Half the battle of leadership is understanding and connecting with the people you’re leading. Since 1982, the Leadership High Point program has been transforming High Point’s most enthusiastic and engaged citizens into community champions – ones who deeply understand our city, are always up to learn new skills, and love building relationships with others.
