19 with simultaneous delivery to the CWC Riverton campus. There will also be a four-hour face-to-face workshop delivered on February 2 at the Center for the Arts in Jackson. Cost is $276 in-state, $370 out of state.
