New challenges are constantly placing pressures on today’s leaders whether they have formal positions or are the "go to” person. Now more than ever, everyone in the organization needs a deep understanding of leader- ship principles and help in tailoring those principles to their own work realities. Everyone can benefit from leadership guidelines that enable them to become more efficient, effective and productive in their jobs.


The program certification includes seventeen (17) individual modules designed to be completed by attending four consecutive, two-day sessions. These sessions are offered once or twice each year (as necessary) over a two-year period. Because the modules need not be taken in sequence, a participant may stop or miss a session if an emergency prevents regular attendance, and re-enter when space in the program is available. 

The Basic Principles: Building Trust Under Pressure is a pre-requisite for all other modules. This is scheduled prior to some of the modules to allow new participants to begin the program. Subsequent modules may be taken in any sequence.First timers must complete Basic Principles. Modules 1 - 4 may be taken in any order. 

Presentation & Materials 

Class size is limited to 20 people to provide maximum opportunity for participants to benefit from the instructor-led multi-media activities. Each participant receives a binder containing workbooks for each skill unit, including observation and planning forms. MREA will also be incorporating some on-line discussion groups in between the modules to keep the learning fresh and relevant.


Eloise Thorson, Customized Training Representative from Central Lakes College in Staples, has customized this series for electric cooperatives and has been teaching the course for MREA since 1996. Her expertise has resulted in over 200 co-op employees from over 30 cooperatives to become certified in leadership.
