The Transformational Leadership Program is the bonafide leadership program in New Braunfels, Texas focused on strategically positioning you as a prepared and capable leader ready to rise to any challenge with solutions that benefit wherever you choose to live, work, and play. The program is a 10-month series of two-hour sessions covering how to manage your personal brand, leading inclusively, navigating negotiations, conflict resolution skills, pivoting in an ever changing business world, a public speaking workshop, and how to embed yourself in the community through volunteerism, government, community involvement, and authentic leadership. The program concludes with a Capstone Project Presentation and a graduation ceremony at the Texas Emerging Leaders Annual Leadership Ball each January.


Selected Participants of the 2022 Transformational Leadership Program will be given the opportunity to hear from leaders across various sectors in the community about topics relevant to leading effectively and emerging in your leadership journey.
