The Voice of Business

  • Coaching & Developing Leaders

    Decatur Emerging Leaders: A group of young professionals from different backgrounds and industries in the Greater Decatur area, providing unique opportunities to network with peers, volunteer in the community, and develop professionally. By building connections with peers, local businesses and institutions, these leaders secure the community's future and ensure it remains vibrant and inclusive. 

    Decatur Leadership Institute: Fills the need for active involvement of informed and dedicated citizens in community leadership roles. Provides weekly sessions each fall where participants experience on-site learning and gain an inside view of the industries and issues that shape the Decatur area. The program includes team-based service learning projects and concludes with a graduation ceremony in early December.  

    Decatur Leadership Institute Alumni Association: Previous graduates of DLI continue their community involvement and development through networking, serving on community boards and committees, professional development, and providing scholarships for future DLI classes. Keep in touch through the DLI Facebook page or contact the Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce.

    Decatur Leadership Masters Program: Provides intensive character- and results-based coaching, collaborative learning, and training to develop “bench strength” of leaders within local businesses, non-profits, and government entities. The emphasis is on developing great character, influence, and commitment of people at all career stages who are capable of leading others to produce the results necessary for their businesses to thrive and grow. 

    Competitive Edge Coaching: Why do so many successful people have an executive coach? Because they know from experience that even their highly refined ability to see what is needed is limited by their own assumptions and beliefs. Professional coaching is tailored to the needs of individuals and teams to achieve more of their goals, more often. Contact the Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce for more information or to schedule a complimentary executive coaching session with our Certified Business Coach.

    Candidate Academy: The non-partisan Macon County Academy of Political Leadership identifies, encourages, and prepares citizens who are interested in public service or thinking about running for public office, as well as political volunteers and those who simply want to understand election process.

    DISC Behavioral & Values Assessment: Measures a person’s preferred behavioral style, motivational style and personal drivers – how and why people do what they do. Provides practical understanding and skills critical to communication, leading or working in teams, sales, and conflict resolution.
